San Antonio Spurs DFS Notes
Josh Richardson (trade) is not listed on the injury report ahead of Monday’s game against the Bulls. Richardson should be good to go for Monday, which would be his Spurs debut after being acquired from the Celtics. J-Rich’s arrival should not have an impact on Devin Vassell, so fantasy managers should breathe easy. Gregg Popovich said recently that he expects Vassell to be in the starting lineup for the foreseeable future, so it remains a good time to go “all-in” on the second-year wing.
Chicago Bulls DFS Notes
Zach LaVine (left knee) is travelling to Los Angeles on Sunday to see a specialist, though he still plans to participate in All-Star Weekend, Adrian Wojnarowski reported. While it’s not definitively bad news, it’s certainly not a good sign for LaVine and the Bulls. We’ll have to wait and see what the specialist says, but hopefully LaVine won’t miss an extended period of time. If this ends up being bad news, Coby White has been in the starting lineup and should continue to start in place of LaVine. It seems as though LaVine may be out until the All-Star Break, so White should be an excellent streaming option until then.
