Hamidou Diallo had a nice stat line in the Thunder's scrimmage vs. the Blazers on Tuesday, finishing with 16 points, five rebounds, three steals and a 3-pointer in 21 minutes of action.
Diallo has struggled with injuries over the last calendar year but has been solidly in the Thunder rotation when healthy. He's going to have to hit threes with more consistency than has thus far in 2019-20 (just 20 percent from deep in 18 minutes per game) to be a factor in seeding games or into the playoffs for his team. The Thunder's first seeding game is on Saturday (vs. the Jazz) and it will be interesting to see how coach Billy Donovan decides to use Diallo from the outset. He has the ability to be a little more than just an option off the bench with his athleticism and flair for the dramatic.
