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.

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.

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.
Mar 15 - 2:38 PM

Steven Adams (hip) will not play Tuesday vs. the Hawks, and it'll be Dakari Johnson getting the start in his place.

The Thunder had Adams go through his pregame routine before an official decision was made, which suggests that the hip issue is relatively minor. It also makes sense to give him some rest on a back-to-back with a matchup against the worst team out East, but maybe he'll be able to get back out there on Saturday against the Clippers. Johnson, Patrick Patterson and Jerami Grant should pick up some extra minutes tonight with Adams watching from the sidelines.

Steven Adams (left hip contusion) will be a game-time decision for Tuesday's matchup vs. Atlanta.

Adams was injured and later ruled out of Monday's win over the Kings in the second half as a result of the hip injury. Per Thunder reporter Royce Young, Adams will go through pregame warmups and see how he feels. If Adams is unable to play, Jerami Grant and Patrick Patterson would be the primary beneficiaries.

Steven Adams (left hip contusion) is questionable for Tuesday's game vs. Atlanta.

Adams injured his hip in Monday night's victory over the Kings. He was unable to return and was ruled out in the second half. After the game, when asked if he thought he'd be able to play on Tuesday, Adams said: "We'll see." It wouldn't be surprising if the Thunder decides to sit him out Tuesday night, considering it's the back end of a back-to-back and Atlanta is one of the league's worst teams. Jerami Grant and Patrick Patterson would see an uptick in minutes if Adams is unable to play.

Steven Adams (left hip contusion) said he was unsure if he would be able to play Tuesday night vs. the Hawks.

Adams sprained his left ankle Saturday vs. San Antonio, but was cleared to play Monday night against the Kings. However, Adams was ruled out of Monday's game in the third quarter as a result of the hip injury. When asked after the game if he thought he would play Tuesday vs. Atlanta, Adams said: "We'll see." Considering it's a back-to-back and the Hawks are one of the league's worst teams, OKC may choose to err on the side of caution and sit Adams. Jerami Grant and Patrick Patterson would be the primary beneficiaries if Adams is unable to play.

Steven Adams suffered a left hip contusion and will not return on Monday vs. the Kings.

Adams may have also re-tweaked his left ankle which was the reason he was on the injury report in the first place. The Thunder ruled him out during the fourth quarter of what is surprisingly a close game, so that's a bit concerning. He finished with six points, six rebounds, two assists and two steals. If he misses time, the Thunder will likely play more small ball with Jerami Grant and Patrick Patterson picking up run.
Mar 12 - 10:00 PM

Steven Adams (ankle) will play Monday vs. the Kings.

Adams must be feeling fine considering that this is the first game of a back-to-back set with a matchup against the 21-46 Kings. He won't have any minutes limit tonight, so owners shouldn't hesitate to get him active.
Mar 12 - 6:25 PM

Steven Adams (left ankle) is questionable for Monday's game vs. the Kings.

Owners will have to check back after OKC's shootaround, but it's possible Adams is headed for a game-time decision. If he can't suit up we expect to see more small-ball lineups, with Patrick Patterson and Nick Collison helping to shore up the frontcourt.
Mar 11 - 7:25 PM

Steven Adams (ankle) will be re-evaluated on Sunday after leaving Saturday's game against the Spurs due to a left ankle injury.

Head coach Billy Donovan didn't have any updates on Adams after the big man turned his ankle after landing on Dejounte Murray's foot. If Adams is unable to play in Monday's game against Sacramento, look for Patrick Patterson and Nick Collison to pick up some extra run. The team might even reach down to the G-League and summon Dakari Johnson for big man reinforcements.
Mar 10 - 11:25 PM

Steven Adams turned his left ankle in the third quarter against the Spurs on Saturday.

He wasn't limping too bad after he landed on Dejounte Murray's foot. He did roll it pretty good, so the Thunder may just choose to hold him out. We should have an update soon.
Mar 10 - 9:59 PM

Steven Adams scored 16 points with 12 rebounds, two assists, three blocks and two steals in 30 minutes against the Suns on Thursday.

He's just too strong and the Suns had no answer for him. Adams is locked in on efficiency with his 71.1 percent from the field over his last five, averaging 12.8 points, 9.2 boards, 1.4 dimes, 1.4 blocks and 1.6 steals. He's been an absolute difference maker in fantasy.
Mar 9 - 12:23 AM

Steven Adams ended up with 12 points and seven rebounds over 36 minutes in Saturday's 108-100 loss at Portland.

The New Zealander appeared to suffer a right elbow injury earlier this week, but he hasn't shown any ill effects over the past two outings. He is averaging 11.5 PPG and 7.0 RPG since the mild injury. Adams remains an effective fantasy starter heading into OKC's three-game upcoming week.
