According to Shams Charania, James Harden will debut for the Clippers on Monday against the Knicks, and Russell Westbrook will remain in the starting five moving forward.
Harden will make his much-anticipated 2023-24 debut, but we’re not going to bury the lead here. The most compelling story is Westbrook remaining with the first unit. Westy and Harden will start alongside Kawhi Leonard, Paul George and Ivica Zubac for the foreseeable future. Westbrook’s value in 12-team leagues will surely still take a hit, but he could still be a viable option since he’s not shifting to a bench role.
New York Knicks DFS Spin
Jalen Brunson played 42 minutes in Friday’s 110-105 loss to the Bucks, accounting for 45 points (17-of-30 FGs, 9-of-11 FTs), five rebounds, four assists, one steal, and two 3-pointers.
A lot has been made of Julius Randle’s offensive struggles to begin the season, and rightfully so. But Brunson didn’t get off to the best start, either, with his field-goal percentage inside the arc being uncharacteristically poor. Well, on Friday, he looked like the player who was one of the most improved in the NBA last season, pumping 45 points on good percentages while dishing out four assists. But Randle continues to struggle, shooting 5-of-20 from the field and finishing the loss to the Bucks with 16 points, 12 rebounds, five assists, two steals, and one 3-pointer in 39 minutes. With RJ Barrett sidelined due to injury, the Knicks are going to need more high-scoring nights from Brunson, which is good news for those who have him rostered.
