Former Indiana forward Cody Zeller has three NBA preseason games under his belt. How has he faired? Read more here.

It's not quite the same as college basketball.

Former Indiana standout Cody Zeller has learned that about the NBA already. Zeller, the first-round pick of the Charlotte Bobcats, now has three preseason games under his belt. He's looked good at times, bad at others.

On Friday night against the defending champion Miami Heat, Zeller had a thunderous dunk over guard James Jones. He finished with nine points on 3-of-8 shooting with five rebounds and three assists. Three of Zeller's boards came on the offensive end.

Saturday night didn't go quite as well for the 7-footer. Zeller, facing his first back-to-back of his career, was scoreless in 24 minutes against the Milwaukee Bucks. Zeller missed all five of his field goal attempts and had a +/- of -21. He did have four rebounds and two assists.

Zeller has gotten the start at power forward in all three games thus far. The Bobcats will be back in action Tuesday night at Cleveland.
