The former UNC product is available in 5-60% of fantasy leagues. He was dropped in quite a bit of leagues due to his ankle injury that kept him out for nearly three weeks.
We also have to mention Taj Gibson of the Bulls. Gibson is averaging 8.6 RPG, 1.6 BPG and 12.2 PPG over his last five games. He’s logging 32 minutes of floor time per night in that span which will equate into some very solid fantasy numbers going forward.
