Pacers' JaKarr Sampson suspended 1 game for headbutt
Indiana Pacers forward JaKarr Sampson has been suspended one game for headbutting Patty Mills during Monday's game against the San Antonio Spurs.
Sampson's suspension could leave the Pacers pretty thin in the frontcourt on Wednesday. Domantas Sabonis (back) and Myles Turner (toe) have both been ruled out already while Goga Bitadze (ankle) is questionable after exiting early last game. Oshae Brissett may need to play as many minutes as he can handle. Kelan Martin and Brian Bowen could also enter the rotation.
Bitadze is currently numberFire's top overall value on Wednesday's 12-game slate. He has a salary of $5,400 and our models project him for 38.9 FanDuel points. Bitadze has scored over 30 FanDuel points three times in the last seven games.
