Phoenix Suns DFS Notes
Deandre Ayton tallied his 123rd career double-double in Wednesday night's win over the Warriors with 16 points (7-of-17 FGs), 16 rebounds, and five turnovers across 36 minutes. For the tenth time this season, Ayton did not record a defensive stat, six of those have come this month. Despite his defensive statistics trending downward, he is still a top-45 fantasy player and will look to continue his double-double streak Friday night in Memphis.
Memphis Grizzlies DFS Notes
Desmond Bane (left ankle soreness) is doubtful for Friday's game against the Suns. Bane looked perfectly fine during the Grizzlies' win over the Spurs on Wednesday, which locked the team into the 2-seed in the West. With Memphis knowing where it will be seeded, the health of its key players will likely take precedence for the remainder of the regular season. If Bane does not play on Friday, look for Ziaire Williams to take on a greater share of the workload.
