Milwaukee Bucks DFS Spin

Khris Middleton put up 27 points, eight rebounds, seven assists, three 3-pointers and one steal in 25 minutes vs. the Wolves on Wednesday. None of the Bucks' starters logged more than Jrue Holiday's 26 minutes in this matinee. They didn't need too, because they led by 24 points early in the third quarter and never looked back. Bryn Forbes scored 14 points with one rebound and nothing else in 17 minutes off the bench, Pat Connaughton had 14 points and four boards, and even Rodions Kurucs chipped in eight points in six minutes of garbage time. The Bucks play the Hawks on Thursday in the second half of a back-to-back set, so hopefully the starters' low minutes will forestall any rest days.

Atlanta Hawks DFS Spin

Trae Young (left calf) is questionable for Thursday vs. the Bucks. Young was supposedly "good to go" for Tuesday but the Hawks held him out for a second straight. Hopefully they were just being cautious for this showdown vs. the Bucks, but if he misses another look for Kevin Huerter and Bogdan Bogdanovic to get a boost and for Brandon Goodwin to be a low-end streamer.
