Dallas Mavericks DFS Spin
Luka Doncic had 26 points, eight rebounds, seven assists, three triples and one steal in 35 minutes during Friday's 99-86 victory in New York. The Mavs played this game without coach Rick Carlisle, who had a false-positive COVID-19 test earlier on Friday. Assistant Jamahl Mosley took over on the sidelines tonight, but Carlisle has been vaccinated since January and he's been cleared to travel with the team. Carlisle, Doncic and company will go for their fourth straight win in the second half of this back-to-back set vs. Washington on Saturday.
Washington Wizards DFS Spin
Bradley Beal (bruised right hip) is being listed as questionable for Saturday's game vs. Dallas. Beal has missed the past three and he'll be headed for another game-time call if his status isn't determined after shootaround. If he's out, Jerome Robinson will get another start and Russell Westbrook's usage will remain ridiculous. Stay tuned.
