Saric got poked in the eye at practice and his absence would open up a boatload of minutes in the rotation. Fours like Amir Johnson and Richaun Holmes (hopefully) would get their share of minutes while a guy like Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot would get extra run when Saric shifts over to the wing. As for McConnell, he seems optimistic on suiting up tonight after missing three straight. He’ll take some time away from Jerryd Bayless if that comes to pass and makes for a better fantasy option than the veteran.
Update: Dario Saric (eye) has been ruled out for Thursday’s game against the Lakers. T.J. McConnell (shoulder) will play and Jerryd Bayless will move into the starting lineup.
