Oh Summer League doesn't mean anything? Donovan Mitchell supporters like myself would like a word. Anyway, lots of pickups with a lot of injuries.

 

Kelly Olynyk - He'd be the add I'd make if I'm looking to fill in while Whiteside is out.

 

Ersan Ilyasova - Small-ball Ilya was out there and they'll need him with all these injuries. Please be OK, John Collins.

 

Kenneth Faried - Please be OK, Jokic.

 

Mason Plumlee - May start next game, but hopefully Jokic won't be out long.

 

Bam Adebayo - Whiteside is out for 1-2 weeks.

 

DeAndre Bembry - 21 minutes and defended LeBron a lot. Still not playing well... yet.

 

Alec Burks - Mad props to anyone who used him in DFS or as a stream. I cut my man Norm Powell to use him tonight in a league, so glad it worked out.

 

Montrezl Harrell - Could have value until Gallinari gets back.

 

Sam Dekker - Ditto.

 

Trey Lyles - Should be playing every night until Jokic is back.

 

Jerryd Bayless- Not much to see here and maybe T.J. McConnell is back Saturday.
