F - UTH
Lauri Markkanen poured in 25 points (8-14 FG, 4-8 3PT, 5-6 FT), 11 rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in 32 minutes of Monday's 120-102 win over the Hornets.
Markkanen continued his stat-stuffing tendencies on Monday, tallying his fifth straight double-double. On top of this, the big man is averaging 29.4 points per game in January thanks in part to an impressive 41.9% clip from beyond the arc. If he can continue to get it done from deep, Markkanen should be viewed as one of the elite big men in fantasy going forward.
