Danilo Gallinari (ankle) and Cam Reddish (knee) are not listed on the injury report ahead of Sunday's game against the Bucks. What this means regarding minutes restrictions for either player is unknown, but the fact that neither Gallinari nor Reddish is listed is good news. Both came off the bench in Friday's win over the Timberwolves, with Gallinari playing 15 minutes and Reddish 24. They may be in line for slight increases Sunday, especially if De'Andre Hunter (right knee soreness) is unable to play. Hunter is listed as questionable.
Milwaukee Bucks DFS Spin
Giannis Antetokounmpo had 25 points (11-of-17 FGs, 2-of-4 FTs), 12 rebounds, three assists, one block, one triple and a career-high nine turnovers in Thursday's loss to the Lakers. He had a whopping seven turnovers with three fouls in just 12 first half minutes, but turned things around after that to make things interesting. He had some really bright spots including a stunning block on LeBron James (link below), but the Bucks still ended up losing their second game in a row for the first time this season. Unfortunately, Giannis will have to sit on this 2-game losing streak for a minute, as Friday's game vs. the Wizards was postponed due to contract tracing on Washington's side.
