Brooklyn Nets DFS Notes

James Harden (neck soreness) is questionable for Tuesday's game vs. the Blazers. Brooklyn is already without Kyrie Irving (personal) and Landry Shamet (right ankle), in addition to the usual guys, so if Harden can't play the backcourt will be running on little more than Bruce Brown's sweat. We should know more after Tuesday's shootaround, so check for updates in the afternoon.

Portland Trail Blazers DFS Notes

C.J. McCollum hit 6-of-15 shots, 0-of-5 3-pointers, and 1-of-1 free throws for 13 points, one assist, two rebounds, one steal, and no turnovers in a loss to the Mavericks Sunday. McCollum and Lillard combined to miss all 12 of the 3-point shots they took on Sunday. It’s the first time McCollum hasn’t made a 3-point shot in a game all season. McCollum’s had three shaky games now out of four since returning from a fractured bone in his foot but his breakout performance on Friday where he scored 32 points with seven made 3-pointers gives fantasy managers hope that he can return to top-20 value.

On the other side, the Trail Blazers are just 1-4 against the spread in their last five games as a favorite and failed to cover in eight of their last 10 home games when facing an opponent with a winning road record.
