Indiana Pacers DFS Spin
Buddy Hield (left foot soreness) is questionable to play against Detroit on Monday. Hield could join Tyrese Haliburton, Myles Turner and Bennedict Mathurin as out for this game. If that's the case, Jordan Nwora should slide into the starting unit, with Andrew Nembhard and Chris Duarte playing big roles for the Pacers.
Detroit Pistons DFS Spin
Pistons coach Dwane Casey said on Sunday that Marvin Bagley (right ankle soreness) will likely miss the "next few" games. Bagley had to exit Saturday's loss to the Pacers during the third quarter. Given Casey's statement on Sunday, fantasy managers can likely rule Bagley out for Detroit's game against Indiana (Monday) and Washington (Tuesday). That would leave two games for the remainder of Week 21, beginning Thursday against the Nuggets. Look for Jalen Duren and Eugene Omoruyi to play increased minutes with Bagley sidelined.
