Brooklyn Nets DFS Notes

Brooklyn Nets guard Kyrie Irving (ankle) remains out for Thursday's Game 6 against the Bucks, per Malika Andrew's of ESPN. Irving injured his ankle in Sunday's Game 4 loss in Milwaukee when he landed on Giannis Antetokounmpo's foot. He then missed Game 5, but luckily the Nets got Harden back and were able to take a 3-2 lead over the Bucks. On Tuesday morning Nash said that he had "no idea" if Irving would be able to return during this series against Milwaukee, and if one had to guess, it is likely that he is done for the remainder of this series at minimum. On Wednesday, he said that Kyrie will not travel with the team and that instead, he will stay in Brooklyn to get treatment on the ankle. Expect Harden to again be in the starting lineup joined by Joe Harris, Kevin Durant, Bruce Brown, and Blake Griffin on Thursday.

Milwaukee Bucks DFS Notes

Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 34 points on 14-of-22 shooting (2-of-4 3-pointers) to go with 12 rebounds, four assists, one steal, two blocks, and four turnovers in 42 minutes as the Bucks lost 114-108 to Brooklyn on Tuesday night. The Bucks blew a 17-point lead on Tuesday night and squandered an opportunity to push a short-handed Brooklyn team to the brink. Though Giannis scored 34, some questioned why the 1st-Team All-Defensive selection and former defensive player-of-the-year was not guarding Kevin Durant down the stretch as he put together one of the most spectacular playoff performances of all time. Khris Middleton tallied 25 points on 8-of-22 shooting (3-of-10 3-pointers) with four rebounds, five assists, one block and one steal. Jrue Holiday added 19 points on 7-of-16 shooting (3-of-7 3-pointers) with eight assists, three rebounds and one steal, while Brook Lopez chipped in 15 points on 6-of-10 shooting (3-of-5 3-pointers) with six rebounds. The Bucks will try to keep their season alive on Thursday night as the series shifts back to Milwaukee where they have not lost this postseason.
