Charlotte Hornets DFS Spin
Gordon Hayward shot 7-of-7 from the field and 3-of-3 from the field in Sunday's 122-117 win over the Heat, tallying 20 points, five rebounds, two assists, and three 3-pointers in 26 minutes. Hayward produced his most efficient offensive game since returning from injury eight days ago, and this was a historic performance. He didn't miss a shot, becoming the first player in Hornets history to score 20 points or more with shooting splits of 100/100/100. Still rostered in 65% of Yahoo leagues, Hayward has been well off the radar regarding season-long fantasy value. That said, a performance like this could be the catalyst he sorely needed. But none of that will matter if Hayward can't stay healthy.
Milwaukee Bucks DFS Spin
Giannis Antetokounmpo (right knee soreness) is probable for Tuesday's game against the Hornets. Antetokounmpo was also listed as probable ahead of Sunday's win over the Pelicans, and all he did was go off for 50 points on 20-of-26 shooting from the field. Look for him to be on the court Tuesday night as the Bucks look to avenge one of their most disappointing efforts of the season, a 29-point home loss to the Hornets on January 6.
