Trey Lyles played 22 minutes off the bench on Sunday night, going 2-of-8 from the field for six points, four rebounds, three assists and three steals.
There was preseason talk of Lyles playing some small forward but he was behind both Juancho Hernangomez and Torrey Craig in terms of playing time tonight. He does seem like the best fantasy bet in the absence of Will Barton, and his slow start to the year means he may be on some waiver wires. We saw what an on-track Lyles looks like last season, so proactive owners might want to get in on the action before he gets it going with Barton's indefinite absence giving him plenty of opportunity to do so.
