Capela totaled 17 points (7-11 FG), 13 rebounds and three blocks in a 104-82 win over the Memphis Grizzlies on Saturday.
This marks Capela's 11th double-double of the season, as he continues to provide fantasy owners with what they wanted when they drafted him. What's quietly been a nice surprise is his free-throw shooting, as Capela is setting a career-high with a 64 percent free-throw percentage. He's also providing nearly two blocks a game, as his value should only rise with Chris Paul back in the lineup.
Capela scored 12 points (6-11 FG, 0-3 FT), to go along with 10 rebounds, two assists and two blocks in 21 minutes Thursday in Houston's win over Phoenix.
Capela has made the leap from being a mobile big man with a lot of potential to being a bonafide difference maker for the perimeter-heavy Rockets. He is the ideal big man for coach Mike D'Antoni's system that is predicated on speed and spacing. The paint is left without much clutter for Capela to deal with, a result of Houston's extensive collection of shooters. Capela leads the league in field-goal percentage at 68.4 for all players that have attempted at least 60 shots. He checks in behind only Detroit's Andre Drummond (221) and New Orleans' DeMarcus Cousins (205) in total rebounds with 182. He has the opportunity to develop alongside James Harden, and his fantasy ceiling will continue to rise.
Capela scored 20 points (9-12 FG, 2-3 FT) while adding 17 rebounds, an assist and a block in 32 minutes during Sunday's 118-95 win over the Pacers.
Indiana's frontcourt had no answer for the 23-year-old's length and athleticism, and James Harden had a double-double by halftime largely as a result of feeding Capela for dunks and easy buckets. While his scoring remains somewhat inconsistent in an offense geared towards the perimeter, Capela has grabbed double-digit boards in nine of 14 games so far this season, putting him on pace to shatter his previous career high in that category.
Capela posted 18 points (7-9 FG, 5-9 FT), 13 rebounds, four blocked shots and an assist across 31 minutes in Thursday's 117-113 win over the Cavaliers.
Any early-season doubters of Capela have fallen by the wayside. The 23-year-old is the real deal. Thursday marked his seventh double-double in the first twelve games of the season, which puts him near the top among centers in that category. His four blocked shots prove he's not just a scorer and rebounder, as he's put out balanced stat lines every night. Most of the league's big men specialize in boards or blocks, but Capela could be one of the safest bets in fantasy due to steady production in every category.
Capela recorded 12 points (6-10 FG), 13 rebounds, two assists, a steal and three blocked shots across 28 minutes in Wednesday's 119-97 win over the Knicks.
Capela was targeted to have a breakout year by many NBA pundits, and so far it seems that prediction is panning out, as he's averaging a double-double (13.3 points and 11.4 rebounds) over the first nine games of the season. Capela and the Rockets stifled Kristaps Porzingis the entire game, holding him to a season-low score. Capela should have another productive night in Atlanta on Friday, where he'll face a more inexperienced Dewayne Dedmon in the paint.
