Gorgui Dieng was all but invisible in Wednesday night’s season finale against the Rockets, totaling just six points with eight boards and two assists in 27 minutes.
Despite his disappointing night Dieng remains one of fantasy’s more underrated players. Over his 82 games he averaged 10 points, 7.9 boards, 1.9 assists, 1.1 steals and 1.2 blocks on stellar averages. Playing next to Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins doesn’t leave a player like Dieng with a lot of offensive opportunities, but his defensive contributions should again make him a mid round selection next season.
