Dragan Bender was held to just four points on 2-of-5 shooting in Tuesday’s loss to Spain at EuroBasket.
It’s a bit disappointing that one of Croatia’s youngest and most talented players was limited to just five shots in 19 minutes. He added two blocks but this will do nothing to assuage the fears that he’s becoming a forgotten man in Phoenix. The Suns are pretty stocked in the frontcourt and on the wings, meaning Bender will have to put some serious work in at camp to carve out a worthwhile role. He’s not worth drafting in fantasy leagues, and dynasty owners might be starting to fret.
