• Terry Stotts still hasn’t decided who will start in place of the suspended C.J. McCollum in the opener but mentioned Shabazz Napier, Evan Turner and Pat Connaughton as his choices.

    McCollum will miss game one after he was suspended (it was a silly one) for leaving the bench during an altercation in a preseason game. While Turner is the most talented of the bunch, we’re not sure if Stotts would want to pluck a leader out of his second unit. Napier was the backup point guard last year but it’s been mentioned that he’ll see time at the two this year. Connaughton was infrequently used and is a longshot, but would probably get the nod if Portland opts to go for the path of least disruption in their regular rotations. Turner is the only one who would really be worth watching in fantasy.
