Marquese Chriss reminded us all of his upside in Friday’s loss, shooting 7-of-11 against the Cavs and finishing with 19 points, 10 rebounds, three assists, one steal, one 3-pointer and two blocks in a season-high 35 minutes of action.
Let’s be clear — you can’t possibly feel good about running with Chriss right now given his propensity for vanishing this season. It’s a tough call to make, with few waiver wire options possessing even a sliver of Chriss’ fantasy potential, and he does have three straight games in double digits. Two of those were 10-point outings but you’ve got to take what you can get here. This was the first double-double for Chriss since January 31st his first game over 30 minutes since January 5th. If he’s going to play this much, you pretty much have to treat him as a surefire add. It’s a big gamble, but one that could pay off in spades. Hope you’re feeling lucky.
