Nemanja Bjelica was inserted into the Timberwolves’ starting lineup for Zach Lavine (knee). Like a ninja from the shadows, Bjelica stealthily came out of nowhere and turned in a 24 points, eight rebounds, 5-of-8 shooting from downtown, three steals and a block.
Owners who gambled on Bjelica tonight in DFS were very well rewarded with this production. While this performance is not out of the question for a player of his talent, this is more of an outlier than anything else. Deep league owners can give him a look for some short-term value, especially if you have a streaming slot or need to dump an underperforming asset. Be aware though, Bjelica can easily slip back into the shadows and fantasy basketball obscurity when Lavine returns to action.
