Markkanen will immediately retake his starting power forward job, as expected. Nikola Mirotic should retain his fantasy value even off the bench and it’s worth watching to see how the minutes are split between the two. Bobby Portis should return to being an afterthought, as the strong play of Mark and Miro leaves little in the way of scraps for others to pick up minutes at the four. It’s worth checking back for an update right before game time, however, as Markkanen was scratched 10 minutes before tipoff last week.
