Dallas Mavericks DFS Spin
Spencer Dinwiddie (shoulder) is questionable for Wednesday's game against the Celtics. Dinwiddie dislocated his shoulder during Sunday's loss to the Nuggets but may not miss much, if any, time. If he needs to take Wednesday's game off, more minutes could be in store for Frank Ntilikina, Facundo Campazzo and wings like Tim Hardaway and Josh Green.
Boston Celtics DFS Spin
Jayson Tatum is questionable for Wednesday's game against Dallas due to a left ankle sprain. It's unclear when Tatum suffered the injury, but the superstar forward may miss his first game of the season due to an ankle issue. If he's sidelined, Malcolm Brogdon and Derrick White would be the most likely candidates to enter the starting lineup, while Jaylen Brown would step up as the team's go-to playmaker.
