Wendell Carter Jr. recorded 17 efficient points (7-9 FG, 3-4 FT), six rebounds, two steals, and one assist over 27 minutes in Tuesday's 108-103 win over the Cavaliers.
Six games into a return from an ankle injury that sidelined him for nearly two months and Carter Jr. finally cracked double digits. His rebound total was low, but banging in the paint with Andre Drummond is no easy task. Carter Jr. has been pretty quiet since the injury, averaging just 8.5 points, 6.5 rebounds, 1.2 assists, 0.5 blocks, and 0.5 steals. He has a much easier matchup than what he has faced over the last few games on Thursday. He should return to his double-double form against the Magic.
