Brooklyn Nets DFS Spin
Ben Simmons (left knee soreness) and T.J. Warren (left shin contusion) will miss Wednesday's matchup with the Celtics. Both players will miss another game, freeing up additional minutes for the likes of Seth Curry, Joe Harris, Patty Mills and Cam Thomas. Yuta Watanabe is probable, and he'll likely see an increase in playing time as well. Day'Ron Sharpe is an interesting streamer in deeper leagues after his strong performance Monday against the Lakers.
Boston Celtics DFS Spin
Marcus Smart (right ankle sprain) tells reporters Tuesday that he is seeing "small improvements" but doesn't know whether he'll return before the All-Star break. The good news is Smart's ankle is progressing; however, he did tell reporters Tuesday that there is still no timetable for return. The reigning Defensive Player of The Year added that he's "taking it day by day" and "just seeing how the ankle responds". Smart, who leads the Celtics in assists at 7.2 apg, has missed the team's last four games.
