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?
#2WayPlayer Johnathan Williams (@Iam_J3) was EVERYWHERE for the @SouthBayLakers on Thursday night, totaling 18 PTS, 11 REB, 3 AST & 3 BLK @ZagMBB ↗️ @SouthBayLakers ↔️ @Lakers pic.twitter.com/78KSCNsxTh— NBA G League (@nbagleague) December 14, 2018
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.
