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 Sunday! We are still coming 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.
SGA has already been ruled out for the Thunder tonight which is pretty much the biggest news on the slate. Isaiah Joe started in his place in their last game, and scored 28 real points. Josh Giddey and Lu Dort also get significant boosts, as they lead the team in usage rate with SGA off the court. Overall, we will be locking in multiple Thunder players on Sunday.
Steph Curry + Andrew Wiggins
Both these guys are out, while Draymond Green is questionable. I expect Dray to play, but Jonathan Kuminga would get a boost should he get ruled out. Jordan Poole and Klay Thompson continue to dominate for the Warriors without Curry — and both looks like strong GPP plays on Sunday evening.
Jalen Green + Kevin Porter
Obviously all the remaining starters for Houston get bumps here – but we should see TyTy Washington start once again. He is locked and loaded as one of the best value plays on tonight’s slate. KJ Martin and Jabari Smith also see usage rate increases, and can be used in all formats.
Mason Plumlee will start and see increased minutes tonight and he has shown strong fantasy point per minute ability.
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!
