Los Angeles Lakers DFS Spin
Anthony Davis (right quad) is questionable for Monday's game vs. the Hawks. Davis has picked up a ton of minor injuries throughout his career, as fantasy managers know too well. The Lakers are leaning into it by listing him with an injury prior to nearly every single game this season. His list of official ailments this season has involved his right adductor, lower back, right ankle, right calf and now his right quad. Basically his entire lower-right quadron. Confirm his status before deploying him in DFS leagues. LeBron James (left ankle) is also on the official injury report, but that's apparently just for show since he hasn't left it all season.
Atlanta Hawks DFS Spin
Trae Young (knee) is considered probable to play on Monday vs the Lakers. The Hawks last game was on Friday so with two days rest before tomorrow's contest vs LA, it's safe to assume that he will be good to go. Besides, the way Young has been playing over the past handful of games, it's hard to imagine he wouldn't want to get on the court against LeBron James and Anthony Davis in what should be a fun one.
