Jayson Tatum (non-Covid illness) is questionable to play on Sunday against the Nuggets. Tatum is coming off one of the biggest games of his career and it's a bummer he caught an illness right after. Jaylen Brown (left knee soreness) is also questionable to play. If they both sit, Grant Williams and Semi Ojeleye could see big minutes.

Denver Nuggets DFS Spin

Michael Porter Jr. shot 8-of-15 from the field and 4-of-5 from the line on Friday, scoring 22 points with 10 rebounds, two assists and one steal in 40 minutes. MPJ's lone miss at the stripe gave San Antonio a chance on the final possession, but Denver held on for the 121-119 home win. Head coach Mike Malone recently praised MPJ for "major strides defensively" this season, though it's his offense that's stealing the show. "You look at the numbers that he's been putting up, and how efficiently he's doing it, it's truly remarkable," Malone said. He was referring to the fact that MPJ has made at least half of his shots in 17 consecutive games, tied with Rudy Gobert for the longest active streak in the league. More dimes and defensive stats would be great, but Porter Jr. is still dropping early-round value since the All-Star break despite playing on a team with no shortage of scorers.

Celtics vs. Nuggets Betting Prediction

The Nuggets are 6-2 against the spread in their last eight games overall, are 6-1 against the number in their last seven games playing on one day of rest and are 5-2 at the betting window in their last seven games coming off a win. The Celtics, meanwhile, are 4-9 against the spread in their last 13 road games and have failed to cover in seven of their last 10 games as a road underdog.
