Trevor Ariza played 42 minutes on Saturday with 13 points, eight rebounds, two assists, two steals and three 3-pointers.
He made just 4-of-14 from the field, so maybe his illness from this morning kept him down. Ariza attempted a whopping 11 attempts from deep, which is a big reason why he's been putting up mid-round value this season. Dec 13 - 11:56 PM

Trevor Ariza (knee contusion) is listed as probable for Saturday's game vs. Denver.

This injury came out of nowhere but the good news is that he doesn't appear in danger of missing any time. Check back before plugging him into lineups just to be safe, but you will want to roll him out there after he attempted 12 3-pointers on Wednesday. Stay tuned.
Dec 13 - 11:52 AM

Trevor Ariza hit just 5-of-14 shots and 4-of-12 3-pointers, but still scored 18 points to go along with six rebounds, an assist and a steal in Wednesday's loss to the Warriors.

Why Ariza felt the need to shoot 12 3-pointers doesn't make a lot of sense, especially when they weren't falling, but his fine fantasy season continues despite tonight's odd line. He'll shoot it better in his next game, and we're guessing the 12 attempts from downtown will end up being his season high.
Dec 11 - 1:38 AM

Trevor Ariza scored 17 points with nine rebounds, one assist, one steal and five 3-pointers in 44 minutes against the Wolves on Friday.

He's been a fourth-round player on the season despite making just 38.2 percent from the field before tonight. Ariza is racking up the treys and steals as one of the more quietly consistent players in fantasy hoops. He'll have a great chance to remain as a top-50 player.
Dec 6 - 1:31 AM

Trevor Ariza hit just 2-of-10 shots and a 3-pointer for seven points, four rebounds, two assists and a steal in Saturday's win.

He never got it going tonight and while he hasn't exactly been a beast this season, he's still a solid fantasy option and a must-own player going forward.
Nov 22 - 11:47 PM

Trevor Ariza scored 16 points on 4-of-13 shooting (1-of-7 from deep, 7-of-7 from the foul line) with three rebounds, four assists and one steal in Monday's blowout loss to the Grizzlies.

Ariza has held early round value to start the year and he's crushing his ADP. Playing a bit over his head in a handful of categories, there are no real outliers and owners can feel relatively confident that outside of an injury he has a top-60 floor. Dwight Howard added 15 points and nine boards, while James Harden really struggled with just 1-of-8 hits for six points and an otherwise strong output.
Nov 18 - 1:26 AM

Trevor Ariza hit just 2-of-10 shots and one 3-pointer for seven points, three rebounds, three assists and two steals in Thursday's easy win over the resting Spurs.

We were hoping for much bigger things from Ariza tonight, but he seemed to play down to the competition. The Spurs rested most of their stars and Ariza just couldn't get it going. He's been great all year, so just chalk this up as an off night.
Nov 6 - 10:32 PM

Trevor Ariza has been fitting in nicely with Houston early on this season by posting averages for 17.6 points, 5.4 boards, 3.2 assists, 1.8 assists, and a ridiculous 4.2 3-pointers per game.

It looks like Houston is doing just fine without Chandler Parsons and a lot of that has to with the play of Ariza. After shutting down Wade for most of the game on Tuesday, he sank five 3-pointers to lead Houston to a huge win. Ariza needs to be locked into all lineups as he looks to continue his impressive play for his new team.
Nov 5 - 12:19 PM

Trevor Ariza didn't attempt any shots until mid-way through the second quarter of Tuesday's road win, but he quickly picked up the pace to finish with 19 points, five 3-pointers, five rebounds, five assists and three steals.

He was coming off an efficient 24-point game on Monday and so far he's dispelled fears that he'd drop off without John Wall feeding him easy passes on the perimeter. "He knows who he is, he takes his shots," coach Kevin McHale said of Ariza. "He's playing very well for us." Fantasy owners will happily echo the sentiment.
Nov 4 - 10:25 PM

Trevor Ariza took advantage of the opponent on Monday against the Sixers, scoring 24 points on 8-of-13 shooting (including six threes) with six rebounds, seven assists and two steals.

Ariza has started off the season with a bang and owners have to feel pretty good about their mid-round pick. He is averaging 17.3 points, 4.0 triples, 5.5 boards, 2.8 assists and 1.5 steals per game while hitting 57 percent of his shots. It's a bit of a sell-high moment after a night like this.
Nov 3 - 9:58 PM

Trevor Ariza continued his catch-and-shoot ways against the Jazz on Wednesday, making four 3-pointers on his way to 20 points, five rebounds, one assist and two steals in 37 minutes.

It's early, but he doesn't look to be missing John Wall at all. Ariza is going to be asked to bury a lot of triples and his perimeter defense will go a long way for Houston. He's shaping up to be a nice steal for savvy fantasy owners.
Oct 30 - 12:54 AM

Trevor Ariza made his season debut on Tuesday for the Rockets, notching 16 points (5-of-8 from downtown), three rebounds, two assists, two steals and two turnovers in 30 minutes.

Ariza made an impressive return with the Rockets, whom he played for during the 2009-10 season. He's coming off a career-best year, scoring 14.4 points with a gaudy 2.3 triples per game, but it remains to be seen how much of his success is attributable to John Wall. The early returns are encouraging and he's playing uncontested minutes at SF in an up-tempo offense, which bodes well for owners who drafted him in the early-middle rounds.
Oct 29 - 1:46 AM

Trevor Ariza will not play against the Magic on Wednesday.

He's just getting a night off and has played fairly well in the preseason. Ariza has an effective field goal percentage of at least 50 percent in five of the six preseason contests. He won't be quite as good as last year, but he's still a nice target in the middle rounds.
Oct 22 - 5:44 PM

Trevor Ariza had 13 points on 6-of-10 shooting, one 3-pointer, two rebounds, three assists and four steals to help the Rockets defeat the visiting Warriors on Sunday.

Ariza is coming off a career-best season in which he averaged 14.4 points, 2.3 triples, 6.2 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 1.6 steals per game. He was playing in a contract year while absorbing easy 3-point attempts courtesy of John Wall, however, so fantasy owners shouldn't expect him to repeat those stellar numbers. As the unquestioned starting SF in an up-tempo offense he's still worth a pick in the middle rounds.
Oct 19 - 11:00 PM

Trevor Ariza is excited to begin his second stint with the Houston Rockets.

Ariza last played with the Yao Ming-led Rockets during the 2009-10 season and is looking forward to his second go-round with the team. ""This time is different. Everyone is healthy, We all want to win a championships and that is what is driving the bus," Ariza said. "I am definitely better at shooting the ball and defensively, I just give everything I have when I am on the court." While he may have a tough time duplicating his 2013-14 numbers, the 29-year-old is still a solid middle-to-late round fantasy pick as he should be a great fit for Houston's up-tempo offense.
