Washington Wizards DFS Spin

Kyle Kuzma (ankle) has been ruled out of Tuesday's matchup with Orlando. With Kuz sidelined, Corey Kispert and Deni Avdija are the most likely fantasy beneficiaries. Anthony Gill is expected to log a few extra minutes as well, but he's not in the streaming conversation.

Orlando Magic DFS Spin

Paolo Banchero accounted for 21 points (8-of-20 FGs, 4-of-4 FTs), six rebounds, three assists, and one 3-pointer in Sunday's 111-105 loss to the Lakers, playing 36 minutes.  Banchero picked up a critical technical foul in the game's final minutes, but the truth of the matter was that Austin Reaves (35 points) wasn't going to let the Lakers lose. Banchero has scored 20 points or more in 36 games this season, by far the most for any rookie this season (Bennedict Mathurin is second with 24). Unfortunately, the scoring hasn't translated to fantasy basketball, as Banchero is ranked just outside the top 200 in 9-cat, per-game value. Orlando plays three games at home in Week 22, beginning Tuesday night against the Wizards.
