Batum is shootin

Nikola Mirotic and Tristan Thompson are back. Jahlil Okafor and Joe Johnson could be next. And that's just the start of another eventful week in the NBA. Here's a list of the most fantasy-relevant news and notes for all 30 teams around the league: Atlanta www.lemontlaur.fr Hawks: On the right Nike Air Presto Femme fantasy team, Kent Bazemore can be a terrific fit. Any team that is punting shooting percentage but looking for a shooting guard or small forward who makes 3-pointers, dishes out Nike Air Huarache Womens assists and racks up steals should strongly consider making a move for the Hawks' swingman. In 27 games this season, Bazemore is averaging 12.4 points, 4.6 rebounds, 3.6 assists and 1.9 steals per game Boston Celtics: Jaylen Brown is quietly second on the Celtics in scoring with 15 points per game, and on top of that, he is a nice secondary contributor on the glass, grabbing 5.8 rebounds per game. Brown's fantasy value takes a hit in category leagues, however, because he is not much of a distributor (1.3 assists per game) and a surprisingly poor free throw shooter (61 percent). NBA reporters fantasy Adidas NMD Dames Q&A: Will Thunder trade PG? Might Hayward return this season? ESPN NBA reporters give their inside fantasy takes on whether Paul George or Brook Lopez might be traded; a possible return for Gordon Hayward; and playing time expectations for Jahlil Okafor, Patrick McCaw and Dennis Nike Air Max 90 Womens Pink Smith Jr. Fantasy hoops: Has Jokic plateaued? Nikola Jokic (No. 15 on the Player Rater) is having a good season, but has he reached peak fantasy value? Brooklyn Nets: Keep an eye on Jahlil Okafor. Entering Thursday's game against New York, the former lottery pick has yet to appear in the three games the Nets have played since the trade, but don't be surprised if he sees a lot of minutes once the Nets give him the green light. In 105 career games, Okafor Nike Air Presto Femme has averaged 14.6 points, 5.9 rebounds and 1.1 blocks while shooting 51 percent. If he ends up playing close to 30 minutes a game for the Nets, we could see all of those numbers rise this season. Charlotte Hornets: At this point, it's safe to say Nicolas Batum is no longer an efficient offensive player like he once was in his days with Portland. Batum is shooting an icy 37.7 percent in six games this month after making only 40.3 percent of his shots last season, 42.6 percent Adidas Superstar Femme the year before that and 40 percent in his final season with Portland. That's not a lot of good stuff to say about a guy on his birthday, but as Batum www.asdthanit.it turns 29 on Thursday, it's increasingly clear that this area of his game isn't improving. Chicago Bulls: Nikola Mirotic wasted no time making his presence felt after returning to the Bulls last week. In four games, he averaged 19.5 PPG, 5.8 RPG and 3 3PG. These are the categories where he can help, and on a thin Bulls team that could need him to play 32-35 minutes a night, he could also average close to 1.0 SPG as Nike Air Max 90 Mens well. Mirotic probably tops out around No. 60 as far as the player ranks go for season-long roto leagues, but his impressive start means he could reach Nike Air Max 90 Heren that ceiling soon. Cleveland Cavaliers: Tristan Thompson returned to the court for Tuesday's game against Atlanta, but he managed only six minutes. While Thompson will likely work his way back onto the fantasy radar at some point, he's probably better left on the waiver wire for the time being until he gets back Nike Air Max 90 Femme in playing shape. Even when Thompson is at 100 percent, he is mostly just a rebound specialist in regards to fantasy.
