San Antonio Spurs Daily Fantasy Spin
San Antonio small forward Doug McDermott (illness), shooting guard Devin Vassell (knee), power forward Zach Collins (thumb), and power forward Victor Wembanyama (hip) are all probable to play against Minnesota on Wednesday.
The most crucial player in that group is likely Wembanyama. The rookie from France leads the Spurs in scoring with 19.3 points per game and tops the club in rebounding with 9.7 boards per game. Vassell and Collins are second and fourth on the team in scoring, respectively.
Minnesota Timberwolves Daily Fantasy Spin
Timberwolves star shooting guard Anthony Edwards has missed the team’s last two games with a right hip contusion, and he’s officially listed as questionable for Wednesday’s home date with the Spurs. Edwards is Minnesota’s best player and is averaging 26.2 points, 5.9 rebounds, 5.0 assists, and 1.3 steals per game this season.
Minnesota power forward Jaden McDaniels will miss Wednesday’s game with a right ankle sprain. McDaniels is averaging 9.5 points per game in 11 starts for the Timberwolves in 2023.

Spurs vs. Timberwolves NBA Prediction:
The Spurs are going through it right now. San Antonio has lost 14 straight games straight up. The more interesting number though, is the Spurs recent record against the spread. San Antonio is 3-2 ATS in their last 5 games, with ATS wins over the Clippers, Warriors, and Hawks. The Spurs last played on Friday. The extended rest should give San Antonio head coach Gregg Popovich time to work with his younger players and help them improve.
The injury status of Minnesota’s Anthony Edwards is worth keeping an eye on. The former #1 overall pick is not only the team’s best player, he is their fiery leader on the floor. The team seems to play with an edge with Edwards in the lineup, and they’ll be missing more than his scoring and defense if he’s forced to sit out a third straight game on Wednesday. Irrespective of his injury status, I like the Spurs to cover the double-digit spread in Minneapolis on Wednesday.
