We have nine games on the schedule in the NBA for Wednesday night. If you haven’t been following the news much, there are a TON of injuries to note. The Toronto Raptors keep dropping like flies, the latest to go down being Fred VanVleet (hamstring), who is expected to miss extended time. Toronto remains without Pascal Siakam, Marc Gasol and Norman Powell as well.

The Miami Heat will get Jimmy Butler and likely Justise Winslow back in the lineup, however the Indiana Pacers could be without big man Domantas Sabonis, who is dealing with a knee injury and is questionable.

Kemba Walker is questionable for the Boston Celtics vs. the San Antonio Spurs. Walker has been sidelined due to an illness that has been going around in Boston (I don’t have it). Bradley Beal is also questionable for the Washington Wizards, Wendell Carter Jr. is out for the Chicago Bulls and Draymond Green will be back for the Golden State Warriors, while D’Angelo Russell remains out.

Okay, that was a lot. Now, let’s take a look at the opening spreads on DK Sportsbook:
