Brandon Clarke Ruled Out Saturday
Brandon Clarke will miss his second straight game when the Memphis Grizzlies take on the Milwaukee Bucks Saturday night. Clarke has been ruled out with right hip soreness, as per the Grizzlies PR account.
Clarke plays the fifth-most minutes among Grizzlies players and is also fifth in team scoring. Dillon Brooks and Xavier Tillman played average minutes on Friday night, but Killian Tillie had an increased role. Tillie played a season-high 22:51 on Friday and chipped in with six points and three rebounds. We should expect increased usage from Tillie again on Saturday, but his fantasy ceiling remains limited. Tillie has a $3,500 salary on the late-slate at FanDuel.
Tillman is the most cost-effective option of the three players. He carries a $3,500 salary and averages 16.5 FanDuel Fantasy Points per game, and he’s gone above his average output in three of his last five games. Brooks has a $5,000 salary and had his best fantasy output over his last 14 games Friday night.
The Grizz and Bucks have a total of 237.5, with Memphis listed as +8 on the spread at FanDuel Sportsbook.
