Miami Heat DFS Notes
Jimmy Butler has been fined $30,000 for attempting to escalate the altercation between Nikola Jokic and Markieff Morris on Monday night. Butler appeared to be screaming "Bring your a-- to the back" at Jokic after the play, hinting that he wanted to have a word with him after the game. And in hindsight, now that Marcus Morris and Jokic's siblings have gotten involved in the dispute on Twitter, it's probably for the best that none of them were in the arena on Monday night.
Los Angeles Lakers DFS Notes
LeBron James has been ruled out for Wednesday's game due his ab strain and could miss weeks, as opposed to days. We've got him listed as out indefinitely and fantasy managers should assume he's not playing any time soon unless we get good news at some point.
