Jahlil Okafor listed as starter on Thursday vs. the Blazers.
Okafor missed the last two games with his bothersome knee but will return as the starter. He is likely healthy enough for his full allotment of minutes or else he wouldn’t be cleared to return by the tanking Sixers. Look for him to play around 25 minutes as usual but with his hollow fantasy skill set, he is only a decent option in 14-team leagues or deeper. Richaun Holmes will head back to the bench but should keep his playing time at around 25 minutes as well so this isn’t much of a downgrade for him. For the record, we like Holmes’ chances to make a fantasy impact more than Okafor’s.
