Denver Nuggets DFS Spin
Nikola Jokic played 35 minutes in Wednesday's 117-96 loss to the Bulls, accounting for 18 points (7-of-16 FGs, 1-of-4 FTs), 12 rebounds, eight assists, and three 3-pointers. "Everybody takes a beating sometimes." That quote from the late Henry Hill sums up what happened to Jokic and the Nuggets on Wednesday, as they were outscored by a 66-44 margin after halftime. Jokic had an uncharacteristically bad night from the foul line, as the 82.2% shooter went 1-of-4. Add in five turnovers, and the two-time MVP had one of his poorer games of the season. But this isn't something to be worried about, as Jokic is ranked second in 9-cat, per-game value. Aaron Gordon (17/9/2/0/1 with one 3-pointer) was the only other Nugget to score at least 15 points in the defeat.
San Antonio Spurs DFS Spin
Keldon Johnson played 27 minutes in Sunday's loss to the Rockets, shooting 3-of-10 from the field and finishing with eight points (1-of-2 FTs), four rebounds, five assists, one block, and one 3-pointer. Johnson was back in the Spurs' lineup after missing two games with a foot injury, and the return was not a fun one. In addition to making 30% of his field goal attempts, Johnson had as many turnovers as assists (five). With San Antonio playing two games in Week 20, injury management is unlikely to be an issue for fantasy managers who have Johnson rostered. Keita Bates-Diop led the Spurs offensively with 17 points (6-of-10 FGs, 4-of-6 FTs) to go along with one rebound, one blocked shot, and one 3-pointer in 23 minutes.
