BALLER MOVE: Add In 14+ Team Leagues
OWNED IN: 1% of leagues
ANALYSIS: Is Shaquille Harrison the ultimate Cinderella story of the season? Could be the case, if you ask me. I know, it's only been four games starting for the Bulls lately and another four at the end of November, but there is that. And it is not that Shaq doesn't know how to take advantage of those moments, either.
So far, Harrison has started eight games and in those, he has averaged 10 points, 3 rebounds, and under 3 dimes. Not so good right? Well, if we go by minutes instead of just "starts", in the games Shaq has played 20+ rounds of the clock he's posted up a much better 14-4-3-2-1 line while shooting an impressive 49.7% from the floor on more than nine attempts. He's done all that while keeping a rather unimpressive 18.3% usage rate on offense, so he's indeed making the most of his chances.
Harrison's current run--which saw him complete his best game of the year on Mar. 6 against Indiana with a 25-4-4-3-2 performance--is tightly tied to Zach LaVine's return. Once the true-starter comes back Shaq will undoubtedly fade back to a reserve role, but until that happens (might be another week) if you play in a deeper league and have to fill a spot then Harrison has been super-hot lately and could make for a more than cheap addition with great upside attached to him at least for the next few days.
