Los Angeles Lakers DFS Notes

LeBron James (right knee soreness/effusion) is yet again being listed as questionable for Thursday’s game against the Clippers. There’s almost no way LeBron watches his embarrassment of a team from the sidelines, and the questionable tag is just standard procedure for him. The King is going to give it all he has in the hopes of securing a play-in spot for a Lakers team that was the second favorite to win the championship before the season began. You can’t make this stuff up.

Los Angeles Clippers DFS Notes

Reggie Jackson hit 6-of-16 shots and three 3-pointers for 17 points, five rebounds, six assists and a steal in 26 minutes of Tuesday's relatively easy win over the Rockets. Jackson averaged 17.7 points, 4.5 rebounds, 7.3 assists, 0.6 steals, 0.5 blocks and 1.7 3-pointers in February and got his March off to a nice start tonight. He's somehow scored in double figures in 14 straight games and has a nice four-game schedule next week.
