Pau Gasol (illness) was a full participant in practice on Monday.
The Lakers do not play till Tuesday, which gives added confidence that Gasol could be back in the lineup for the first time since leaving Sunday's game early with a case of vertigo. Should Gasol sit out then consider using Chris Kaman in your DFS contest(s). Kaman is averaging 14.8 points, 7.8 rebounds, and 2.8 assists in the four starts since Gasol has been out.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Teams have begun to eye Braves starting pitcher Shelby Miller.
What a shock. Suddenly teams are interested in a 24-year old who is 5-1 with a 1.33 ERA and 43:16 K:BB over 54.0 innings. Never saw that coming. The Braves did a nice job not only acquiring Miller, but also in developing him more. His use of a new cutter is increasing his ground ball rate and he is inducing a lot more weak contact. As a result, strikeouts are up, walks are down and Miller looks like a tremendous asset.Expect teams to make pitches for Miller, but don't expect the Braves to bite. Analysis: Howard Bender
