Brooklyn Nets DFS Spin

Kevin Durant (left thigh contusion) won't play on Tuesday against the Pelicans. Durant left Sunday's game early with the injury, and it's no surprise that the Nets are once again playing things safe with him. Jeff Green and Alize Johnson should benefit most statistically with KD sidelined, and Blake Griffin could see more minutes, too. Nicolas Claxton also won't play due to medical protocol.

New Orleans Pelicans DFS Spin

Lonzo Ball recorded a line of five points (2-of-9 FGs), seven rebounds, three assists, two steals and one 3-pointer in 27 minutes during Sunday's loss to the Knicks. Ball had a tough afternoon at the office. On New Orleans' final defensive possession of regulation he sagged off of Reggie Bullock, whose corner three pushed the game into overtime. Ball's day came to a close 2.3 seconds later as, due to his minutes restriction, he did not play at all in the extra session. How much longer Ball will have his minutes monitored hasn't been determined yet, but this has to be a frustrating situation for those who still have him rostered.
