Injury Report

Core Plays

Trae Young (PG – ATL): $9,200 DraftKings, $9,300 FanDuel
Young just returned from a hand injury last week, but we assume he’s ready for a full workload. He played 32 minutes in the final game of the regular season and averaged 46 DK points per game across 36 minutes a night during the year. He also had at least 32 fantasy points in all but four fixtures and should be looking at 40 minutes, 20 shots, and double-digit assists in this elimination game. He’s also got at least 42 fantasy points in 11 of his last 12 meetings with Chicago over the last four years!
