Kings C DeMarcus Cousins suspended one game and fined $20K for actions in recent games
Perfect example of how important your reputation is as Joakim Noah was able to go off on a profane laced tirade towards the refs when he was booted out of game earlier in the season and all he got was a fine. Speaking of profanity, I can almost here those of you who own Cousins in season long leagues as you had to be looking forward to this cupcake matchup for Cousins, instead DFS players will be looking to Reggie Evans, Jason Thompson and/or Carl Landry to cash in on with. (Update: Cousins was suspended for throwing a punch).ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Cubs manager Joe Maddon said Addison Russell will start and bat ninth Tuesday.
The team wasn’t going to bring up a top prospect to have him sit on the bench. The Cubs were getting little production out of their second baseman, so they had Russell work in at second base while in the minors. The fantasy potential for this kid is high and owners should consider picking him up, in case he performs like everyone expects. He is going to take his bumps early, so don’t give up hope on the young star. Analysis: Colby Conway
Al Horford said he's good to go for game two.
Horford suffered a hand injury during the fourth quarter of Game 1 but was able to return and play the final six minutes but with his ring and pinky finger taped together. X-rays taken on the hand were negative but Horford expressed that he was in considerable pain. Given that it's playoff time there was little chance Horford would not be on the court for the Hawks Game 2 matchup against the Nets. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba
