Oklahoma City Thunder PG Chris Paul is being listed as out due to personal reasons for Monday’s game vs. the Dallas Mavericks. I won’t go into any speculation as to why Paul is sitting out.

Fantasy basketball analysis: Thunder PG Shai Gilgeous-Alexander

With CP3 not playing, SGA should be the lead PG and gets a very nice boost on DraftKings’ main slate at $7,300. He’s a good chalk play given the amount of usage and shots he’ll pick up with Paul out. The Mavs are also a good matchup given the fast pace they play at compared to the Thunder. Dennis Schroder ($6,800) would be the contrarian pivot of sorts off of Gilgeous-Alexander. I’d also take Luguentz Dort ($3,400) as a decent value play.
