Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk News
Oklahoma City Thunder guard Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk will enter the starting five with Luguentz Dort (shoulder) sidelined Wednesday. Mykhailiuk should be headed for 25-plus minutes against the Warriors, a workload that has yielded double-figure scoring efforts from the 23-year-old each time this season. Golden State allows the 13th-most points per game to shooting guards, so Mykhailiuk makes for an interesting DFS play on Wednesday night, given his three-and-D ability.
Oklahoma City Thunder shooting guardSviatoslav Mykhailiuk had a season-high 22 points in Wednesday's 113-103 win over Toronto with 10 of them coming in the fourth quarter. It was a great shooting performance by the 23-year old guard in 36 minutes as a starter, as he finished 9-for-14 from the field and 4-for-8 from downtown. Mykhailiuk also led the team in blocks with two swatted efforts and came one rebound short of posting a double-double. With Shai Gilgeous-Alexander (foot) ruled out for at least two weeks, the Thunder are desperate for scorers, and Mykhailiuk certainly fits the bill. He gets a very good matchup on Saturday against Portland but has to maneuver his way past the Suns first on Friday. Phoenix owns the sixth-most efficient defense in the league this season.
Detroit Pistons shooting guard/small forward Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk will draw his first start of the year Tuesday against Orlando. Mykhailiuk has averaged 19 minutes and 6.8 points off the bench over his last five games, earning the move up the depth chart without Wayne Ellington (rest) available. Having averaged 11.2 PPG across 27 starts last season, Mykhailiuk will garner DFS punt play intrigue with some sizable upside due to his long range shooting abilities. Barring him earning a full-time starting gig, he can remain on the waiver wire in all season-long formats.
Detroit Pistons guards Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk (hip) and Derrick Rose (hip) will be active for Wednesday's game against the Orlando Magic. Mykhailiuk has missed each of the last five games due to a right hip issue. He'll likely be under a minutes limit his first game back, so Mykhailiuk won't be the best fantasy option here. Rose should be monitored as well, so fantasy owners are likely going to want to stay away from the Detroit guards. Bruce Brown Jr. and Langston Galloway should see less minutes going forward.
