Boston Celtics DFS Spin

Derrick White (right ankle sprain) is listed as probable for Monday's matchup with New York. White hasn't missed a game this season, and it appears his streak will continue despite the ankle sprain. With Jaylen Brown sidelined for personal reasons, White should return to the starting unit, where he has been an excellent contributor this season.

New York Knicks DFS Spin

Jalen Brunson accounted for 20 points (5-of-13 FGs, 7-of-9 FTs), two rebounds, five assists, and three 3-pointers in Saturday's 128-106 win over the Pelicans, playing 32 minutes. After shooting 6-of-20 from the field in Friday's win over the Wizards, Brunson was better Saturday night. He's now scored 20 points or more in 12 of his last 13 games, providing 3rd-round, per-game value in 9-cat formats over the last month. That run, even with the off night in the nation's capital, has pushed Brunson inside the top 50 in season-long value. He's exceeded expectations, whether we're talking about his Yahoo ADP (64) or what many expected Brunson's overall impact to be when he signed with the Knicks in July.
