Week 17 is a relatively normal setup before we head into Week 18, which is shortened by the All-Star break and sees most teams play just two games. Only one squad, the Jazz, has two games this week, with the remainder of the teams playing three or four contests. Here's how Week 17 breaks down:
Teams with four games: ATL, IND, MIL, NOP, ORL, PHO, SAC, SAS, WAS
Teams with three games: BKN, BOS, CHA, CHI, CLE, DAL, DEN, DET, GSW, HOU, LAC, LAL, MEM, MIA, MIN, NYK, OKC, PHI, POR, TOR
Team with two games: UTA
Regarding the Kristaps Porzingis trade, it's possible we get some clarity on the incoming players' roles before the start of Week 17. DeAndre Jordan and Wesley Matthews are both buyout candidates, and neither may end up playing a game in a Knicks uniform. Based on what we saw during Thursday's loss to the Pistons, the Mavericks may run a three-center rotation using Maxi Kleber, Salah Mejri and Dwight Powell.
n that case, Mejri is the only player of the trio that sees a bump, but it may not be big enough for 12-team leagues. And at this point it's very much unclear if Porzingis will take the floor for the Mavs before the end of the season.

Opponents: PHI, ATL, NYK
Green has been sneaking his way up the fantasy ranks as of late, fueled by
