Kyle Singler started Tuesday's game but didn't score in 19 minutes of action, missing all four of his field goals without attempting any free throws.
Singler has started three straight games since joining the Thunder but he's averaging 17.3 minutes in those contests, which isn't nearly enough burn to help fantasy owners. He's off the standard-league radar and may not even be in OKC's rotation once Kevin Durant (foot) returns to action. Feb 24 - 11:13 PM

In his second straight start for the Thunder, Kyle Singler chipped in seven points, two rebounds and one steal while committing five fouls in just 15 minutes of action.

Singler's perimeter scoring is a boon for the Thunder, especially with Kevin Durant (foot) on the sidelines, but his fantasy relevance should vanish upon KD's return. As things stand he's a decent source of scoring and 3-pointers, but don't expect well-rounded value from the 26-year-old swingman -- he's shooting under 40 percent this season while averaging 2.6 boards, 1.2 assists, 0.6 steals and 0.3 blocks in 24 minutes per game.

Kyle Singler scored six points with two rebounds and one assist in 18 minutes on Saturday.

There is just no opportunity for him even with Kevin Durant out. Singler may play a little more once he gets acclimated, but he is going to need too many things to happen to have value in even 20-team leagues.

Kyle Singler will draw the start on Saturday against the Hornets in place of Kevin Durant (foot).

Singler was acquired from the Pistons at the trade deadline, and while he wasn't expected to be a large part of the rotation upon his arrival, Durant's foot injury forced OKC's hand. Singler might be able to provide owners in deeper leagues with some short-term value, but with season averages of just 7.1 points and 2.6 rebounds in 23.8 minutes per game, there isn't a lot of appeal here.
Feb 21 - 12:23 PM

Kyle Singler was traded to the Thunder on Thursday.

He will have less playing time headed his way. Singler may not even be in the rotation with his new team, so he can be cut in almost all leagues.
Feb 19 - 2:58 PM

Kyle Singler was held to single-digit scoring for the third straight game on Sunday, shooting 2-of-5 from the field to finish with five points in 32 minutes vs. the Wolves.

Minnesota's defense isn't exactly air-tight, which makes Singler's quiet night all the more discouraging. He added three boards, three assists and two blocks for fantasy owners, so it wasn't a total loss, but heavy playing time (30.8 minutes in February) hasn't been enough for Singler to hold reliable value in 12-team leagues.
Feb 8 - 9:12 PM

Kyle Singler had 14 points, four rebounds, four assists, three steals and two 3-pointers on 6-of-12 shooting in another start on Saturday.

This was his first double-digit scoring night in five games (he failed to score in his previous game) and just the fifth of January. We'd need to see him start playing like this on a regular basis before telling you to pick him up, but if you rolled the dice on him in DFS, he came through.

Kyle Singler (nose) said will no longer wear a protective mask for the broken nose he suffered on January 21.

Singler was held scoreless for the second time in 143 NBA starts on Wednesday and will look to get back on track against the Rockets on Saturday. The 26-year-old is averaging just 6.0 points, 3.2 rebounds, 1.2 assists, and 1.4 three-pointers over his last five games and doesn't provide much fantasy value outside deeper leagues.

Kyle Singler took only three shots in 26 minutes on Sunday, making one of them to finish a loss to the Raptors with four points, two rebounds and two assists.

Singler hasn't been worth owning in 14-team leagues this season and he'll now have an adjustment period with D.J. Augustin taking the reins of Detroit's offense. There's not enough upside here to bother with him outside of deep leagues.
Jan 25 - 10:21 PM

Kyle Singler will play with a mask against the Bucks on Saturday.

He had a procedure on Friday and should be ready to go. Singler broke his nose and it shouldn't affect his playing time. He's a low-ceiling option in deep leagues.

Kyle Singler (nasal fracture) is questionable for Saturday's game in Milwaukee

Singler was injured on Wednesday, when he scored 14 points in 22 minutes vs. the Magic. He continues to hold down a starting job but hasn't done much to help fantasy owners, averaging 7.4 points on 42.0 percent shooting, so there's no incentive to gamble on him while his status is in doubt.
Jan 23 - 12:14 PM

Kyle Singler cooled off vs. the Hawks on Monday, making 2-of-7 shots with one 3-pointer to finish with five points, four boards and one assist.

He added a steal without any turnovers in 22 minutes, but this was a predictable letdown after watching him score 20 points vs. the Sixers' defense on Saturday. Although he continues to hold down a starting job in Detroit, Singler only provides a trickle of scoring and 3-pointers for deep-league owners.
Jan 19 - 6:27 PM

Kyle Singler scored 20 points with two rebounds, one assist, one steal and six 3-pointers in 26 minutes against the 76ers on Saturday.

He was hot early with three 3-pointers in the first quarter. Singler scored just 17 points combined in his previous three games, so there's little reason to be excited about this one. He's only an option in deep leagues.
Jan 17 - 10:26 PM

Kyle Singler managed just two points on 1-of-4 shooting with two rebounds, one assist and one steal in 25 minutes on Monday.

Singler started to make some noise about a week ago but never really followed up on it. Owners can watch this action from the wire in most standard formats.
Jan 16 - 10:05 PM

Kyle Singler scored eight points on 3-of-7 shooting (including two threes) with four rebounds, one steal and one block over 31 minutes in Friday's win over the Raptors.

Singler has a solid 16-point, six-rebound, five-assist line with three treys on Friday and he's getting starter's minutes at small forward right now. He's never been much more than a low-end play in standard formats, but he could be headed that direction so give him a look.
