Los Angeles Clippers DFS Notes

Serge Ibaka played 21 minutes in Sunday's 106-93 win over the Hawks, tallying 16 points (7-of-8 FGs), two rebounds, two assists, one blocked shot, and two 3-pointers. This is the game that we've been waiting for from Ibaka, at least from a scoring standpoint. This was only his fifth game in double figures, with the 16 points being one off of his season-high. With Isaiah Hartenstein still sidelined, Ibaka is firmly entrenched as Ivica Zubac's (8/13/3 in 25 minutes) backup. That may have something to do with his recent run, as Ibaka has scored 41 points over his last four games. There's no need to rush to pick him up right now, but fantasy managers will want to keep an eye on Ibaka this week.

New Orleans Pelicans DFS Notes

Brandon Ingram hit 11-of-19 shots, 6-of-7 3-pointers and 5-of-5 free throws for 33 points, four rebounds, nine assists, a steal and a block in Tuesday's 128-125 win over the Timberwolves. Ingram was money all night and then launched his final 3-pointer just before the buzzer sounded from well beyond the arc which found nothing but net to win the game for his team. Ingram is hot again, averaging 29 points, 6.7 rebounds, 6.3 assists and 2.7 3-pointers on 55 percent shooting over his last three games.
