Denver Nuggets DFS Notes

JaMychal Green (right ankle) is being listed as questionable for Wednesday's game vs. the Thunder. Green has missed the past three games with his sprained right ankle, but this is the first time he's being listed as questionable since going down, which indicates progress. He typically only logs minutes in the teens behind Nikola Jokic, though, so even if he's cleared it won't matter much in fantasy hoops.

Oklahoma City Thunder DFS Notes

Darius Bazley accumulated 10 points, seven rebounds, four blocks and an assist as the Thunder captured a third straight victory, with a 102-99 win over the Grizzlies on Monday. It was just another day at the office for Baz, who contributed strong rebounding and defense. The four-swat effort was his ninth multi-block game of the season and second in a row. Bazley is a dreadfully-inefficient shooter who offers fantasy managers rebounds and blocks with little else. He's outside the top-175 and doesn't belong on 12-team redraft rosters.
