Phoenix Suns DFS Notes

Deandre Ayton dominated the Lakers "bigs" during Sunday's win, going 10-of-13 from the field and 6-of-7 from the stripe for 26 points, eight rebounds, two assists and one block over 32 minutes. This was a solid bounce-back performance from Ayton, who was held to just eight points on 3-of-7 shooting across 18 foul-plagued minutes on Friday, and opposing bigs putting up quality stat lines against the Kyle Kuzma-Markieff Morris frontcourt in Los Angeles should be something to make a note of for DFS purposes. Devin Booker tied Ayton for the game-high in points tonight with 26 of his own on 11-of-22 shooting (3-of-6 FT) to go with nine rebounds, four assists, one 3-pointer, one steal and one turnover in 33 minutes.

Miami Heat DFS Notes

Goran Dragic (back) and Avery Bradley (calf) are questionable for Tuesday's game vs. the Suns. Dragic missed Sunday's game with the back issue, but we'll have a better idea on his status following tomorrow's shootaround. If he is able to get back out there, Gabe Vincent will lose most of his minutes. Stay tuned.

Suns vs. Heat Game Prediction
