San Antonio Spurs Fantasy Spin
DeMar DeRozan (ankle) was back in action on Sunday, but he shot just 4-of-16 from the field to score eight points in a home loss to the Clippers. Yikes. DeRozan only missed one game but perhaps he needed another day to rest up. His jumpers were falling short and he didn't get the free-throw line for the first time all season tonight. It's uncharacteristic, to say the least, and cautious owners should confirm that he's good to go for Wednesday's game in Philly. With two days to rest before then, he should be fine.
Philadelphia 76ers Fantasy Spin
Ben Simmons (illness) did not practice on Tuesday and is questionable for Wednesday's game against the Spurs. We'll have a better idea on Simmons' status following Wednesday's shootaround, but if he is forced to the sidelines, T.J. McConnell could be looking at a start and there would be more minutes available for Landry Shamet. Owners can expect to get another update by Wednesday afternoon.
