Golden State Warriors DFS Notes

Stephen Curry locked up the NBA scoring title during Sunday's win vs. Memphis, making 16 of his career-high 36 shots to score 46 points with nine dimes, seven rebounds, a steal and a block. Curry was dazzling in a crucial victory that gave Golden State the No. 8 seed and an easier path to the playoffs. He hit 9-of-22 three-pointers, and fended off Bradley Beal to lead the league in scoring at 31.8 points per game. He may not earn another MVP award but still had a remarkable season by any measure, and his efforts have the Warriors awaiting either the Lakers or the Blazers in the first game of the play-in tournament. Clear your TV-viewing schedule for Wednesday night.

Los Angeles Lakers DFS Notes

LeBron James (right ankle) has been listed as as probable to play Wednesday night vs. Golden State. Barring something catastrophic, LeBron will be on the court Wednesday night. James tweaked that right ankle sprain in the 4th quarter of Sunday's win over the Pelicans, but he has since insisted that he will be good to go for Wednesday's play-in game against Golden State. James has never missed a postseason game in his career and that should not change Wednesday.
