NBA DFS picks September 8: Can Middleton save the Bucks again?

We have another two game NBA DFS slate from the bubble today. Giannis and the Bucks finally took a game, but are still facing elimination. The Lakers tied up the Rockets heading into Game 3. There are stars galore on this game set and one free space to help fit them in.

This should be another interesting slate. Let’s check some injuries because I think I want Giannis with his back to the wall. We need some value!

Out: Chris Silva (pelvis)

Questionable: Giannis Antetokounmpo (ankle), Tyler Herro (hip), Kelly Olynyk (knee)

LeBron and The Brow have been questionable since stepping into the bubble. They’re playing. It’s just a formality by now. Neither are in danger of missing this game. That’s the whole reason they agreed to this thing in the first place. They want to put a ring on it.

Giannis only played 11 minutes in Game 5, but was incredibly efficient. I would plan on him playing more tonight. The Bucks can’t keep winning without him.

Herro played and played well despite the hip concerns in Game 4. I would expect him to play again. Same with Olynyk, though he only played nine minutes in Game 4.

I had too much Lowry to cash last night. Clippers/Nuggets value also didn’t work out in the one place that I didn’t use Lowry.
