Jahlil Okafor scored five points on 2-of-7 shooting with 13 rebounds, one steal and one block in 25 minutes off the bench in Tuesday’s blowout loss to the Knicks.
Okafor went for 21 & 6 in 24 minutes against the Wolves on Saturday and that makes two decent games in a row. It looks like Tyler Zeller is out of the rotation and that means both he and tonight’s starter Jarrett Allen (12 points, four rebounds, no steals or blocks, 20 minutes) could split the center minutes going forward. We like Allen over Okafor because of his stat set potential and outside of 16-team leagues it makes sense to wait-and-see if Okafor can do it again. Allen is worth a look as a speculative add in 14-team formats.
