James Harden will not play in the Brooklyn Nets matchup with the Washington Wizards Sunday.
Harden appeared on the injury report Saturday with a bruised thigh, originally listed as questionable.
Expect Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving to see an increase in usage due to Harden’s absence. Durant is priced at $10,600 on FanDuel, and Irving is $9,300 on FanDuel. The duo accounts for a combined 58.5% usage rate when Harden is off the court this season.
Bruce Brown should also start for the Nets in place of Harden. Playing in 17 games this season, he has averaged 16 minutes, scoring six points, four rebounds and one assist. Brown is priced at $4,200 on FanDuel.
The Nets are a 6.5-point favorite against the Washington Wizards on FanDuel Sportsbook, a game with the highest total of the day at 244.5.
