Trevor Ariza was fantastic against the Pelicans during a 95-93 win on Wednesday, making 9-of-13 from the field for 22 points with nine rebounds, five assists, three steals and three 3-pointers in 40 minutes.
That's his fourth game in his last five tries with at least four dimes and he's really stepped up as more than just a catch-and-shoot guy. In that span, Ariza averaged 15.0 points, 8.6 boards, 4.0 dimes, 1.8 steals and 2.4 treys on 55.8 percent from the field and 100 percent from the line. He's getting hot for his fantasy owners at the right time. James Harden was no slouch with 25 points, six rebounds, 10 assists, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer. Mar 26 - 1:48 AM

Trevor Ariza made 1-of-2 from the field for four points with 11 rebounds, one assist and two steals in 32 minutes against the Pacers on Monday.

It was a big surprise to see him not take many shots with his improved shooting lately, making 50.0 percent from the field in his last five. Ariza will likely get it going again soon and should be a mid-round player in standard leagues.

Trevor Ariza (illness) and Patrick Beverley (elbow) will play against the Pacers on Monday.

He was questionable with an illness, but there was little doubt he would play after looking great on Saturday despite being listed as questionable for that game, as well. Ariza is a must-start player this week in all formats.

Trevor Ariza (illness) is questionable for Monday's game vs. the Pacers.

Ariza was questionable coming into Saturday's game against the Suns with an illness, but he went off for 15 points, 12 boards, five assists, two steals and three triples. However, the fact he's still sick a couple days later is not a great sign, and the Rockets are extremely banged up in the frontcourt at the wrong time. If Ariza can't go, rookie K.J. McDaniels could get the call.
Mar 23 - 10:01 AM

Trevor Ariza looked healthy against the Suns on Saturday with 15 points, 12 boards, five assists, two steals and three 3-pointers.

It's obvious he'll be involved more in the offense now. Ariza is usually off the ball, but he's having one of his best runs with assists right now. He has a great chance to be a top-40 player this week and maybe even top 20 if he gets hot from deep.
Mar 21 - 11:48 PM

Trevor Ariza (illness) will play against the Suns on Saturday.

He's the only player on the Rockets to start every game for them this season. Ariza is usually a catch-and-shoot guy, but he may be asked to do more on offense with the Rockets missing Terrence Jones (chest). Start Ariza in all standard leagues.
Mar 21 - 6:32 PM

Trevor Ariza (illness) is expected to play against the Suns on Saturday.

He missed shootaround, but it doesn't sound like he's going to miss his first game of the season. With Terrence Jones (chest) out indefinitely, Ariza should have more offensive responsibility. He's worth starting in daily leagues tonight in what should be an up-tempo game.
Mar 21 - 5:57 PM

Trevor Ariza (illness) missed shootaround and is considered questionable for Saturday's game vs. the Suns.

Ariza has been on fire recently and has scored 17 or more points in each of his last three games, so it will be a huge blow for his owners if he is unable to give it a go. We should know more prior to tip-off, so his owners will want to be on alert for an update. If Ariza is unable to play, Corey Brewer would be in line for some extra minutes and would be worth a long look in daily leagues.
Mar 21 - 11:50 AM

Trevor Ariza scored 19 points on 7-of-15 shooting during Sunday's win over the Clippers, adding nine rebounds, three assists, two 3-pointers, one steal and four turnovers through 39 minutes of action.

Ariza was also a perfect 3-of-3 from the line, putting the cherry on top of a very productive outing for Houston's Swiss Army knife. Ariza isn't going to light up the scoring column on a nightly basis, but his ability to do a little bit of everything (while offering elite steals totals) has him turning in mid-round value on the season.
Mar 15 - 6:54 PM

Trevor Ariza scored 19 points on 7-of-13 shooting (3-of-6 from deep) vs. the Nuggets on Saturday, adding four boards, three assists, two steal and three 3-pointers in just 29 minutes.

This game was over in a hurry, so his owners shouldn't concern themselves with the low minutes. Ariza failed to score in double digits in his previous four games and was just 1-of-17 from 3-point range over that span, so his owners will be thrilled to see him break out of his funk.
Mar 7 - 11:59 PM

Trevor Ariza finished Sunday's overtime win over the Cavs with just four points on 1-of-4 shooting (2-of-2 from the line), but also added seven rebounds, three assists, four steals, two blocks and three turnovers.

Ariza spent much of the game guarding LeBron James, and was conversely guarded by James on offense, which resulted in a less than stellar offensive outing. However, he salvaged his line with his across-the-board contributions, and that's really where his value comes from anyway. Ariza is currently fourth in the league in total steals, and aside from tonight's outing, he's been on a tear since the All-Star break, knocking down 44.1 percent of his shots. Look for Ariza to be more involved in the offense during Tuesday’s showdown with the Hawks.
Mar 1 - 7:27 PM

Trevor Ariza is hot to start his post-break run, making 3.4 triples per game in his last five games.

That is tied for fourth in the NBA in that span. A whopping 61.0 percent of his shots in his last five have been catch-and-shoot 3s, making 44.4 percent of them. Ariza has also seen his usage rate climb to 17.6 in his last five, which is up from 16.1 in his month before the break. He looks poised for a strong finish.
Mar 1 - 10:47 AM

Trevor Ariza (neck) is probable for Wednesday's game vs. the Clippers.

Through four games in February, Ariza has averaged 15.8 points, 3.0 3-pointers, 5.8 rebounds, 3.8 assists and 2.5 steals so his owners will want to get him active even if he's not 100 percent. Ariza should have plenty of time to recover during the All-Star break, so his owners shouldn't be too concerned with his neck injury moving forward.
Feb 11 - 11:02 AM

Trevor Ariza's surge continued in Tuesday's road win, as he racked up 10 points, five rebounds and five assists with a pair of 3-pointers and one steal.

Ariza has taken on a bigger role in Dwight Howard's absence and he's been terrific in four February games, returning elite fantasy value with 15.8 points, 3.0 threes, 5.8 rebounds, 3.8 assists and 2.5 steals. He strained his neck late last week but it's obviously not a concern, and any lingering discomfort should vanish during the All-Star break.
Feb 10 - 11:32 PM

Trevor Ariza (neck) will play in Sunday's game against the Blazers as expected.

He tweaked his neck during Friday's game against the Bucks, but he is said to be doing fine after receiving extensive treatment over the last couple of days. Ariza has been averaging 15.8 points, 5.4 boards, 2.0 assists, 1.8 steals and 3.2 3-pointers over his last five games, so his owners will want to make sure he's active.
