Atlanta Hawks DFS Notes
Trae Young (right knee soreness) is being listed as probable for Wednesday's game in Brooklyn. Young is dealing with a bit of discomfort in his right knee, and Wednesday's game will be the first of a back-to-back, but it doesn't sound like he has any intention of sitting this one out. Check back for another update following tomorrow's shootaround.
Brooklyn Nets DFS Notes
Kevin Durant was ejected from Sunday's game after picking up a flagrant two foul, ending his evening with 23 points, one rebound, five dimes, one 3-pointer, one block and three turnovers in 27 minutes. KD got tangled up with Kelly Olynyk, threw an elbow at his head and then shoved him to the ground, which the refs deemed "unnecessary and excessive." It was. But he still finished with a solid stat line, and it would be shocking to see him face any further disciplinary action from the league.
