• Jahlil Okafor
    C, New Orleans Pelicans

    Jahlil Okafor feasted in a start on Sunday against the Kings, playing 35 minutes and scoring 23 points (10-of-14 shooting) to go with 14 rebounds, two blocks and a 3-pointer.

    Okafor took full advantage of Anthony Davis and Julius Randle sitting out, and he also played more than both Christian Wood (14 & 7 with a block and two threes in 24 minutes) and Cheick Diallo (8 & 11 with a steal in 29 minutes), which isn't a given even when he's started in the past. We'd still prefer to see Wood and Diallo get more minutes here but if Randle sits again then Okafor is definitely on the board.
