Houston Rockets DFS Spin
Kevin Porter Jr. (left foot contusion) has been ruled out for Friday's game against the Warriors. Porter did not practice on Wednesday and is still without a timeline for his return. His continued absence will keep KJ Martin in the starting lineup, and he's been a top-100 player in 9-cat formats over the last month. He's still rostered in 46% of Yahoo leagues, which is too low, given the absences of Porter and Jalen Green.
Golden State Warriors DFS Spin
Andrew Wiggins (personal reasons) does not have a timeline for his return to the team. Having missed the Warriors' final game before the All-Star break, Wiggins has also been ruled out for Thursday's game against the Lakers. And with Kerr saying there's no timeline for a return, Friday's game against the Rockets also appears to be in doubt. Donte DiVincenzo is the obvious add in standard leagues, and he should be rostered until Wiggins returns at a minimum.

Rockets vs. Warriors NBA Prediction:
The Rockets are 2-5-1 against the spread in their last eight games versus the Warriors and are 1-5 against the number in their last six road games versus a team with a home winning percentage of greater than .600. Despite Golden State’s 4-5-1 ATS mark over its last 10 games, I trust the Warriors more than the Rockets, even while laying such a big number.
