Patty Mills News
Upcoming free-agent guard Patty Mills remains undecided about his future in Brooklyn. He has a player option, which if exercised, would pay him $6.2 million in 2022-23. However, it appears his decision may be based on the future of Kyrie Irving, who reportedly caused moral issues in the locker room after refusing to receive a COVID-19 vaccine. While Mills wasn't a consistent fantasy presence, he averaged 13.1 points and shot 37.5% from behind the arc throughout 48 appearances in the starting lineup, so it seems the 33-year-old still has plenty of gas left in the tank. Nonetheless, it's hard to tell how impactful the veteran will be for fantasy managers this season, primarily since it's not known where he'll be playing. But there is still upside for those in deep formats, no matter where he ends up moving forward.
Brooklyn Nets guard Patty Mills will move into the starting five for Monday's game against the Toronto Raptors. All-Star guard Kyrie Irving will sit this one out like he does all home games due to his vaccination status. Mills will be joined by Seth Curry, Bruce Brown, James Johnson and Andre Drummond for Monday's game. He'll look to get out of a 0-for-12 shooting funk over the last two games. Mills should get plenty of minutes, but is a risky fantasy option given his recent struggles. Brown and Curry are much better streaming options for this contest.
Brooklyn Nets power forward Kevin Durant (rest) and point/shooting guard Patty Mills (rest) will be held out of Thursday's contest against the Thunder due to rest purposes. Durant, the league's leading scorer at 29.7 points per game, has been on a scoring tear as of late, having dropped at least 24 points in each of his last 17 outings. The absence of Mills marks his first of the year, paving the way for Cameron Thomas to see a larger role, and thereby higher DFS exposure. James Harden should garner enormous DFS appeal as well with Kyrie Irving (vaccination status) unavailable. Fantasy managers can anticipate Durant and Mills to return for Saturday's game vs. New Orleans.
Brooklyn Nets point/shooting guard Patty Mills has been elevated back into the starting lineup for Friday's contest vs. Milwaukee after a one-game stint on the bench with Kyrie Irving active for the team's road outing. David Duke Jr. will be sticking in the starting group as well, although he holds minimal fantasy intrigue when the Nets are at relative full health. Mills has scored in single figures in three of his last four games, a rare hiccup in production amidst what has been a career year for the veteran, who is on pace to set new career bests at 13.6 points per game. He will have a particularly advantageous matchup Friday, as the Bucks yield the second-most three-point buckets made by the opposition (14.3) on a nightly basis.
