Jazz's Jeff Withey: Double-double against Blazers
Withey tallied 10 points, 11 rebounds, one assist, two steals and two blocks in a preseason loss to the Blazers on Sunday. Withey has looked good this preseason, as he's regularly the biggest player on the floor. With very little frontcourt depth, Withey could be asked to play a bigger role this season and will likely be the backup center behind Rudy Gobert. If Gobert is to ever miss any time, Withey could become a sneaky add for fantasy.
