Steven Adams scored eight points with two rebounds and one block in 26 minutes against the Jazz on Saturday.
Foul trouble on Adams was huge as the Jazz did whatever they wanted on the offensive side while he was on the bench. Adams is vastly underrated for this team and you can bet the Jazz will be attacking him to get him in foul trouble after the success they had on him during this easy win. Apr 22 - 12:43 AM

Steven Adams (hand) fouled out of Game 2 with nine points on 4-of-5 shooting, seven rebounds, one assist and one steal in just 22 minutes.

Adams began the game with a wrap around his right wrist and he was icing his arm throughout the game, presumably stemming from a play late in Game 1 when he hit his hand on the rim during a dunk. The injury was obviously bothering him, but coach Billy Donovan again dismissed any concerns and said he'll be fine for Game 3. We'll keep a close eye on his status but it would be shocking if he missed any time.

Steven Adams is reportedly "fine" after hurting his right hand while dunking in the fourth quarter of Game 1 on Sunday.

The Thunder added that there's "nothing to worry about," so we'll take him off the injury report for Wednesday's Game 2 matchup vs. the Jazz. Adams finished Sunday's game with 12 points, seven rebounds and three assists, but he held his own vs. Rudy Gobert and his impact was greater than the stat line suggests.
Apr 15 - 9:50 PM

Steven Adams finished Game 1 with 12 points (4-of-9 FGs, 4-of-6 FTs), seven rebounds and three assists in 37 minutes, helping the Thunder take a 1-0 series lead vs. the Jazz.

The only caveat is that Adams appeared to injure his right hand/wrist after a dunk in the fourth quarter -- we'll add him to the injury report as a precaution, but he should be fine for Game 2. His rebounding and paint presence are a key in this series, though we're not expecting to see any offensive fireworks -- Rudy Gobert led all qualifying players in Defensive Rating this season, allowing 97.7 points per 100 possessions while he was on the court. OKC will be more than satisfied if Adams can play the matchup to a draw.
Apr 15 - 9:14 PM

Steven Adams had seven points, 13 rebounds, zero blocks and missed 5-of-6 free throws in Tuesday's 111-107 loss to the Warriors. He also left the game due to an apparent hip injury, but played through it.

Beat writers were speculating that he had a hip injury that forced him from the game, and while he didn't play all that well tonight, he was able to return to the game and get through it. The Thunder are off until Saturday, when they play the Rockets, so Adams should have plenty of time to get ready for that one. We're not going to put him on the injury list.
Apr 3 - 11:17 PM

Steven Adams came through with a 10-point, 13-rebound double-double in Thursday's loss to the Spurs, adding one assist and two turnovers across 37 minutes.

Adams got off to a slow start, but really picked up his play after halftime, and as per usual, he was excellent on the offensive glass. He did play some solid defense against LaMarcus Aldridge but just didn’t happen to come away with any defensive statistics, which, unfortunately, was his second game in a row without a steal. We’d expect a more productive outing in the defensive department on Friday against the Nuggets.
Mar 29 - 11:19 PM

Steven Adams ended up with 18 points, 10 rebounds and a pair of blocked shots in Sunday's 108-105 home loss against Portland.

Adams certainly did his part in the victory, posting the second-most points on th team behind Russell Westbrook. He has 10 or more points in five straight games, tied for the second-longest such stretch of the season. Adams is averaging 19.9 points and 10.2 rebounds during the impressive five-game span, with both categories well above his season averages. He and his teammates are off until Thursday before kicking off a three-game week in San Antonio.
Mar 25 - 10:28 PM

Steven Adams ended up with 24 points, 12 rebounds, an assist and a steal in 31 minutes Friday against Miami.

Not only did Adams hit a fairly efficient 9-of-13 from the field, but he did a number on Bam Adebayo and Kelly Olynyk on the defensive end. Adebayo was held scoreless on 0-of-5 shooting, and Olynyk had his first single-digit scoring total in five outings. Adams will look to keep it rolling on Sunday afternoon against the red-hot Trail Blazers.
Mar 23 - 11:54 PM

Steven Adams scored 25 points on 10-of-13 shooting Sunday, to go with eight rebounds, four assists, one steal and two turnovers in 33 minutes.

Adams got off to a hot start, hitting his first seven shots within the first 10 minutes of the game, and he also did an incredible job on the offensive glass with 19.2 offensive rebounding rate. He also hit the sidelines a few times, tweaking his ankle in the first and then getting kneed in the lower-region after halftime, but he played through both ailments and should be fine for Tuesday's game in Boston.
Mar 18 - 5:19 PM

Steven Adams has returned to Sunday's game.

They checked out his boys downstairs in the locker room, but he's fine. We'll provide another update after the game.
Mar 18 - 3:06 PM

Steven Adams caught a knee to the lower region during Sunday's game against the Raptors and he's headed to the locker room.

Adams tried to defend a shot at the rim, and his men downstairs took a majority of the punishment via a flying knee from Serge Ibaka. He was down on the floor in a good amount of pain for a few minutes, so for now, we'll be considering him questionable to return.
Mar 18 - 2:50 PM

Steven Adams (hip) was dominant in his return to action on Friday vs. the Clippers, scoring 18 points with 14 rebounds, one assist, three steals and five blocks.

He didn't have restrictions, looked awesome and played 38 minutes, so it's safe to say his hip injury is behind him. Adams is flirting with top-50 value in standard 9-category leagues, making him one of the best value picks of the fantasy basketball season. It took him a while to live up to his contract, but it's easy to see why the Thunder are so high on him.
Mar 16 - 11:32 PM

Steven Adams (hip) is available for Friday's game vs. the Clippers.

He doesn't have restrictions, so expect him to start and play his normal allotment of minutes. He has crushed his ADP this season and his fantasy owners will be relieved to have him in their lineups tonight. Dakari Johnson will return to the bench.
Mar 16 - 6:30 PM

Steven Adams (left hip contusion) is questionable vs. the Clippers on Friday.

This was the expected designation for Adams with him going through non-contact work in practice today. It's a big game for the Thunder, so Adams should have a decent chance to play. If not, that means more Jerami Grant and Patrick Patterson.
Mar 15 - 5:40 PM

Steven Adams (left hip contusion) went through non-contact portions of practice on Thursday.

He missed Tuesday's action due to an injury on Monday, and we haven't received much info besides that. Hip contusions can be tricky and Skal Labissiere's fantasy owners can tell you first hand that players can miss a week. If he's out, Jerami Grant would likely be the biggest winner.
