Brooklyn Nets Daily Fantasy Spin
Brooklyn point guard Ben Simmons will sit out Thursday’s game with a hip injury. Simmons is averaging 6.5 points, 10.8 rebounds, and 6.7 assists in 6 six starts for the Nets this season. Additionally, Simmons is third on the team in minutes with 31.8 per game.
Nets sharpshooting guard Cam Thomas will also miss Thursday’s game as he deals with an ankle ailment. Thomas is second on the Nets in minutes this season with 32.5 per game and leads the club in scoring this year with 26.9 points per game.
Miami Heat Daily Fantasy Spin
Heat guard Tyler Herro won’t play in Thursday’s clash with the Nets due to a Grade 2 right ankle sprain. Herro is second on the team in both minutes with 34.0 per game and scoring with 22.9 points per game.
Heat small forward Caleb Martin has been dealing with left knee tendinitis of late, but he’s probable to play in Thursday’s home tilt with the Nets. Martin averaged 12.7 points and 5.4 rebounds per game for Miami in last year’s postseason.

Nets vs. Heat NBA Prediction:
Brooklyn has been the best team against the number all season as they are 9-1-1 against the spread. The Nets have been doing it with offense. Brooklyn ranks in the top 8 in the NBA in offensive efficiency, effective field goal percentage, and three-point shooting percentage. The Nets just beat the Magic by 20 points at home on Tuesday and they did it without Ben Simmons or Cam Thomas.
Miami will likely miss Tyler Herro’s scoring in this game and I think that the Heat will continue to struggle against the number this season like they did last year. I’m taking the Nets and the points on the road on Thursday night.
