Steven Adams scored 12 points with 17 rebounds, one steal and one block in 37 minutes against the Spurs on Monday.
The OKC starters didn't fare away against the Spurs during the regular season, but their starting group was terrific in this outing. Adams did only play 25 minutes on Saturday due to garbage time, so it looks like he'll be in the upper 30s per game. He'll be really important in this series to help protect the paint.

Steven Adams scored nine points with 10 rebounds and one block in 25 minutes against the Spurs on Saturday.

He's known for his defense, but OKC was completely destroyed on that end. It's certainly not on Adams because the Thunder had their pick-and-roll defense ruined well beyond the paint in this game. Considering how bad this went for them, maybe coach Billy Donovan shakes things up a bit. For now, Adams looks like the better fantasy option over Enes Kanter. He's more of a tournament play, though.
Apr 30 - 10:51 PM

Steven Adams' tip-in at the end of regulation was a fraction of a second late on Monday, finishing with nine points, seven rebounds, one assist and one block.

The Thunder had three chances at it and OKC now has the series tied up. Adams played well in this game in the post, but it hasn't led to production on the stat sheet. He's not the best DFS option.
Apr 18 - 10:58 PM

Steven Adams scored four points with seven rebounds, one steal and one block in 23 minutes against the Mavs on Saturday.

He locked down the paint with the two non-garbage time centers going a combined 1-of-6 from the field. Adams won't be asked to do much on the offensive end, so he'll have to produce with boards and blocks. He's not the best DFS target due to a low upside.
Apr 17 - 12:17 AM

Steven Adams scored 17 points with nine rebounds and two blocks in 38 minutes vs. the Spurs on Tuesday.

If you took a flier on him in DFS, then you're probably pretty happy with this line. Adams clearly benefitted from the absence of Serge Ibaka (rest) and he was very efficient as well, shooting 7-of-8 from the field and 3-of-3 from the line. Expect him to split minutes with Enes Kanter at center during the postseason.
Apr 12 - 11:09 PM

Steven Adams scored six points on 3-of-8 shooting Sunday with nine rebounds, three assists, two blocks and one turnover in 31 minutes.

Adams did some nice work defensively against Dwight Howard. He’s been a ninth-round guy in 9-cat leagues since the break, and is a worthwhile low-end big to own in deep leagues for those seeking a FG percentage booster and shot blocking specialist.
Apr 3 - 6:38 PM

Steven Adams scored 11 points with two rebounds, one assist and three steals against the Pacers on Saturday.

He had a small elbow hyperextension and was in some pain. After the game, Adams said he was a "diva" and overreacted. He's fine.
Mar 19 - 10:57 PM

Steven Adams scored 12 points with 11 rebounds, one assist and three blocks in 26 minutes against the 76ers on Friday.

It's his first double-double since Jan. 20 and it probably helped to get Serge Ibaka some rest tonight. Adams has been too inconsistent to use in most fantasy leagues right now.
Mar 18 - 9:55 PM

Steven Adams (ankle) scored 14 points on 6-of-13 shooting Sunday to go with eight rebounds, four assists, one turnover and zero blocks through 28 minutes of action.

The four assists tied a career high for Adams, as did his 13 shot attempts, but Adams' increased role on offense was mainly due to the matchup and is not a trend that's likely to continue. He's little more than a low-end big to own in deep leagues.
Mar 6 - 6:44 PM

Steven Adams (ankle) is in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Bucks.

OKC will roll out their standard starting five of Russell Westbrook, Andre Roberson, Kevin Durant, Serge Ibaka and Adams for Sunday's game. Adam's injury was never believed to be serious, but with meager averages of 6.2 points, 5.8 boards and just 0.4 blocks over the past five games, he's not a great option in most leagues.

Steven Adams (ankle) thinks that he will be fine for Sunday's game vs. the Bucks.

Adams tweaked his ankle during the third quarter of Thursday's loss to the Warriors, but he didn't seem concerned about and even joked that he "faked" his injury. It makes sense to confirm his status after the morning shootaround, but he's only averaging 6.2 points, 5.8 boards and 0.4 blocks over his last five games and doesn't belong in most fantasy lineups at the moment.
Mar 4 - 12:02 PM

Steven Adams was quiet vs. the Pelicans on Thursday with eight points, five boards, one assist and one block in 20 minutes.

He had four fouls, so that explains the low minutes. Even if you include this dud, Adams still has decent averages of 9.2 points, 6.8 boards and 1.8 blocks on 76.0 percent shooting in 25.0 minutes over his last five outings. If you're desperate for a big, Adams is at least worth a glance.
Feb 25 - 11:33 PM

Steven Adams scored 15 points with seven rebounds and two blocks against the Mavs on Wednesday.

He's actually been very good lately. In his last four, Adams averaged 9.5 points, 7.3 boards, 2.0 blocks and 0.3 steals on 78.9 percent from the field and 80.0 percent from the line. He's still only worth a look for owners desperately needing a big man.
Feb 24 - 11:44 PM

Steven Adams chipped in nine points, nine rebounds (four offensive), one assist, one steal and two blocks in 28 minutes vs. the Cavs on Sunday.

OKC's mustachioed center played very well, especially in the first half, but the team defense buckled while allowing Cleveland to shoot 51.3 percent, including 43.5 percent from downtown. Adams' starting job is secure but he's only helping owners in boards, blocks and FG percentage.
Feb 21 - 6:38 PM

Steven Adams (elbow) is no longer wearing a brace on his right arm.

Adams has been wearing the brace since returning from a two-game absence, but he's traded it in in favor of a less constrictive sleeve. "The brace is just real, I don't know, it feels weird," Adams said. "There's a lot of restrictions. So last game, I decided to do tape and then a sleeve. That seemed to work out well. There's a couple things that got (the elbow) mad. But other than that, it went well." As for how he's feeling, Adams said the injury is "getting there, bro."
