FREE NBA DFS Projections – DraftKings & FanDuel – Tuesday Day Main Slates – 12/26

NBA DFS Projections

The projections below are created from our custom NBA model for DraftKings and FanDuel. Projections will be updated for any injury/inactive news that breaks prior to lock as best as possible. In the future, we plan to provide player rates “if starting” for ease of adjustment in the absence of timely updates.

Notes will be provided between updates as time allows, long-term absences in the OUT section will only be updated for relevant changes, and players who have been out for extended periods will not be listed every day until there is news of their return, which will be highlighted. Bold text in the “Update Notes” line will be the most recent reporting, if the status line next to the time stamp is red and says “pending” the update to include the bold text news is in the works; if it says “updated” in green, all of the news has been accounted for in the current projections.

Last updated: 9:10 pm ET – 12/26/23 – updated
