Utah Jazz DFS Spin
Mike Conley (right hamstring tightness) has been ruled out for Wednesday’s game against the Kings. Conley has aggravated the hamstring injury that put him on the shelf earlier this season, which obviously isn’t good news for either he or the Jazz. With Donovan Mitchell (right ankle) also sidelined, Utah will have a second starting lineup spot to fill Wednesday night. Joe Ingles will occupy one, while it’s anyone’s guess who will fill the other open spot. Ingles will certainly be worth rostering regardless of league format, while Jordan Clarkson and Bojan Bogdanovic should see their usage rates increase substantially.
Sacramento Kings DFS Spin
Harrison Barnes injured his hip/groin/adductor area on Monday and won’t return to the game against the Mavericks. He was clearly in pain and didn’t run down the court, instead heading straight to the bench. He was playing well with 19 points, six boards and three 3-pointers on 7-of-10 shooting, but his night is over after 24 minutes. It sounds like he could miss time with this injury and guys like Chimezie Metu, Moe Harkless and Delon Wright could see a boost in minutes if he’s out.
