Jahlil Okafor picked up 19 minutes off the bench and turned in 13 points, six rebounds and two blocks in Wednesday’s loss to the Grizzlies.
Okafor did some nice work, including shooting 5-of-6 from the field. Big Jah could give you low-end big man numbers in the right spot but is buried in Philadelphia. He was able to get some extra work in with both Joel Embiid and Dario Saric out of the frontcourt mix tonight but was tellingly left on the bench while Richaun Holmes entered the starting five. He’s not a recommended fantasy target despite the draft pedigree and potential for popcorn lines.
