Phoenix Suns DFS Notes
Deandre Ayton (right ankle sprain) and Jae Crowder (left wrist contusion) are both probable for Thursday’s game against the Hawks. Both guys played last night and looked just fine in the Suns’ 11th straight victory, so they probably popped up on the injury report as a safety measure. They’re both fully expected to be active and starting come tomorrow.
Atlanta Hawks DFS Notes
Trae Young (right shoulder contusion) will be a game-time decision for Thursday’s game against Phoenix, according to Hawks head coach Nate McMillan. Young did not take contact in practice on Wednesday, but he did do some shooting, according to Chris Kirschner of The Athletic. Young missed Monday’s game against Toronto, and Delon Wright slid into the starting lineup, so this would likely be the case again on Thursday if Young can’t go.
