2019 Fantasy Outlook
Bazley's journey to the NBA was an unconventional one. He originally committed to play at Syracuse as a five-star recruit out of high school before electing to bypass college and play in the G League. He then elected to bypass the G League and interned at New Balance to go along with his endorsement deal. Even though he spent a year away from competitive basketball, Bazley's physical tools are enough for him to remain an intriguing prospect. At 6-foot-10 with a 7-foot wingspan, Bazley boasts the frame of a prototypical versatile forward in today's NBA, but he has a long way to go as a fairly raw prospect. Given the number of versatile athletes Oklahoma City already has on its roster, it may be a year or two before Bazley becomes a reliable contributor at the next level. He was also underwhelming at summer league, averaging 4.8 points, 4.5 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 1.3 blocks across 21.7 minutes in four appearances. Read Past Outlooks

Knee
February 10, 2020
Bazley was diagnosed with a right knee bone bruise and will be re-evaluated in four-to-six weeks, Royce Young of ESPN.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Bazley injured his knee during Sunday's game against the Celtics, and after further evaluation it was determined that the rookie will be forced to miss at least one month as a result. In his absence, the Thunder could turn to the likes of Hamidou Diallo or Mike Muscala behind Danilo Gallinari. Since the start of January, Bazley was averaging 5.5 points and 3.6 rebounds in 17.2 minutes per game.
