Miami Heat DFS Spin

Kyle Lowry double-doubled across 36 minutes on Sunday, tallying 14 points, 12 assists, five rebounds, two triples, one steal and just one turnover in a 115-113 loss to Sacramento. Lowry was one of the few Miami players who had his shot working for him early, as he was responsible for the Heat’s only first-quarter 3-pointer while the rest of the squad went 0-of-8 from distance in the opening quarter. Miami never really turned it around from distance, with the guys not named Lowry combining to go 7-of-27 from beyond the arc, and that was a key factor in Miami's two-point loss to Sacramento on Sunday.

Golden State Warriors DFS Spin

Draymond Green has cleared the league's health and safety protocols, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic. Having missed Golden State's last two games, Green appears poised to return to action Monday night when the Warriors host the Heat. Consider the veteran forward to be probable, with Otto Porter likely headed back to the bench if Green is officially cleared to play. In spite of the likely demotion, Porter is worth holding onto for the time being, as he has provided 3rd-round value over the last two weeks.
