Cody Zeller wrapped up an injury-marred season by watching Tuesday's finale from the sidelines.
Zeller could only play in 33 games this season as he dealt with a variety of knee issues, undergoing surgery for a torn meniscus back in December that cost him nearly two months. Persistent knee soreness limited him further, as his last game of the year came on March 8th. He finished as a top-320 option on the full season with a slightly better 9-cat ranking (literally four spots) and was a top-250 guy on a per-game basis, with an identical ranking of 248th regardless of format. Zeller will now be pushed by Willy Hernangomez next year after the presence and performance of Dwight Howard already sapped his potential late-round appeal.
