Oklahoma City Thunder Fantasy Spin
Steven Adams (left ankle) came up just shy of a double-double on Saturday, scoring 12 points (3-of-5 FGs, 6-of-8 FTs) with nine rebounds, two assists, two block and one steal in 35 minutes against the Spurs. Adams battled through an ankle tweak last game, but suited up and help the Thunder avenge their tough loss to the Spurs on Thursday. He's having arguably the best season of his career thus far and is averaging 13.8 points, 9.6 boards and 2.0 steals on 67.5% shooting over his last five games. Adams is as steady as they come at the center position.
Atlanta Hawks Fantasy Spin
Jeremy Lin (biceps) is probable to play on Tuesday against the Thunder. The biceps issue hasn't actually forced Lin to spend any time on the sidelines, and it looks like he'll keep powering through on Tuesday. He'll be working with minutes in the mid-20s with the second unit, but he's too inconsistent to trust in most settings.
