Notes 
 SGA appeared in just 35 games and finished last season in March due to a plantar fascia tear. With OKC's season already in the toilet and the team in full-tank mode, it wasn't surprising to see him held out in a precautionary move. The young guard took another leap forward in his third season, averaging career highs in points (23.7), assists (5.9) and threes (2.0) to go with 4.7 boards while shooting high percentages from the field and the charity stripe. He agreed to a five-year max extension in the offseason and is on track to be ready for the start of the season. His status is one to monitor, but he's still locked in as an early-round selection in fantasy drafts.
Zachary Hanshew - FantasyPros
Perhaps no player exemplifies consistent elite play more than Spida, as he's averaged at least 20/4/4 with 2.4 triples and 1.0 steal in every one of his four NBA seasons. He averaged career highs in scoring (26.4) and assists (5.2) last season and will look to keep the forward momentum going in 21-22.
