Addition: Bobby Portis – Milwaukee (Waivers)
One of our centers, Jusuf Nurkic (Portland), went on the injured reserve list after surgery on his right wrist. He is expected to miss at least six weeks, which opened up a spot in the lineup. In his place, we recruited Bobby Portis’s services, who brings over 350 fantasy points to the lineup.
