Marcin Gortat has been in a prolonged slump since the All-Star break and has seen his minutes drop.
Gortat has seen his minutes drop to only 23 minutes per game in March and has been averaging a pedestrian 7 points and 8 rebounds while his efficiency has suffered as well. “He definitely needs to play better but we’ve got some options,” Coach Scott Brooks said. The Polish Hammer is not helping fantasy owners in the playoffs and it won’t get any easier with the Jazz and the Warriors next up on the schedule. He is a drop candidate for a guy like Richaun Holmes if hes still available. Look for Markieff Morris, Jason Smith and Ian Mahinmi to pick up some extra minutes while Gortat loses some minutes.
