Milwaukee Bucks DFS Spin
Giannis Antetokounmpo shot 14-of-23 from the field and 2-of-5 from the foul line in Wednesday's 130-94 win over the Spurs, accumulating 31 points, 14 rebounds, two assists, one blocked shot, and one 3-pointer in 24 minutes. Milwaukee established a comfortable lead by halftime and then proceeded to blow San Antonio's doors off in the second half. The outcome got some of the Bucks' established stars additional rest, with Antetokounmpo playing 24 minutes and no starter going beyond 29 (Khris Middleton). While Giannis may still be ranked outside the top 100 in 9-cat value, that's due largely to his poor free throw percentage and high turnover count. Managers who have him rostered will be in a good place as the fantasy playoffs approach their conclusion.
Utah Jazz DFS Spin
Lauri Markkanen is out for Friday's matchup with the Bucks due to a left hand contusion. The star big man's left hand contusion flared up multiple times Wednesday night, according to Tony Jones. With Markkanen out of action, Talen Horton-Tucker and Simone Fontecchio should pick up some extra playing time.
