• Lauri Markkanen was a late scratch on Wednesday due to back spasms, opening the door for Nikola Mirotic to start at power forward.

    Markkanen was expected to play all day and this is a very last minute swerve. It’s good news for Mirotic, who can strut his stuff and should be picked up in all leagues. He never lost the starting job, and it’s not unreasonable to think that he could earn himself a nice chunk of minutes with more strong play in Markkanen’s absence. Both guys are standard league assets and should be able to coexist. The only thing that can hurt either (besides injuries) is a crazy rotation.
