NBA picks: Hornets’ LaMelo Ball remains top fantasy target for Friday amid hot streak

USATSI

Seven games will make up Friday’s NBA schedule. Tyrese Haliburton and Pascal Siakam will play together for the first time ever, but we’re focused elsewhere ahead of the weekend. Two players recently made comebacks from injuries and could end up being some of the most optimal players available. Among them is star Charlotte Hornets point guard LaMelo Ball.

Are you looking for strong returns? Here’s who you should keep an eye on as you look to build lineups on DraftKings and FanDuel: 

Stud: LaMelo Ball

Ball wasted no time putting up big numbers after returning from an ankle injury to face the San Antonio Spurs. He tallied 28 points, three rebounds, five assists, and five steals in his first appearance of 2024. He went on to average 25.0 points, 7.5 rebounds, and 6.0 assists over his next two games. San Antonio won’t have Victor Wembanyama this time around, so Ball could play more minutes in a more competitive game.
