NBA DFS 2/6/23 | Injuries to Monitor

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 Monday…

Players Listed As Questionable

Happy Monday family! Super Bowl week kicks off with an eight game NBA DFS slate, that looks like it’s going to be absolutely wild when it comes to injuries. I’m expecting this to pretty much be the norm as we approach the all-star break, and there is plenty of situations to monitor on Monday night.  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.

Dallas Mavericks

As I noted in the intro, this slate is going to be crazy. Dallas made a huge trade on Sunday to land Kyrie Irving from the Brooklyn Nets, but that trade hasn’t officially gone through so Irving won’t be available tonight. On top of that, they are already without Luka Doncic and Christian Wood is listed as Questionable. Wood’s status is going to be huge, because without Doncic, Dinwiddie, and Finney-Smith this team is already extremely thin. Tim Hardaway Jr is going to be massively-owned tonight, as well as whoever starts at PG. We will likely be plugging in 3+ Mavs tonight, but the status of Wood is going to greatly affect which ones we play. Check back to my Building Blocks article this afternoon for my updated thoughts on the Mavs situation. As of now it looks like Frank Ntilikina and Jaden Hardy will be top value options.

Brooklyn Nets

Similar to Dallas, Brooklyn was apart of the trade but lose Irving and won’t have their newly acquired guys ready to go tonight. So on top of Irving — they also are without Seth Curry and Kevin Durant. Ben Simmons is also listed questionable…see why I said this slate is a mess? Cam Thomas and Edmond Sumner are virtual locks at their price tags in all formats — but we could be locking in even more Nets players depending on the status of Simmons.

San Antonio Spurs

And we conclude with the Spurs, who have listed Tre Jones and Keldon Johnson as questionable despite already being down Jeremy Sochan, Romeo Langford and Devin Vassell. This situation isn’t as attractive as the Mavs/Nets, but it’s very likely we have value here and if any players from the Spurs make my core I will include them in my Building Blocks article this afternoon.

De’Aaron Fox

Fox has missed the last two games due to personal reasons and is considered doubtful tonight on a back-to-back. Should he miss again, the remaining starters get increased rates with Davion Mitchell stepping into the starting lineup. Malik Monk plays a bigger role as well, we would definitely have interest in the Kings if he’s out on Monday.

Brad Beal

Kyle Kuzma is already out for the Wizards so this could really open things up. I think that Deni Avdija would start in his place and be a top value option, while Kristaps Porzingis would have one of the highest projections on the entire slate.

Isaiah Stewart

Saddiq Bey would most likely start in his place, making him a good value option while Jalen Duren would get a sizable rate increase and be one of the better mid-tier plays on Monday.

I also want to mention that with Steph Curry out, Jordan Poole will be a top option in all formats. Cleveland is also on a back-to-back — so we could see one or two of their guys out including Caris LeVert and Ricky Rubio. Rubio has yet to play on a B2B since returning.
