Jakob Poeltl will start at center in Wednesday's season-opener.
Poeltl gets the nod over Pau Gasol despite being outplayed in the preseason. He's a nice late-round center who should provide solid output in blocks and rebounds, though certain matchups and game flow may still favor Gasol. Both players should be able to survive on the standard league radar. Poeltl gets a stiff first test with Karl-Anthony Towns in the building.
