Houston Rockets DFS Spin
KJ Martin played 36 minutes in Friday's 116-101 loss to the Warriors, accounting for 22 points (7-of-12 FGs, 8-of-9 FTs), eight rebounds, two assists, one steal, and two blocked shots. With Jabari Smith (13/9/1 with one 3-pointer) and Alperen Sengun (5/9/8 with one 3-pointer) combining to shoot 6-of-26 from the field, Martin was needed to step forward offensively. And he answered the call, with the 22 points being the most he's scored in a game since a January 15 loss to the Clippers. Rostered in 46% of Yahoo leagues, Martin has been a top-100 player in 9-cat formats over the last month. Fantasy managers in leagues where KJ is still available shouldn't hesitate to add him, as he'll start until Kevin Porter Jr. (foot) is cleared to return.
Portland Trail Blazers DFS Spin
