Buddy Hield, Pacers
Coach Rick Carlisle hasn’t been shy about giving Hield as many minutes as he can handle, with the sharpshooter averaging 39.0 minutes in his first three appearances.
Andre Drummond, Nets
Drummond saw 24 minutes in his debut despite the rest of the Nets’ center rotation being healthy, as Nicolas Claxton was booted from the rotation and Blake Griffin saw just three minutes. He’s come off the bench and averaged 13.3 points on 11.7 shots, 3.7 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 1.0 steals in 28.0 minutes. In his past 11 games, he’s averaging 7.9 points on 27/24/72 shooting, 5.9 assists and 4.8 rebounds in 28.8 minutes.
