The Warriors have hired Zaza Pachulia as a consultant. The 35 year-old big man spent 16 seasons in the NBA, mostly with Atlanta, and was able to win two rings with Golden State.
Zaza was a dependable fantasy asset back in his first two years with Atlanta, where he had averaged roughly 12 points and 7.5 rebounds per contest, prior to the arrival of Al Horford. He was a serviceable position rebounder and shot a career average 75% from the free throw line.
Zaza Pachulia scored 11 points on 4-of-6 shooting, with three rebounds, one assist, and one block in 13 minutes in Sunday's 110-107 win over the Raptors.
This is Pachulia's first double-digit scoring effort all season. He will continue to serve as the backup center behind Andre Drummond, and has little to no fantasy value.
Zaza Pachulia (achilles) will not be available for the Pistons on Wednesday against the Wolves.
Thon Maker should soak up all the extra minutes and if Andre Drummond gets into foul trouble, the youngster could have a very big game.
Zaza Pachulia pulled down eight rebounds in 19 minutes off the bench on Monday against the Nuggets. He added four points, two assists, and two blocks during the 129-103 win.
The Pistons bench played really well on Monday which led to an extended run for players such as Pachulia. He does have eight rebounds in back-to-back games but his lack of scoring should keep him off of the fantasy radar.
Zaza Pachulia scored eight points going 3-of-6 from the floor while adding 10 rebounds, one assist, one steal, and a block in 31 minutes against the Pelicans.
Zaza filled in nicely for the injured Andre Drummond (concussion) posting a near double-double. With Drummond likely returning Friday, Zaza will return to the bench where he provides little to no fantasy value.
