Milwaukee Bucks DFS Spin
Giannis Antetokounmpo finished Saturday's win in D.C. with 33 points, 11 rebounds and 11 assists in 36 minutes, making 12-of-19 FGs and 7-of-8 FTs with two 3-pointers, one steal and one block. It was Giannis' second straight triple-double and his sixth of the season overall -- he's fallen two assists shy on eight other occasions. He's now the second Bucks player in franchise history with consecutive triple-doubles, joining none other than Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. That's just the sort of company Giannis keeps. He's quietly putting the league on notice as a 3-point shooter lately, making a combined 4-of-6 triples over the past three games (he also went 3-of-3 from deep in the All-Star game). If he starts consistently hitting 40% of his triples, it's game over.
Washington Wizards DFS Spin
Bradley Beal (left knee soreness) isn't on the Wizards' injury report for Monday's game vs. the Bucks. Beal sat out Saturday's game in the second half of a back-to-back set, but this confirms it was a simple precaution for the league's leading scorer. The Wizards have dropped three straight games but they're still only 2.5 games out of the No. 10 seed and a postseason play-in. We're taking him off the injury report and will let you know if his status changes prior to tip-off.
