Starting for the injured Nerlens Noel, Taj Gibson finished Wednesday's win over the Pelicans with eight points (4-of-5 FGs), 10 rebounds, two assists and three blocks in 35 minutes.
With Noel (sore right ankle) being scratched just before tipoff, Gibson was tabbed to start for the first time since March 27. And he did his job, tallying 10 rebounds and three blocks for the second straight game. Gibson's fantasy value isn't high when Noel is healthy enough to play, but he offers some deep-league appeal as a rebounder and rim protector. Rostered in just 4% of Yahoo leagues, Gibson sits just outside of the top-50 in 9-cat over the last two weeks. Apr 14 10:31 pm (EST)
