Okeke posted 20 points (8-15 FG, 4-11 3Pt), seven rebounds, four assists, two blocks and three steals over 34 minutes during Thursday's 128-101 loss to Charlotte. Okeke assembled an impressive and versatile performance. Shooting just 31.5 percent from beyond the arc this season, his 38.9 percent average from his career at Auburn hasn't yet translated to NBA efficiency. However, Okeke has merit as a rebounder and defender in addition to his potential three-point prowess. The 23-year-old remains under team control until 2024.
Okeke put up 11 points (3-9 FG, 3-7 3PT, 2-2 FT), nine rebounds, two assists, two steals and one block in Tuesday's 120-115 win over Cleveland. Okeke was one rebound shy of notching his fourth double-double of the season. While he was able to rack up rebounds, the Auburn product's numbers in that category have been less than stellar. The second-year forward has had 9-plus rebounds in just three of his last 18 contests.
Okeke is starting Wednesday's game against the Wizards. Okeke will start for the third time in the last four games with Wendell Carter (wrist) unavailable. Across his last three appearances, Okeke has averaged 10.7 points and 4.7 rebounds in 31.3 minutes per game.
Okeke will come off the bench during Monday's contest against the Cavaliers. With Wendell Carter (wrist) returning from a two-game absence, Okeke will revert to his usual bench role. As a reserve this season, the third-year big man has averaged 8.2 points, 4.5 rebounds, 1.7 assists and 1.1 steals in 23.0 minutes per game.
Okeke is starting Saturday's game against the Kings. Okeke will join the starting lineup for a second straight game since Wendell Carter (wrist) remains out. Okeke totaled 19 points, five rebounds and a block in 35 minutes during Wednesday's loss to the Thunder.
