Steven Adams scored nine points with one rebound and two turnovers in 22 minutes vs. the Warriors on Monday.
This was one of his worst games of the season. Adams managed to hit 4-of-5 shots, but finished 1-of-4 from the line and had a +/- rating of -23. He was very solid in his previous five games and he won't get many tougher matchups than the Warriors, so his owners should cut him some slack. He should be much better vs. the 76ers on Wednesday.

Steven Adams scored 16 points with 13 rebounds, three assists, two steals and one block in 35 minutes against the Kings on Saturday.

He looks like he's back. Adams is getting set up for easy shots these days and has made 67.6 percent from the field in his last five, averaging 11.8 points, 7.8 boards 1.2 assists, 1.6 steals and 0.6 blocks. He's also been much better on the defensive end and turned in his first March double-double in this win. Expect Adams to improve and flirt with mid-round value.
Mar 18 - 6:24 PM

Steven Adams admitted that he has "definitely" struggled on the defensive end.

The Thunder are 16-2 this season when Adams posts a defensive rating of 100 or lower, but his defensive rating during the Thunder's four-game losing streak is a 118.5. "It’s just a communication thing, a timing thing," Adams said. "Obviously, I’m going to say I’m playing bad if anything goes wrong, if any mistake happens." He will look to bounce back vs. the Spurs on Thursday, but keep in mind that San Antonio has allowed the third fewest fantasy points to centers this season.

Steven Adams was held in check vs. the Blazers, scoring four points with three rebounds in 29 minutes.

He made his only shot attempt of the night and finished 2-of-5 from the line, but Russell Westbrook soaked up all the usage tonight and scored 58 points on 21-of-39 shooting. Adams has been lousy since the All-Star break other than a 19-point game on Sunday, but bouncing back against the Spurs on Thursday isn't going to be easy -- the Spurs have allowed the third fewest fantasy points to centers this season. Adams was poked in the eye tonight and was sporting a wrap after the game, but we'd be surprised if he actually misses time.
Mar 7 - 11:05 PM

Steven Adams made 8-of-10 field goals and 3-of-5 free throws to finish Sunday's road loss with 19 points, five rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block in 24 minutes.

In his previous three games, Adams took a mere 13 shots in 81 minutes of action, so it was nice to see him get more involved offensively tonight. He posted mid-round value through the All-Star break but has been lousy since then, so hopefully tonight's solid effort will get him back on track.
Mar 5 - 11:09 PM

Steven Adams scored two points with six rebounds, one steal and five fouls in 24 minutes against the Blazers on Thursday.

His playing time has actually dropped in each of his last three games Adams played 32.6 minutes per game in January and February, but that figures to trend down with Enes Kanter and Taj Gibson in the mix. Adams is still obviously worth owning, but his owners should be looking for mid-round value going forward.
Mar 3 - 1:26 AM

Steven Adams hit 1-of-6 shots for two points, six rebounds, a steal and two blocks in 27 minutes of Tuesday's 109-106 win over the Jazz.

Adams had scored in double figures in three straight games and double-doubled in his previous two coming in, but got a dose of Gobert-itis from Rudy Gobert's strong defense tonight. Look for him to bounce back on Thursday against the Trail Blazers and new center Jusuf Nurkic.
Feb 28 - 11:48 PM

Steven Adams scored 20 points with 13 rebounds, one assist, one steal and two blocks in 39 minutes against the Cavs on Thursday.

That's his third 20-10 game of the season and he's seen a slight bump in output since Enes Kanter (arm) went down. In those seven games, Adams averaged 12.7 points, 10.7 boards, 1.0 blocks and 0.7 steals. He's coasting as a mid-round player.
Feb 9 - 11:05 PM

Steven Adams went to work on the offensive glass on Sunday, grabbing nine of his 13 boards on the offensive end to go with seven points, one assist, two steals and two turnovers in 38 minutes.

Adams hauled in four offensive rebounds on OKC's first possession, and over the past two games he's brought down 20 boards on the offensive glass. Unsurprisingly, OKC is now on a two-game winning streak. Adams isn't the most exciting guy to own, but he's been a steady mid-round guy all year long, and there's no reason to expect a sudden drop-off in production.
Feb 5 - 6:44 PM

Steven Adams scored 16 points with 13 rebounds, two assists, one steal and two blocks in 44 minutes against the Grizzlies on Friday.

The Thunder just don't have another reliable big man right now, so there are just so many minutes going to Adams these days. If not for garbage time, Adams would likely be looking at minutes 35 minutes per game. He should be putting up some big numbers without Enes Kanter (arm).
Feb 4 - 1:22 AM

Steven Adams had a night to forget on Wednesday, scoring eight points with six rebounds while making 3-of-7 shots in 29 minutes vs. the Bulls.

In fairness, the was the second of back-to-back games for Adams and the Bulls are one of the stingier teams vs. opposing centers (10th-fewest points allowed, 9th-fewest rebounds allowed). Adams has been playing great and the absence of Enes Kanter can only help his playing time, so owners should just brush off tonight's performance.
Feb 2 - 12:31 AM

Steven Adams hit 7-of-13 shots for 16 points, 12 rebounds, a steal and a block in 34 minutes of Tuesday's 108-94 loss to the Thunder.

Adams has been back from his concussion for five games and after a slow start with nine points, six boards and four blocks in the first one, he's double-doubled in two of his last four games and is averaging 13.4 points, 9.2 rebounds and 2.0 blocks on 56 percent shooting over his last five. He's good to go.
Jan 31 - 11:34 PM

Steven Adams scored seven points on 3-of-4 shooting Sunday (1-of-1 from the stripe), to go with 10 rebounds, one assist, one block and four turnovers in 27 minutes.

We'd expect Adams' minutes to be higher than this on most nights moving forward with Enes Kanter (arm) out of commission for the next 6-8 weeks, but he struggled a bit with foul trouble in this one, and it wasn't really a great matchup for him. Adams is quietly producing fifth-round value on the year with averages of 12.1 points, 7.6 boards, 1.2 steals, 1.1 blocks and 2.0 turnovers per game on 59.3 percent shooting from the field and 71.2 percent from the stripe.
Jan 29 - 6:18 PM

Steven Adams scored 15 points with seven rebounds in 37 minutes against the Mavs on Thursday.

It should be the Steven Adams show at the five. He played 20 minutes at center in the second half and should be in the upper 30s while Enes Kanter (arm) is out. On top of that, Adams gets a 1.8 rebounding rate bump and a 3.9 usage rate bump when Kanter is off the floor -- that lineup is only used for 7.8 minutes per game. Adams should continue to flirt with top-50 value this season.
Jan 27 - 12:11 AM

Steven Adams feasted against the Pelicans on Wednesday, scoring 20 points with 11 rebounds, three assists, one steal and four blocks in 32 minutes.

It's just his second 20-10 game of the season with the Pelicans interior defense not showing up in this game. Adams just returned to action back on Monday, but he's hit the ground running with four blocks in each. He's been one of the steals of fantasy drafts with his fifth-round value on the year. There's no reason to think he'll slow down going forward.
