Brooklyn Nets DFS Notes
James Harden (right hand) was able to practice on Monday, but Steve Nash is listing him as questionable for Tuesday's game in Phoenix. Harden has missed the past two games due to the hand strain, but him getting through Monday's practice is an encouraging sign regarding his status for Tuesday's game. That one will be the first of a back-to-back, though, so there's still a chance the Nets will err on the side of caution, with Kyrie Irving set to play in that game. Managers can expect to get another update following tomorrow's shootaround, but if Harden is able to give it a go, DeAndre' Bembry would likely return to the second unit and Cam Thomas' minutes could dip a bit.
Phoenix Suns DFS Notes
Deandre Ayton (right ankle) and Jae Crowder are both out for Tuesday's game against the Nets. This should mean more good stuff for Bismack Biyombo, who has made one of the more unlikely NBA comebacks this season. Ayton hasn't played since Jan. 16 and missed Sunday's game after initially being listed as questionable.
