Ben Simmons (illness) will not suit up for Saturday's game vs. the Bucks. It'll be his fourth straight game on the sidelines, and it'll be interesting who gets the start in his place tomorrow night. Doc Rivers has deployed a different guy each game, with Seth Curry, Shake Milton and George Hill all drawing starts at the point guard position. Maybe Tyrese Maxey will get the call tomorrow night, or perhaps Rivers will return to Milton, who played well on Thursday.
Milwaukee Bucks DFS Spin
Giannis Antetokounmpo hit 12-of-22 shots and 9-of-10 free throws (!) for 33 points, eight rebounds, two assists, a steal and a block before leaving Monday's game in the overtime period with a left toe cramp. Giannis was unable to continue and the Bucks lost by a point in the extra session, resulting in a season sweep for the Suns. Deandre Ayton played some great defense against Giannis tonight and perhaps the best news for Giannis is that he hit all those free throws. The fact it was just a cramp that kept him out of most of the overtime session is great news and we're guessing he's good to go against the Sixers on Thursday, especially given that he'll have three days to rest. But we're still going to put him on the injury report, just in case. If Giannis does miss time with the injury, Bobby Portis would quickly become relevant again.
