Golden State Warriors DFS Notes
Klay Thompson will be rested on Saturday vs. the Spurs. Presumably, Klay will sit on the front end of the back-to-back and appear vs. the Pelicans on Sunday. It's also possible Klay sits both as the Warriors simply want to get to the playoffs with fresh legs. The last time Klay sat, we saw guys like Jonathan Kuminga, Gary Payton II and Damion Lee get some extra run.
San Antonio Spurs DFS Notes
Dejounte Murray (non-COVID illness), Keldon Johnson (right knee soreness), Devin Vassell (left heel soreness) and Jakob Poeltl (lower back tightness) will all be sidelined for Saturday’s game against the Warriors. With the exception of Murray, who will miss his fifth straight with the illness, the main Spurs are just taking the night off as they’ve already been confirmed to play the Pelicans in their first play-in game. We’ll see who Popovich decides to start tomorrow, but it’s looking like Tre Jones, Lonnie Walker, Josh Richardson and Jock Landale could all be on the fantasy radar on the penultimate day of the regular season.
