Steve Nash said he's unsure if Kyrie Irving (personal) will be able to return to the team in time for Wednesday's game vs. the 76ers. Irving is taking yet another personal absence, and as per usual, we have no idea when he'll be back. Chris Chiozza got the spot-start tonight but hurt his thumb and left the game by halftime, so if both Chiozza and Irving are unavailable for tomorrow's game, Landry Shamet and Bruce Brown would get all the run they could handle. Stay tuned.
Philadelphia 76ers DFS Spin
Dwight Howard picked up his league-leading 14th technical foul on Monday, leaving him two techs away from a suspension. Howard isn't a fantasy option in most leagues and didn't even do much while Joel Embiid was on the shelf. He's rostered in some deep leagues and managers should be mindful of the likelihood that he'll hit the 16-technical limit over Philly's final 18 games.
