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…
Players Listed As Questionable
Happy Friday! We are finally back from the All-Star break and since these teams have been off for a week we don’t have a ton of Q tags to dissect this morning, instead I’ll talk about some guys that we already know will be out. 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.
Aaron Gordon remains out for the Nuggets — which should allow Vlatko Cancar to start once again and Jamal Murray and Nikola Jokic see increased ceiling projections.
Kelly Olynyk + Collin Sexton
This is basically the biggest news on the slate — Sexton is out once again which pushes Jordan Clarkson and Talen Horton-Tucker to the top of the projected ownership. THT had a bad shooting night in their last game, but had the ball in his hands a ton and continues to rack up potential assists. I like him to bounce-back tonight. If Kelly O misses, that would boost Rudy Gay but he is also listed as questionable to play. If they’re both out…Juan Toscano-Anderson would get a big bump. Walker Kessler remains firmly in play.
Gabe Vincent takes on more ball-handling duties and is the biggest beneficiary of Lowry’s absence.
This is pretty much all for now – I won’t be shocked to see surprise stuff pop up so stay tuned to my Building Blocks article this afternoon!
