Steven Adams scored 20 points with 13 rebounds, one assist, one steal and two blocks in 39 minutes against the Cavs on Thursday.
That's his third 20-10 game of the season and he's seen a slight bump in output since Enes Kanter (arm) went down. In those seven games, Adams averaged 12.7 points, 10.7 boards, 1.0 blocks and 0.7 steals. He's coasting as a mid-round player. Feb 9 - 11:05 PM

Steven Adams went to work on the offensive glass on Sunday, grabbing nine of his 13 boards on the offensive end to go with seven points, one assist, two steals and two turnovers in 38 minutes.

Adams hauled in four offensive rebounds on OKC's first possession, and over the past two games he's brought down 20 boards on the offensive glass. Unsurprisingly, OKC is now on a two-game winning streak. Adams isn't the most exciting guy to own, but he's been a steady mid-round guy all year long, and there's no reason to expect a sudden drop-off in production.
Feb 5 - 6:44 PM

Steven Adams scored 16 points with 13 rebounds, two assists, one steal and two blocks in 44 minutes against the Grizzlies on Friday.

The Thunder just don't have another reliable big man right now, so there are just so many minutes going to Adams these days. If not for garbage time, Adams would likely be looking at minutes 35 minutes per game. He should be putting up some big numbers without Enes Kanter (arm).
Feb 4 - 1:22 AM

Steven Adams had a night to forget on Wednesday, scoring eight points with six rebounds while making 3-of-7 shots in 29 minutes vs. the Bulls.

In fairness, the was the second of back-to-back games for Adams and the Bulls are one of the stingier teams vs. opposing centers (10th-fewest points allowed, 9th-fewest rebounds allowed). Adams has been playing great and the absence of Enes Kanter can only help his playing time, so owners should just brush off tonight's performance.
Feb 2 - 12:31 AM

Steven Adams hit 7-of-13 shots for 16 points, 12 rebounds, a steal and a block in 34 minutes of Tuesday's 108-94 loss to the Thunder.

Adams has been back from his concussion for five games and after a slow start with nine points, six boards and four blocks in the first one, he's double-doubled in two of his last four games and is averaging 13.4 points, 9.2 rebounds and 2.0 blocks on 56 percent shooting over his last five. He's good to go.
Jan 31 - 11:34 PM

Steven Adams scored seven points on 3-of-4 shooting Sunday (1-of-1 from the stripe), to go with 10 rebounds, one assist, one block and four turnovers in 27 minutes.

We'd expect Adams' minutes to be higher than this on most nights moving forward with Enes Kanter (arm) out of commission for the next 6-8 weeks, but he struggled a bit with foul trouble in this one, and it wasn't really a great matchup for him. Adams is quietly producing fifth-round value on the year with averages of 12.1 points, 7.6 boards, 1.2 steals, 1.1 blocks and 2.0 turnovers per game on 59.3 percent shooting from the field and 71.2 percent from the stripe.
Jan 29 - 6:18 PM

Steven Adams scored 15 points with seven rebounds in 37 minutes against the Mavs on Thursday.

It should be the Steven Adams show at the five. He played 20 minutes at center in the second half and should be in the upper 30s while Enes Kanter (arm) is out. On top of that, Adams gets a 1.8 rebounding rate bump and a 3.9 usage rate bump when Kanter is off the floor -- that lineup is only used for 7.8 minutes per game. Adams should continue to flirt with top-50 value this season.
Jan 27 - 12:11 AM

Steven Adams feasted against the Pelicans on Wednesday, scoring 20 points with 11 rebounds, three assists, one steal and four blocks in 32 minutes.

It's just his second 20-10 game of the season with the Pelicans interior defense not showing up in this game. Adams just returned to action back on Monday, but he's hit the ground running with four blocks in each. He's been one of the steals of fantasy drafts with his fifth-round value on the year. There's no reason to think he'll slow down going forward.
Jan 26 - 1:57 AM

Steven Adams (concussion) returned from a two-game absence on Monday vs. the Jazz and scored nine points with six rebounds, one assist and four blocks.

The Thunder didn't waste any time easing him back into action by giving the big man a 37-minute workload. Rudy Gobert usually shuts down opposing centers, so Adams' owners should take this line and run. Adams will be a strong play against a Pelicans team on Wednesday that could be without Anthony Davis (quad).
Jan 24 - 1:14 AM

Steven Adams (concussion) will play on Monday vs. the Jazz.

He returns just in time to face Rudy Gobert. The matchup is brutal, but season-long owners can activate Adams in lineups after a two-game absence. Barring a surprise, Jerami Grant will return to the bench with Adams back in action.
Jan 23 - 7:41 PM

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.
Jan 22 - 2:05 PM

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.
Jan 20 - 1:55 PM

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.
