The Blazers will go with a starting lineup of Damian Lillard, CJ McCollum, Carmelo Anthony, Zach Collins and Jusuf Nurkić on Friday vs. the Grizzlies.
It was unclear whether the Blazers would have Hassan Whiteside or Collins in the starting lineup for the resumption season. Collins will earn the starting nod in the first game, a game that is very important for the Blazers to win as they are looking to overtake the Grizzlies for the eighth and final seed in the West. Collins has yet to prove consistent value in standard leagues so it will be interesting for fantasy GMs to see how he performs in the resumption season ahead of the 2020-21 fantasy season. Whiteside's value will see a significant drop-off from the abbreviated first portion of the season with Nurk and Collins in the fold.
