NBA DFS 1/17/23 | Injuries to Monitor

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 Tuesday…

Players Listed As Questionable

Happy Tuesday everyone! The first round of the NFL playoffs came through with a dud last night as the Dallas Cowboys absolutely dominated the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. As someone holding SF and PHI futures, I really wanted Tampa to win that game to make their path to the SB even easier. That being said, it was a fun day of NBA and NFL and we are right back to work with a small four game slate tonight. There isn’t a ton to monitor with such little games, but in typical NBA fashion anything can pop up this afternoon. I’ll be breaking any surprise afternoon news down in my Building Blocks articles and in Discord. You can hop in the Discord for free here.

Giannis Antetokounmpo

This is obviously the main news on the slate, and will pretty much dictate lineup builds. I’m assuming he is playing since we thought he was playing yesterday and didn’t…but you never know in the NBA. If he’s once again out we will be looking at stuffing in 3+ Bucks players with Jrue Holiday and Bobby Portis being must plays. All of the supplementary guys like Brook Lopez, Grayson Allen and Pat Connaughton are put into cash consideration as well.

Paul George

I’m hoping he plays since this is such a big game on national TV, but if he’s out, Kawhi Leonard will once again be a top option and Terance Mann gets a role increase as well.

Bones Hyland

This one isn’t huge but we would definitely see some more shot attempts for the other Nuggets players and Bruce Brown is the main beneficiary in terms of minutes / role increase.
