Anthony Davis is questionable to play against the Rockets on Tuesday due to a right adductor injury. Davis sat out with the injury on Friday, but played through it on Sunday, and looked great. He scored 27 points and blocked three shots in 30 minutes. If Davis can't give it a go, look for Kyle Kuzma and Markieff Morris to pick up minutes.

Houston Rockets DFS Spin

John Wall posted a 14-point, 10-rebound double-double in Sunday's blowout loss to the Lakers. Wall added two triples, five assists, one steal and two blocks in his 34 minutes of floor time, but he also committed an unfortunate four turnovers and shot just 5-of-14 from the field. "Two things for us were the turnovers and transition," head coach Stephen Silas noted after the 18-point loss. "The transition doesn't have anything to do with us being together for a day, a month, or a year. Run back." Turnovers were a problem for Houston tonight, and as a result, they conceded 32 fastbreak points. James Harden committed a team-high seven turnovers to go with 20 points (7-of-14 FG, 4-of-5 FT), two treys, six boards, nine dimes and two blocks over 38 minutes.
