Terrence Jones hit just 2-of-9 shots for seven points, eight rebounds, two steals and zero blocks in 28 minutes and a start on Tuesday.
He's been highly disappointing this preseason, but at least he started and got the minutes tonight. We still think the starting job is his on opening night, but we have cooled a bit on him. He's struggled thus far and Kevin McHale seems to like Donatas Motiejunas a little too much. But for now, Jones still looks like the starter, and could immediately start playing better once the games count.
Perry Jones came off the bench again on Tuesday and hit 6-of-13 shots and two 3-pointers for 20 points, four rebounds and an assist.
He's still battling for the starting SF job in the absence of Kevin Durant (broken foot), but it's also possible that Anthony Morrow has won the job. Either way, Jones should get a lot of run off the bench and is worth a late look in most fantasy leagues, along with Morrow.
Anthony Morrow started at small forward on Tuesday and hit 4-of-8 shots and two 3-pointers for 11 points, five rebounds and one assist in 24 minutes.
Morrow isn't guaranteed a starting gig just yet, but he could be heading in that direction if Scott Brooks gives up on the Andre Roberson experiment, or if Morrow has beaten out Perry Jones to start at SF. Morrow has had a fun preseason, scoring in double figures in all six games and hitting 13 3-pointers. If you need threes late in your draft, he's worth a grab.
Russell Westbrook hit 6-of-16 shots for 14 points, five rebounds, 11 assists and two steals in 27 minutes on Tuesday.
He hasn't really blown up offensively yet, but the games haven't counted yet, either. He's going to be a monster as long as his knees hold up, and could lead the league in scoring with Kevin Durant sidelined indefinitely.
Steven Adams made another start on Tuesday and had nine points, eight rebounds and two blocks in a loss to Utah.
Adams has had a nice preseason and looks like the starting center for the Thunder. Don't jump on him too early, but he's worth a late pick in all formats given his potential for minutes and his strong preseason play.
Trey Burke hit 9-of-16 shots and three more 3-pointers for 23 points, three rebounds, five assists and a steal on Tuesday.
He's now hit 16-of-30 3-pointers in the preseason, and has made Dante Exum an afterthought. Once the big-named point guards are off the board, Burke looks like he's primed and ready to go this season.
Alec Burks hit 2-of-9 shots, 11-of-13 free throws and missed all four of his 3-point attempts in Tuesday's win over the Thunder.
He finished with 15 points, six rebounds and three steals, and despite the poor shooting, he's going to get a lot of minutes and should be a valuable fantasy shooting guard to own.
Enes Kanter hit 12-of-17 shots and two 3-pointers for 27 points, seven rebounds and a block in 29 minutes on Tuesday.
Kanter is starting to play well and the talk of him shooting threes this season may not be a joke. Yes, Rudy Gobert is on his tail, but Kanter looks like a lock to be the starting power forward on opening night and beyond for the Jazz. Gobert played 21 minutes and had five points, six rebounds and three blocks off the bench.
