Rudy Gobert was quiet on offense vs. the Sixers on Monday, finishing with 11 points, nine rebounds, two assists, two blocks and a steal. He only took three shots in a game in which Joel Embiid (back) didn't play, going 3-of-3 and 5-of-8 from the line. But Gobert still made his presence felt by chipping with other stats and extending his streak with at least two blocks to eight games. The Stifle Tower ranks second in swats per game (2.8) behind only Myles Turner (3.4) this season.
Los Angeles Clippers DFS Spin
Paul George (bone edema, right foot) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game vs. the Jazz. George is on the verge of sitting two weeks due to the foot injury, and there is no concrete timeline for a return. Terance Mann made the start Monday night and played reasonably well, so that could be the case once again on Wednesday. Luke Kennard should also see an increase in opportunities, and whichever one that receives the starting nod will be the better streaming option.
