Toronto Raptors DFS Spin
Pascal Siakam logged 41 minutes in Wednesday's 108-100 loss to the Clippers, accounting for 20 points (9-of-21 FGs, 1-of-2 FTs), six rebounds, five assists, two steals, and one 3-pointer. Siakam and Scottie Barnes (20/5/4/2 with two 3-pointers in 36 minutes) led the way offensively for the Raptors, but they weren't efficient in getting their numbers. Siakam shot 9-of-21 from the field, and Barnes was even worse at 6-of-21. As a team, Toronto shot 38.5% from the field, which proved to be too difficult to overcome. Providing top-50 value for the season, Siakam will look to bounce back on Friday when the Raptors end their road trip against the Lakers.
Los Angeles Lakers DFS Spin
D'Angelo Russell will return to the Lakers' starting lineup Friday against the Raptors, and Dennis Schroder will come off the bench. Russell will return following a six-game absence, and fantasy managers should be sure to get him back into lineups. In three healthy appearances with the Lakers this season, D'Lo averaged 17.3 points, 3.3 boards, 5.7 dimes and 2.0 triples.
