Memphis Grizzlies DFS Spin
Ja Morant, Desmond Bane, Dillon Brooks, Jaren Jackson Jr., and Xavier Tillman all started Wednesday's game against the Trail Blazers. Bane is back in action after missing the prior two games with a sore right knee. Ziaire Williams moves to the bench and isn't worth rostering in most fantasy leagues when used in that role. Tillman will get another start as Steven Adams (knee) remains sidelined.
Cleveland Cavs DFS Spin
Donovan Mitchell facilitated well against the Heat and contributed 16 points (6-for-17 FGs), three rebounds, nine assists, four steals and three 3-pointers in a loss on Tuesday. This game definitely felt like a playoff game, which explains the limited scoring and shot attempts for both teams. Mitchell had a chance to force overtime at the buzzer, but he ended up missing a contested attempt from deep, which summed up his night. He shot 3-for-13 from deep, which means he shot 3-for-4 from inside the arc. The Heat did a good job of keeping him out of the paint, but he was able to redeem his night with his most assists in nearly a month and by tying his season-high for steals.
