Denver Nuggets DFS Spin
Aaron Gordon (strained right heel) is probable for Wednesday's game against the Raptors. Gordon is once again listed as likely to play, suggesting he will eventually be cleared. If Justin Holiday sits, he'll return to the starting lineup and could provide major league value in 3-pointers and steals.
Toronto Raptors DFS Spin
Gary Trent Jr Had a double-double against Charlotte on Monday with 22 points (9-of-17 FG), 10 rebounds, three assists, one steal and four 3-pointers. Trent Jr. has never had many rebounds or assists, but he managed to record his first career double-double in this game. His career-high averages are 2.7 rebounds and 2.0 assists, so the fact that it took him until his sixth season to set a record isn't as surprising as it sounds.
GTJ's steals have dropped from 1.6 to 0.7 this season, greatly reducing his value. He is outside the top 250 in nine-cat leagues after two straight top-75 seasons. It doesn't look like he's going to start collecting steals anytime soon, and even though he played well on Monday, he should remain on the waiver wire.
