Phoenix Suns Fantasy Spin
Devin Booker (back) will not play on Tuesday vs. the Kings. Coach Kokoskov called him questionable less than an hour ago, but his doubtful tag on the injury report never changed. He'll be day-to-day going forward, but the Suns will be super cautious like they always have if he's not 100 percent. Josh Jackson will draw the start and is worth a look for his counting stats (beware of his percentages/turnovers), Deandre Ayton and T.J. Warren will get a bump in usage and De'Anthony Melton will be a sneaky streamer.
Dallas Mavericks Fantasy Spin
DeAndre Jordan accounted for ten points (2-of-3 FGs, 6-of-8 FTs), 19 rebounds, three blocked shots and two steals in 33 minutes Monday vs. the Lakers. Jordan's three field goal attempts are the least he's had in a game since New Year's Eve, when he took just two shots in a loss to the Thunder. While the first-year Maverick is averaging just 8.0 points per game over his last five, he is also producing 13.0 rebounds per during that stretch. And with his foul shooting no longer a liability, Jordan is a fantasy asset even with his scoring output being slightly lower than what he produced as a member of the Clippers last season (12.0 ppg).
