Stats Through Two Games
After injuring his left hamstring during Game 2, Klay Thompson has been deemed questionable for Game 3. Even if he does play, it seems likely he'll be at less than 100 percent. Ultimately, there's a scenario where Thompson doesn't play or plays very little, so we should prepare for that in DFS.
- Jonas Jerebko has seen the most minutes (68.1), and averages 1.0 fantasy point per minute
- Draymond Green and Steph Curry average over 55 FP per 36 minutes
- Andre Iguodala loses 11.1 FP per 36 minutes
- DeMarcus Cousins loses 13.9 FP per 36 minutes
It's important to keep in mind that the sample size is small – for example, Curry has played only 26.0 total minutes under these conditions – but we can still gain some insight.
We can't forget about the other side of the ball. Thompson is a top-flight defender, and if he's out or hampered, Toronto should have an easier time offensively. In this series, Thompson has primarily guarded Kawhi Leonard (44 possessions) and Kyle Lowry (38 possessions). Both players could be worth targeting as a result.
