Fratello’s Fantasy Pick: Roy Hibbert

The Pacer’s No. 2 scorer and leading rebounder Troy Murphy has missed the last three games due to a left ankle sprain and remains an injury risk for Week 11. Indiana is counting on second year center Roy Hibbert to pick up the slack in the starting lineup and he’s delivering, scoring a career best 25 against the Grizzlies and helping to snap an eight game losing streak with 21 against Minnesota on Saturday.

The former Hoya has improved considerably this year and is averaging 18 ppg and 7.7 rpg over the last three games. Hibbert should continue to get minutes while Murphy recovers and if he can get to the free throw line (he’s shooting 75 percent this season), I anticipate more double digits and a repeat performance against the Wolves.
