Notes 
 Porzingis had a strong showing in his first season with Dallas, averaging 20.4 points and a career-high 9.5 rebounds per game with his new team. He and MVP candidate Luka Doncic combine for one of the most productive fantasy duos in the NBA. Unfortunately, Porzingis has missed significant time with injuries every season of his career and will be out until at least January this season as he recovers from offseason surgery to repair a knee injury he suffered during the Mav's first playoff game in the bubble.
Aaron Larson - FantasyPros
JJJ is going to be out "a minute" according to Grizzlies executive vice president of basketball operations Zach Kleiman, but that shouldn't stop you from giving the rising star big man a look in your upcoming fantasy drafts. So long as your league has an IR roster spot, you can stash Jackson Jr. and have a valuable asset come the middle of the 2020-21 season. In 57 games a season ago, JJJ averaged 17.4 points, 4.6 rebounds, 1.4 assists, 1.6 blocks, and 2.5 3PM in just under 29 minutes per game. The 3-pointers are an added bonus for a guy that is eligible at the center position, but the lack of rebounds is a bit of a concern. Additionally, Jackson Jr. has had trouble with staying on the court due to foul trouble in his first two NBA seasons. If he can stay out of foul trouble and play over 30 minutes per game, we could see JJJ increase his averages even more in his third-year in the league. Consider him a top-75 player this season, but realize he may not contribute for your squad right away as he recovers from offseason knee surgery.
