There won’t be much NBA action on Tuesday, as only three games are set to be played on the main slate. The three matchups are all set to tip-off between 7:30 and 8:00 p.m. ET. The first game of the night will feature the Los Angeles Clippers and Atlanta Hawks, but the Clips will be without Kawhi Leonard and Paul George because of Covid-19 health and safety protocols. Those absences could have a major effect on fantasy basketball and betting.
Let’s take a look at lineups for Tuesday night.
