Steven Adams went 7-of-11 from the field, scoring 14 points and grabbing 10 boards in 31 minutes against the Knicks.
Adams recorded his third double-double in the month of November. He is averaging 31.2 minutes per game this season and accounts for 25.4 percent of the Thunder’s rebounds. Despite a low usage rate, his contributions under the rim, his field goal percentage, and ability to block shots, make him a decent center option in fantasy leagues. Nov 28 - 10:56 PM

Steven Adams was saddled with foul trouble for most of Friday's game in Denver, finishing with seven points, five rebounds, two steals and one assist in 30 minutes.

Adams scored 20 points on Tuesday and he's dismissed concerns about his injured right hand, so owners just have to shrug off tonight's quiet performance. His foul trouble was part of the reason the Nuggets scored 62 points in the paint, but OKC overcame the disadvantage to steal a 132-129 win in overtime. Adams, who has returned top-75 value in 8-cat and 9-cat, draws a tough matchup vs. Andre Drummond on Saturday.

Steven Adams scored a career-high 20 points on Tuesday vs. the Lakers, shooting 9-of-13 from the field with six rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in 31 minutes.

Adams is playing at less than 100 percent with a banged-up right thumb, but he said he's "coming along" and that he prefers to not wear the wrap on his hand. While his production in the box score has slipped in the past couple weeks, Adams came into Tuesday's game allowing just 95.9 points per 100 possessions, the fifth-best defensive rating in the NBA. He should be a nice mid-round player the rest of the way.

Steven Adams scored six points with six rebounds, one assist and three blocks in 33 minutes against the Rockets on Wednesday.

He had a hand injury earlier in the season, but he said that's not an excuse for some recent offensive struggles. "Bottom line is I sucked," Adams said. He had some trouble finishing around the basket. Adams' minutes are on the rise, playing 33 per game over his last five. His output in defensive stats and surprisingly making 88.5 percent from the line have made him a mid-round player.
Nov 16 - 11:49 PM

Steven Adams hit just 1-of-3 shots for four points, 11 rebounds, a steal and a block in 29 minutes of Monday's loss to the Pistons.

The Thunder are reeling and losers for four straight games, while Adams has been hit or miss in five straight games. He had six points and six boards on Nov. 7, 14 points and 12 boards on Nov. 9, six points and five boards on Friday, 13 points and 10 boards on Sunday, and then tonight's dud. That averages out to just 8.6 points, 8.8 rebounds, 1.4 steals and 1.0 blocks over his last five, but there's a good chance those numbers will start to rise when he starts putting up consistent production in his 30-plus minutes a game on most nights.
Nov 14 - 10:39 PM

Steven Adams' thumb injury didn't slow him down vs. the Raptors on Wednesday as he posted 14 points, 12 rebounds, two steals, one block and one assist in 35 minutes.

Adams briefly left Tuesday's game but the injury was never considered serious. OKC recently locked him up on a massive four-year deal worth at least $100 million, and so far he's rewarding their faith with averages of 10.3 points, 8.0 rebounds, 1.0 assists, 2.1 steals and 1.1 blocks per game, while knocking down over 90 percent of his free throws. He was 8-of-8 at the stripe tonight and the improvement looks real, even if a drop-off is inevitable.
Nov 9 - 11:12 PM

Steven Adams (thumb) will start Wednesday vs. the Raptors.

Adams banged his thumb during Monday's win over Miami, but he only left the game briefly, and he'll be operating with his regular minutes allotment tonight. Feel free to get him active.
Nov 9 - 6:28 PM

Steven Adams simply "banged his thumb" on Monday vs. the Heat and is available to return.

He was only in the locker room for a few minutes before quickly returning to the bench. He's good to go and we'll provide an update after the game.
Nov 7 - 8:43 PM

Steven Adams (hand) went to the locker room on Monday vs. the Heat and is questionable to return.

It's his right hand, so it's worth noting that he broke a bone in the same hand a year and a half ago and had surgery. Adams was only in the locker room for a few minutes before returning to the bench, so that's a very good sign. Stay tuned.
Nov 7 - 8:31 PM

Steven Adams scored 14 points with eight rebounds, two assists, two steals and two blocks in 28 minutes against the Wolves on Saturday.

He had one of the worst defensive games of the season, but obviously it didn't matter too much with OKC winning by 20. On the other hand, Adams has picked it up on offense with 11-plus points in three of his last four. He also has two blocks in three of his last four, too. He's trending up after a slow start.
Nov 5 - 8:53 PM

Steven Adams played 24 minutes against the Warriors on Thursday with 11 points, four rebounds, one assist, two steals and two blocks.

Despite OKC getting dominated tonight, Adams actually was a plus-seven in plus-minus tonight. He's locked in for big minutes and should post plenty of boards and blocks to go with around 10 points per game.
Nov 4 - 1:30 AM

Steven Adams grabbed 11 rebounds vs. the Clippers on Wednesday, but he scored only two points on 1-of-3 shooting with one assist, one steal, three turnovers and zero blocks in 31 minutes.

Russell Westbrook has a usage rate north of 40 percent, so there will be nights when guys like Adams simply don't get many offensive touches. It didn't help that he was facing DeAndre Jordan tonight, and owners can expect a more well-rounded line vs. the Warriors on Friday.
Nov 3 - 1:48 AM

Steven Adams and the Thunder are reportedly finalizing a four-year, $100 million contract extension.

OKC isn't taking any chances on the new CBA as they lock up their core for the long haul -- Adams' deal comes on the heels of a four-year, $84 million extension for Victor Oladipo. Adams was great in the postseason last year and he'll likely be in the conversation for Most Improved Player this season, so it's easy to see why the Thunder are investing heavily in his future.
Oct 31 - 4:32 PM

The Thunder and Steven Adams are making "significant progress" on a 4-year, $100M contract extension.

The Thunder are also in talks with Victor Oladipo on a contract extension. The deadline is tonight, so we should know more in the coming hours. After seeing the money that players like Timofey Mozgov and Ian Mahinmi got this summer, it's a no-brainer for OKC to extend a promising young talent such as Adams.
Oct 31 - 1:59 PM

Steven Adams posted his first double-double of the season on Sunday with 14 points, 12 rebounds, two assists, three steals and two blocks.

Adams made 6-of-12 FGs and 2-of-2 FTs in 30 minutes, and it was nice to see him block a few shots after failing to do so in OKC's first two games. Adams averaged a mere 0.5 steals per game last year but he's swiping 2.3 per game this year -- it's likely an early-season mirage, but his fantasy owners aren't complaining.
