Milwaukee Bucks DFS Spin

Giannis Antetokounmpo (left knee) and P.J. Tucker (calf) are being listed as questionable for Wednesday's game vs. the Timberwolves. Both these guys were able to get in a full practice on Tuesday, but with Wednesday's game coming as the first of a back-to-back, they may need to spend one more game on the sidelines. We'll have a better idea on where these two are at following tomorrow's shootaround, but if they are able to get back out there, Pat Connaughton would likely return to the second unit and Bobby Portis' minutes would dip. Stay tuned.

Minnesota Timberwolves DFS Spin

D'Angelo Russell played 20 minutes in Tuesday's loss to the Nets, recording a line of 15 points (5-of-12 FGs, 2-of-2 FTs), one rebound, one assist, one steal and three 3-pointers. Russell, who did not play at all during the fourth quarter as the Nets had the game well in hand, once again came off the bench for the Timberwolves as he works his way back from knee surgery. The biggest issue for Russell on Tuesday was the turnover count, finishing with four, and he also cooled off considerably after making his first four shots. Minnesota hosts the Bucks Wednesday night, so we'll see if Russell gets to play in both ends of a back-to-back for the first time since his return.
