Jabari Parker SF MIL 4 Hrs
Parker scored 18 points (7-19 FG, 0-3 3P, 4-4 FT) with nine rebounds in 33 minutes during Wednesday's preseason loss to the Timberwolves.
The young forward seems likely to be the main offensive option on a rebuilding Bucks squad, so while his defensive performance and advanced stats might leave something to be desired this season Parker's fantasy numbers should still be plenty useful.
Giannis Antetokounmpo SF MIL 4 Hrs
Antetokounmpo scored just one point, missing all seven of his field goal attempts (including four misses from three-point range) and committing eight turnovers, while adding five rebounds, four steals, three assists and three blocks in 25 minutes during Wednesday's preseason loss to the Timberwolves.
The defensive stats were as amazing as the offensive performance was cringe-worthy. For all his talent and all-world ceiling Antetokounmpo, who doesn't turn 20 until December, still has a lot of rough edges to his game and a lot of maturing to do before he'll be a reliable fantasy contributor.
Shabazz Muhammad SG/SF MIN 4 Hrs
Muhammad scored 19 points (6-13 FG, 1-2 3P, 6-8 FT) with five rebounds, three assists, two steals and a block in 33 minutes during Wednesday's preseason win over the Bucks.
Andrew Wiggins (back) got the night off, and Muhammad took full advantage of his opportunity in the starting lineup. The second year wing likely won't see big minutes when the regular season begins, but if injuries open up some time for Muhammad he could provide surprising fantasy value.
Quincy Acy F NY 4 Hrs
Acy did not play in Wednesday's preseason game due to a sore right wrist, The Wall Street Journal reports.
Acy started four games for the Knicks during the preseason, but he was unable to go Wednesday night. He will have a week to rest and recover until the Knicks kick off the regular season next Wednesday against the Bulls.
Gorgui Dieng C MIN 4 Hrs
Dieng scored 14 points (5-7 FG, 4-4 FT) with five rebounds, four blocks and two assists in 29 minutes off the bench during Wednesday's preseason win over the Bucks.
His minutes, and fantasy value, will likely be limited in the regular season as long as Nik Pekovic stays healthy, but Dieng's ability to swat shots makes him a very intriguing late round option.
Nikola Pekovic C MIN 4 Hrs
Pekovic scored 15 points (6-11 FG, 3-3 FT) with 13 rebounds in just 19 minutes during Wednesday's preseason win over the Bucks.
The T-wolves wanted to get a longer look at Gorgui Dieng off the bench, but Pekovic didn't seem to have much left to prove in this one anyway. He doesn't block many shots and has trouble staying healthy, but Pekovic's other production makes him a strong mid-round front court option at the draft table.
Lucas Noguiera C ATL 4 Hrs
Nogueira (groin) made his preseason debut Wednesday, scoring eight points (2-2 FG, 4-4 FT) with two rebounds and two blocks in 11 minutes off the bench.
The young center isn't expected to see much court time during the regular season, but the tools are clearly there for Nogueira to develop into an effective rim protector down the road.
Carmelo Anthony F NY 5 Hrs
Anthony scored 30 points (11-19 FG, 2-6 3P, 6-6 FT) with three rebounds, three assists and three steals in 34 minutes during Wednesday's preseason win over the Wizards.
He seems to be adapting nicely to coach Derek Fisher's triangle offense. Look for Anthony to once again be among the NBA scoring leaders despite (or perhaps because of) the relative lack of talent around him on the Knicks' roster.
Otto Porter SF WAS 5 Hrs
Porter scored 22 points (9-15 FG, 4-7 3P) with three steals and two rebounds in 31 minutes during Wednesday's preseason loss to the Knicks.
He started once again at small forward, and Porter thrived as the perimeter complement to John Wall. After barely playing last season as a rookie, Porter seems poised to have a big start to his sophomore campaign, at least until Bradley Beal returns from his wrist injury.
John Wall PG WAS 5 Hrs
Wall (knee) scored 29 points (10-16 FG, 2-4 3P, 7-8 FT) with seven assists and four steals in 33 minutes during Wednesday's preseason loss to the Knicks.
It seems safe to say that the knee tendinitis that kept him out of action on Monday won't be an issue when the regular season tips off. Even without Bradley Beal riding shotgun for him to kick off the campaign, Wall remains one of the best fantasy point guards on the board.
