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 Friday…
Players Listed As Questionable
We have a huge NBA DFS late leading us into the weekend with a ton of moving parts on the injury reports. I’ll do my best to highlight the big ones early, and I’ll be available to break down or answer any questions in Discord. You can join the Discord for free here.

Donovan Mitchell ($6,700)
Mitchell missed the last game for the Cavs — if he’s out tonight look for Caris LeVert and Darius Garland to be fantastic options. Given that the Warriors are resting everyone, I wouldn’t be shocked to see him out tonight.
LeBron James ($8,100)
Obviously major news here — his absence would make Russ Westrbook and Dennis Schroder top overall plays while Kendrick Nunn would see increased usage as well.
Domantas Sabonis ($7,700)
Sabonis missed last game due to an illness along with Alex Len. We saw Richaun Holmes post a huge game against the Lakers in his absence — if these guys are out again look for Holmes and Trey Lyles to be strong value options.
The entire slate was flipped on its head while I was finishing this — with the Warriors ruling out basically their entire team. Plugging in 2+ Warriors will be the go-to move for most rosters tonight and Jordan Poole becomes one of the top options on the slate.
