Mason Plumlee filled the stat sheet against the Bucks on Saturday, scoring 10 points with 10 rebounds, four assists, two steals and three blocks in 33 minutes.
He's filling the stat sheet like only a few can. In fact, Plumlee is the fastest Blazer to tally 150 rebounds and 100 assists (23 games) since Scottie Pippen in 1999-2000 (22 games). Plumlee leads all NBA centers in assists per game and has seen his rebounding and scoring show a slight uptick lately. If you take the free throw woes out of the equation, Plumlee has been a must-start option in even super shallow leagues. Dec 7 - 11:14 PM

Date:

Mason Plumlee scored 12 points on 5-of-12 shooting with 14 rebounds, eight assists and one steal in 31 minutes vs. the Pelicans on Friday.

Plumlee became the first Blazer with 12+ points, 14+ rebounds and 8+ assists since Arvydas Sabonis on Nov. 24, 1997. The assists were a career-high for Plumlee and he's shooting an impressive 66.7 percent from the field over his last three games. The only thing holding him back right now is his free throw percentage, as he's hit just 6-of-13 (46.2 percent) from the line over his last five games.
Nov 26 - 1:12 AM

Mason Plumlee matched a season-high 19 points against the Cavs on Wednesday, adding four rebounds, three assists and one block in 23 minutes.

It's tied for the most points he's scored as a Blazer, as well. Plumlee's minutes were on the upswing before this slight downtick, but the Blazers needed to pull off a comeback and put some 3-point shooters out there in the second half. Plumlee's value is just fine as a guy hanging around top-100 value.
Nov 23 - 11:03 PM

Mason Plumlee double-doubled vs. the Pelicans on Friday with 13 points, 12 rebounds and seven assists in 34 minutes.

He shot 6-of-10 from the field, but failed to record a block or a steal for the third time this season. His passing has come a long way this season and he's recorded seven assists in three out of his last five games, averaging 9.0 points, 8.4 rebounds, 4.4 assists, 0.9 blocks and 0.9 steals in that span. It will be interesting to see his minutes take a hit when Festus Ezeli (knee) returns, but Plumlee is a solid asset right now.
Nov 18 - 11:45 PM

Mason Plumlee had 11 points, nine rebounds, three assists and one block vs. the Nuggets on Sunday, hitting 5-of-7 FGs and 1-of-3 FTs.

The Blazers are giving up 11.9 offensive rebounds per game, fifth-most in the league, and tonight the Nuggets built a 59-44 advantage on the boards, yet it still resulted in a Blazers victory. The deficits are hardly an indictment of Plumlee, since he ranks second on the team in rebounding despite playing just 26.5 minutes per game. His role is safe, at least until Festus Ezeli (knee) gets back on the court.
Nov 14 - 12:32 AM

Mason Plumlee scored eight points with seven rebounds, seven assists, two steals and two blocks in 35 minutes against the Kings on Friday.

This line sums up Plumlee pretty well. After the game, Damian Lillard talked about how Plumlee is such an important last line of defense for the way the Blazers attack on the outside. He has a little more value in points leagues and DFS, but he's a low-end asset in standard leagues.
Nov 12 - 2:46 AM

Mason Plumlee played 21 minutes against the Suns on Wednesday with four points, 12 rebounds, four assists and two blocks.

He lost some playing time to Meyers Leonard, which is unlikely to happen the rest of the way. Plumlee has been a big part of the offense to help set up the guards, so he's locked in to his role. He's not a great free throw shooter, so his upside is going to be capped.
Nov 3 - 1:57 AM

Mason Plumlee is expected to become a restricted free agent next summer.

The Blazers have until Oct. 31 to negotiate a contract extension, but it doesn't sound like the two sides are close to a deal. As a restricted free agent, the Blazers will be able to match any opposing offers for Plumlee. He's averaging 9.5 points, 4.5 boards, 2.5 assists and 1.5 blocks through the first two games of the season.
Oct 29 - 11:30 AM

Mason Plumlee hit 7-of-9 shots and finished with 17 points, eight rebounds, four assists and three blocks in 31 minutes of Thursday's loss to the Clippers.

He only hit 3-of-6 free throws, but played very well tonight. The assists were especially impressive and it's becoming clear he's one of the best passing big men in the league. He played just 15 minutes on Tuesday against the Jazz, finishing with two points and one rebound, but we're hoping you didn't give up on him too quickly after tonight's bounce back.
Oct 28 - 1:43 AM

Mason Plumlee played just 15 minutes on Tuesday vs. the Jazz, finishing with two points, one rebound and one assist.

He looked like a stud in the preseason and he’s locked down the starting job, but he struggled with foul trouble against Rudy Gobert. Plumlee is a nice source of rebounds and is usually good for a few assists, but it’s going to be interesting to see what happens when the Blazers add another center to mix in Festus Ezeli (knee). Give Plumlee another chance.
Oct 26 - 12:38 AM

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.
