Sabonis produced 14 points (5-9 FG, 4-7 FT), eight rebounds, one steal and one block across 20 minutes in Tuesday's 131-97 win over the Suns. Despite moving back to the bench with the return of Myles Turner, Sabonis still flirted with a double-double in more limited minutes. The return should hinder his ceiling going forward, but Sabonis provides a nice floor for points and rebounds off the bench.
Sabonis will come off the bench Tuesday against the Suns. With Myles Turner (shoulder) back in the starting five, Sabonis will return to his usual role off the bench. In that role, the big man has averaged 14.7 points, 9.4 rebounds and 2.8 assists across 24.6 minutes.
Sabonis supplied 22 points (9-14 FG, 4-4 FT), 15 rebounds, and three assists in 32 minutes during Friday's 121-106 win over the Knicks. Sabonis was spectacular while drawing his third straight start in place of Myles Turner (shoulder). Surprisingly, this is the only double-double he managed during these last three games, but his incredible offensive efficiency has not abandoned him. Moreover, he has scored at least 20 points in four of the last six games.
Sabonis scored 20 points (6-9 FG, 8-8 FT) and collected seven rebounds along with five assists over 27 minutes Wednesday against Boston. Sabonis was impressive from the field in a blowout loss, shooting 66.7 percent from the floor and going a perfect 8-for-8 from the charity stripe. With Myles Turner (shoulder) out yet again, Sabonis once again benefitted and drew the start. Even when Turner returns to action, Sabonis has been putting up impressive numbers off the bench, warranting some fantasy attention.
Sabonis tallied 15 points (7-13 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-2 FT), nine rebounds, four assists and three steals across 34 minutes Tuesday against Cleveland. Sabonis didn't post an eye-popping scoring line, but what he lacks in scoring he certainly makes up for in other areas. He came within just one rebound of a third straight double-double and also added assists and steals to his total. Sabonis drew his second straight start with Myles Turner (shoulder) still on the shelf, but he may move back to the bench if Turner is cleared to play Wednesday in Boston.
