Denver Nuggets DFS Spin
Paul Millsap (left knee sprain) is questionable to play on Friday against the Grizzlies. Millsap hasn't played since February 14th, but it's good news he hasn't immediately been ruled out. If he can't give it a go, Michael Porter Jr., P.J. Dozier, and Zeke Nnaji should fill in his role.
Memphis Grizzlies DFS Spin
Ja Morant had a 21-point, 10-assist double-double in Wednesday's 127-112 win over the Wizards. Morant was effective from the field (7-of-14) but he struggled at the line (7-of-12), although he did become the first Memphis player to attempt at least 10 free throws in three straight games since Pau Gasol did it back in 2006. He added six rebounds and two turnovers in his 33 minutes of floor time, and the Grizzlies have now won three of their past four games. It'll be interesting to see if they can keep it going against the 21-15 Nuggets on Friday.
Nuggets vs. Grizzlies Betting Prediction
