Jayson Tatum broke out in a massive way this season: 23.6 ppg, 7.1 rpg, 2.9 apg, 0.9 spg, 1.4 bpg and 2.8 3s, good for 12th overall in 9-category leagues for the 22-year-old. 

On the latest episode of the Rotoworld Fantasy Basketball Podcast, Steve Alexander joins me to discuss Tatum's phenomenal production, as well as the strange news (via Jay King of The Athletic) that Tatum hasn't picked up a basketball in over a month. 

Also on this episode: the Kings' odd experiment with Bogdan Bogdanovic and Buddy Hield, some thoughts on the NBA's televised H-O-R-S-E competition, and the latest on the Knicks' coaching search potentially turning up the name Tom Thibodeau.
