While Week 20 was packed full of games, Week 21 is much lighter. As a result, many start/sit decisions will be made based on games played. Keep an eye out for players on four-game weeks who may be sitting on the waiver wire, and players on your team who will only take the court twice. Here's the breakdown:
Teams with four games: BOS, BKN, CHA, CHI, DEN, UTA
Teams with three games: ATL, CLE, DAL, GSW, HOU, LAC, LAL, MEM, MIA, MIL, MIN, NOP, NYK, OKC, ORL, POR, SAS, WAS
Teams with two games: DET, IND, PHI, PHO, SAC, TOR
And here are some players to consider starting and some to consider sitting:
Consider Starting: Monte Morris, DEN
Opponents: Mil, @Dal, @SA, @LAL
Even when everyone is healthy and available for the Nuggets, coach Michael Malone still makes sure to find consistent run for Morris. Since the All-Star break, Morris is seeing 25.1 minutes per game and he's registered a fantasy rank of 97. Considering Denver is on a four-game week, he should be able to provide some value as a streaming option, even in leagues as shallow as 12 teams.

Consider sitting: Ja Morant, MEM
Opponents: Orl, @Por, @Uta
Morant's scoring (17.4 points on 48.2 FG%) and passing (6.3 APG) have been solid since the All-Star break. However, the other areas of his game have dragged
