Kyle Kuzma (sprained left ankle) was a full participant in the pregame shootaround ahead of Monday's game against the Warriors. Kuzma, who has missed Washington's last three games, was able to participate in the shootaround without any restrictions. Per Wizards coach Wes Unseld Jr., his availability for Monday's game will be determined closer to game time. Kuzma's availability impacts Corey Kispert the most, as he would drop back to the bench.
Portland Trail Blazers DFS Spin
Jerami Grant (concussion protocols) is now questionable for Monday's game against the Lakers. Grant was omitted from the initial injury report, which may have been a mistake given the report Saturday that he entered the league's concussion protocols. Should Grant not be cleared to play Monday night, Nassir Little and Shaedon Sharpe are the most likely options to replace him in the starting lineup. Neither has been a great fantasy option this season, as both are ranked outside the top 300 in 9-cat, per-game value.
