Golden State Warriors DFS Notes
Klay Thompson will play in Thursday’s game against the Bucks but will be rested for Friday’s game against the Bulls. Steve Kerr already said that Klay would sit out one of the games in the Dubs’ upcoming back-to-back set, so they’ll choose to rest him against the Bulls as opposed to the defending champs. When Klay sits Friday, Jordan Poole will be the main beneficiary and is worth a look.
Milwaukee Bucks DFS Notes
Giannis Antetokounmpo hit 10-of-18 shots for 26 points to go with 13 rebounds, eight assists, one steal and a block as the Bucks fell to the Hornets for a second straight game Monday. He also committed six turnovers. The Greek Freak went for at least 40/12 in each of his last two matchups with Charlotte, but he failed to hit that lofty scoring mark in this one, ceding some of the scoring to Khris Middleton and Jordan Nwora. Milwaukee has now lost two in a row to the Hornets and two of three on the season to Charlotte. Despite the losing effort, Giannis was efficient as a shooter and came through for fantasy managers in the box score.
