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 Thursday…
Players Listed As Questionable
Happy Thursday family! We have a solid seven game NBA DFS slate tonight with one big situation to watch — the Warriors on a back-to-back. I’ll highlight the big names to watch and I’ll be around to answer any questions throughout the day in Discord. You can join the Discord for free here.
Steph Curry + Golden State
This is the biggest spot to watch today with it looking likely that all of Steph Curry, Draymond Green and Klay Thompson will be out. I also wouldn’t be shocked to see Andrew Wiggins sit, but since he just came back from missing a few games maybe he suits up. We are going to have a ton of value here and whoever is starting will be in play. It’s likely that 3+ Warriors are in our lineups tonight with Jordan Poole, Donte DiVincenzo, Ty Jerome and even the likes of JaMychal Green and Jonathan Kuminga viable in all formats. Poole will be the top play on the slate, while Jerome will be the top value on all sites.
I’m expecting LeBron to suit up as he continues to near the all-time scoring record. If out, look for Anthony Davis and Russell Westbrook to become more viable for DFS.
Haliburton is nearing his return, and him being active would not only push TJ McConnell back to the bench but hurt the overall and ceiling projections for the rest of the starting lineup.
Not a huge one here, but we would get some value in whoever starts in his place and guys like Nikola Jokic and Jamal Murray have slightly higher ceilings.
This would be a slight bump to Caleb Martin and Tyler Herro.
