    The power of Giannis, Milwaukee opened as 11 point favorites, now they’re favored by 7. I feel like this is going to be one of those 400 point type of nights, there’s so much value and a ton of mid-range guys that could go for 40-50.

    Anyone else having trouble with the new crowns feature on DK? Accidentally reserved my entries with crowns instead of my DK $. Withdrew my entries but never got my crowns back.

    I did that too, they don’t give you the crowns back, they refund you in dk dollars.

    Something I’ve noticed with Myles Turner being out, yeah Sabonis/O’Quinn are plug and plays, but opposing centers have been feasting the last two games w/Turner out. Just something to keep in mind, I don’t think paying up for Drummond makes a ton of sense but it could be a spot where he’ll be low owned.

    Edit: Also, Cousins outright admitted he’s been horrible on the pick and roll. Walker and Zeller are probably one of the better pick and roll duos in the league. This might be a Zeller smash spot, who knows.

    If you haven’t already, maybe try refreshing, or closing the page and reopening. If that doesn’t work, and I’m just guessing here, maybe wait a little while and try again. If you don’t have the crowns back or th DK dollars within 24 hours, just reach out to DK support.

    Side note….awesome feature, using the crowns directly. What a pain in the arse it was having to go to the DK shop…huge improvement. 👍

    Yeah, I like the new feature. Just wasn’t ready for it, I hit reserve using my crowns on accident, didn’t realize it until it was too late. Hopefully I get them back.

    If Doncic sits again tonight I’ll be locking in Dwight Powell on Yahoo. His usage has been way up last 2 games with 12 and 13 FGA and this is a much softer matchup. The 1st time these 2 teams met he put up 21.4 FP in 16:27, roughly 1.3 FPPM, and that was with the squad before they tore it down. Presuming he sees ~26 minutes tonight, I think he’s in line for a big game.

    What are DK dollars? You mean your account balance? Or are DK dollars separate…like money you can’t withdraw yet can only use to enter games? If so, how do I see if I have any…haha?

  • NDNole

    Going to focus on the smaller slates and showdowns til I get the hang of NBA. Makes me want to watch the games more anyway.

    He’s fine with or without Don Cheech

    I believe the account balance.

    Update: They added $5 to my account balance. Kinda stinks, because I could have won more than $5 with those crowns but I also could have not made any money with them. Kind of like a tie ball game….be careful with those reserved entries guys.

    Are they automatically applying your crowns when you register now?

    There’s two options. Reserve with $, reserve with crowns, if that’s what you’re asking.

    I don’t watch basketball too often. I don’t own a TV. The Heat are rarely on game of the week anyhow. Watching basketball doesn’t necessarily help with fantasy does it? What matters most is the game plan and none of us have that. Thanks for answering though down below. Can anyone tell how many minutes he will get tonight? 35 would be nice and 22 is nothing special.

    Out of curiosity…why wouldn’t you just use crowns the crowns to enter, instead of your account balance? There’s no benefit to entering with actual dollars over crowns. Using crowns counts towards achievements.

    Also the way clrockny24 responded to your question, it sounded like DK dollars were something separate from your account balance, which is why I asked the question. Maybe ask him what he meant by DK dollars 🤷‍♂️

    Edit….I see ur problem has been solved

    Honestly I’m not sure. I just like to stash them, then use them if I ever start struggling for a period of time. I probably should use them more often because they aren’t doing any good just sitting there. Side note: I can’t wait to get that 25,000 crown achievement, probably stash it until next NBA season.

    Ah OK, thanks. I was thinking they were doing what they do with tickets where if you have a ticket they just auto apply the ticket. I have a bunch of crowns that I’m saving (for some reason that I’m not even sure of) so just wanted to make sure they didn’t start doing the same with crowns.
