Golden State Warriors DFS Notes

Draymond Green played well in his return, totaling five points, 13 assists, eight rebounds, four blocks and a steal Monday against Miami. After missing two games due to protocols, Green picked up right where he left off with a massive all-around stat line that showed off his abilities on both ends of the court. The 13 assists were his second-most of the season and most since Nov. 18. Monday's performance was just Draymond being Draymond, and fantasy managers are surely happy with what he brings to the table.

New Orleans Pelicans DFS Notes

Brandon Ingram played through a sore Achilles on Tuesday but hit just 5-of-18 shots and missed all four of his 3-pointers in a 123-110 loss to the Suns. He still managed to finish with 16 points, six rebounds, five assists, a steal and five turnovers so it could have been worse. It was interesting to see him out there on the second night of a back-to-back after missing two games with the injury but all it really means is that he's healthy and good to go.
