Utah Jazz DFS Notes
Donovan Mitchell (concussion) will not be available for Sunday's game against the Warriors. Mitchell will miss a third straight game due to concussion symptoms, and it's possible that he will not play in Monday's game against the Suns, either. According to Tony Jones of The Athletic, Mitchell did not travel with the team to San Francisco. Fantasy managers should plan for Joe Ingles getting two more starts, with the earliest possible return for Mitchell being on Wednesday (home vs. Phoenix). Ingles hasn't been a great fantasy option this season, but being in the starting lineup gives him the opportunity to change that.
Golden State Warriors DFS Notes
Stephen Curry scored 22 points to go with 12 assists, four rebounds, one steal, one block, and two turnovers as he lifted the Warriors to a 105-103 win at the buzzer on Friday. Curry did not have a good shooting night at all on Friday, but he made the one that counted the most. He finished going 6-of-21 from the floor (4-of-13 3-pointers) and went 6-of-8 from the foul line on the evening. He even added a block and a steal, which was good to see, and his 12 assists were a season-high so it is good to see him finding other ways to contribute when his shot isn't falling.
