Carmelo Anthony had a rough outing against the Heat on Sunday, totaling 11 points (3-of-11 FG), three assists and two rebounds over 37 minutes.
It was disappointing to see Anthony was unable to take advantage of CJ McCollum's (illness) absence. He's still a standard league hold, but the Blazers have other options that could cut into his playing time if Anthony were to enter an extended slump. For instance, Anfernee Simons put together 19 points, four rebounds, four assists and two 3-pointers. Simons is still more of a deep league project but clearly has the potential to be more than that if the Blazers were to give up on the season.
