Mehmet Okur Back in Action

Utah Jazz big man Mehmet Okur returned to action following his recovery from a torn Achilles and a recent ankle injury. He came off the bench to play 17 minutes and contributed 6 points and 5 rebounds.

The Breakdown
Memo should continue coming off the bench and will likely see his minutes rise into the 25 minute range after a few games. Okur has the potential to produce top 100 caliber stats, so he's worth a speculative addition in most formats. Our only concern is whether he'll see enough minutes behind Al Jefferson and Paul Millsap to become a reliable player in standard-sized leagues. He's a solid source of points and rebounds along with being one of the rare big men who can help a team in the three-pointer department. Okur is available in about 90% of leagues.
