Mason Plumlee notched eight points, 10 rebounds, seven assists and one steal in just 24 minutes vs. the Jazz on Wednesday.
Plumlee had an assist rate of 21.6 last season, which ranked third among PF/Cs who played at least 25 minutes per game -- only Draymond Green and Tim Duncan were ahead of him. He hasn't missed a game in the past two seasons and only needs 25 minutes to be a low-end fantasy option, yet he can routinely be taken with a flier pick on draft day. Oct 19 - 11:36 PM

Mason Plumlee said he's developing his jumper.

He only made 28.1 percent of his jumpers last season, which accounts for just 32.1 percent of his shot total. The Blazers are going to go smaller 1-4, so Plumlee will face stiffer competition for minutes at the five from Meyers Leonard, Ed Davis and Festus Ezeli. He's only a late-round flier with a somewhat low upside.
Sep 26 - 5:43 PM

Mason Plumlee scored 12 points with 15 rebounds, three assists, one steal and five turnovers against the Warriors on Monday.

He's been sub-par in this series, so this was by far his best game on the stat sheet in this round. Plumlee was able to boost his averages to 8.0 points, 11.3 boards, 3.8 assists and 1.0 blocks in his last four. After being blocked eight times in the first three games, he was only blocked once. Plumlee should be good again for Game 5.
May 10 - 2:07 AM

Mason Plumlee scored five points with seven rebounds, two assists and one block in 17 minutes against the Warriors on Saturday.

He was in foul trouble to keep his playing time down. Still, the Warriors have his number around the basket with eight blocks of Plumlee in just three games. That explains why he's just 4-of-19 from the field in this series. Plumlee should still be fine for Game 4.
May 7 - 11:41 PM

Mason Plumlee struggled in Game 2 vs. the Warriors on Tuesday, scoring six points with 11 rebounds, four assists, one block and six turnovers in 28 minutes.

He was just 2-of-6 from the field tonight after going 0-of-7 in Game 1. Plumlee's playmaking ability has improved tremendously, but he was forcing the issue too much tonight. He should be much better in Game 3 in Portland on Saturday, but Plumlee has quickly learned that the Warriors' interior defense is no joke.
May 4 - 2:17 AM

Mason Plumlee racked up 13 rebounds, six assists and two blocks in 25 minutes on Sunday, but he scored only one point on 0-of-7 shooting in Portland's Game 1 defeat.

Plumlee caught fire vs. the Clippers in the first round and his ability to contribute across the board helps take the sting out of this Game 1 scoring dud. He wasn't alone in his offensive struggles tonight, as Portland's starting unit was a combined 23-of-75 from the field (30.7 percent). It's easier said than done, but they'll need to be much more efficient to even the series at 1-1 on Tuesday.
May 1 - 6:27 PM

Mason Plumlee scored nine points with 14 rebounds, four assists, two blocks and one steal against the Clippers on Friday.

He went blow for blow with DeAndre Jordan in the paint. In the last five games of this series, Plumlee averaged 8.8 points, 14.8 boards, 6.8 assists, 1.2 steals, 1.2 blocks and 2.0 turnovers. The Blazers' trade with the Nets for basically Rondae Hollis-Jefferson has worked out nicely for them. He'll be very important against the Warriors.
Apr 30 - 1:36 AM

Mason Plumlee scored two points with 14 rebounds, 10 assists and three blocks in 30 minutes against the Clippers on Monday.

That's two huge games as the Blazers are running a ton of offense through Plumlee right now. He is coming off a 21-board, nine-dime game in Game 3. Plumlee was losing some playing time to Ed Davis to end the regular season, but he's cleared the 30-minute mark in each of his last three games.
Apr 26 - 1:48 AM

Mason Plumlee grabbed 21 boards against the Clippers on Saturday, adding six points, nine assists, one steal and two turnovers in 33 minutes.

His 21 boards are the highest total in this playoffs. His nine assists are the highest total among Blazers centers since Arvydas Sabonis in 1989. That's also two great games in a row with a 17-point, 10-board, seven-dime game on Wednesday, so Plumlee looks like a nice DFS target right now.
Apr 24 - 1:32 AM

Mason Plumlee scored a personal postseason-high 17 points during Wednesday's Game 2 defeat, making 5-of-7 FGs and 7-of-9 FTs with 10 boards, seven assists, two steals and one block.

Plumlee also committed just one turnover in 31 minutes. He was tremendous after the first quarter and kept his team close until the fourth, but it speaks volumes that he tied Damian Lillard for the team-lead in scoring. The Blazers went 0-16 when scoring 95 points or fewer during the regular season, and they were held to just 81 points tonight, so coach Terry Stotts will go back to the drawing board for Game 3 in Portland on Saturday.
Apr 21 - 1:35 AM

Mason Plumlee had an awful night on Sunday, scoring four points on 1-of-6 FGs and 2-of-2 FTs with five rebounds and zero assists, steals or blocks.

Plumlee played 19 minutes and part of tonight's dud was due to foul trouble -- it didn't help that Portland trailed by 15 points entering the fourth quarter. The Clippers struggled to rebound as a team this season, ranking 29th in the league, and the Blazers will need more from Plumlee to exploit their advantage on the glass.
Apr 18 - 1:48 AM

Mason Plumlee scored 15 points with 15 rebounds, two assists, one steal and two blocks against the Wolves on Saturday.

Ed Davis has been overshadowing Plumlee a little lately, but he was able to stuff the stat sheet. Plumlee did not have a double-double in any of his previous nine games. He's cooled off and is only a borderline player to own. He only has one game left, though.
Apr 10 - 1:23 AM

Mason Plumlee nearly double-doubled vs. the Kings on Tuesday, scoring 12 points with nine rebounds.

He was solid tonight going up against DeMarcus Cousins, adding three assists and three blocks before fouling out in 27 minutes. He also hit all four of his free throws, but he's a low-end big to own in standard leagues, especially with just three games left on the schedule for the Blazers.
Apr 6 - 12:33 AM

Mason Plumlee finished Sunday's loss to the Warriors with eight points, six assists, four rebounds, one steal and one block.

It's a solid line that's even more impressive considering Plumlee played only 19 minutes, his lowest playing time in Portland's past dozen games. Golden State loves to go small and they were missing Andrew Bogut tonight, with Festus Ezeli limited after a long absence, so owners should expect to see Plumlee back in the mid-20s vs. the Kings on Tuesday.
Apr 3 - 11:25 PM

Mason Plumlee played solid vs. the Heat on Saturday, scoring 17 points with eight rebounds, five assists, one block and two steals in 27 minutes.

He was an efficient 8-of-10 from the field, and this was the most points he's scored since Jan. 6. Plumlee has had his ups and downs this season, but he's averaging 10.2 points, 6.6 rebounds, 2.6 assists, 0.6 blocks and 1.2 steals over his last five games, shooting 52.8 percent from the field. The Blazers play again on Sunday vs. the Warriors, but they will only have three games next week.
