In OKBET Guide for fantasy basketball, who should you start or bench this week? RotoWire gives a cheat sheet for the highest scoring potential players. The new NBA season has officially begun, and the first full week of the Fantasy season is here.


Each week on OKBET Guide for Fantasy Basketball, we’ll try to spotlight a pair of Start candidates per position for your Fantasy lineups that might turn out to be some of the toughest choices of the week, with an emphasis on players with a start probability of 50% or less in Yahoo leagues. We’ll also prioritize players with four-game weeks to optimize output potential.

Similarly, we’ll highlight one Sit candidate at each position who would normally not be considered for a seat on your bench, with an emphasis on players who have fewer games this week.

Brooklyn Nets at OKBET Guide, Chicago Bulls, Dallas Mavericks, Denver Nuggets, Detroit Pistons, Golden State Warriors, Houston Rockets, Indiana Pacers, Miami Heat, Minnesota Timberwolves, New York Knicks, Orlando Magic, Philadelphia 76ers, San Antonio Spurs, Utah Jazz are among the teams with four games remaining.

Atlanta Hawks, Boston Celtics, Charlotte Hornets, Cleveland Cavaliers, Los Angeles Clippers, Los Angeles Lakers, Memphis Grizzlies, Milwaukee Bucks, New Orleans Pelicans, Oklahoma City Thunder, Phoenix Suns, Portland Trail Blazers, Toronto Raptors, Washington Wizards are among the teams with three games remaining.

Teams who have played two games: Kings of Sacramento

Without further ado, let’s look at some Week 2 start/sit decisions:

  • Terrence Ross, Magic Johnson
  • Start rate of 36%

With Gary Harris (knee) and now Jalen Suggs (ankle) sidelined for the foreseeable future, Ross is filling the starting two-guard spot for the time being at OKBET Guide. The veteran is always capable of hitting long shots and bolstering your score categories. He’s also started the new season with three four-rebound performances, indicating more vitality in that area than usual. Ross might give a momentary scoring lift to your lineup with four games on the schedule this week and a probable starting chance in each.

  • Start with Max Strus and Heat
  • Start rate of 27%

Strus is another sharpshooting guard who can put up points at OKBET Guide, and his playoff experience with the Heat in 2021-22 seems to be paying off early. Strus has started the season with averages of 14.7 points, 4.3 rebounds, and 1.7 assists, as well as 57.1 percent shooting, including 47.1 percent from outside the arc. Even with one flop against the Celtics, his efficiency in the other two games is highlighted. Strus has also seen over 30 minutes off the bench in two games, so he should be set for another busy week with four games on the Heat’s schedule.

  • ALSO THINK ABOUT: Spencer Dinwiddie, DAL (23% starting rate).
  • Terry Rozier, Charlotte Hornets
  • Start rate of 54%

Rozier has had three games this week and is dealing with an ankle strain that has already lost him Sunday’s game against the Hawks at OKBET Guide. The veteran has had a strong start, averaging 23.5 points, 8.5 assists, 7.0 rebounds, and 1.5 blocks in the first two games, but he poses too much danger with the possibility of further absences in the coming days.

  • Starter: Eric Gordon, Houston Rockets
  • Start rate of 6%

Gordon is a senior stalwart on a youthful Rockets club, and he remains a steadying presence who seems to be cemented into his starting small forward job for the time being at OKBET Guide. Gordon should have a decent chance of playing in each of the Rockets’ four games this week since they don’t have any back-to-back sets. The week begins with two games against the surprising Jazz, who allow 116.3 points per game. Over his first two games, Gordon has averaged 14.0 points, 4.0 assists, and 2.5 rebounds, and he can go hot from distance on any given night.

  • Mavericks’ Christian Wood gets the start.
  • Start rate of 45%

Wood’s start rate will not remain this low for much longer at OKBET Guide. Wood has made an immediate impact in Dallas, scoring 25 points in back-to-back games while also grabbing eight and twelve rebounds. He can also help defensively. Even though he’s on the bench, he’s put up the aforementioned numbers in 24.5 minutes per game, allaying any fears about opportunities, particularly with a four-game week ahead.

  • ALSO TAKE A LOOK AT: Isaiah Jackson, Pacers (49% start rate)
  • Trail Blazers’ Jerami Grant sits.
  • Start rate of 86%

Grant is still finding out where he fits in the Blazers’ starting five. Over the first three games, he’s been up and down. Grant will not be as important on the offensive line in Portland as he was in Detroit. In his first three games, he had a decent but below-average average of 15.7 points. With just a three-game week ahead of him, an equally skilled four-game option on your team may provide superior total output.

  • Pistons starter Isaiah Stewart
  • Start rate of 32%

Stewart’s start to the season has been notable at OKBET Guide, as the youthful big man has added three-point shooting to his arsenal and is averaging 11.0 points, 10.3 rebounds, 2.0 assists, and 1.0 steals per game. To be clear, nothing is working well for Stewart on the shooting front in his small three-game sample – he has an abysmal 32.0 percent success rate from the field, including 21.4 percent from distance – but he’s averaging 4.7 three-point attempts per game, which certainly helps pull down the overall numbers. Stewart still has a couple of double-digit scoring totals in the first three games and will get things sorted out in time, with four more opportunities this week to provide good multi-category output for your team.

  • Warriors’ James Wiseman gets the start.
  • Start rate of 44%

Wiseman of OKBET Guide has yet to recapture the starting center spot he had in his rookie season, but he seems to be in good condition after missing the 2021-22 season due to knee difficulties. The teenage big man opens the new week with a string of double-digit scoring performances, averaging 11.0 points, 6.0 rebounds, and 1.3 assists while shooting 72.2 percent. Wiseman’s playing time increased to 20 minutes against the Kings on Sunday, and he might see his minutes increase even more as he gets back into shape. A bench position may not be the worst thing for his fantasy hopes, as he’ll be sharing the court with less of the Warriors’ ultra-high-usage offensive alternatives.

  • ALSO THINK ABOUT: Kelly Olynyk, Jazz (52% start rate)
  • Domantas Sabonis, Kings, is seated
  • Start rate of 66%

OKBET Guide, Sabonis starts the new week with back-to-back double-doubles after a more modest effort in the opening versus Portland, but the greatest blemish on the big man is that he’ll only see the court twice this week. Sabonis’ perspective is harmed by Sacramento’s short schedule. Unless you’re in desperate need of a player, you’ll be better off sending someone with more immediate prospects.
