Charlie Brown Jr. starting for Thunder Saturday in place of injured Lu Dort

Oklahoma City Thunder guard Charlie Brown Jr. will start on Saturday in the team's game against the Indiana Pacers.

What It Means:

Brown is making his first career start. The 24-year-old wing is on a 10-day contract with the Thunder, and head coach Mark Daigneault said he wants to give Brown extended minutes to get a good look at him. With Lu Dort sitting, Brown will slide right into the vacated lineup spot.

Our models project Brown for 10.0 points, 3.2 rebounds, 1.2 assists and 24.4 FanDuel points across 27.4 minutes of action.
