O.G. Anunoby accounted for 26 points (9-of-16 FGs, 4-of-4 FTs), three rebounds, two assists, two steals, one block, and four 3-pointers in Thursday's 119-108 loss to the Wizards. Anunoby was one of two Raptors starters to shoot better than 50% from the field in Thursday's defeat, with Jakob Poeltl being the other. And this was a welcome performance for O.G., as in his first four games back from injury, he shot 40% from the field and averaged 10.5 points per game. Thursday's effort, on the heels of a solid showing in Toronto's win over the Bulls on Tuesday, is a sign that the rust is gone. Anunoby's providing 3rd-round, per-game value in 9-cat formats this season, well above his Yahoo ADP of 62. He'll look for some revenge when the Raptors face the Wizards again Saturday night.

Washington Wizards DFS Spin

Kristaps Porzingis (left knee soreness) accumulated 25 points (8-of-12 FGs, 7-of-7 FTs), five rebounds, two assists, one steal, two blocks, and two 3-pointers in 36 minutes. Porzingis was back in action after a two-game absence, and outside of the four turnovers, this was a good night for the Unicorn. For the season, he's providing top 20 per-game value in 8- and 9-cat formats, by far Washington's best fantasy option. With Porzingis back and Kyle Kuzma scoring 30 points, Bradley Beal took a back seat, scoring 15 points with five rebounds, five assists, and three 3-pointers in 35 minutes. The one concern for Porzingis in the short term is the schedule, as the Wizards will play a back-to-back against the Raptors (Saturday) and Bucks (Sunday). He's played both ends of some back-to-backs this season, so it isn't automatic that he'll sit out one of those games.
