Boston Celtics DFS Notes
Marcus Smart (right ankle) and Robert Williams (left knee) are questionable for Game 7 vs. Miami. The Celtics aren’t fooling anyone here. Both Smart and Williams have been playing at less than 100 percent but they aren’t going to miss this game with the season on the line. As for the Miami side of things, the only player to truly monitor is Tyler Herro (groin).
Miami Heat DFS Notes
Tyler Herro (groin) is officially questionable for Game 7 on Sunday. Max Strus (hamstring), Kyle Lowry (hamstring), P.J. Tucker (knee) and Gabe Vincent (hamstring) are also questionable, but Herro is the only status that means anything based on how Miami has handled their injury report. Look for him to warm up and be a game-time call with their season on the line. Victor Oladipo will have to step up off the bench if Herro can’t get the green light.
