Atlanta Hawks DFS Spin
Clint Capela is questionable to play on Friday against the Jazz with a right hand injury. The Hawks' game on Wednesday was postponed due to the Suns contact tracing protocol, but Capela was still listed as questionable to play due to a right hand injury. It's unclear if he'll play on Friday. If he can't give it a go, Onyeka Okongwu could see big minutes in his NBA debut.
Utah Jazz DFS Spin
Joe Ingles won't play on Friday against the Hawks due to right Achilles soreness. This is Ingles' second straight missed game due to the injury. On Tuesday, Bojan Bogdanovic scored 20 points (four made 3-pointers) with three assists, two rebounds and two turnovers in 28 minutes. Georges Niang scored 14 points on 6-of-11 shooting (two made 3-pointers), with five rebounds in 15 minutes. Look for them to both step up again in Ingles' absence.
