Bulls rookie Patrick Williams posted a dud of a stat line on Sunday (five points and five rebounds in 23 minutes), but the 19-year-old had been on a nice run of late, with 12.3 ppg, 5.7 rpg, 2.0 spg, 0.7 bpg and 1.7 3s in 35 minutes a game over his previous three games (including a strong game on Friday with Lauri Markkanen and Otto Porter both playing). 

Meanwhile, in Cleveland, the guy drafted directly after Williams — No. 5 overall pick Isaac Okoro — has been getting a ton of playing time as well, putting up 12.0 ppg, 2.3 rpg, 2.7 apg, 2.3 spg, 0.7 bpg and 1.7 3s in 39 minutes a game over his last three.

On the latest episode of the Rotoworld Fantasy Basketball Podcast, Steve Alexander joins me to discuss what to expect from Williams, Okoro, Cole Anthony, Immanuel Quickley and a number of other options, including Gary Trent Jr. with CJ McCollum sidelined.
