Kyle Kuzma scored a career-high 22 points against the Blazers on Thursday, adding three rebounds, one block and one 3-pointer in 29 minutes.
Larry Nance Jr. (hand) is out indefinitely, so Kuzma has to be considered the favorite to take over as the starter at power forward. Kuzma has still logged some decent minutes next to the first-unit guys, but he's played an overwhelming majority of his minutes next to Julius Randle -- he's also rarely played small forward. The rookie has already played over 30 minutes three times this year, so saying he'll play in the low 30s feels like a certainty. We'd like to see him add more non-scoring stats, but he should be owned in all standard leagues.
