Trevor Ariza's hot streak continued on Friday, as he scored 19 points on 7-of-10 shooting (3-of-5 from the line) to go with four boards, three steals, one assist, two 3-pointers, one block and four turnovers through 35 minutes.
Ariza has been hot over the past three games, putting in averages of 18.7 points, 7.0 boards, 3.3 three-pointers and 2.3 steals per game on 45.5 percent shooting from the field. His arrow is pointing up after a slow start to the year, and the buy-low window is quickly closing with three straight games scoring in double figures. Nov 20 - 11:39 PM

Trevor Ariza made 6-of-18 from the field for 18 points against the Blazers on Wednesday, adding eight rebounds, two assists, one steal and four 3-points in 37 minutes.

The shooting percentage stinks and he's still sitting at just 33.6 percent on the year. Ariza is launching a ton of treys with 22 attempts in his last two and he really just needs to heat up. He's a prime buy-low player with nobody threatening his playing time.

Trevor Ariza played through his groin injury on Monday vs. the Celtics and scored 19 points with nine boards, three steals, one block and four 3-pointers in 32 minutes.

That's more like it. Ariza came into Monday's game shooting 32.1 percent from the field and 30.2 percent from 3-point range, but he was a lot more aggressive tonight and shot 7-of-16 from the field and 4-of-10 from deep. One good game doesn't mean that his slump is over, but it's an encouraging sign for his owners who invested a mid-round pick in him. He will look to keep the momentum going on Wednesday vs. the Blazers and we'll let you know if his groin gives him any more issues.

Trevor Ariza (groin) will start on Wednesday vs. the Celtics.

He picked up the injury against the Mavs on Saturday, but he was able to play through the issue. The Rockets originally listed him as questionable, so he likely won't be 100 percent tonight. Despite a slow start to the season, Ariza is fully expected to turn it around soon. He is currently shooting just 32.1 percent from the field and 30.2 percent from 3-point range.

Trevor Ariza (groin), who is listed as questionable for Monday's game, expects to play vs. Boston.

If Ariza was dealing with this prior, it would certainly help to explain his underwhelming performance. Shooting just 32.1 percent from the field and 30.2 percent from behind the 3-point line, Ariza hasn't been able to get it going yet this season. If he's forced to sit out, Corey Brewer would likely draw the start with Marcus Thornton picking up some extra minutes. This also helps to explain K.J. McDaniels being recalled from the D-League, as well.

Trevor Ariza made 1-of-8 from the field for four points with six rebounds, two assists, three steals and one 3-pointer in 25 minutes against the Mavs on Saturday.

He did have some sort of tweak to his right leg as he went for a steal, but he was able to return. Ariza may have pulled a muscle in his upper leg, so his owners will want to keep their eyes peeled for an injury update. He's having a terrible start to his season for the second year in a row. His owners shouldn't panic.
Nov 14 - 10:45 PM

Trevor Ariza had a nice all-around effort during Friday's loss to the Nuggets, putting up 13 points (4-of-12 FGs, 3-of-4 FTs), two 3-pointers, three boards, three assists, two steals and just one turnover through 38 minutes of work.

Ariza is getting plenty of open looks, but he's just not knocking those shots down during the early goings of the 2015-16 season. The Rockets are a bit of a mess right now, and Ariza isn't exactly helping on the offensive end shooting a career-worst 33.7 percent from the field, but he's just too talented to not figure this out. Ariza was a top-30 guy after the All-Star break last season, so now would be a good time to buy-low as he's currently posting just sixth and seventh-round value in 9-cat and 8-cat leagues.
Nov 14 - 12:25 AM

Trevor Ariza scored 18 points on 6-of-13 shooting (including four treys) with eight rebounds and two steals in Friday's win over the Kings.

Ariza is starting to heat up and any buy low window from earlier in the year is definitely slammed shut. He will be a solid mid-round asset this season.
Nov 7 - 2:45 AM

Trevor Ariza finally got hot on Wednesday with 19 points, seven rebounds, two assists, three steals and four 3-ponters in 41 minutes.

He was at just 27.5 percent from the field before tonight, so his 6-of-11 in this win had to feel good. Ariza was a slow starter in a big way last year, but he turned it on in January. Hopefully he doesn't take quite as long to get going. He's a strong mid-round asset.
Nov 5 - 1:34 AM

Trevor Ariza's slow start continued on Friday with 11 points, five rebounds, one assist and two 3-pointers in 30 minutes.

He's been a slow starter in his career, so there's no need to be concerned about Ariza despite this game and a six-point dud on Wednesday. Look for him to heat up against the Miami on Sunday.
Oct 31 - 3:08 AM

Trevor Ariza scored 24 points on 10-of-14 from the field against the Heat on Saturday to go with five rebounds, one assist, two steals, one block and four 3-pointers.

The addition of Ty Lawson is actually not a bad thing for Ariza because he should be wide open for 3-pointers as defenses collapse on drives and pick-and-roll plays. He put up early-round value after he got over his early-season slump last year and is a very solid target in the early middle rounds.
Oct 17 - 10:50 PM

Trevor Ariza (rest) will not suit up for Thursday's preseason game against Golden State.

He's fine, and he'll likely be back in action for Houston's next preseason game on Saturday. Expect Corey Brewer and K.J. McDaniels to get some extended minutes in tonight's meaningless game.
Oct 15 - 2:27 PM

Trevor Ariza put forth a nice all-around effort during a preseason loss to the Magic on Sunday, scoring 11 points on 3-of-7 shooting with four assists, two rebounds, two 3-pointers and one steal in just 21 minutes of action.

Ariza certainly has his cold streaks, but his value is rooted in his 3-point shooting and elite contributions to the steals category. He was a third-round asset after the All-Star break last season, and he'll make for a fine mid-round selection on draft day.
Oct 12 - 12:04 AM

Trevor Ariza (rest) will not play vs. the Mavericks on Wednesday.

It's the second game of a back-to-back set, so Ariza will be happy to get some rest. He scored 12 points with two assists and four steals in Tuesday's game vs. the Grizzlies, and he will be an excellent pick in the early middle rounds this season.
Oct 7 - 6:35 PM

Trevor Ariza hit 5-of-8 shots and a 3-pointer for a team-high 12 points, one rebounds, two assists and four steals in Tuesday's preseason loss to the Grizzlies.

The steals were nice to see and he shot the ball well tonight. Ariza should be a solid fourth-round pick in all fantasy formats this season.
