Utah Jazz DFS Spin

Donovan Mitchell is questionable to play on Sunday against the Nuggets due to concussion protocol. Mitchell's missed the last two games after taking a couple of hard hits on Tuesday. If he can't play, Mike Conley, Joe Ingles, and Jordan Clarkson are all favorable fantasy plays.

Denver Nuggets DFS Spin

Jamal Murray (hip, shoulder) is probable to play on Sunday against the Jazz. It's been a minor-injury-filled season for Murray, who continues to play through it all. He says he has a bruise on his elbow and his glute, and he has a shoulder sprain. We keep suggesting that the Nuggets sit him, but clearly, that isn't happening anytime soon. He still ranks as the No. 77 player in 9-cat leagues.
