Marcin Gortat played 40 minutes in a loss to the Rockets on Monday, finishing with 13 points (6-of-10 from the field, 1-of-2 at the line), 14 boards, three assists, one steal and four turnovers.
The four turnovers weren’t a welcome sight, but Gortat otherwise had a decent night out. He’s been playing a ton of minutes, which could be alarming for injury concerns. His minutes have jumped from 30.1 to 35.8 minutes per game compared to last season, but that hasn’t translated to improved value. He was returning top-40 value last season and this year, he sits at top-60 value due to a significant dip in free throw shooting (61.3%).
