Milwaukee Bucks DFS Notes

Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 27 points on 9-of-19 shooting (3-of-3 from deep, 6-of-7 from the line), to go along with 12 rebounds, two assists, and a block during Monday night's victory over the Cavaliers. Giannis may not be the best shooter on the team, but he was the only Milwaukee Buck to make all of his 3-pointers. That speaks more to his improved dominance than him being a better shooter than Khris Middleton or Pat Connaughton, but it’s definitely nice to see that continued improvement on his jumper.

Miami Heat DFS Notes

Jimmy Butler (tailbone) will not suit up in Wednesday's game vs. the Bucks. Butler returned from a four-game absence on Monday, but then aggravated his tailbone injury, so he’ll find himself back on the sidelines tomorrow night and it’s possible he could miss some more games. Tyler Herro and Kyle Lowry will be asked to step it up on offense with both Butler and Bam Adebayo (thumb) on the sidelines, and there will be more opportunity for Caleb Martin.
