Milwaukee Bucks DFS Notes

Giannis Antetokounmpo (right ankle sprain) is probable for Friday's game against the Celtics. Despite tweaking his ankle during Wednesday's win over the Knicks, Antetokounmpo still managed to play 38 minutes. With the reigning NBA Finals MVP listed as probable, it appears likely that he'll fill his same role Friday night.

Boston Celtics DFS Notes

Jayson Tatum hit just 8-of-24 shots but still finished with 22 points, 12 rebounds, seven assists, a steal and three 3-pointers in Wednesday's easy 104-88 win over the Raptors. Tatum looked like he'd finish with a triple-double in relatively easy fashion but was never able to get there. All five Celtics starters scored in double figures and they got 15 points from Josh Richardson off the bench. With Jaylen Brown on the shelf for a bit Tatum should have a lot of big stat lines coming in the next week or so.
