Boston Celtics DFS Spin

Kemba Walker won't play on Monday against the Bulls as he rests the knee he had offseason surgery on. Walker's looked great since returning from injury, but Boston needs to be careful with his minutes. Taking Monday off was always the expectation, but fantasy managers should be thrilled with how he's played in limited game-time so far.

Chicago Bulls DFS Spin

Wendell Carter Jr. is doubtful to play on Monday against the Celtics due to a thigh contusion. Carter Jr. sat out with the injury on Saturday as the Bulls lost to the Lakers. Daniel Gafford started at the center spot, but only logged four points, one rebound, and one turnover in 18 minutes. Thaddeus Young scored just six points with four rebounds, two assists, and three steals in 23 minutes. Neither is a must-play if WCJ sits.
