Los Angeles Clippers DFS Spin

Kawhi Leonard (protocols) didn't miss a beat in his return to action vs. Orlando on Friday with 24 points (8-of-15 FGs, 6-of-6 FTs), four rebounds, three assists and two triples in 29 minutes. This game wasn't close so the Clippers were able to ease Kawhi and Paul George back into things after two games away from the team. The No. 3 player in standard leagues, Kawhi's fantasy managers are loving life these days with the superstar saying that he no longer needs to rest in all back-to-back sets. We'll see if he holds to that with a back-to-back coming up on Feb. 2nd.

New York Knicks DFS Spin

Reggie Bullock (sore neck) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Clippers. Bullock has missed each of the Knicks' last three games, with Alec Burks replacing him in the starting lineup. Both Burks and Austin Rivers have appeal as fill-in options, with the former sitting just outside of the top-100 in 8- and 9-cat formats. Burks is rostered in 47% of Yahoo leagues, with Rivers' percentage way down at 5%.
