Utah Jazz DFS Notes
Rudy Gay (conditioning) will play in Sunday’s game against the Nuggets. He only missed a pair of games, but the good news ends there given that Rudy Gobert (protocols) will also be active tomorrow and therefore limit any fantasy appeal that Gay had. Only one of these Rudys should be rostered, and his last name is not Gay.
Denver Nuggets DFS Notes
Nikola Jokic played just 28 minutes but somehow still triple-doubled with his final stat line coming to 17 points, 12 rebounds, 13 assists, one steal, one trey and three turnovers in a blowout win over the Lakers. The fact that Jokic can triple-double and not even get a headline speaks for itself. Jeff Green and Bones Hyland torched L.A. for 26 and 27 points, respectively, and Jokic joined in on the fun by nearly recording his triple-double before halftime (14/9/9 at the break). The Joker is amazing and one would be silly to not include him in MVP talks yet again.
