DeAndre Ayton comes off the bench to play 27 minutes Thursday vs. Portland

DeAndre Ayton was benched to start the game Thursday vs. Portland but he still played 27 minutes as a reserve. Ayton managed 11 points and eight rebounds off the bench.

Fantasy Impact:

There were reports just before tip that Ayton wouldn't start because he was feeling under the weather but that wasn't the case as Ayton entered only a few minutes into the game and was still a key part of the rotation. It's unclear why Ayton was relegated to the bench, but he appears fine physically so we would expect him to resume his starting role Friday vs. the Heat.
