According to Lakers coach Darvin Ham, LeBron James (sore left ankle) is dealing with "significant soreness" in his left foot. James has already been ruled out for Monday's game against the Nets, and he was on the injury report due to a sore left ankle that has been problematic for a while. The foot issue is something different and casts some doubt on James' availability for Tuesday's game against the Knicks. That isn't good news for fantasy managers, who may have been hoping for a three-game week from James.
New York Knicks DFS Spin
Julius Randle totaled 19 points, 10 rebounds, eight assists, a steal and a triple in Saturday’s loss to the Nets. Randle shot 7-of-16 from the floor but connected on only 1-of-6 attempts from beyond the arc. In nine games prior to this one, he averaged 26.9 points, 14.1 rebounds, 4.6 assists and 3.0 triples, so despite posting another double-double, his final stat line felt a bit light. The assists mark his second-highest total of the season, and fantasy managers can’t complain too much about a near triple-double. The big man ranks inside the top-60 in per-game fantasy value this season, and he’s been a top-40 option over the last 14 days.
