Ranking 10 Early 2018-19 Season Sixth Man of the Year Candidates
#5 Dennis Schroder
Russell Westbrook’s absence, both at the start of the season when the former MVP was recovering from offseason knee surgery and more recently after he sprained his ankle, has thrusted Schroder into the starting lineup. Long-term, though, the native of Germany is expected to be one of the premier reserves in the league. He’s been excellent lately, scoring at least 20 points in four of OKC’s seven games this month.
