Ivan Rabb was tabbed to start at power forward on Wednesday and was able to deliver eight points, six rebounds and a block in 17 minutes of action.
It was the rookie’s first career start and he was an efficient 4-of-5 from the field. He’ll probably return to third on the depth chart when Memphis’ frontcourt gets back to full health, and tonight’s line doesn’t inspire much confidence for the short term. Deyonta Davis played 21 minutes and notched 12 points and five boards, and he makes for a more intriguing stash. That’ll only pay off if Memphis shuts down their veterans, so it’s not the greatest proposition in the world. The two youngsters are only worth monitoring in very deep leagues for now.
