Los Angeles Lakers DFS Spin

LeBron James (left ankle sprain) is questionable for Thursday vs. the Bucks. Sure he is. The Lakers have been putting LeBron on the injury report all season but he's yet to miss a game. There's no chance he sits out vs. Giannis.

Milwaukee Bucks DFS Spin

Giannis Antetokounmpo had a great showing on Monday, recording 34 points, 12 rebounds, seven assists and two steals in the Bucks loss to the Nets. Giannis came to play against the new-look Nets, recording his seventh double-double of the season in a 125-123 loss. He shot the ball really well, making 13-of-26 shots, 6-of-8 free throws and 2-of-6 from distance, which includes an airball. But he's taking the threes a bit more confidently this season and is putting up numbers across the board on a nightly basis. He also went 75% at the charity stripe which is a big improvement from his 1-of-10 effort from Friday.
