Thursday's main NBA slate will be a smaller one, as it will only feature five games, and tip-off times will range from 7:30 to 10 p.m. ET. While there aren't many games on tap, there are plenty of quality fantasy matchups worth attacking in DFS. We've identified a pair to target ahead of the action.

Ameer Tyree got his start in NBA DFS over four years ago. The former DraftKings Nation betting and fantasy writer spent over a year and a half breaking down basketball slates to build optimal lineups there. Now he's locked in on Thursday's five-game slate and has identified a pair of three-man stacks worth considering.

One team Ameer loves: The Portland Trail Blazers. "Anfernee Simons has been carrying the Trail Blazers in January while Damian Lillard and CJ McCollum are sidelined, but the backup point guard won't face the Denver Nuggets on Thursday for personal reasons. That means Dennis Smith Jr. is likely to make his fourth start of the season after averaging 15.3 points, 5.3 rebounds, and 6.0 assists through his first three in December." Ameer says about the matchup.
