Myles Turner Working Hard During Shutdown

Indiana Pacers center Myles Turner has been continuing basketball-related activities for about four or five weeks now. He built a makeshift gym in the family garage, so Turner has found a creative way to stay in shape. Turner was on fire before the NBA went on hiatus, so hopefully he can pick up where he left off. Victor Oladipo has decided to opt out of the upcoming NBA restart. That means Turner and Malcolm Brogdon will be asked to do more on the offensive side of the ball. Both players should see their fantasy value rise with Oladipo sitting out.

OG Anunoby Has Been Improving His Game

Toronto Raptors forward OG Anunoby has been working on his shooting, ball-handling and passing. It sounds like Anunoby wants to be a more versatility player on offense. The 22-year-old has seen his playing time rise to an average of 30.1 minutes per game this season. He's an important part of the Raptors rotation, so these improvements should boost his fantasy value. He probably won't be a great DFS option, but he could become a more popular choice if he enhances his game on the offensive side.

Ben Simmons Won't Have Any Restrictions

Philadelphia 76ers guard Ben Simmons (back) won't be restricted when the season resumes later this month, according to head coach Brett Brown. "Hes good to go and we look forward to watching him with what Im told is, effectively, 100% health," Brown said. He was dealing with a lower back nerve impingement, but the hiatus has given Simmons plenty of time to rest up. It sounds like Simmons will be back to his normal role of playing around 33-36 minutes per game.
