Will Barton scored 20 points on 7-of-16 shooting (including two threes) with six rebounds, three assists, two steals and two blocks in Wednesday’s blowout loss to the Rockets.
Barton has been a top-80 fantasy play already this season and he’ll have no problem stepping into the vacuum created by Paul Millsap’s injury. He’s also a career 77.7 percent shooter from the line and is hitting just 68.5 percent this season, so that along with the increased opportunity should offset any other regressions at a minimum. He can climb a bit higher if things go right.
