The Los Angeles Clippers and Los Angeles Lakers were set to play Tuesday night, but the NBA postponed the game out of respect for the Lakers organization, as it mourns the loss of Kobe Bryant. So we’ll continue on with eight games to bet on Tuesday on DraftKings Sportsbook.

Zion Williamson is back in action in his fourth NBA game when the New Orleans Pelicans take on the Cleveland Cavaliers. Zion notched his first of many double-doubles in Sunday’s win over the Boston Celtics. Williamson is supposed to remain on a minutes restriction, but who knows just how long that will last given how well he’s played in limited time. There aren’t many appealing matchups outside of Zion Watch, unfortunately.

Note: Giannis Antetokounmpo has been ruled out for the Bucks vs. the Wizards. As a result the line will be moving rapidly throughout the day. Be sure to check in at DraftKings Sportsbook for the latest spreads and totals.
