What Happened Between LeBron and Olynyk?

December 6 - December 14

Domantas Sabonis, Indiana Pacers: 14.1 PPG, 9.6 RPG, 3.1 APG through 26 games

Sabonis continues to be a dependable scorer of the bench. He is ranked #4 in the league for field goal percentage at .630%. He stands behind Montrezl Harrell (.638%), Clint Capela (.649%), and Rudy Gobert (.682%).

Next Game - Pacers @ 76ers on Friday, December 14th @ 7:30 PM ET on ESPN

Zach Collins, Portland Trail Blazers: 7.4 PPG, 4.2 RPG, 0.9 BPG through 28 games

Collins had his best performance in over a month when he scored 10 points, grabbed 5 rebounds, and added 1 block in a win over the Suns, 108-86. Time for Collins to make his way out of this sophomore slump. Remember when were talking about his DPOY chances?

Next Game - Raptors @ Trail Blazers on Friday, December 14th @ 10:00 PM ET

Kelly Olynyk, Miami Heat: 9.7 PPG, 4.3 RPG through 26 games

Olynyk probably wouldn’t make a good dodgeball player when he took a fastball from LeBron James right to the gut. I would have been out for a month if that had happened to me. Other than that, Olynyk’s numbers are starting to rise as he is averaging 14.1 points and 6.7 rebounds in the last 7 games.

Next Game - Heat @ Grizzlies on Friday, December 14th @ 8 PM ET

Johnathan Williams, South Bay Lakers: 18.8 PPG, 9.3 RPG, 1.5 BPG through 15 games

JW3 is averaging 20 points and 10 rebounds in his last 7 games with South Bay. He is also shooting a staggering 54.3% from the field while averaging almost 16 shots per contest. Very consistent. When are the Los Angeles Lakers going to give him the call?

Kyle Dranginis (Gladiators Trier, German Pro A): 0 PPG, 5 RPG through 1 game (All the information I could find on him)

Przemek Karnowski (Twarde Pierniki Torun, Polish TBL): 8.1 PPG, 3.8 RPG through 8 games

Unfortunately for everyone’s favorite Polish guy, Przemek recently had surgery to repair his achilles tendon and will be out for about 5 weeks.
