Portland has really disappointed so far this year, and now their questionable depth is about to get exposed. Filling Nurkic’s shoes will be a committee job with Meyers Leonard and Ed Davis getting a bulk of the work. Davis is a fine rebounding specialist for deep league purposes. If Harkless misses time, Noah Vonleh should assume his starting job. Any way you slice it, Al-Farouq is probably the biggest winner here thanks to more minutes and touches. He needs to be picked up wherever he’s available.
