Oklahoma City Thunder SF/PF Danilo Gallinari and PF/C Nerlens Noel have been ruled out for Tuesday night’s game vs. the Brooklyn Nets.

Gallo is being listed with a calf contusion after playing 29 minutes on Monday night against the Philadelphia 76ers. He scored 18 points with seven rebounds, so this is likely just some rest. Noel didn’t play last night and is dealing with an ankle sprain sustained in Saturday’s win over the Cleveland Cavaliers.

With the Thunder hurting in the frontcourt, we should see more of Mike Muscala and Darius Bazley against Brooklyn. Both players are priced under $4K on DraftKings and are good value sources on tonight’s six-game slate. A full-blown Thunder stack of Chris Paul ($6,900), Shai Gilgeous-Alexander ($6,800), Steven Adams ($6,600) and Dennis Schroder ($6,500) is also in play. Those four should see around 32-38 minutes and the Nets have been struggling lately.
