Every time he plays, Russell Westbrook $12900 presents the most crucial lineup decision in daily NBA contests at DraftKings. The news that Kevin Durant (foot) will not return has to be disappointing for the Thunder, but we don’t expect them to give up.
It has been a long-time coming for Ersan Ilyasova of the Milwaukee Bucks, but the forward has finally put together a stretch he can be proud of in the month of March.
