Wizards vs. Spurs Prediction
The Spurs stopped a modest two-game skid with a 126-114 win over the Pelicans in New Orleans on Saturday. Will they have enough energy to also dispatch the wizards on Sunday night when they host Washington at 7:00 p.m. ET as a 6.5-point favorite?

Washington Wizards Fantasy Spin
Bradley Beal scored a team-high 27 points against the Magic during a 95-91 win on Friday, adding six rebounds, seven assists, two steals and five 3-pointers in 37 minutes. Coming into this game, Beal was struggling in dimes with 3.7 in his previous three and treys with 1.3 in those three, so this strong game put those pointless concerns to bed. He's logging huge minutes, he's blocking shots more and he's even at 1.8 steals this month. Beal has everything you want from a top-15 player in nine-cat leagues, including a good late schedule.
San Antonio Spurs Fantasy Spin
LaMarcus Aldridge (sore left wrist) scored 28 points (12-of-20 FGs, 4-of-4 FTs) with 12 rebounds and two assists in 29 minutes on Saturday against the Pelicans. Aldridge played through some wrist pain, but fought through it and led the Spurs to a win without DeMar DeRozan (knee). They were able to limit his minutes on the front end of a back-to-back set, which bodes well for his status heading into Sunday's game. As long as LMA is able to tolerate any pain he's having, he'll be out there and should remain in your fantasy lineups.
