What should you expect from a healthy Paul Millsap?

Every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, we pose a question to a panel of ESPN fantasy basketball experts to gauge their thoughts on a hot topic.

Today’s contributors are ESPN Fantasy’s Joe Kaiser, Jim McCormick, André Snellings and Kyle Soppe.

Paul Millsap returned from his wrist injury on Tuesday, tallying 9 points, 7 boards, 2 dimes, 1 steal and 2 blocks in 23 minutes. What are your expectations for the 33-year-old veteran for the rest of this season?

Clippers: Rivers made light of the previous meeting, saying: “We’ve kind of barricaded all the secret passageways. … We’re going to build a wall. And I’m not paying for it, Houston is going to pay for it.” … F Danilo Gallinari missed his third consecutive game with a bruised right hand. … G C.J. Williams was recalled from the G League. He last played with the Clippers on Jan. 10. Tyrone Wallace went back down.

Kyle Soppe: I think Booker still has room to grow as an NBA player, especially in terms of better shot selection and being more aggressive. However, in terms of fantasy numbers? This is as good as it gets.

The 2017-2018 Phoenix Suns are the perfect storm for a bucket getter. They possess a bottom-five defense and play at a top-five pace, which leads to the team routinely playing catch up. With all of those stars aligned, Booker’s usage rate is in the LeBron James/Kyrie Irving tier — a level of involvement that raises both his floor and ceiling to heights that will be hard to match in the future.

Jim McCormick: Millsap’s usage rate during those first 16 games with the Nuggets was 24.2 percent, while his usage rate during his final two seasons in Atlanta was 24.3 percent. His rebounding rate with Denver, however mediocre for a power forward, is right in line with last season.

I think Millsap’s first 16 games with Denver before getting injured offer a Cheap Knock Off Jerseys good bit of clarity for what to expect going forward; he averaged 13.1 shots and 11.9 rebounding chances (within 3.5 feet of an available rebound) in nearly 31 MPG and converted these opportunity Cheap Jerseys Zoom rates into 16.0 PPG, 6.2 RPG, 1.1 SPG, 1.3 BPG and 1.3 3PG. Solid, if unspectacular.

LeBron James tops the list of the 10 most-followed NBA players on Instagram

Indeed, some of your favorite NBA stars are ordinary people like you and I. They love social media and interacting with other people. When players step on the hardwood to captivate fans with their tantalizing skill sets and eye-popping athleticism, they want you to marvel at their craft and give you your money’s worth.

But when those players step away from the court, they carry on with their lives. A lot of them have families of their own, friends, and other hobbies and interests away from basketball. Athletes have different social media platforms like Twitter, Facebook, and Snapchat. However, a lot of players love giving you a glimpse of their personal lives through Instagram. So, let’s see which players have the best Instagram pages in the entire NBA.

“[Bellinger] is just very humble,” said lefty Alex Wood. “There are a lot of comparisons to Clayton, in terms of their personalities. He’s very down to earth, very humble. Just takes things a day at a time and expects a lot out of himself.”

That calm humility comes in stark contrast to the persona of the next-generation Lakers, led by their former superstar Johnson. The team’s pre-draft flirtation with Ball, whose father, LaVar, allowed his son to work out for the Lakers and only the Lakers, flowed seamlessly into a summer of dreaming of Ball forming a big three with superstars LeBron James and Paul George in free agency next year.

The Dodgers don’t have player with his own $495 shoe, a dad who screams about his son to anyone who will listen, or a reality show following his family … and that’s just the way they like it. Bellinger will never be that guy, instead likely making headlines Cheap Knock Off Jerseys only for his on-field play and Cheap Jordan Jerseys For Sale lack of knowledge about 1990s sitcom stars.

NBA to implement plan to improve officiating

In an effort led by new president of league operations Byron Spruell, the NBA will introduce several measures designed to improve officiating. The initiatives, first reported by USA Today, will be formally announced Thursday.

Dempsey (a retired general and former chair of the Joint Chiefs of Staff); and former U.S. Education Secretary Arne Duncan.

“My family and I appreciate the prayers and well-wishes for my recovery. I had an unfortunate incident with a minor brain hemorrhage which means I’ll be in rehabilitation for a while. But I’m excited about trying to get past this speed bump. I’m improving every day.”

It’s unclear when the hemorrhage happened, but Robinson reportedly has been in the hospital for a week, according to OregonLive.com.

Robinson was drafted by the Blazers in 1989 and remained in Portland until 1997. During his time with the Trail Blazers, he was voted the NBA Sixth Man of the Year in 1993.

From 1997 until his retirement in 2007, Robinson played for the Suns, Pistons, Warriors and Nets.

He recently made headlines after he announced his support of recreational marijuana, and the Blazer who did an NBA playoff victory dance he dubbed “the Uncle Cliffy” now goes by the Cheap Kids Jerseys nickname “Uncle Spliffy.”
