Milwaukee Bucks DFS Spin
Giannis Antetokounmpo (right quad contusion) is listed as probable for Tuesday’s matchup with the Pacers. Giannis missed their last game due to the quad contusion that he suffered on Friday. He should return to his normal starting role, which will push Bobby Portis back to a role off the bench.
Brooklyn Nets DFS Spin
Nicolas Claxton dominated defensively with eight points (2-for-4 FGs), 11 rebounds, one assist, four steals and three blocks in a loss to Atlanta on Sunday. Claxton has been incredible on the defensive end all season, and this was his fourth game with at least seven combined steals and blocks. He certainly has a case for an All-Defensive team, but his poor free throw shooting has limited his value in 9-cat leagues. He has shot 68.6% from the line this month, which is significantly better than his season percentage of 51.1%. If he can continue to shoot close to 70% from the line, he'll have no problem providing top-20 value in 9-cat leagues.
