Al Horford (personal) will again be unavailable for Friday's game vs. the Clippers. Horford is away from the team due to the birth of his daughter, and head coach Mark Daigneault said he was unsure if Horford would return for any point of their five-game road trip. That means he'll likely miss another four games, and it'll be Isaiah Roby and Mike Muscala picking up the slack in his absence, with Roby being the preferable fantasy target.
Los Angeles Clippers DFS Spin
Kawhi Leonard played 35 minutes in Wednesday’s win over the Kings, accounting for 32 points (13-of-22 FGs, 3-of-3 FTs), three rebounds, five assists, six steals and three 3-pointers. Someone may have informed Leonard that he had gone five straight games without a steals, the longest such stretch of his career, ahead of Wednesday’s game. The “Klaw” tallied six pilfers on the night, while also hitting the 30-point mark for the third time this season. Leonard is providing first-round value in both 8- and 9-cat formats, and that isn’t going to change anytime soon.
