Miami Heat DFS Notes

During Thursday’s win, Bam Adebayo finished with 15 points, 13 rebounds, five assists, three blocks, and three turnovers while shooting 5-of-12 from the floor and 5-of-10 from the free throw line in 44 minutes. After not recording a block in three straight games, Bam now has five over his past two. He’s provided fifth round value this season despite missing a lot of time. Another reason he’s not higher is that he doesn’t shoot a high percentage from the line, which was prevalent in this game. 5-of-10 isn’t getting the job done for anybody, but the rebounds and blocks are hard to argue against. Bam would likely be a DPOY candidate if he stayed healthy.

New York Knicks DFS Notes

RJ Barrett (left ankle sprain) is questionable for Friday's game against the Heat. Knicks coach Tom Thibodeau said on February 16 that Barrett was expected to return after the All-Star break, so he could be back in the fold Friday night. If Barrett is cleared, this would mean a return to the bench for rookie Quentin Grimes. While he would not fall completely out of the rotation, serving as a reserve would limit Grimes' fantasy upside by a considerable amount.
