Washington Wizards DFS Notes

Russell Westbrook (right ankle sprain) is being listed as questionable for Game 5 on Wednesday vs. the 76ers. Westbrook was questionable for the last game, but he pushed through the pain and logged 42 minutes, so we're not too worried about him potentially missing tomorrow's game. He'll likely be a game-time decision, though.

Philadelphia 76ers DFS Notes

Joel Embiid (right knee soreness) is doubtful for Wednesday's Game 5 matchup with the Wizards. Embiid underwent an MRI today, but the results haven't yet been released, but we should get another update by tomorrow. It's unclear at the moment if this is a day-to-day thing or something more serious, but it looks like Dwight Howard could be headed for a spot-start tomorrow night. Stay tuned.
