Oklahoma City rookie Chet Holmgren is officially done for the 2022-23 season after suffering a Lisfranc injury, a huge blow to the Thunder’s rebuilding efforts.

After solid Summer League performances, Holmgren was the betting favorite on some sites, including FanDuel, to win Rookie of the Year. I already wrote about my concerns that Holmgren, with his lanky frame, would stay healthy, and sadly I was correct.

The clear favorite now on DraftKings is Orlando’s Paolo Banchero (+200), the No. 1 overall pick in the 2022 NBA Draft. DraftKings will match your first deposit so you can get up to $2,000 for free.

Banchero also had a fine summer and he figures to be a starter and an imposing force for the Magic from opening night.

Sacramento King's rook Keegan Murray is the second betting choice at +450 and it’s a good value because following his impressive summer, he also figures to be a starter from game 1.

Jabari Smith, the No. 3 overall pick by the Houston Rockets, is the third choice at +750, but he struggled a bit this summer so I’d stay away from that option.

Jaden Ivey, the No. 5 pick by the Pistons, is also at +750 and that’s a futures bet I can get behind because he’s the most explosive player in the draft (the next Ja Morant?) and should thrive in the Motor City playing alongside Cade Cunningham.
