Marvin Bagley scored 13 points on 4-of-8 shooting (5-of-8 FTs) with six rebounds, one assist and zero steals or blocks in 22 minutes off the bench in Wednesday's win over the Grizzlies.
Bagley has struggled on defense this season but was coming off a five-block game, which is a great example of how blocks don't necessarily equal good defense. Unless teams target him more and that leads to abnormal block numbers, this probably won't be an overwhelming strength of his fantasy value. He needs big points and boards numbers to truly float the inconsistencies, but the Kings want to play him and Dave Joerger probably won't be overly restrictive as he has been with other young players.
