Atlanta Hawks DFS Notes
Trae Young (quad) double-doubled in his return to action on Sunday, tallying 21 points (5-of-14 FG, 8-of-8 FT), 10 assists, five rebounds, three triples and an unfortunate seven turnovers in 34 minutes. Young wasn’t great in his return from a one-game stint on the sidelines, committing four of his seven turnovers within his first eight minutes of play, and he didn’t get his first 3-point shot to fall until after halftime. That said, he didn’t seem at all bothered by the left quad issue, so he should be fine for Tuesday’s game in New York, despite that one being the first of a back-to-back set. Delon Wright shifted back to the second unit with Young back in action and finished with eight points, five rebounds, three assists, two steals and one turnover in 27 minutes.
New York Knicks DFS Notes
Julius Randle had an ugly shooting night but still managed to register a double-double, scoring 13 points with 11 rebounds, three assists, and two turnovers as the Knicks lost to the Jazz 108-93 on Sunday night. Randle had a horrific shooting night, going 6-of-21 from the floor and 1-of-6 from three on the evening. He also didn’t tally any defensive stats and the Knicks couldn’t get a win. He did double-double for the second-straight game, so hopefully, he can keep that up when the Knicks host the Hawks on Tuesday.
