Donatas Motiejunas scored 13 points on 4-of-9 shooting (0-for-3 3PTs, 5-of-6 FTs) with six rebounds, one assist and one steal in 21 minutes on Saturday against the Hawks.
Motiejunas had alternated good games with sub-10 minute performances so the fact he could back up his big line from Friday with over 20 minutes of action is a good sign. Unfortunately, his fantasy game has always needed a decent amount of minutes to support late-round value. He needs to turn it on quickly and take advantage of the Rockets’ upcoming four-game week to really help owners in 12-14 team formats. After that he gets a pair of three-game weeks and he’ll need to truly max out to be a factor in those formats.
