Lauri Markkanen finishes with 13 points in loss Tuesday

Lauri Markkanen had 13 points, six rebounds, five assists, and one block in 36 minutes during Tuesday’s 110-106 loss to the Memphis Grizzlies.

Fantasy Impact

Markkanen has seen an increased workload with multiple injuries, and a COVID-19 outbreak hitting the Cavaliers but hasn’t done much with the additional opportunity. Coming into last night's game, Markkanen was averaging 11.4 points. 6.0 rebounds and 1.9 assists on 38.4 percent shooting with just 12.9 percent from behind the arc over his last seven games. He had an okay game on Tuesday night, but still, his overall performance of late is concerning. What’s even more notable is his downturn from the three-point range. Over the last eight games, Markkanen is a combined 5-of-36 from deep. Until he can shoot his way out of this slump, fantasy managers hopefully have other options to turn to for better production.
