Suspended and Shortened Games (US)


DraftKings uses official statistics from each respective sport league’s governing associations and only includes statistics from games the association deems to be official. If a game is declared “suspended” then the statistics generated before the game is suspended will count in Pick Groups containing said game. Any statistics generated on a later date when the game resumes will not be included.

In the event that a game is suspended due to an injury or other “Force Majeure” type instance, determined at the sole discretion of DraftKings, and the games does NOT continue by 11:59 PM ET on the day after the last scheduled game within the Pick Group, the following will apply:

If the Pick Group involves two or more games

  •  All stats accrued up until the time of stoppage will count towards the grading of picks.

If the game is part of a single-game set

  • If the suspension occurs in the first half of the game, the Pick Group will be refunded.
  • If the suspension occurs at halftime, or in the second half of the game, the Pick Group will be paid out as scored at the time of suspension.
