Atlanta Hawks DFS Notes
Trae Young scored 22 points (9-of-20 FGs, 4-of-4 FTs) with 13 assists, six rebounds and one turnover in Friday’s loss to Toronto. Trae was coming off a 43-point outing which is absurd when you consider he wasn’t even healthy. “I wish [the shoulder] was 100 percent fine,” Young said. “It’s still sore.” Despite the loss tonight, the Hawks are still trending up and are 8-2 in their last 10 games. They will get a matchup vs. Luka Doncic and the Mavs on Sunday.
Dallas Mavericks DFS Notes
Kristaps Porzingis (right knee bruise) has been ruled out for Sunday’s game vs. the Hawks. Porzingis will miss his fourth consecutive game due to a right knee contusion and will remain as day-to-day. Reggie Bullock and Dorian Finney-Smith should see increased minutes against the Hawks. Luka Doncic will continue to see a boost in usage, so more monster games could be ahead.
