14. Willie Cauley-Stein
The Dallas Mavericks will be without their seven-foot giant in Disney World. Cauley-Stein chose to opt-out because his wife is pregnant with the couple’s first child. He doesn’t want to risk putting her health in danger. You’ve got to say that is a good enough reason.
Furthermore, with the NBA operating in a bubble, it would be weeks until he could see his newborn child. In sum, that’s why he just can’t take the time away. The Mavericks used him sparingly this season but he would definitely be a useful option in the postseason. Now they must plan to be without him.
