Markkanen scored 33 points (10-22 FG, 8-15 3Pt, 5-5 FT) while adding 10 rebounds, two steals, an assist and a block in 46 minutes during Wednesday's 122-119 double-overtime win over the Knicks.
While the 20-year-old set new career highs in points and made three-pointers, it was his thunderous dunk over Enes Kanter in the third quarter after taking the ball nearly the length of the court that proved to be the biggest highlight of the night for the rookie. Markkanen's now scored in double digits in nine straight games, averaging an impressive 19.3 points, 7.8 boards and 3.6 threes over that stretch.
Markkanen had 16 points (6-9 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 1-1 FT), nine rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block in 32 minutes during Friday's 127-124 victory over the Mavericks.
Markkanen had another solid outing, backing up his double-double from Wednesday. The were some concerns he would take a hit upon Nikola Mirotic's return, however, Markkanen has now scored in double figures in six straight games while also averaging almost eight rebounds and three three-pointers over the same stretch of games. His minutes have declined slightly but he still seeing about to 30 per game and putting up nice production. There is still talk of Mirotic being traded at some point which would boost Markkanen's value, but he should be owned no matter what.
Markkanen scored 22 points (9-17 FG, 2-8 3Pt, 2-2 FT) while adding 12 rebounds, an assist and a steal in 32 minutes during Wednesday's 124-115 loss to the Raptors.
It's the rookie's eighth double-double of the season but first in nearly a month. Markkanen's been amazingly inconsistent since returning from a back issue that cost him three starts in December, scoring between three and 32 points over his last 10 games, but his averages during that stretch (15.5 points, 6.3 boards, 2.1 three-pointers) have given him some value in fantasy formats that can weather his wild swings in production.
Markkanen totaled 32 points (11-17 FG, 5-9 3Pt, 5-5 FT), seven rebounds and one assist across 28 minutes in Friday's 119-107 win over the Pacers.
The point total was a career best for the rookie, who also paced all scorers on the night. Markkanen has seen his scoring go through some ups and downs recently due to some ragged shooting nights, but Friday's effort marked his second tally of 64.7 percent from the field in the last five games. The 20-year-old also equaled a career high with five made three-pointers, and he's averaging 15.0 points, 6.0 rebounds and 1.1 assists over 12 December contests heading into the final game of the month Sunday against the Wizards.
Markkanen tallied 25 points (11-17 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), two rebounds, two assists and one steal in 30 minutes during Thursday's 115-112 loss to the Cavaliers.
Markkanen had his best game since returning from a back injury that cost him three games. It has taken him a few games to work back to where he was prior to the injury, and this game was a demonstration of what he capable of doing on a nightly basis. His role is not as clear as it was, with the return to the lineup of Nikola Mirotic, but he should still hold value in most league formats and should be owned.
