Los Angeles Lakers DFS rotation
Anthony Davis (right foot stress injury) is probable for Thursday’s game against the Pacers. Davis should be fine after playing 37 minutes in Tuesday’s win over the Knicks. He was supposed to be limited 30-32 minutes, but the game went into overtime and AD was on the court for all of those 5 minutes. His return has reduced Thomas Bryant’s playing time and fantasy value.
Indiana Pacers DFS rotation
Rick Carlyle said he expects Tyrese Halliburton (torn left elbow, sprained left knee) for Thursday’s game against the Lakers. Haliburton’s return would mean the end of TJ McConnell’s current value. McConnell has been one of the top assets in nine-cat leagues at No. 75 over the past two weeks, but he will be limited in his return to a role off the bench. It’s the first game of the back-to-back, so it wouldn’t be a shock to see Halliburton get a Friday night off, giving McConnell another valuable game.
