There are are a slew of injuries that will affect Monday’s NBA games significantly, and that means there is plenty of value DFS plays. Multiple players should get extended run thanks to starters sitting, and we’ll go over some of the best options here.

Terence Davis ($3,100)

The Toronto Raptors have clinched the second seed in the Eastern Conference, so there’s no need for them to go all out for the remainder of the regular season. Kyle Lowry and Fred VanVleet have played a ton of minutes in seeding games and are listed as questionable for Monday’s matchup against the Milwaukee Bucks. Although he averages .93 DKFP per minute, Patrick McCaw is out of the bubble. He can stuff the stat sheet and has scored 31 points with Lowry and VanVleet playing. Imagine what he can do if neither suits up.

The Bucks’ backup power forwards

Milwaukee has clinched the top spot in the Eastern Conference and Giannis Antetokounmpo is sitting out with a toothache. That means Ersan Ilyasova ($3,500) and Marvin Williams ($3,200) are worth a look at power forward. Williams hasn’t failed to reach double-digits in DKFP once in the bubble and seems like the better option because of his consistent minutes.

Lakers role players

LeBron James and Anthony Davis are listed as questionable in the last game of the day. James flirted with a triple-double in his last game and might not play for a second night in a row. That could like Alex Caruso ($3,700) and Quinn Cook ($,300) worth a look. Both cracked 20 DKFP in their last outings and could split duties at point guard.
