Portland Trail Blazers DFS Spin

Damian Lillard (right calf tightness) is probable for Sunday's game against the Pelicans. The probable designation means it's likely that Lillard will be on the court Sunday night. Should anything change, that would open the door for Cam Reddish to start, with Anfernee Simons serving as the starting point guard. Reddish would be worthy of streaming consideration if he gets the opportunity to start.

New Orleans Pelicans DFS Spin

C.J. McCollum provided solid value on Saturday with 26 points (8-for-20 FGs), seven rebounds, eight assists, four 3-pointers and five turnovers in a 110-96 loss to Oklahoma City.As has been the case when both Brandon Ingram and Zion Williamson have been out of the lineup, McCollum provided solid counting stats, but the efficiency wasn't there to match. When the team is healthy, McCollum has been an excellent third scoring option that can take over the offense at times. Unfortunately, health has been a major issue for the Pelicans for a long time. McCollum has been outside the top-100 in 9-cat value over the past two months, as he only contributes points, rebounds, assists, three and free throw percentage.
