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 Saturday night…
Players Listed As Questionable
We have just a six game NBA DFS slate on Sunday 1/8/23 but it’s an absolute mess with injuries to monitor. We already have big names like Joel Embiid out — and several big-name questionable players. I’ll do my best to highlight the big ones in this article, but be sure to hop in the discord if you haven’t already for any updates throughout the day.
Luka Doncic (O)
Luka has been officially listed as out — all of Wood, Dinwiddie and Hardaway are borderline locks on this slate with some of the supplementary guys in play as well.
Both Morant and Steven Adams are listed as Q tonight — if both miss we would be looking at plugging in 3+ Grizzlies along with our Mavericks and that would be the majority of the slate. Bane, Tyus Jones, Brooks and Jaren Jackson would be the big winners.
Bam Adebayo + Tyler Herro
If both miss – we will be looking at Highsmith, Lowry and Oladip + Orlando Robinson over Dedmon even though I expect Dedmon to start.
Big bump to Jaylen Nowell and D’Angelo Russell if he misses + Taurean Prince as well.
Bump to Caris Levert and Donny Mitchell once again if he misses.
There are still a ton more injuries to monitor throughout the day – be sure to check into discord + Final Thoughts for any updates.
