Los Angeles Lakers DFS Notes

Kyle Kuzma came off the bench and hit 8-of-12 shots and a 3-pointer for 19 points, 10 rebounds, seven assists, a steal and a block, and hit the game-winning driving layup with 6.9 seconds left in Wednesday's 124-122 win over the Rockets. Kuzma is always going to be a big part of the Lakers' offense on nights when LeBron James (ankle) and Anthony Davis (groin) are sitting and he made the most of this opportunity tonight. The Lakers set a franchise record with points in the paint tonight (86) and Kuzma and Andre Drummond were a big part of that.

Indiana Pacers DFS Notes

Domantas Sabonis (quad) is being listed as questionable for Saturday's game vs. the Lakers. Sabonis tweaked his quad on Thursday and he may skip the first leg of this back-to-back against the beat up Lakers. If he does hit the sidelines, Oshae Brissett will make for an excellent target. Stay tuned.
