Kelly Olynyk – Miami Heat

(8.7 PPG, 4.7 RPG, 0.7 APG in 22 MPG)

While Miami has won the past three games, they were mediocre performances for Olynyk. Only scoring three points against Cleveland, he had no assists in that game and none against New Orleans. That’s not to say its been all bad – he scored 13 against the Pelicans along with having three steals.

Domantas Sabonis – Indiana Pacers

(15 PPG, 15 RPG, 2.7 APG in 32 MPG)

Two loses and a win for the Pacers, but it’s not like Domas didn’t contribute. He had a double-double in all three games, which included 18 points and 13 rebounds against Houston. The Lithuanian helped demolish the Nets in Monday’s game with 16 points, 18 rebounds and two blocks. In addition, the big guy put up two three pointers against the Bucks.

Rui Hachimura – Washington Wizards

(9.7 PPG, 5 RPG, 2.3 APG in 26 MPG)

Rui’s opponents are starting to figure him out and have found ways to slow him down – he only shot 4-10 against Minnesota and 3-7 against Orlando. However, he did seem to find a way to break out a bit against the Spurs, throwing down 15 points and grabbing seven rebounds against them. Since opposing teams have realized that they need to pay great attention to him, it is/will force Hachimura to develop other aspects of his game.

Brandon Clarke – Memphis Grizzlies

(15.3 PPG, 4.7 RPG, 1.3 APG in 23 MPG)

Clarke continues to make a strong statement coming off the bench for the Grizzlies. In the loss against Denver, he scored 19 points, grabbed five boards, went 8-8 shooting and sank 2-2 three pointers. Against the Warriors, he contributed 17 points and had one block and one steal.

Zach Norvell Jr. – Los Angeles Lakers

Norvell was added to the Lakers’ roster for their game against Sacramento but did not play.

Nigel Williams-Goss – Utah Jazz

On Tuesday, Nigel was recalled from the Salt Lake City Stars to practice with the Jazz. After practice, he was sent back to Salt Lake City.

Zach Collins - Portland Trailblazers
