DEN vs SAS Dream11 Prediction, Fantasy Basketball Tips, Starting Five, Team Details, 23 October


What a start to the NBA season! Curry has already launched the gauntlet with a 45 points performance, LaMelo Ball has shown he is the future, and there is much more in the store. To add to the heroics, In this match, the Nikola Jokic-led Denver Nuggets meet a rebuilding San Antonio Spurs. More about DEN vs SAS Dream11 such as injury report, stats, and projected fantasy points will be given here.

DEN vs SAS Dream11 Prediction

Nuggets come off a strong outing versus Suns, piling up a second-half comeback. In that game, Nikola Jokic showed the world, why he is the MVP and Will Barton made a case for being included in the Fantasy lineup. Nuggets as a whole present terrific balance although a lack of substantial PG option can hurt them a bit till Jamal Murray returns. Meanwhile, Michael Porter Jr. will look to build on his exploits from last season.

San Antonio Spurs is clearly in a rebuilding mode. The team shipped off DeMar DeRozan, parted ways with long-term member Patty Mills and this is the new Spurs era. Is there promise in the team? Yes, quite a lot. DeJounte Murray is an all-around threat, Devin Vassell has shown talent, and Keldon Johnson can make this team his own. How will the youngsters respond to the flurry of minutes? They did win the last game but will it be a 50%+ win season? There can be a doubt cast over that.
