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 Saturday! 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.
Giannis is going to miss again today which will once again put a lot of emphasis on the Bucks. All of Jrue Holiday, Bobby Portis and Khris Middleton can be used in all formats.
Luka Doncic is already out for the Mavs, so if Irving were to miss things would really open up. However, he participated in shootaround so I’m expecting him to play. He will be a top option alongside Christian Wood, Tim Hardaway Jr and I don’t mind a flier on Josh Green in GPPs.
Tyrese Haliburton + Myles Turner
We’ve had this situation a few times this season already — if Haliburton misses look for both Andrew Nembhard and TJ McConnell to be strong value plays while Buddy Hield gets a boost as well. If Turner is out, whoever starts in his place would be a top value – most likely Jalen Smith.
Ingram has been crushing so this will be a big one – he’s been taking a lot of shots and a ton of usage / shot attempts will open up here. Obviously CJ McCollum would be a top option – but both Trey Murphy and Naji Marshall will pop for value as well.
This is pretty much all for now – check my article this afternoon for any updates!
