Chuma Okeke News
Orlando Magic power forward Chuma Okeke produced a team-high 18 points on 7-for-12 shooting in Monday's loss to the Lakers, adding five rebounds to his line with two assists and two steals. He had a second consecutive strong outing from downtown, going 3-for-5 with the three-ball. Okeke is pretty inconsistent, but he's getting plenty of burn and contributes well in multiple categories. The 22-year-old will have a meeting with the Cavs next. Power forwards have posted solid numbers in the matchup this season with 21.8 points and 10.8 rebounds per 48 minutes.
Orlando Magic guard Gary Harris (rest) and Chuma Okeke (hip) are suiting up for Wednesday's contest against the Bulls. Harris returns after a one-game absence due to rest, meaning Dwayne Bacon will go back to a bench role. Okeke is dealing with a hip ailment and will be on a minutes' restriction once again- knocking some shine off of his potential DFS value.
Orlando Magic power forward/center Chuma Okeke (hip) has been given the green light to play Monday against the Spurs, but he'll do so under a minutes restriction. Okeke has excelled since rejoining the starting five over the past eight games, averaging 13.9 points and 5.9 boards per contest in that span, while shooting 48.4 percent. With the Magic in the throes of a full rebuild over the final month, Okeke is arguably their most enticing season-long and DFS commodity, although the latter format is likely more adversely affected by his playing time cap.
Orlando Magic forward Chuma Okeke put together another solid all-around effort in a 119-109 loss to the Nuggets Sunday. Okeke tallied 19 points, seven rebounds, five assists, two three-pointers, a pair of steals, and a blocked shot in a season-high 39 minutes. The 22-year-old is getting all the minutes he can handle in Orlando's new-look frontcourt- as he's averaging 32.8 per contest since the trade of Aaron Gordon. Okeke has scored 14-plus points in six of his last seven contests, along with a variety of different defensive statistics to boot. He'll get a Wednesday matchup against the Wizards, who have been a strong defensive team against power forwards this year. Still, Okeke has proven himself as a trustworthy option over the last several games.
