Mason Plumlee notched his third double-double of the season on Sunday with 17 points (6-of-9 FGs, 5-of-6 FTs), 11 rebounds, four assists, one steal and one block.

The Blazers have followed up their seven-game losing streak with consecutive wins, improving their record to 6-9, and Plumlee has been a big reason for the recent success. He finished Sunday's game without any turnover in 30 minutes and the solid FT shooting is very encouraging -- though a dreadful shooter for his career, he's at 80.0 percent over the past five games.
Nov 23 - 12:17 AM

Mason Plumlee scored 18 points against the Clippers on Friday with 10 rebounds, one assist and two steals in 39 minutes.

He took it to DeAndre Jordan tonight and protected the paint nicely on defense. Plumlee had his first double-digit scoring game since Nov. 9, so his fantasy owners shouldn't be expecting that to happen too often. He has 10th-round value on the season so far.
Nov 21 - 3:49 AM

Mason Plumlee blocked six shots against the Rockets on Wednesday with nine points, four rebounds, four assists and one turnover.

He blocked James Harden three times and had a career high in blocks. Plumlee's minutes have held steady, but his output hasn't changed much with the team losing Meyers Leonard. He's worth a look in standard leagues if you're OK with sub-par foul shooting.
Nov 18 - 11:27 PM

Mason Plumlee scored nine points with nine rebounds, four assists, two steals and one block on Wednesday.

Meyers Leonard has played a grand total of just five minutes at center all season, so his injury doesn't really affect Plumlee much. If you're fine with sub-par free throw shooting, Plumlee should be owned in standard leagues.
Nov 12 - 2:04 AM

Mason Plumlee had 15 points, seven rebounds, two assists, two steals and two blocks on 5-of-7 shooting in 33 minutes on Monday.

Plumlee has found new life in Portland and is averaging 10.2 points, 8.8 rebounds, 2.4 assists, 1.2 steals and a block per game over his last five, while shooting it at a 60 percent clip from the floor.
Nov 9 - 11:42 PM

Mason Plumlee scored eight points with 12 rebounds, one steal and four fouls in 22 minutes against the Grizzlies on Thursday.

He got into a little bit of foul trouble in the third quarter, so this could have been a better line. Still, that's a pretty solid night against the Grizzlies for a guy who really just scores in the paint. He's strong player to own in points leagues and worth a pickup in standard leagues, assuming you're OK with bad FT%.
Nov 6 - 2:21 AM

Mason Plumlee grabbed a career-high 16 boards against the Jazz on Wednesday with 12 points, two assists, two steals and two blocks.

The bad news is that he made just 2-of-9 from the line to drop him to just 25.0 percent on the season. On the bright side, Plumlee has averages of 10.2 points, 7.6 boards, 2.6 assists, 1.0 steals and 1.0 blocks. If you can stomach the awful foul shooting in a head-to-head format, he is worth owning. He's a strong add in points leagues right now.
Nov 5 - 2:43 AM

Terry Stotts recently praised Mason Plumlee's ability to pass the basketball.

"He sees the floor well," Stotts said. "Him getting to the middle of the court where he can get it to the basket or swing it to the weakside makes him an effective playmaker." Added Plumlee, "I love having the ball in my hands. I love making decisions." Through three games, the Plumdog is averaging 10.0 points, 6.0 rebounds, 3.0 assists, 1.0 steals and 0.7 blocks on 66.7 percent shooting.
Nov 2 - 12:26 PM

Mason Plumlee finished Saturday's game with eight points, seven rebounds, two assists and two blocks, logging 27 minutes in Portland's home loss.

In typical Plumlee style, he made 4-of-4 FGs but was 0-of-4 at the FT line. It's a flaw his fantasy owners knew before drafting him, and he's best suited to points-leagues or a punt-FT% strategy in roto and H2H. One unexpected wrinkle is the Blazers' confidence in Plumlee handling the ball -- he dropped six dimes in the season opener and has three more over the past two games.
Nov 1 - 12:45 AM

Mason Plumlee stood out on an otherwise bad night for the Blazers, scoring 15 points on 7-of-13 shooting with five rebounds and three steals in 26 minutes.

Plumlee showed good energy and only took two free throws (making one). If he keeps it up this can work for owners as a low-end play.
Oct 31 - 3:14 AM

Mason Plumlee played just 19 minutes against the Pelicans on Wednesday during a 112-94 win, scoring seven points with six rebounds and six assists.

The Blazers used him in the high-post and ran a lot of hand-off plays with him giving it to a guard. Plumlee is a very poor foul shooter, but this line is a little worse than it should have been due to some foul trouble. He's still a hold as a low-end fantasy play.
Oct 29 - 1:30 AM

Mason Plumlee is expected to start at center for the Blazers this season according to the Oregonian.

Meyers Leonard is expected to start next to him, while this would mean that Noah Vonleh, Chris Kaman and Ed Davis would come off the bench. Plumlee averaged 11.8 points, 7.6 boards, 1.0 blocks and 1.0 steals in 45 starts for the Nets last season, so he is certainly worthy of a look in the later rounds of drafts. However, keep in mind that he shot just 49.5 percent from the charity stripe last season.
Oct 7 - 4:54 PM

The Trail Blazers picked up Mason Plumlee's fourth-year option on Wednesday.

Plumlee is locked up through the 2016-17 season for Portland, who valued him enough to swap first-round pick Rondae Hollis-Jefferson to acquire him. With minimal competition for playing time at center, Plumlee is a decent late-round source of FG%, rebounds and blocks, assuming you can overlook his horrible FT shooting (49.5 percent last season).

Mason Plumlee took some time during a recent interviews to share some stories about Kevin Garnett.

Plumlee shared some stories of Garnett hazing him in the link below and one of the funnier anecdotes involves Garnett giving away Plumlee's crabcakes. Plumlee won't have to worry about Garnett now that he's in Portland, but he's now hoping to earn himself a starting spot for the Blazers. Plumlee should see an increase in minutes in Portland and is worth a mid-late round in standard fantasy leagues.
