In a game where the Golden State Warriors are heavily favored, the team will hold out power forward Draymond Green for Monday's matchup against the Phoenix Suns. Green should be considered day-to-day due to the sprained left finger.
It's worth noting the Warriors play just one more game, Wednesday against the Portland Trail Blazers, before the NBA's All Star Break. So the team may take the cautious approach and hold Green out for Wednesday's game as well. In that case, he would receive more than a full week of rest.
Both matchups will see Golden State as strong favorites, which could add further incentive to the team to hold him out of action. With Jordan Bell also out, Kevon Looney figures to see major run at power forward.
Looney, who averaged 11.2 minutes per night in Golden State's first five games this month, is not a major value target for DFS. Against the Houston Rockets on Jan. 20, Looney logged just two points and three rebounds in 30 minutes of action. Golden State has limited him to 20-plus minutes in just four of 45 contests this season.
From a DFS angle, look for Kevin Durant and Stephen Curry to see just a slight uptick in usage. While Andre Iguodala should also log more minutes tonight.
