Los Angeles Lakers DFS Notes

Anthony Davis (left knee) will be reevaluated within the next few days. This doesn't say much, other than to prepare for an update soon. He was expected to be reevaluated four weeks after the procedure, so this is right in line with that original timeline.

Denver Nuggets DFS Notes

Nikola Jokic ended with 20 points, eight rebounds, seven assists and two steals in the Nuggets’ 140-108 shellacking of the Blazers on Thursday. Jokic was a little light in the box score by his lofty standards, though he wasn’t needed beyond the third quarter with Denver leading by more than 20 points entering the final frame. Expect some more gaudy stat lines in future games that are more competitive than Thursday's 32-point snoozefest.

Lakers vs. Nuggets NBA Betting Prediction

The Lakers are just 2-7-1 against the spread in their last 10 games in Denver, are 4-13 against the number in their last 17 games versus a team with a winning record and are 2-9 at the betting window in their last 11 games playing on two days of rest. On the other side, the Nuggets are 6-2 against the spread in their last eight home games versus a team with a losing road record.
