Pratt’s Play of the Day (November 22)

Bobby Portis

It’s been hot and cold for Portis as a starter in Brook Lopez’s absence, but he’s trending in the right direction after scoring 41+ DKFP in back-to-back games. The 6’10 big man is averaging a career-high 14.9 points along with 8.2 rebounds per contest this season. Portis has been successful stretching the floor as well, hitting 41.5% of his attempts from deep. At $7,200, there’s plenty of upside for him against a Magic team that ranks 27th in DKFP allowed to big men.
