He's minutes to points ratio is pretty good. He's a big man that can shoot FTs. He's not one of those rookies with fouling problems. But, other than that, he doesn't really contribute much.

He was a good rebounder and shot blocker in college, but hasn't shown much of that in the NBA.

I've read that he can hit 3s, but probably not as well as Ryan.

What kind of stat line can this guy produce if he gets 25-30 mins? He didn't seem like much of a blocker until tonight, but I don't know much about him.

around 15pts, 6-7 rebs, 1 blk a steal there and here...maybe, but he has played 25min today and has looked pretty good im guessing they'll start him over moe harkless as soon as Al Harrington comes off the injury.....atleast, im hoping.

Man, I'm tempted to pick this guy up.  I have a feeling coach Vaughn is going to start him (eventually), especially after tonight's game.

I play in dinasty format so this guy was kind of a must add for me when he started to get enough minutes and it became somehow clear that coach trusts him. I don't really know but I have this feeling that this guy is gonna be a starter by the end of the year. Who is he gonna replace? I don't know, does he play SF also? And what's the status with Harrington, not injury status but his overall status in Orlando? Does he have a future there? From what I've heard no and if so I don't see him like a much of a threat for Andrew, especially when all is lost for Orlando, Quite the same with Turkoglu, Big baby is not so bad, but are they realy gonna build a future around him, not so sure... I believe Avdrew will play around 25 mins regularly as the season progress, my projections are similar to what keep it one hunnid projected, maybe not 15 pts, more like 12, and I think he's gonna start shooting 3's, we'll se.

Looks a lot like Carl Landry - a very useful player in esp. roto. Looking at his college stats there also seems to be some upside in blk and 3pt. I replaced Barnes with this guy in dynasty. Not flashy but efficient.

you guys even watch the NCAA tournament?

Nicholson was a stud and absolutely murdered every team he played.  The kid is pretty good.

His ceiling is solid starter/extremely good role player who can score.  

As a fantasy asset, I wouldn't expect much except for some points.

so you think he's worth a spec add?
