Miami Heat DFS Spin

Victor Oladipo (sprained right ankle) is now doubtful for Thursday's game against the Knicks. Oladipo was listed as questionable earlier Wednesday, but now it appears unlikely he'll be available. Max Strus and Haywood Highsmith are in line to pick up additional minutes Thursday night, with Strus being the better option in deep leagues.

New York Knicks DFS Spin

Jalen Brunson recorded a line of 37 points (13-of-29 FGs, 9-of-9 FTs), two rebounds, six assists, one steal, one block, and two 3-pointers in Tuesday's 129-123 loss to the Lakers, playing 44 minutes. While Julius Randle (23 points, 12 rebounds, five assists, and two 3-pointers in 43 minutes) shot 6-of-19 from the field and RJ Barrett (13/3/2 in 27 minutes) had their issues offensively, Brunson surpassed the 30-point mark for the 11th time this season. He's failed to score at least 20 once since the calendar flipped to 2023, with the consistent scoring being a big reason why he's providing 4th-round value over the last month. Unfortunately for Brunson and the Knicks, this week won't get any easier, as next on the slate are home games against the Heat, Clippers, and 76ers.
