Golden State Warriors DFS Notes
Stephen Curry 18 points, 10 assists, nine rebounds and a steal Monday as the Warriors beat the Thunder 110-98. Curry nearly produced a triple-double as he turned in an all-around performance in Monday’s victory. Over his last nine games, Curry has averaged 7.9 assists, and he’s benefited tremendously as a facilitator from Draymond Green’s extended absence.
Utah Jazz DFS Notes
Rudy Gobert (left calf strain) has been ruled out for Wednesday’s game against the Warriors. Gobert remains sidelined with the strained calf, and the hope is that he’ll be able to return before the All-Star break. Either Udoka Azubuike or Hassan Whiteside will get the call to start Wednesday night, and given the matchup, whichever one doesn’t could be in for a long night on the bench. Golden State has just one true center in Kevon Looney, so this could open the door for Eric Paschall to play a few minutes at the five.
