Devonte’ Graham not expected to play Tuesday vs. Pacers [UPDATE]

Malik Monk is expected to start for Graham and while the PG is active, he may not play. Stay tuned.

UPDATE: Okay, we’ve finally got some clarity from the Hornets on Graham.

So Graham isn’t expected to play due to rest, essentially. With this we know Monk will start and is a strong value in DFS. Terry Rozier is also a strong GPP play in this situation, but I like the Pacers in terms of betting on Sportsbook with the line relatively low even if it’s up in the double-digits.

UPDATE: So the Hornets just tweeted this out, so sort of conflicting reports here. I’d keep an eye on this situation closely leading up the game time.

Charlotte Hornets PG Devonte’ Graham is active for Tuesday’s game vs. the Indiana Pacers, but his status is uncertain for the game. G Malik Monk is expected to start for Graham.

We don’t yet know what the deal is with Graham, but we know that Monk is going to start, so that’s not a great sign. This makes Monk an excellent DFS play on DraftKings at $4,900. He was already a top value play on DKN heading into the slate and this only solidifies him as a top chalk play. His ownership should spike in more GPPs and cash games.

As for some gambling advice, well, this definitely makes it easier on the Pacers to cover that wide spread of -10.5 on DraftKings Sportsbook. The Hornets have been pretty bad on the road and against tough competition for most of the season.
