Phoenix Suns DFS Notes
Deandre Ayton (right ankle sprain) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Jazz. Ayton will sit out a fifth straight game due to the ankle injury. With him and JaVale McGee (left knee) sidelined, Bismack Biyombo stands to get the start opposite Utah backup Hassan Whiteside. He should already be on the radar in most leagues, but if Biyombo is sitting on the waiver wire he's a must-have. Jalen Smith will be the backup, but there isn't much value to be had there.
Utah Jazz DFS Notes
Donovan Mitchell (concussion) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Suns. Utah will be without its two best players Wednesday night, as Mitchell and Rudy Gobert (left calf strain) have both been ruled out. Mike Conley and Joe Ingles will be available, which will mean a return to the bench for both Trent Forrest and Jordan Clarkson. Clarkson stands to be the better fantasy option than Ingles, especially for managers who will need to get scoring from their guards.
