Brooklyn Nets DFS Spin
Kevin Durant (left hamstring) is ready to play vs. the Bucks on Sunday. Durant was essentially rested for Friday's game, due to the fact that it was the second half of a back-to-back. He's coming off a huge game with 42 points and 10 assists, so neither his hamstring nor his recent thigh bruise appear to be an ongoing concern.
Milwaukee Bucks DFS Spin
Giannis Antetokounmpo (right ankle) is probable for Sunday's game against the Nets. Giannis hurt his already-sprained ankle on Thursday, and it's promising that he may be able to give this one a shot in a battle of two of the best teams in the East. If he decides to take this one off, however, look for Bobby Portis as an option for an almost sure double-double.
