Trevor Ariza (rest) will not play vs. the Spurs on Friday.
He's a perfect in Mike D'Antoni's system and has started to turn things around after a slow start to the preseason, averaging 12.7 points, 4.5 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 2.0 steals and 2.3 treys per game. Corey Brewer and K.J. McDaniels should both get a long look on Friday. Oct 21 - 12:20 PM

Trevor Ariza scored three points with six rebounds, one assist, one steal and one 3-pointer in 26 minutes on Wednesday.

It's been a rough preseason for Ariza. In his five games against NBA teams this month, he's only made 29.7 percent from the field with averages of 7.2 points, 5.0 boards, 1.0 assists, 0.8 steals and 1.2 treys. His minutes should still be safe in the mid 30s and should be one of a handful of players to have at least 2.0 steals and treys. If he starts sliding in the middle rounds in standard leagues, you know what to do.
Oct 19 - 11:20 PM

Trevor Ariza notched 10 points, two 3-pointers, seven rebounds, one steal and zero turnovers in 27 minutes vs. the Knicks on Tuesday.

The Rockets found minutes for Corey Brewer, K.J. McDaniels and Sam Dekker tonight, but none of them are threats to Ariza's role this year. The perennially-undervalued forward averaged 12.7 points, 2.3 triples, 4.5 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 2.0 steals, 0.3 blocks and 1.4 turnovers last year, with just one DNP, propelling him to top-30 value in 9-cat leagues. Don't sleep on him.
Oct 4 - 10:43 PM

The Cavs are looking to add at least one "athletic, shooting" wing, sources told ESPN's Chris Broussard.

Cleveland had interest in Trevor Ariza, but Houston is not looking to move him. It's unclear where the Cavs might turn in their pursuit to improve the roster, but we know it won't be in Dwyane Wade's direction.
Jul 6 - 11:20 AM

The Rockets are gauging trade interest on Trevor Ariza, Patrick Beverley, and K.J. McDaniels, according to Jake Fischer of Sports Illustrated.

The Rockets will likely play a big part of the NBA Draft trade landscape and it looks like they'll try to involve Ariza, Beverley, and/or McDaniels in potential deals. While Ariza delivered top-40 value in nine-category fantasy leagues, his value could take a hit if his role is diminished on a new team.
Jun 23 - 1:42 PM

Trevor Ariza finished his 2015-16 season with just two points, one rebound and one assist on Wednesday, going 1-of-8 from downtown as the Rockets fell to the Warriors in Game 5.

Ariza was dreadful offensively throughout the first round of the playoffs, shooting 25.5 percent, and the only positive was his defense -- he averaged 2.6 steals and was easily the leader in deflections per game (4.8). He flirted with top-40 fantasy value during the regular season (9-cat) but his role could change depending upon Houston's choice of a head coach, not to mention any personnel moves this offseason.
Apr 28 - 1:24 AM

Trevor Ariza was held to eight points on 3-of-11 shooting on Sunday vs. the Warriors, adding two boards and two steals in 36 minutes.

He's been terrible on the offensive end this series and was shooting just 28.1 percent from the field in his previous three games. The Rockets are facing an elimination game in Golden State on Wednesday, but Ariza has just been too cold to trust in DFS.
Apr 24 - 6:26 PM

Trevor Ariza was held to just seven points on 3-of-12 shooting vs. the Warriors on Thursday, adding five boards, one assist, three steals and one block in 42 minutes.

He defense has been great, but Ariza is in a serious slump on the offensive end. He's now shooting a brutal 28.1 percent from the field in this series, so he really has nowhere to go but up. He will look to bounce back in Game 4 on Sunday.
Apr 22 - 12:57 AM

Trevor Ariza got the start at power forward against the Warriors on Saturday, scoring nine points with eight rebounds, one assist, four steals and two 3-pointers.

The vast majority of his minutes were at the four, but it really didn't work out for the Rockets in this game. Ariza was 3-of-10 from the field and missed a few open looks. He should get major minutes in this series regardless of what position he plays.
Apr 16 - 6:50 PM

Trevor Ariza scored 21 points with four rebounds, two assists, one steal and three 3-pointers in a win over the Wolves on Monday.

He's been elite in fantasy in the past three months. In his last 44 games, Ariza averaged 14.1 points, 4.2 boards, 2.6 assists, 2.2 steals, 0.4 blocks and 2.6 treys on 44.3 percent from the field. He's been a top-20 player in standard leagues in that span and turned it on down the stretch for the second straight season. If he starts slow again next year, there's nothing to worry about.
Apr 12 - 12:27 AM

Trevor Ariza scored 22 points against the Suns on Thursday with two rebounds, three assists, four steals, three blocks and five 3-pointers in 38 minutes.

It's a huge game for Ariza, but it wasn't enough in one of the most embarrassing losses in NBA history given the pressure of this game. Ariza has been terrific for months and he should be in a position to succeed the rest of the way this season. Anything goes with the Rockets in the offseason, though.
Apr 7 - 10:40 PM

Trevor Ariza scored 18 points on 5-of-13 shooting Sunday to go with seven boards, three assists, and three 3-pointers in 44 minutes.

Ariza was hot out the gates, scoring nine points in the first five minutes of regulation, but he unfortunately failed to contribute a single steal to the box score. It was just the 12th time this season that Ariza has failed to earn at least one steal, so obviously it's not a trend that's likely to continue.
Apr 3 - 7:05 PM

Trevor Ariza scored 15 points on 5-of-10 shooting in Tuesday's win over the Cavaliers.

He was awesome and hit the biggest shot of the night when he nailed a corner 3-pointer with 18 seconds left in the game. Ariza added six boards, three assists, one steal and two triples in 40 minutes, and he will look to stay hot vs. the Bulls on Thursday.
Mar 29 - 11:27 PM

Trevor Ariza could not get his shot to drop during Friday's win over Toronto, going 1-of-8 from the field on his way to six points, four boards, one assist, one steal, one block, one 3-pointer and three turnovers in 37 minutes.

Ariza didn't even hit his first shot until the fourth quarter, but at least it was a triple. The scoring comes and goes for Ariza, but his ability to bring a little bit of everything to the stat sheet is what makes this guy elite. His 147 steals on the season have him sitting in second place for total steals on the year, and he's been a third-round stud since the All-Star break.
Mar 25 - 11:58 PM

Trevor Ariza made 5-of-8 from the field for 12 points with three rebounds, one assist, one block and two 3-pointers against the Jazz on Wednesday.

He shot the ball a lot less after a 7-of-28 (25 percent) shooting slump in his last two games. Ariza continues to post huge stat lines since January and has been a top-25 player in the 2016 portion of the season. There's no reason to think he'll slow down.
