Lonzo Ball ended the night with five points on 2-of-11 shooting, but did manage to chip in with seven assists, three rebounds, one steal and one three in Sunday’s win over the Cavaliers.
Ball has been relatively inconsistent since returning from a knee injury which kept him sidelined for roughly a month. His struggles form the field are well documented at this point, but he still manages to chip in across the board even when his shot isn’t falling. Ball can decimate your field goal percentage category, but still has a strong chance to finish as a top-75 player this year regardless given his strong counting stat contributions. He nearly evenly split minutes at the one with Isaiah Thomas (31 minutes, 20 points, nine assists, five rebounds, two triples) which may cap his ceiling, but both players need to be owned despite the timeshare. Thomas hasn’t been able to put it together yet this season, but if he can break out of this extended shooting slump and get his shooting above the 40 percent mark he can return mid-round value for owners.
