Unlike Tuesday night, where we only had three games in the association. On Wednesday night, we have 12 games on the main slate with tip-off times set between 7:00 p.m. ET and 10:00 p.m. ET. Within those 12 games, we have two games on ESPN. The broadcast night begins at 7:30 p.m. ET with the Los Angeles Lakers and Philadelphia 76ers. That’s followed at 10:00 p.m. ET when the Minnesota Timberwolves will be taking on the Golden State Warriors. There should be a lot of information about who is starting and out, which could affect fantasy basketball lineups and the betting lines.

Let’s take a look at lineups for Wednesday night.
