Los Angeles Clippers DFS Spin
Kawhi Leonard (right ankle sprain) is questionable for Monday's game against the Hornets. The Clippers could be as close to full strength as they've been for quite some time come Monday, as Leonard and Paul George are listed as questionable. Terance Mann and Amir Coffey are the players most impacted, as both would be pushed to the second unit if Leonard and George are cleared. Fantasy managers streaming Mann and/or Coffey should wait until the Clippers' star wings are officially cleared before dropping them.
Charlotte Hornets DFS Spin
P.J. Washington shot 0-of-13 from the field and finished with zero points, eight rebounds, five assists, three steals and three blocks in Saturday’s loss to the Bucks. Washington kept hoisting up shots, but none of them fell, marking the third time in his career he was held scoreless and the first time since November 24, 2021. He had averaged 18.9 points and 2.5 triples across his last five outings while shooting better than 46% from the field, so we won’t read too much into the frigid shooting night. Fortunately for fantasy managers, points are only one of nine categories, and Washington impacted the game stupendously as a rebounder, facilitator and defender. We wouldn’t expect another goose egg in the scoring column anytime soon.
