Toronto Raptors Fantasy Spin
Kawhi Leonard (hip) did not play for the Raptors on Tuesday night. It was the first game of a back-to-back set for the Raptors and Leonard went from likely to play, to questionable to play, to 'out' throughout the day. This was the first back-to-back set that Kawhi was supposed to play both nights of, but the hip injury isn't going to allow it to happen. It will also leave him iffy for Wednesday night against the Warriors, and owners have to be hoping that the Raptors are just being careful and saving him for Steph Curry and company tomorrow. Guys like Fred VanVleet, OG Anunoby, Danny Green and C.J. Miles could all step up in his place, while Kyle Lowry has a good shot at bouncing out of his slump.
Golden State Warriors Fantasy Spin
Kevin Durant scored 22 points (7-of-15 FG, 4-of-4 FT) with five rebounds, three assists, three steals and four 3-pointers Monday against the Timberwolves. One game after scoring a season-low 11 points Durant rebounded, making nearly half of his shot attempts and shooting 4-of-7 from beyond the arc Monday night. Next up for KD and the Warriors is a matchup with Toronto, a team he hung 51 points on in their first meeting this season (November 29).
