Dallas Mavericks DFS Notes

Luka Doncic (calf) is considered questionable for Thursday's matchup vs. the Jazz. Doncic missed the first two games of this series, but fortunately, the Mavericks were able to steal Game 2 behind a big performance from Jalen Brunson. With the series tied, Doncic doesn't need to rush back for Game 3, but for now, he is making progress to return Thursday night. Check back with us for an update on his status in the next 24 hours.

Utah Jazz DFS Notes

Donovan Mitchell totaled 34 points on 13-of-30 shooting and added five assists, two rebounds and two triples in Monday’s 110-104 loss to Dallas. Spida led Utah in scoring for the second straight game after going for 32/6/6 in Game 1. Unfortunately, it’s taken him heavy shot volume to put up those 30-burgers. Through the first two games of this series, he’s posted 66 points on 23-of-59 shooting. Both contests have been decided by just six points, and it’s clear that this is going to be a dog fight. Mitchell will need to be even better if the Jazz hope to advance to the Western Conference Semis, especially with Luka Doncic’s return on the horizon.
