Steven Adams (concussion) was limited to non-contact work on Sunday, and his status remains unclear for Monday's game in Utah.
Adams did travel with the team for their road game, which is a good sign, but owners will have to wait until shootaround for another update. OKC has four games next week, so even if Adams sits on Monday he could still have a productive slate. Jan 22 - 6:03 PM

Steven Adams (concussion) is traveling to Utah for Monday's game against the Jazz.

There's no word that he's officially cleared the league mandated concussion protocol testing, but him traveling with the team is an encouraging sign. Owners can expect to get another update following Monday morning's shootaround, and if he is able to get back to the court, Jerami Grant would more than likely return to the bench.

Steven Adams (concussion) is still in the league's concussion protocol.

It's possible he won't travel for Monday's game and the team won't know until tomorrow. The game is in Utah, so you can bet Enes Kanter will be getting big minutes regardless. Domantas Sabonis and Jerami Grant have stepped up, as well.
Jan 21 - 2:26 PM

Steven Adams (concussion) has not yet been cleared to return to play, as he is still in concussion protocol.

Adams has missed each of the Thunder's last two games. Fortunately, OKC doesn't play again until Monday vs. Utah, which gives Adams a few extra days to recuperate. Check back in over the weekend for an update on his status.

Updating a previous report, Steven Adams has officially been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Warriors.

He's still going through the league mandated concussion protocol testing, and he won't be able to return until he clears all the necessary steps. Because the Warriors like to play small, Jerami Grant could be looking at another start sans Adams, and Enes Kanter should see his minutes closer to the 30-minute mark. After Wednesday, the Thunder don't play again until Monday vs. the Jazz, so this might only end up being a two-game absence for Adams.

Steven Adams (concussion) is being listed as out for Wednesday's game against the Warriors.

To be clear, this report is coming from the game notes, which are notoriously unreliable, so we'd recommend checking back for another update following Wednesday morning's shootaround. Jerami Grant got the start in his place on Monday night vs. the Clippers, although the game was a massive blowout, so head coach Billy Donovan might want to rethink that strategy. If Adams can't give it a go on Wednesday, both Grant and Enes Kanter should see an uptick in minutes. Stay tuned.
Jan 17 - 3:27 PM

Steven Adams has been diagnosed with a concussion and he will not play Monday vs. the Clippers.

Adams won't be able to return until he clears the league-mandated concussion protocol testing, and whether or not Enes Kanter moves into the starting five, he's sure to be flirting with minutes in the 30s so he could have a huge game tonight. For now, we'll be considering Adams questionable for Wednesday's game in Golden State.
Jan 16 - 2:58 PM

Steven Adams (head) scored six points with four rebounds, one assist and one steal in 19 minutes against the Kings on Sunday.

Adams left the game after hitting his head on the floor and never returned, as he was being evaluated for a concussion. The Thunder play against the Clippers on Monday, so if Adams did indeed suffer a concussion, he will almost certainly miss that contest. If that is the case, Enes Kanter will see a boost and becomes an enticing DFS value play.
Jan 16 - 12:42 AM

Steven Adams (head) will not return to Sunday's game against the Kings.

He is being evaluated for concussion-like symptoms and will miss the remainder of tonight's game. Enes Kanter will move into the starting lineup and see a boost in production, if Adams misses any time.
Jan 15 - 10:52 PM

Steven Adams scored 12 points with eight rebounds, one assist, two blocks and one steal in 39 minutes against the Grizzlies on Wednesday.

The Thunder went with the big lineup with Adams and Enes Kanter for 21 minutes tonight and it worked with a +24.9 net rating. It's also been successful all season with a +13.2 net rating in 260 total minutes. As for Adams himself, his minutes are on the rise with 34 per game in January. He's a solid mid-round player in standard leagues.
Jan 11 - 11:56 PM

Steven Adams went off for 20 points on 11-of-14 shooting in Monday's easy win over the Bulls.

He torched Robin Lopez all night and added five rebounds, two assists and one block in 34 minutes. This was his fifth game with 20+ points this season, an impressive number when you consider that he failed to reach 20 points in his previous three seasons. Adams has a tough matchup with Memphis on Wednesday, a team that held him to six points on 1-of-9 shooting in their last meeting.
Jan 9 - 11:09 PM

Steven Adams kept rolling vs. Charlotte on Wednesday, scoring 18 points on 8-of-10 shooting with 12 rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block.

Adams even went 2-of-2 from the line and he did his damage in 36 minutes, compared to his season average of 29.5. He benefited from the absence of Cody Zeller tonight, and the Hornets' big men simply couldn't handle his size and athleticism, but this is no fluke -- including tonight's game, Adams' field goal percentage has drifted north of 60 percent.
Jan 4 - 9:57 PM

Steven Adams hit 9-of-11 shots and both of his free throws for 20 points, eight rebounds, two assists, a steal and three blocks for one of his best games of the season, which was a 98-94 loss to the Bucks on Monday.

Adams was fantastic and has been shooting lights out since going 1-of-9 on Dec. 29, hitting 13-of-16 shots over his last two games. He's also scored in double digits in four of his last five, and tonight's 20-point game was his fourth game of the season with at least that many points. And two of those have come in his last five outings. Ride him while he's hot, but keep in mind he had a good matchup against John Henson and Greg Monroe tonight.
Jan 2 - 10:30 PM

Steven Adams finished 1-of-9 from the field and 4-of-8 from the line for six points against the Grizzlies on Thursday.

Yikes. This gave him a true shooting percentage of 24.0, his worst mark of the season by far. He at least salvaged his line with 15 rebounds, two assists and two blocks, but also turned the ball over three times. This was a tough matchup for Adams as the Grizzlies have the No. 1 ranked defense in the league, but Saturday's matchup with DeAndre Jordan and the Clippers won't be much easier.
Thu, Dec 29, 2016 10:49:00 PM

Steven Adams scored 15 points on 7-of-10 shooting in Tuesday's win over the Heat.

He did a great job on Hassan Whiteside, but unfortunately he got into some foul trouble and only played 23 minutes. He made the most of his limited minutes and grabbed eight rebounds with two blocks and an assist, and he hit his only free throw of the game. He will have a tough matchup against the Grizzlies on Thursday as they have the best defensive rating in the NBA.
