NBA's DFS slate on Thursday is only four games deep, but there are still a number of injury situations that need to be monitored. Here's what you need to know before lineups lock tonight.
The Dallas Mavericks played on Wednesday and now will be without several starters tonight, beginning with Dirk Nowitzki. He is resting and will be joining Deron Williams and Wesley Matthews on the bench.
With all these veterans sitting out, the Mavs need several players to step up. Seth Curry and Devin Harris could handle the ball a lot tonight, while Dwight Powell should get a lift with Nowitzki out.
Both Monta Ellis and Aaron Brooks will be able to play for the Indiana Pacers. However, Rodney Stuckey is still out, so Ellis and C.J. Miles are both in play as options.
Los Angeles Lakers
Julius Randle is currently questionable for tonight. Larry Nance Jr. is probable and would pick up a lot of minutes if Randle isn't able to play.
Rodney Hood, Utah Jazz
Rodney Hood went through portions of shootaround this morning and is also currently questionable for tonight. If he plays, Joe Ingles and Alec Burks would see a reduction in minutes.
Emmanuel Mudiay, Denver Nuggets
Emmanuel Mudiay will be out again on Thursday, so look for Jamal Murray and Jameer Nelson to pick up plenty of ball handling duties, with Nelson likely being the better play.
Dragan Bender, Phoenix Suns
Dragan Bender looks good to go tonight, as does Jared Dudley. This muddies the waters in the Phoenix Suns' power forward rotation, so Marquese Chriss takes a slight hit with this news.
