Nicolo Melli tallied 10 points (4-of-5 FGs), six rebounds, one assist, three blocks and two 3-pointers in 18 minutes Friday vs. the Wizards.
Melli had been struggling mightily with his shot heading into Friday’s game, as he was a combined 5-of-21 form the field in the four games prior. The rookie forward found his groove against the Wizards, as in addition to shooting 4-of-5 from the field he also contributed six boards and three blocks on the defensive end. However Melli’s fantasy value will take a hit on Sunday, as Zion Williamson (rest) is expected to be in the lineup after sitting out the second game of a back-to-back. Aug 07 10:35 pm (EST)
