The NBA’s Saturday night slate on DraftKings will feature six games. Some teams will be playing in their first games since the All-Star break while others have already gotten the ball rolling in the second half of the season. We broke down a few options you should consider for DFS here:

NBA DFS value picks for Tuesday February 22nd

Cam Reddish, DAL @ ATL, $4,100
Mikal Bridges, PHO @ CHI, $4,900
P.J. Tucker, HOU @ UTA, $4,000

— Reddish had to split minutes with De’Andre Hunter on Thursday in the Atlanta Hawks’ first game back from the All-Star break and posted a solid stat line. He tallied 31 DKFP on 16 points, four rebounds, two blocks, and two steals. Hunter will be out for personal reasons Saturday, so Reddish should get more looks than usual. It should be noted that Reddish played more than 36 minutes with Hunter available earlier this week. That bodes well for his production in the back half of the season.

— The Chicago Bulls are exceedingly thin at the wing with Otto Porter, Chandler Hutchison, and Denzel Valentine out of commission. Bridges has been on a hot streak from deep and has made 54.5% of his three-pointers over the course of his last five appearances. If he keeps shooting the ball efficiently he shouldn’t have a problem putting together a solid stat line — especially against sub-par defenders.

Tucker came out of the All-Star break firing away from deep and was a perfect 5-of-5 from long range against the Golden State Warriors on Thursday. The Houston Rockets are using small ball to their advantage and made 25 of their 50 shots from beyond the arc against Golden State. Tucker should be able to stretch the floor just fine and pull Rudy Gobert out of his comfort zone with his patented corner threes. The hustle points in addition to those are gravy.
