Denver Nuggets forward Keita Bates-Diop has reportedly arrived in Orlando on Thursday, per Kendra Andrews of The Athletic: Denver.
Per NBA guidelines, Bates-Diop must now quarantine for 48 hours before joining the Nuggets on the court. The 24-year old Ohio State product has spent much of his two-year NBA career in the G-league and is hardly a candidate to see any sort of impactful minutes for Denver during the NBA restart, outside of injuries. Only appearing in two games for the Nuggets before the season was suspended, Bates-Diop averaged 3.5 points in under 10 minutes a night. He is not a recommended fantasy option.
Keita Bates-Diop compiled 15 points (4-10 FG, 2-3 3PT, 5-5 FT), six rebounds, three assists, and one block across 17 minutes of play off the bench Wednesday.
Bates-Diop had his highest scoring output in over two weeks Wednesday night but he'll have to show a bit more consistency before he deserves consideration in most league formats.
Keita Bates-Diop scored 11 points, (5-9 FG, 1-4 3PT, 0-2), 8 rebounds, 1 steal, an assist, and a block during his 24 minutes of floor action against the Trail Blazers.
Bates-Diop scored 22 fantasy points against the Trail Blazers and is averaging 11 fantasy points per game on the season. He remains a fantasy free-agent type player until more fantasy production is provided for fantasy owners.
Keita Bates-Diop scored 15 points, (4-8 FG, 1-3 3PT, 6-7 FT), 7 rebounds, 2 steals, 2 blocks, and an assist to fill the box score during his 27 minutes of floor action off the bench against the Nets.
Bates-Diop scored 27 fantasy points in standard leagues against the Nets and is averaging 11 fantasy points per game on the season. With Andrew Wiggins out due to illness in the starting lineup, Bates-Diop and Kelan Martin will share the time in the small forward position.
