Trevor Ariza scored just six points on 2-of-10 shooting vs. the Pacers on Monday.
He's been in a brutal all slump all month, shooting just 31.1 percent from the field in February. He's still getting a lot of playing time and logged 36 minutes tonight, adding five rebounds and one assist. Ariza has the ceiling of a top-25 player, but his floor is low when he's not hitting 3-pointers -- he missed all seven of his triples tonight. He's absolutely worth holding in standard leagues and did have a nice game on Saturday with 15 points, three assists, three rebounds, one steal and three triples. Feb 28 - 1:11 AM

Trevor Ariza hit 4-of-11 shots and three 3-pointers for 11 points, seven rebounds, three assists, two steals and two blocks in 42 minutes of Thursday's win over the Hornets.

He's scored in double figures in three straight games after scoring no more than seven points in his previous four games, but even when he's not scoring or making shots, he comes through with value based on his steals and 3-pointers. He's hit at least one 3-pointer in five straight games, and has hit nine of them in his last three, and has also recorded at least one steal in nine straight.
Feb 9 - 9:40 PM

Trevor Ariza hit 7-of-15 shots and four 3-pointers for 20 points, seven rebounds, four assists and two steals in Tuesday's blowout 128-104 win over the Magic.

Ariza has been in a funk, scoring seven or fewer points in a four-game stretch from Jan. 27 to Feb. 2, and then going for 10 points, six boards and two 3-pointers on Friday. He was due to break out of his slump and it happened tonight against the Magic. Prior to tonight, he had hit just 6-of-30 shots over his previous four games, so here's to hoping that he got it all worked out tonight. He should have a good matchup against the Hornets on Thursday night, so don't be afraid to roll with Ariza in that one.
Feb 7 - 10:28 PM

Trevor Ariza scored 10 points on 3-of-7 shooting vs. the Bulls on Friday.

Baby steps. Ariza has been in a terrible slump, shooting 4-of-29 from the field in his previous four games. He looked better tonight, hitting 2-of-6 from beyond the arc with six rebounds, one assist and three steals in 39 minutes. The big lines are coming, so hang in there. He gets a matchup with the Magic on Tuesday, a team that is allowing the seventh most fantasy points to opposing small forwards.
Feb 4 - 12:54 AM

Trevor Ariza hit 1-of-12 shots for three points with five rebounds, three assists, two steals and one 3-pointer in Thursday's loss to the Hawks.

The slump continued for Ariza, who is 4-of-29 from the field for 19 points over his last 4 games. It has been a brutal month for him, as he is averaging fewer than 11 points per game in January. The Rockets take on the Bulls Friday, which is a tough matchup for Ariza on a back-to-back as they rank seventh in defensive efficiency. As frustrating as it is, fantasy owners will just have to ride it out with Ariza, who is still playing big minutes for the Rockets.
Feb 2 - 10:56 PM

Trevor Ariza scored three points with 10 rebounds, two assists and one 3-pointer in 36 minutes against the Grizzlies on Saturday.

The 10 rebounds tied his season-high, but the three points was a season-low for Ariza. He did not turn the ball over, which is one of his strengths and despite a bad shooting night, he continues to be a top-40 fantasy player. Struggling against the Grizzlies is not out of the norm, as they are ranked 4th in defense efficiency and play at a slow pace. He looks to bounce back against Milwaukee on Monday, who are ranked 18th in defense efficiency.
Jan 21 - 11:12 PM

Trevor Ariza tied his season-high with six 3-pointers on Sunday, going 7-of-11 overall to finish with 23 points, eight rebounds, two assists and two steals.

This was Ariza's second-highest scoring game of the season, trailing only a 27-point game vs. the Mavs back on Oct. 28. He didn't turn the ball over in 33 minutes tonight, highlighting one of his strengths in 9-cat leagues, and he's thriving in James Harden's shadow as a top-40 fantasy asset.
Jan 15 - 9:11 PM

Trevor Ariza scored 17 points on 5-of-10 shots vs. Toronto on Sunday, with all of his attempts coming from downtown.

He filled out his line with seven rebounds, three assists and two steals in 42 minutes. The Rockets are now 10-0 in the second game of back-to-back sets, which is even more impressive given how much energy they expend in a fast-paced system. Ariza has been deadly all year, particularly on corner 3-pointers, and he's a quiet top-40 fantasy player in roto leagues.
Jan 8 - 9:05 PM

Trevor Ariza could be suspended for waiting outside the Mavericks locker room in order to confront Salah Mejri following Tuesday's win over the Mavericks.

Mejri reportedly said some things about Ariza's family during the game that Ariza did not take too kindly, and Mejri reportedly wanted to confront Ariza but was steered away by the Mavs assistant general manager Keith Grant. For what it's worth, Patrick Beverley, James Harden and Eric Gordon also waited outside the Dallas locker room alongside Ariza, and at the very least, there could be a fine coming from the league.

Trevor Ariza was ejected with two technical fouls in Tuesday's game vs. the Mavericks.

The officials gave out a total of five technicals in the third quarter, so Ariza may not be the least person to get tossed from this game. For what it's worth, he was T'd up for talking to the Mavs' bench, so he's in no danger of a suspension. He finished with nine points, seven rebounds, one assist, one steal and three triples in 30 minutes, shooting 3-of-5 from the field.

Trevor Ariza had eight points, 10 rebounds, four assists, five steals and a 3-pointer on 3-of-9 shooting in Monday's blowout 131-115 win over the Suns.

That's a great line from Ariza and it would have been much better had he made some shots. His shot is a problem right now, but he's still averaging 10.2 points, 5.6 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 3.0 steals and 2.0 3-pointers on 38 percent shooting over his last five games.
Tue, Dec 27, 2016 12:30:00 AM

Trevor Ariza scored 16 points with six rebounds, two assists, four steals, one block and three 3-pointers in 35 minutes against the Spurs on Tuesday.

Those four turnovers were costly with one really bad pass late in this game. Based on the stats, Ariza may have the toughest adjustment with Clint Capela out. With Capela this season, Ariza’s true shooting percentage is 13.0 percent better than without him prior to tonight. Ariza’s usage rate is also 3.3 percent higher with Capela, so it’ll be interesting to see how he can adjust his game. He should be fine and continue to post early-round value.

Trevor Ariza hit 3-of-8 shots and was 0-for-4 from downtown for seven points, two rebounds, three assists and two blocks in 37 minutes of Monday's win over the Nets.

We haven't blurbed Ariza since Dec. 5, mainly because he hasn't done a lot of things that have been newsworthy. He's averaging 11.4 points, 5.8 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 1.4 steals, 0.8 blocks and 1.8 3-pointers on 45 percent shooting over his last five games. There's nothing wrong with those numbers, but there's nothing too exciting about them, either.
Tue, Dec 13, 2016 12:39:00 AM

Trevor Ariza played through a sore back on Monday and had 15 points, eight rebounds, two blocks and three 3-pointers in 33 minutes on Monday.

He was iffy coming in it wasn't known if he'd play until after 6 p.m. After scoring just six points last Tuesday, Ariza is scoring again, going for 15, 16 and 12 points over his last three games, with nice rebounds, steals, blocks and 3-pointers thrown in for good measure.
Mon, Dec 5, 2016 11:54:00 PM

Trevor Ariza (back) will play Monday vs. the Celtics.

There's no word on any sort of minutes limit for Ariza, so his owners can feel free to get him out there. He'll draw a favorable matchup against Boston, so he's on the DFS radar as well.
