Shane Larkin managed just seven points and seven assists with just one trey to the rest of his stat line in 23 minutes off the bench on Wednesday.
Larkin has been given a massive window of opportunity but he just can’t secure a foothold in fantasy leagues. Donald Sloan starter and went for 12 and nine in 25 minutes, playing a cut above Larkin since Jarrett Jack’s season ended a week or so ago. Larkin seemed like he was getting a fresh chance to show his stuff as we entered the beginning of the year, but with a new interim coach and organizational clean-up — it sure seems like Larkin is not on steady footing. It’s the type of situation that could shift at a moment’s notice, but Larkin’s struggles have pushed him out of must-own status for 12-team leagues, despite a massive opportunity.
