Indiana Pacers DFS Notes

Caris LeVert (conditioning) is questionable for Wednesday's game against the Celtics. Due to health and safety protocols, LeVert has not appeared in a game since New Year's Eve. If he has to miss another game, rookie Duane Washington Jr. would remain in the starting lineup. While Washington's percentages haven't been great, the extended minutes have given him the opportunity to be of some value in deeper fantasy leagues.

Boston Celtics DFS Notes

Jayson Tatum accounted for 24 points on 7-of-21 shooting (0-of-7 3-pointers), 12 rebounds and an assist as Boston held off Indiana in overtime Monday. Tatum's shooting woes reappeared Monday, though he hit his most important attempt at the end of the fourth quarter when he sank a 20-footer with 1.8 seconds to tie it up and send the game to overtime. Tatum is still a bit rusty since returning from protocols, but he's more than made up for his poor shooting with strong contributions in rebounds, assists, steals and blocks.
