Notes 
 Sabonis made huge strides in his fourth NBA season and saw big gains in nearly every statistical category. He averaged a solid double-double with 18.5 points and 12.4 rebounds per game. His 50 double-doubles on the season trailed only Giannis Antetokounmpo (56) and Hassaan Whiteside (51). That kind of consistency can help carry a fantasy roster through the long grind that is the NBA season.
Aaron Larson - FantasyPros
After suffering a horrific leg injury in March of 2019, Nurkic didn't get back on the court until the summer of 2020 in the NBA bubble. When he did finally return he was better than ever, averaging 17.6 points and 10.3 rebounds per game in eight regular-season games. It wasn't much different in the playoffs, where he averaged a double-double in five games against the Lakers. He could be primed for a breakout season with the Blazers in the upcoming season.
