Milwaukee Bucks DFS Spin
Bucks superstar forward Giannis Antetokounmpo missed Milwaukee’s last game with right hand soreness and he’s officially listed as questionable for Saturday’s tilt with Golden State. Antetokounmpo is averaging 31.2 points, 11.9 rebounds, and 5.5 assists per game for the Bucks this season.
Milwaukee point guard Jrue Holiday has been great in most DFS formats this season. The UCLA alum is averaging 19.7 points, 7.3 assists, 5 rebounds, 1.2 steals, and 2.4 made three-pointers per game for the Bucks this year. He could be in for a big day against a Warriors defense that ranks 25th in the NBA in opponent points per game.
Golden State Warriors DFS Spin
Golden State forwards Andrew Wiggins and Jonathan Kuminga won’t play Saturday night against Milwaukee. Wiggins is dealing with a personal matter and Kuminga is nursing an ankle injury. The two forwards combined to average 26.3 points per game for the Warriors this season.
Warriors guard Klay Thompson is probable for Saturday’s game. He had been nursing a right knee injury. He wouldn’t be a bad addition to your DFS lineups if you need shooting. Thompson is second in the NBA to his teammate Steph Curry in made three-pointers per game with 4.3 and the Washington State alum is converting a sizzling 40.7% of his treys on 10.6 attempts per game.
