P.J. Dozier has had a strong first-half of the G-League season and was honored for it.
The Columbia native and former South Carolina standout was named to the Midseason All-NBA G League teams, voted on by NBA G League coaches, general managers and players. The midseason teams are named in lieu of the league not having an all-star game.

The former Spring Valley standout is 10th in the G League in scoring at 21.5 points a game to go along with 6.8 rebounds and 7 assists per game. His 7 assists per games also rank 10th in the league.
