While it was hardly a dominant performance, Adebayo did record his fifth double-double of the season, and first in over a month, in his sixth start. Hassan Whiteside only missed this game due to an illness, however, and once he's 100 percent Adebayo will return to a bench role.

Adebayo played the entire fourth quarter Tuesday, scoring 11 of his 13 points in an impressive final period. He played more minutes than Hassan Whiteside (12 points, 11 rebounds, three blocks), continuing to push for more regular playing time. Over the past two weeks, Adebayo is the 103rd ranked player as opposed to Whiteside who is the 142nd ranked player. There is no indication Adebayo is going to usurp Whiteside in the starting lineup but he is trending in the right direction and is worth rostering in standard formats.
