Dallas Mavericks DFS Spin
Luka Doncic (left calf strain), Jaden Hardy (left ankle sprain) and Dwight Powell (illness) are all questionable to play against the Spurs on Wednesday. It’s only game one, but there is a lot of unknown when it comes to the Mavs’ lineup. Luka’s absence will give Kyrie Irving more usage and open up a lot of minutes and shots for Josh Green and Jaden Hardy, if he plays. Tim Hardaway Jr. could also see some extra minutes if Hardy isn’t able to suit up. If Powell can’t play, Dereck Lively and Richaun Holmes will have to hold down all of the center minutes, which would make both of them solid options.
San Antonio Spurs DFS Spin
Victor Wembanyama shined on Friday with 19 points (8-for-19 FGs), four rebounds, one assist, one steal, five blocks and two triples in a 122-117 win over the Warriors. Per usual, Wemby provided plenty of flair in his final preseason game for the year. Between his blocks and buckets, he was making jaw-dropping plays on both ends of the floor. He should be among the league leaders in blocks per game this season. However, we also saw what some of his struggles may look like during his rookie year. He didn’t grab many rebounds, and he shot a low percentage from the floor. It feels nitpicky, and he’s going to have an incredible season, but he won’t be the best player in basketball from day one, despite any narratives that are pushed. Jeremy Sochan had another start at point guard and posted a 7/11/6/1 line. Tre Jones dropped eight dimes in just 17 minutes off the bench as well.
