Jahlil Okafor starting for Pistons Friday in place of inactive Isaiah Stewart

Detroit Pistons center Jahlil Okafor is in the lineup Friday in the team's game against the Denver Nuggets.

What It Means:

Mason Plumlee is getting Friday's game off for rest, while rookie Isaiah Stewart is out for personal reasons. As such, it's next man up for Detroit, and that man is former No. 3 overall pick Okafor.

Our models project Okafor for 12.8 points, 6.0 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 23.6 FanDuel points across 28.1 minutes of action.
