Brooklyn Nets DFS Spin
Ben Simmons (nerve impingement in back) will remain sidelined as the team determines the best course of action. Simmons hasn't played since before the All-Star break, and if you were holding on to him for some reason, feel free to drop him. It's incredibly unlikely that he plays again this season, and it feels like the "best long-term course of treatment" will be Simmons moving on this summer.
Miami Heat DFS Spin
Kyle Lowry (left knee soreness) is questionable for Saturday's game against the Nets. Lowry was also listed as questionable ahead of Wednesday's win over the Knicks, a game he logged 24 minutes in off the bench. Fantasy managers should expect a similar setup on Saturday, with Gabe Vincent remaining in the starting lineup.

Nets vs. Heat NBA Prediction:
The Heat have been more impressive on the hardwood than they have at the betting window of late, so I’m going to bypass the spread tonight and instead look at the total. The under is 8-3 in the last 11 meetings between these two teams in Miami and 6-2 in the last eight meetings overall. The under is also 7-3 in the Nets’ last 10 games playing on one day of rest, is 6-2 in their last eight games when facing an opponent with a winning record and is 17-8 in their last 25 games coming off a win.
