Atlanta Hawks DFS Notes

Trae Young (lower back soreness) is questionable for Friday's game against the Lakers. Young was held out of Wednesday's win over the Kings, which resulted in Delon Wright getting a spot start. That would again be the case if the All-Star point guard is unable to play Friday night. Wright can be prone to slow starts, but usually has a solid stat line by the end of the night when he's thrust into the starting role. He's worth streaming whenever Young sits.

Los Angeles Lakers DFS Notes

LeBron James hit 12-of-26 shots and three 3-pointers for 31 points, five rebounds, five assists and a block in Tuesday's comeback 122-114 win over the Kings. The Kings went on an 11-0 run in the fourth quarter to take a 96-89 lead and then Bron started hitting threes, assisting, rebounding and scoring, holding off the Kings and getting the Lakers their third straight win and their fourth in their last five games. The guy simply doesn't age, as long as you don't look at his hairline. Bron had 14 points in the fourth quarter tonight.
