Cleveland Cavs DFS Spin
Donovan Mitchell (strained left groin) is now probable for Tuesday's game against the Knicks. Mitchell was a full participant in Monday's practice, so all signs indicate him being able to play after a three-game absence. This would also mean a return to the bench for Caris LeVert, whose production has decreased significantly when asked to fulfill the sixth-man role.
New York Knicks DFS Spin
RJ Barrett finished Sunday’s loss to the Raptors with 30 points on 10-of-18 shooting, adding seven rebounds, five assists and four triples across 41 minutes. Barrett scored 15 points in the first half and equaled that total in the second to produce his fifth 30-point effort of the season and second across his last four outings. Over that four-game span, Barrett has averaged 26.5 points, 6.0 rebounds and 2.8 assists. The counting stats are on the rise, but Barrett’s efficiency, turnovers and lack of defensive stats still have him situated outside the top 125 in 9-cat formats over the last week. He’s got a place in 12-team leagues based on team build, but he’s certainly not a must-roster option for every team.
