Los Angeles Clippers forward Kawhi Leonard (load management) will not play Saturday night vs. the Chicago Bulls.

This isn’t anything new as Kawhi hasn’t played a full back-to-back set all season long. Paul George will now be the focal point of the offense and see massive usage even higher if a few other players are out. Lou Williams and Patrick Beverley are both questionable after missing last night’s win. If both are out again, PG-13 is a lock in DFS. If either returns, they’d be considered solid DFS plays as well, with the obvious lean in Lou Will’s favor.
