Update: Meyers Leonard (shoulder strain) is expected to miss at least Sunday’s Summer League game against the Houston Rockets.
Leonard, who was hurt by his own teammate Joel Freeland, will have to wait a couple games before getting another opportunity to attempt to prove himself worthy of having been selected 11th overall by the Blazers in the 2012 Draft after just two years at the University of Illinois. While many fans are willing to give up on Leonard already, dynasty league owners need to realize that even if healthy the kid was/will take a few years to flash his potential, especially after the team had signed Robin Lopez prior to the start of last season. Regardless, Leonard does not project to be a starting center in the NBA, but could be a valuable asset off the bench, which is not what fantasy owners nor fans want or expect from a lottery pick but will have to learn to expect it seems.
