Golden State Warriors DFS rotation
Golden State small forward Andrew Wiggins He has been sidelined since Feb. 13 due to a personal issue, but he will lead them into Saturday’s game against the Kings in Sacramento. Wiggins is fourth on the team in scoring at 17.1 points per game.
Warriors shooting guard Jordan Poole has celebrated in four games against the Kings this season. Poole has 8 points, 18 points, 2 points and 24 points in his four games against Sacramento this year. If you’re okay with some variance, the money could be in line for a big scoring day if Wiggins only plays 20-25 minutes as reported.
Sacramento Kings DFS Spin
Sacramento’s Harrison Barnes and Davion Mitchell are both likely to play in Saturday’s game against Golden State. Barnes tweaked an ankle on Wednesday and Mitchell struggled with left knee soreness. The pair combined to average 20.6 points per game for the Kings on the campaign.
2023 has been a big year for the Kings’ point guards D. Aaron Fox. The former No. 5 pick out of Kentucky is averaging 25 points per game on 51.2 percent shooting from the field this season. Fox contributes in other statistical categories as well, posting 6.1 assists, 4.2 rebounds, 1.1 steals and 1.6 three-pointers per game for Sacramento on the year. His clutch shooting and playmaking could make him an attractive DFS option despite his high weekend price.

This will be Sacramento’s first playoff appearance since 2006. It will be a night game on ABC and the crowd should be a major factor. This is important because of how bad Golden State has been on the road this year. The Warriors are 11-30 straight up on the road this season, a mark that ranks 27th in the NBA. They were terrible against the numbers on the road and were also 12-29 ATS as a road team this season, a mark that ranked last in the league. The Warriors are 5-13 ATS in their last 18 games against Sacramento, and I think the Kings will take Game 1 at home on Saturday night.
