Portland Trail Blazers DFS Spin
Josh Hart is listed as probable for Wednesday’s game against Cleveland due to a left ankle sprain. Hart was one rebound shy of a double-double during Monday’s contest, but he also appears to have sprained his ankle. Regardless, the issue doesn’t seem too serious and shouldn’t force him to miss his first game of the season. Across 17 appearances, the sixth-year wing has averaged 9.6 points, 8.4 rebounds, 4.0 assists and 1.4 steals in 35.7 minutes per game.
Cleveland Cavs DFS Spin
Kevin Love (thumb) is questionable for Wednesday’s game against Portland, Danny Cunningham of 1500 ESPN Twin Cities reports. Love returned Monday from a one-game absence due to a thumb injury but was held scoreless across 12 minutes. It’s unclear if he aggravated the injury or if the team is simply being cautious. However, if the veteran is sidelined Wednesday, Dean Wade, who’s expected to return following a six-game absence due to a knee injury, would likely absorb Love’s missing minutes.
