NBA DFS is widely popular among DFS players, but also one of the most time consuming to research. Players rest and sit-out daily, and this makes accurate minutes projections some of the most valuable information when building lineups. DFS Karma does the work for you in our Projections Portal — with minutes, fantasy points, value and more rates projected out nightly in an easy to read table. You can gain access to the projections by signing up for an NBA premium subscription here. This article will aim to identify some of the important injury situations to monitor throughout the day, and give you an idea of where to go if/when news breaks. Let’s get into Monday…
Players Listed As Questionable
Happy Monday and MLK day to all the faithful readers out there! We have basketball all day and different slates on different sites which is going to create some chaos across the board if playing DFS. There are a few key injuries to monitor, but it isn’t as wild as a usual day since some of the games are not on the main slates. For now, I’ll highlight the key situations we are watching and if anything crazy pops up I’ll be in Discord to answer questions. You can hop in the Discord for free here.
All of Rudy Gobert, Anthony Edwards and Taurean Prince are Q to play today. As of now, I think Gobert is the most likely to miss while Edwards and Prince are most likely playing. If that’s the case, the entire Wolves team is in play for DFS and Naz Reid would be considered a must-play in all formats. If they’re all in, Edwards is the strongest play overall. If Prince misses look for Anderson and McDaniels to get a boost. Nowell would also see a bump if Edwards was ruled out.
Ja Morant (FD)
This game isn’t on the DK slate but has major implications for FanDuel. If he’s out — the entire starting lineup is boosted but Bane and Tyus Jones would become locks. I would plan around having some swaps available should be miss.
We would see Vanderbilt start in his place and it would bump the entire Jazz lineup including Jordan Clarkson who sees a big rate increase.
