Portland Trail Blazers DFS Spin

Damian Lillard (abdomen) is questionable for Thursday vs. the 76ers. Dame said he could "barely move" at the beginning of last game so this is definitely a concern for the Blazers and for his fantasy managers. With the Blazers already shorthanded, they would need to heavily rely on the red-hot Gary Trent Jr. if Dame couldn't play, and Anfernee Simons would be an obvious pickup as well.

Philadelphia 76ers DFS Spin

Joel Embiid dominated the Hornets in his return on Wednesday, sinking 11-of-18 FGs and 9-of-10 FTs for a game-high 34 points and 11 rebounds. Embiid added two assists, two steals and one block in 34 minutes during a road win in Charlotte. That's seven wins in the past eight games for Philly. "It's not rocket science. We are a better team with Joel Embiid on the floor," Tobias Harris said recently. "But for the nights he does have to rest his body and get himself at 100 percent, we have to figure out our flow and how we are going to play." That could be the case again on Thursday, unfortunately, as there's a strong chance Philly rests Embiid in the second half of a back-to-back set.
