Marquese Chriss said that he was indeed out of shape before the season began.
“I let myself get to a place where I shouldn’t have been,” said Chriss, who declined to say how much weight he gained. “I think it happens to a lot of people.

We continue to call him a must-own player given his stat set and upside.
