Panic Time On Porzingis?

Kristaps Porzingis was an absolute force (albeit briefly) when he was at his best in the NBA Bubble, putting up 30.5 ppg, 9.5 rpg, 2.2 apg, 0.8 spg, 1.5 bpg and 2.7 3s in the six games he played leading up to the playoffs.

But just as things were looking up for Kristaps, we're once again faced with some unsettling injury news, as the 25-year-old underwent surgery to repair a lateral meniscus tear in his right knee. 

Meanwhile, Doc Rivers has recently confirmed (via The Philadelphia Inquirer) what we already expected to be the case with Joel Embiid — that the Sixers center is likely headed for (more) load management in 2020-21.

On the latest episode of the Rotoworld Fantasy Basketball Podcast, Steve Alexander and I discuss our levels of concern when it comes to considering Porzingis and Embiid in fantasy leagues next season. Plus, how early should Jimmy Butler and Bam Adebayo go in fantasy drafts after their dominant/remarkable playoff runs?
