Golden State Warriors forward Andrew Wiggins has been ruled out for Thursday’s game vs. the Los Angeles Lakers due to back spasms. Wiggins wasn’t listed earlier in the day on the injury report, so this is more or less a late scratch situation. Luckily we have the news well before the game locks at 10:30 p.m. ET. Adjust your lineups accordingly. If you had Wiggins in DFS, Marquese Chriss, Damion Lee and Jordan Poole are decent pivots to pick up the scoring slack. The Dubs are in a worst spot on the spread and it’s hard to view them as a safe bet on the money line.
