February 21 - March 7

Domantas Sabonis, Indiana Pacers: 14.3 PPG, 9.3 RPG, 2.7 APG through 59 games

Domas has been out since February 25th when he twisted his ankle late in the game against the Detroit Pistons. The Lithuanian has missed 4 straight games and won’t be expected back until Tuesday against the the New York Knicks. The Pacers will truly miss his contributions.

Next Game - Pacers @ 76ers on Sunday, March 12th @ 3:30 PM ET on ABC

Zach Collins, Portland Trail Blazers: 6.5 PPG, 4.1 RPG, 0.8 BPG through 61 games

Collins isn’t doing too much on the court as he is only averaging around 6 minutes per game in the last 7 contests. Off the court, his team is getting stuck in elevators. Not much room to move around in there I bet.

Next Game - Suns @ Trail Blazers on Saturday, March 9th @ 10:00 PM ET

Kelly Olynyk, Miami Heat: 10.2 PPG, 4.6 RPG, 1.8 APG through 61 games

Olynyk has seen an increase in his production with 6 straight games of scoring in double figures. He recently scored 22 points and grabbed 11 rebounds in a season-high 45 (Yes, 45!) minutes in the win over the Charlotte Hornets, 91-84. After the game, Olynyk said “I wasn’t even that tired”. The Heat are starting to pick it up down the home-stretch while riding a three-game winning streak.

Next Game - Cavaliers @ Heat on Friday, March 8th @ 8:00 PM ET

Johnathan Williams, Los Angeles Lakers: 3.9 PPG, 2.9 RPG through 8 games

Williams finally saw some NBA action. The last time he was on the court for the Los Angeles Lakers was December 30th against the Kings where he only played 4 minutes. Against the Denver Nuggets on Wednesday, JW3 played 15 minutes and scored an efficient 8 points on 3-4 shooting. Not to mention, Williams got to be apart of a special moment when LeBron James passed Michael Jordan for 4th on the all-time scoring list. That’s something the former Gonzaga Bulldog will never forget.

Next Game - Celtics @ Lakers on Saturday, March 9th @ 8:30 PM ET on ABC

See y’all in Vegas!
