Jahlil Okafor and Nicolo Melli will start against the Thunder on Saturday.
Okafor was expected to start when Favors was announced as out with knee soreness earlier today, but Alvin Gentry choosing to move Ingram back to SF to start Melli at PF is a new wrinkle in this puzzling rotation. It's a questionable choice given that OKC runs most of their offense through Danilo Gallinari, who will likely give Melli fits tonight. Regardless, feel free to stream Okafor tonight against uneven defender and former teammate Nerlens Noel. There is significant DFS value to be had tonight on both injury-riddled squads.
