Boston Celtics DFS Spin
Jayson Tatum provided solid value on Monday with 22 points (8-for-22 FGs), eight rebounds, six assists, one steal and two 3-pointers against Houston. Tatum may have supplied a solid line, but he didn't have his best shooting night in what was a surprising loss. He took the blame for Boston's inconsistent energy after the game, as he said, "I didn't necessarily start the best and I feel like that kind of spread throughout the team. And so I have to be better starting the game, just from an energy level." He'll look to do that in Minnesota on Wednesday, as this was the first of five straight road games against Western Conference opponents. After his statements, he should bounce back well against the Wolves.
Minnesota Timberwolves DFS Spin
Rudy Gobert (sprained left ankle) is questionable for Wednesday's game against the Celtics. Gobert was initially questionable for Monday's game against the Hawks, but he was cleared shortly before tipoff while Naz Reid (calf) sat. Gobert should be good to go on Wednesday, with either Reid or Luka Garza serving as his backup.
