Atlanta Hawks DFS Notes
Trae Young (right hip) is probable for Sunday’s game against the Celtics. Young hasn’t missed a game since Jan. 5, so fantasy managers should not worry too much about his status. Barring anything out of the ordinary, Young will play Sunday.
Boston Celtics DFS Notes
Derrick White scored 15 points on 6-of-12 shooting (3-of-7 3-pointers) and added six rebounds, two assists, and two turnovers in Friday’s 108-102 win over Denver. White played 28 minutes in his debut, including the last 17 minutes of the game. He was a +11 in his time on the floor, which was the highest of any player on the team on Friday. He should be a great addition to the Celtics bench, after they traded away Dennis Schroder at the deadline. Jayson Tatum led all players in scoring with 24 points on 8-of-19 shooting (1-of-8 3-pointers) with six rebounds, five assists, and three steals in 27 minutes.
