Player Analysis

8/31 - Bobby Portis

8/12 - Justise Winslow

Winslow was a highly touted draft asset that fell into Miami's lap at No. 10, but the fact that he slid down the board may impact his production in Year 1. The Heat are very much contenders in the East and will be better served trying to make a push with veterans Luol Deng and Dwyane Wade on the perimeter than developing a rook. Still, in the event of an injury, Winslow has an NBA-ready body and big game experience.Justise Winslow profile page

8/12 - Frank Kaminsky

Every year there's a highly decorated NCAA product that finds his way into the NBA lottery. If Kaminsky is to fare any better than his predecessors, he'll need to prove that he's more than just a seven-footer with range and that he can stand alone as a serviceable 4/5 at this level. On top of that, the Hornets have an established core and playoff aspirations, so don't expect him to play big minutes out of the gates.Frank Kaminsky profile page

8/12 - Stanley Johnson

Johnson has an NBA-ready body and will get every opportunity to prove that he can be Detroit's small forward of the future, but don't expect him to fill the stat sheet right away. The Pistons need a perimeter threat, but there's no guarantee that Johnson will develop into that prolific NBA scorer.Stanley Johnson profile page

8/12 - Emmanuel Mudiay

If Mudiay doesn't start the 2015-16 campaign as the primary point guard in Denver, it won't be long before he claims the role. The guard fared well against grown men in China last season and should be able to carve out a role for himself as a floor general in the NBA. He may not take the league by storm in Year 1, but it's hard to imagine a scenario in which he isn't of value in deeper leagues when guards are scarce.Emmanuel Mudiay profile page

8/12 - Willie Cauley-Stein

Heralded for his defense, Cauley-Stein could theoretically contribute in production leagues right out of the gates for Sacramento. He's worth a flyer in any league that rewards his rebounding and blocking and could wind up as a bit of a steal should he stay healthy and demonstrate a knack for inside buckets and put-backs.Willie Cauley-Stein profile page

8/12 - Mario Hezonja

The Magic have a lot of young pieces that require time and patience, so don't expect Hezonja to rake in minutes or statistics right away, but the athletic two-guard is certainly worth getting excited about. If the Croatian can find away to log consistent court time, something he didn't even do in the Spanish ACB league last season, he's a highlight reel that warrants the occasional League Pass viewing. For now, however, he's avoidable in fantasy.Mario Hezonja profile page

8/12 - Kristaps Porzingis

Porzingis has three things going for him with the Knicks this year: length, attitude and opportunity. Unfortunately, a lack of physicality may limit his production in Year 1. While one need only look at his skill set and wingspan to see why the Latvian forward was taken with the fourth overall pick, he'll need to learn how to bang around in the post if he wants to put consistent numbers on the board. Until he gets stronger, his statistical contributions may leave fantasy owners wanting.Kristaps Porzingis profile page

8/12 - Jahlil Okafor

Okafor was a legitimate contender to go first overall for pretty much the entire 2014-15 NCAA campaign. Now a 76er, he'll continue to get every opportunity to show what he's capable of. There's no doubt that the big man is a safe bet to put up 17-plus points and eight or more boards in his rookie year, the question is if wasting away in Philadelphia will have any impact on his long-term development.Jahlil Okafor profile page

8/12 - D'Angelo Russell

Russell's playmaking ability should translate well at the NBA level but there's no guarantee he'll be asked to put up points of his own off the bat. There's no doubt that Russell is the combo guard of the future for L.A., but the team also boasts a bevy of perimeter options in Kobe Bryant, Nick Young and Jordan Clarkson. Even if his circumstances stifle his production in Year 1, the guard is a pleasure to watch and a valuable piece to add in keeper leagues.D'Angelo Russell profile page
