FanDuel Fantasy Points Per Game More DFS

Hornets' Bryce McGowens removed from starting lineup Thursday

Charlotte Hornets shooting guard Bryce McGowens is not in the starting lineup on Thursday against the Chicago Bulls.

What It Means:

LaMelo Ball (ankle/wrist) is back from a three-game absence, so McGowens is returning to the bench after starting on Tuesday. He only averages 6.7 minutes per game with Ball active this season.

numberFire's models project LaMelo for 34.9 minutes and 44.1 FanDuel points on Thursday, and he has a $9,000 salary on the Main slate. Per our NBA Heat Map, the Hornets’ implied total (114.25) is tied for No. 5 out of 12 active teams today.
