Nets vs Lakers Fantasy NBA: Brooklyn Nets will come into the game after thrashing the Pelicans behind a 24 points outing by Kyrie, while the Los Angeles Lakers lost to the Heat despite a 28 points night by Kentavious Caldwell-Pope. More about BKN vs LAL Dream11 will be given here
Nets season: Brooklyn has not shown its full strength as Durant, Harden, and Kyrie have played barely 3-4 games together, however despite Durant missing time, and then Irving and Harden too, the team is at the 1st place in the NBA Standings for Eastern Conference. Harden has been an enforcer at the offense and though the roster is vulnerable in terms of injuries even if 2 of them are healthy then they can crack the code to the NBA Finals.
Lakers’ season: Lakers were among the top-three in the Western Conference standings, but since losing first Anthony Davis and LeBron James, they have struggled to produce sharp offense, rendering them to 5th spot. The team is mostly dependent upon Dennis Schroeder, Kyle Kuzma, and Montrezl Harrell, but acquiring Andre Drummond can give them an edge, however, he remains rusty after resting for most of the season, while in Cleveland.

Projected Fantasy Points: 46
Uncle Drew is shooting at more than 50% and for a guard who averages 27 PPG+ with this percentage means that he is having a record season. He has put up 40 points+ games too this year and he has shown the league that he is far from being done. He is averaging 9.6 APG for the last 5 games and can be picked as the Super-Player in the Dream11 NBA scenario.
Schroeder will have to assume both primary scorer and playmaker duties with LeBron James out with injury. The guard is also an effective defender who makes it tough to score through his shifty frame. He is averaging an incredible 10 APG and 1.8 SPG in the last 5 games.
Harrell has been in great form this season and he has been able to produce at a terrific rate courtesy of tenacity and skills. He will need to continue his production and some more for a short-handed squad. His minutes may reduce if Andre Drummond is healthy and regains his form.
Harris has played an amazing complementary role in a team full of high-quality players and his 3-pt shooting makes Nets a more potent team night in and night out.
LaMarcus Aldridge: PPG: 13.6 RPG: 4.6 BPG: 1.0 PFP: 27
The veteran Forward is no more a first or second option on offense but can give consistent double-digit production in terms of points, thus he still makes a difference offensively.
Markieff Morris: PPG: 7.1 RPG: 4.6 PFP: 22
Morris has seen an increase in his minutes since the multiple injuries at the Forward spot for the Lakers and has given decent offense and rebounding. He is averaging 13 PPG and 6.2 RPG for the last 5 games.
Jeff Green: PPG: 10.3 RPG: 3.8 PFP: 27
Green stepped up to the plate in the absence of Kevin Durant and has given Nets a lot of impetus, directly resulting in wins. He is averaging a handsome 18 PPG for the last 3 games but his role may decrease with Kevin Durant back from injury.
Bruce Brown: PPG: 8.4 RPG: 4.7 PFP: 19
Andre Drummond(Since joining Lakers): PPG: 9.5 RPG: 6.5 SPG: 1.0 PFP: 28
Kentavious Caldwell-Pope: PPG: 8.9 PFP: 19
PG: D Schroeder(PP), K Irving(SP)
SG: K Caldwell-Pope
SF: B Brown
PF: J Green, M Morris
C: A Drummond, M Harrell, L Aldridge
