Notes 
 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 - BettingPros
I have my concerns about Zion Williamson, who carries a cumulative injury history. He has played only 85 games through his first three NBA seasons, yet signed a massive five-year contract extension. The last time we saw the 6-foot-6, 284 lb forward, he was posting 27 PPG and 7.2 RPG. However, with the development of Brandon Ingram, the addition of CJ McCollum, and his annual weight concerns, is that production we will never see again?
