Horford played 27.7 minutes for the Thunder in Sunday’s win over the Cavaliers, but he will be out of the lineup Monday vs. the Heat. This game is the second leg of a back-to-back, and Horford has yet to suit up on both legs of a back-to-back this season.
Horford has taken on a larger workload for the Thunder recently on the offensive end, so his absence opens up opportunities for the rest of the roster. Isaiah Roby is a candidate to move into the starting lineup, and he’s performed well in that role so far this season. He’s made nine starts, and he’s averaged 12.1 points and 6.8 rebounds per game in those contests. He’s averaged 26.35 FanDuel points when filling in for Horford in particular, which makes him a solid value option on today’s slate.
The Thunder are currently listed as 7.5-point underdogs vs. the Heat on FanDuel Sportsbook.
