Golden State Warriors DFS Notes

There is a "strong expectation" that Mike Brown will coach the Warriors in Game 5 of their series with Memphis on Wednesday, per Anthony Slater of The Athletic. Steve Kerr was ruled out for Game 4 shortly before the game began, and Brown coached the team to a 101-98 victory. Brown signed a 4-year coaching deal with the Kings on Sunday, so it's been an eventful week for him thus far. All signs point towards Brown leading the Warriors into battle again on Wednesday, with a chance to close out the series. Brown is the first Kings' coach to win a playoff game since 2006, even if it'll take a bit more work to actually have Sacramento win a playoff game.

Memphis Grizzlies DFS Notes

Ja Morant (right knee bone bruise) has been ruled out of Game 5 against the Warriors on Wednesday and is considered doubtful for the remainder of the playoffs. Morant has been diagnosed with a bone bruise in his right knee and is considered doubtful to return for the remainder of the playoffs. Expect Tyus Jones to slide into the starting lineup going forward and is a solid player to look at for DFS.
