We have an intriguing Week 10 ahead of us in the NBA. It's another jam-packed schedule, with the majority of the league set to play four games. Meanwhile, the Spurs' COVID-19 issues will cost both them and the Pacers a game apiece to begin the week. At this time, it's unclear if the Spurs will have any additional games postponed.
The Rockets and Mavericks also are due to return to action after inclement winter weather in Texas wiped out multiple games for each squad in Week 9.
We have one notable schedule quirk this week: The Wizards are set to play five games, which is excellent news for those rostering Bradley Beal. Russell Westbrook also benefits, of course, though the schedule includes a pair of back-to-backs, so it's possible – if not likely – that Westbrook sits half of at least one of those.
Team with five games: Washington Wizards
Teams with four games: Atlanta Hawks, Boston Celtics, Charlotte Hornets, Chicago Bulls, Dallas Mavericks, Detroit Pistons, Golden State Warriors, Houston Rockets, Los Angeles Clippers, Los Angeles Lakers, Memphis Grizzlies, Miami Heat, Minnesota Timberwolves, New York Knicks, Oklahoma City Thunder, Phoenix Suns, Sacramento Kings, Toronto Raptors, Utah Jazz
Teams with three games: Brooklyn Nets, Cleveland Cavaliers, Denver Nuggets, Indiana Pacers (originally four games), Milwaukee Bucks, New Orleans Pelicans, Orlando Magic, Philadelphia 76ers, Portland Trail Blazers
Team with two games: San Antonio Spurs (originally three games)
Without further ado, let's examine some of the tougher start/sit decisions for Week 10:
