Notes 
 Playoff P impressed in the postseason, leading the Clippers past the top-seeded Jazz without Kawhi Leonard. With Leonard expected to be out through at least the All-Star Break, expect PG13 to take on a high usage rate and contribute significantly across most categories. He's a borderline top-5 player who's going in the early-to-mid second round, making him quite a value. If you're drafting at the 1-2 turn, you're actually at an advantageous spot to be able to snag George and another elite player in one fell swoop.

Hayward's sprained right foot caused him to miss the final 25 games of the regular season, and health concerns still cloud his fantasy outlook. Since 2017-18, his games played are: 72, 52, and 44 respectively. When on the court, he came up big in his first season with the Hornets, averaging 19.6 points, 5.9 boards, 4.1 dimes, 1.9 triples, and 1.2 steals while shooting efficiently as usual. As long as he's healthy, he has obvious potential to post top-40 per-game numbers. Reports indicate he'll be ready to go for Charlotte's opener, but keep an eye on him ahead of drafts.
