Orlando Magic DFS Spin
Markelle Fultz (left knee tendinitis) has been ruled out for Wednesday’s game against the Bulls. Fultz has been ruled out for the sixth time in Orlando’s last seven games, a development that’s concerning, to say the least. Anthony Black should remain in the starting lineup, while Cole Anthony and Joe Ingles will have increased opportunities coming off the bench.
Chicago Bulls DFS Spin
DeMar DeRozan will be away from the team for Wednesday’s game against the Magic as he is attending to a family matter, but he is expected to be back on Friday, according to Bleacher Report’s Chris Haynes.
This will be DeMar’s first absence of the season, though he wasn’t on the initial injury report. Alex Caruso (toe) is questionable, and if he’s back, he should start in place of DeRozan. If he remains out, Patrick Williams should return to the starting unit. It will only be a one game absence for DeMar, so Caruso or Williams would only receive a boost on Wednesday.
