Chicago Bulls DFS Spin

Andre Drummond finished Tuesday's 116-110 loss to the Pacers with seven points (3-of-4 FGs, 1-of-5 FTs) and five rebounds in six minutes.  Drummond did not check in to Tuesday's game until the third quarter, as that was when Myles Turner gave the Bulls the most trouble. While he was effective in his six-minute stint, Drummond is essentially out of the rotation. He's played eight, three, and six minutes in his last three appearances, and the last six games include three DNP-CDs. Drummond's still rostered in 12% of Yahoo leagues, which is too high.

Charlotte Hornets DFS Spin

LaMelo Ball (sprained left ankle, sore right wrist) is questionable for Thursday's game against the Bulls. Ball was initially listed as questionable for Tuesday's loss to the Suns before being ruled out, so there's certainly no guarantee he'll be able to play on Thursday. If he and Gordon Hayward (hamstring, questionable) are cleared to play, Jalen McDaniels would be back on the bench after providing 11th-round value in 9-cat formats over the last two weeks.
