David Nwaba will play in Thursday’s LA D-fenders playoff opener in the D-league.
Nwaba is averaging 26 minutes of playing over the last five games and has looked the part as a pro with solid defense along with rebounding and steals production. He has proven himself as a bench rotation piece in the NBA but hasn’t given fantasy owners much to be excited about. He may miss a game or two for the Lakers while he plays in the D-league playoffs so look for more minutes to go to Larry Nance Jr., Corey Brewer and even Metta World Peace with only Nance being a viable fantasy option. The fact that MWP may crack 20 minutes in a game in 2017 shows you just what a sad state the Lakers are in.
