New York Knicks DFS Spin

Knicks coach Tom Thibodeau said before Sunday's win over the Lakers that Jalen Brunson (left foot soreness) is not expected to be available for Tuesday's game against Portland. Brunson did not play in either of the Knicks' two games in Los Angeles over the weekend after aggravating his foot injury during Thursday's loss to the Kings. Sitting out Tuesday's game, which is the last of the Knicks' four-game road trip, would give Brunson a week on the sideline before Friday's home game against the Nuggets. Immanuel Quickley, who finished Sunday's win over the Lakers with 15 points, two rebounds, three assists, one steal, and one 3-pointer in 31 minutes, will get at least one more start based on Woj's report.

Portland Trail Blazers DFS Spin

Damian Lillard (right calf tightness) is questionable for Tuesday's game against the Knicks. Lillard did not play in Sunday's blowout loss to the Pelicans, with Cam Reddish being moved into the starting lineup. Expect the same if Dame remains sidelined. Reddish would be worth rostering in this scenario, but fantasy managers should keep their expectations in check.

Knicks vs. Trail Blazers NBA Prediction:

Given how both of these teams have performed of late – both on the hardwood and at the betting window – the Knicks are probably a safe ATS play tonight. That said, they just haven’t played well in Portland so I’m going to pass on New York and instead take the under, which is 10-4 in the last 14 meetings between these two teams and is 5-1 in the last six meetings in Portland. The under is also 4-0 in the Knicks’ last four games overall, is 5-2 in their last seven road games and 18-7-1 in the Trail Blazers’ last 26 home games coming off a road trip of seven or more days.
