Golden State Warriors DFS Spin
Draymond Green (muscle strain, right foot) participated in Thursday's practice, but remains out for Friday's game against the Bucks. It had already been determined that Green would not play on Christmas Day, but he was able to go through Thursday's practice without any limitations. Steve Kerr said that he's hopeful to have Green available for Sunday's game against the Bulls. His return would mean a return to the bench for Eric Paschall.
Milwaukee Bucks DFS Spin
Giannis Antetokounmpo posted a 35-point, 13-rebound double-double in Wednesday's one-point loss to the Celtics. The Greek Freak added two assists, three triples, two blocks and an unfortunate seven turnovers while he was out there, and he got his points efficiently, going 13-of-26 from the field and 6-of-8 from the stripe. Khris Middleton finished with 27 points, 14 rebounds, eight assists, three triples, and two turnovers in 38 minutes, and these two shouldn't have any trouble putting up elite numbers this season.
