Game Snapshot

565 Utah Jazz (-3.5) at 566 Toronto Raptors (+3.5); o/u 224

7:30 p.m. ET, Friday, January 7, 2022

Venue: Scotiabank Arena, Toronto, Ontario


Utah Jazz DFS Notes

Donovan Mitchell (lower back strain) has been ruled out for Friday's game against the Raptors. Mitchell has been dealing with the back issue for a few weeks now, and the Friday/Saturday back-to-back is a good opportunity to get him a night off. If Jordan Clarkson (lower back tightness) is cleared to play, fantasy managers should expect a big night from him.

Toronto Raptors DFS Notes

Pascal Siakam hit 13-of-23 shots and two 3-pointers for a season-high 33 points, five rebounds, six assists, three steals and a block in Wednesday's 117-111 win over the Bucks. He took advantage of the absence of Giannis Antetokounmpo (non-Covid illness) and posted his best line of the season. The Raps have won four straight games and will try to make it five on Friday against the Jazz defensive-minded Jazz. OG Anunoby and Gary Trent both scored 22 points and Fred VanVleet came back to earth with 19 points on 7-of-18 shooting after four 30-point games in his previous five.
