Steven Adams was a monster during Wednesday's 100-95 win in Indiana, putting up 23 points on 11-of-16 shooting, 13 rebounds (nine offensive), one assist and one block.
Adams is in the midst of his best NBA season, recording career-highs in scoring (13.7 points per game), percentages (64.6% FGs, 64.0% FTs), rebounds (8.5) and steals (1.3). In addition to bone-crunching screens and a whopping 4.7 offensive rebounds per game, Adams is adding a respectable 1.0 blocks. He's eradicating preseason expectations as a top-50 fantasy value, and there's no reason to suspect he'll slow down. Dec 13 - 10:26 PM

Steven Adams tied for a team-high 21 points in Saturday's overtime victory on the road against the Grizzlies.

Adams was a very efficient 7-of-11 from the field while adding nine rebounds and a blocked shot across 43 minutes. He is shooting an impressive 70.6 percent (41-of-58) through five games in the month of December, averaging 19.8 points, 9.6 rebounds and 1.0 steals per game. Adams continues to crush his average draft position thanks to his outstanding work on the boards and good shooting percentage, although he continues to struggle at the free-throw line.
Dec 10 - 12:09 AM

Steven Adams hit 9-of-10 shots for 20 points, nine rebounds, a steal and no blocks in 33 minutes of Tuesday's win over the Jazz.

Adams had his way with a gimpy Rudy Gobert and Derrick Favors tonight and is having a great season. And he's on fire right now, averaging 22 points and 8.3 boards on a ridiculous 28-of-34 shooting (82 percent) over his last three games. However, he has just one block in those games, but they should be coming again soon.
Dec 5 - 11:16 PM

Steven Adams made 8-of-13 FGs and 3-of-6 FTs to finish Sunday's home win vs. the Spurs with 19 points, 10 boards, three steals, one assist and one block.

Adams was coming off an 11-of-11 shooting performance on Saturday, for a career-high 27 points, and the efficiency is a big reason he's holding top-50 fantasy value in most formats this season. He grabbed four of his boards on the offensive glass tonight and continues to crush his average draft position despite the anchor in FT%.
Dec 3 - 11:27 PM

Steven Adams made all 11 shots from the field and all five from the line for a career-high 27 points during a 111-107 win over the Wolves on Friday, adding six rebounds, one steal and one block in 32 minutes.

He did all of this with a jammed thumb on his left hand and he had a brace on it. The key to this line was Paul George feeding Adams with six dimes coming from PG, and he only had two dunks in this game to go with seven layups and two hook shots. He probably doesn't get enough credit for helping OKC become one of the better defenses in the NBA, and he probably doesn't get enough credit for being a top-40 player in standard leagues so far. It's Funaki season.
Dec 2 - 12:07 AM

Steven Adams recorded his second consecutive double-double on Friday, finishing with 12 points, 12 rebounds, two steals, and two blocks on 6-of-10 from the field.

Adams played 38 minutes and was a plus-five on his time on the floor, so you can't blame him for another tough Thunder loss. Impressively, Adams also pulled down six offensive rebounds, providing a nice boost to those in leagues where OREB is a counting category.
Nov 24 - 11:51 PM

Steven Adams notched his first double-double of the month on Wednesday with 14 points, 12 rebounds and two steals in 37 minutes.

Adams hit 4-of-8 field goals and 6-of-8 free throws. He's shooting a respectable 70.6 percent from the line this year, but that's predictably trending down -- he hasn't finished above 61.1% in his career. It's a caveat fantasy owners will happily live with to get his rebounds (7.9), blocks (1.3), steals (1.3) and fantastic FG percentage (67.0% on 8.2 attempts).
Nov 22 - 11:50 PM

Steven Adams (calf) was able to play in Friday's game San Antonio, finishing with 16 points, eight rebounds and two blocked shots.

Adams was very productive from the floor, hitting 6-of-8, although he did struggle by making just 4-of-7 from the charity stripe. With Adams back in action, Dakari Johnson was limited to just three minutes off the bench, while Jerami Grant saw just 14 minutes of run. Adams will look to keep up the good work on Monday at New Orleans, and he might catch a break by not having to face Anthony Davis (concussion).
Nov 18 - 12:18 AM

Steven Adams (calf) will play Friday night vs. San Antonio.

Adams had missed three straight games. Coach Billy Donovan said that Adams will not have a specific minutes limit, but that Adams' playing time would be dependant upon how he felt during the game. With Adams back in the mix, Dakari Johnson will get bumped to the bench, and Jerami Grant will see his minutes reduced as well.
Nov 17 - 12:06 PM

Steven Adams (calf) will not suit up for Wednesday's game against the Bulls.

This will be Adams' third straight game on the sidelines, but he was reportedly moving around well at shootaround, so maybe he'll be able to get back out there for Friday's game in San Antonio. Dakari Johnson will earn another start tonight sans Adams and Jerami Grant should see an uptick in minutes.
Nov 15 - 6:30 PM

Steven Adams (calf) was seen going through some 1-on-1 work following Wednesday morning's shootaround, but he remains doubtful to play against the Bulls.

While Adams likely won't be returning to the court tonight, Thunder reporter Royce Young said he was moving around well at shootaround and looked to be "close to returning." Dakari Johnson figures to earn another start sans Adams, but he can only be viewed as a low-end streamer in deep leagues.
Nov 15 - 12:25 PM

Steven Adams (calf) did not practice on Tuesday and is doubtful to take the court for Wednesday's matchup against the Bulls.

Adams has spent the past two games on the sidelines, and him still not being able to get through practice isn't a great sign. Owners shouldn't expect him to play Wednesday, and for now, we'll be considering him questionable for Friday's game in San Antonio as well. Dakari Johnson should continue to start in his absence, and he's someone to think about as a low-end streamer in deep leagues.
Nov 14 - 2:22 PM

Steven Adams (calf) will remain on the sidelines for Sunday's game against the Mavs and Dakari Johnson will earn the start in his place.

Johnson produced nine points, one rebound, two assists, one steal, one block and one turnover through 23 minutes as a starter on Friday, so he could be someone to consider as a low-end streamer in deep leagues. After Sunday, the Thunder don't play again until Wednesday, so maybe Adams will be able to get back to the court for that one.
Nov 12 - 5:28 PM

Steven Adams (calf) is listed as out for Sunday against the Mavs.

He did not play on Friday and it was Dakari Johnson stepping up against the Clippers. Considering the matchup against DeAndre Jordan, it's possible coach Billy Donovan goes with Jerami Grant to guard Dirk Nowitzki. The Thunder will likely update Adams' status tomorrow, but for now consider him day-to-day.
Nov 11 - 6:08 PM

Steven Adams (calf) will not play on Friday vs. the Clippers.

He has a right calf contusion and didn't even test it out in warmups which is a bit concerning. The Thunder are off until Sunday and only have two games next week, so hopefully the time off will help him recover quicker. Coach Billy Donovan hasn't announced a replacement yet, but we're likely going to see a lot of small ball with Jerami Grant seeing an uptick in minutes. Nick Collison and Dakari Johnson could be in the mix as well.
