Notes 
 Another player whose per-game output is great, but the injuries derail him. I don't mind the fit in Washington, but it's something we have to see play out with the complementary pieces first.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
He's essentially a one-category stud who does enough in the other areas to warrant a top-50 pick. This is likely the year he gets dealt.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 Kristaps Porzingis is one of the most talented players in the NBA and is still only 27 years old. He has also been crippled by injuries, failing to play more than 51 games in three of the past four NBA seasons. He remains a quality fantasy option with guard Bradley Beal, who should return fully healthy next season as well. In 17 games with Washington, Porzingis averaged 22.1 PPG, 8.8 RPG, 2.9 APG, and 2.2 steals/blocks per game. The 7-foot-3 center also shot 36.7% 3P on 4.6 attempts. Intriguing upside with Porzingis in Washington, now entering his seventh NBA season.
Mike Randle - FTN
The 6-foot-11, 250 lb center is one of the best shot blockers the NBA, averaging over 3.0 blocks during the past two seasons. The most concerning trend for Myles Turners is his games played per season has dropped in four consectutive years. Turner played only 42 games in 2021-2022, after a stress reaction from a January 14th injury ended his season. He is a limited scorer, averaging about 12 PPG in each of the past three seasons, and is a poor rebounder (6.7 RPG career) for a player of his size. Based on his non-scoring production, Turner needs to average about 15 PPG to return decent fantasy value.
