Houston Rockets DFS Notes

Christian Wood had a 16-point, 13-rebound double-double in Sunday’s ugly loss to the Lakers, also adding two assists, one triple and three turnovers in 35 minutes. Wood didn’t have any defensive stats and made just one of his seven shots from the charity stripe, so it wasn’t all good for the young big man tonight. His 71.4% free throw percentage before tonight will fall to 57.1% after his struggles there on Sunday, but there was a lid on the basket for a lot of this game for Houston. Keep hanging in there with Wood as his ceiling is nearly unlimited and he’ll only get better as the season progresses.

Los Angeles Lakers DFS Notes

LeBron James is listed as questionable for Tuesday's game against the Rockets. He played well on Sunday but unlike teammate Anthony Davis, who is probable, LeBron only gets the questionable tag. Chances are he'll play but this game should be a blowout and is possible the Laker stars could see limited minutes in the second half if they can build a big lead.
