Tonight, your Toronto Raptors look to get back into the win column as they take on James Harden and the Houston Rockets.

You can play along with this and the other eight games on tonight's jam-packed NBA slate by joining one of the many one-day fantasy basketball tournaments available on FanDuel. You can even win some real cash money in the process.

Here's how:

  • Click here to enter the contest we're promoting tonight. It only costs $2 to play, the top 33,900 entries win an immediate cash payout, and first place walks away with a cool $25,000.
  • If you're not sure how FanDuel works, check out our initial post on the partnership from the start of the season.

Since it can be fun to have some rooting interest in your fantasy lineup, here's our preferred Raptors play for the week:

Kyle Lowry ($8,900)

Dwane Casey is taking every opportunity to rest guys as the regular season winds down, so you need to keep an eye on the injury report close to tip-off to see if anyone gets a boost due to the absence of another player. In the meantime, Lowry is coming off a rest game himself, so there's a good chance that he's good to go for this one.

Over his last five games, Lowry is averaging 27.2 points, 6.4 rebounds, 6.8 assists, 2.2 steals, 0.2 blocks, and 3.8 turnovers, good for 46.1 fantasy points per game. The last time he was coming off a game of rest in early March, he dropped 47.3 fantasy points by scoring 32 points and adding four rebounds, five assists, three steals, a block, and five turnovers.

Having not played since Sunday, Lowry should be fresh as a daisy in this one and ready to rack up the fantasy points against one of his former teams.

Now, let's head on down to the comment section and construct some winning lineups together!
