Steven Adams admitted to learning more about himself after dealing with various injuries this season.

After Adams broke his hand, that's when his mental perspective began to change. "After I got injured, I really learned just to appreciate the game and not think about it as much and just go out and have fun." Adams averaged 7.7 points, 7.5 rebounds, 0.5 steals and 1.2 blocks on 54.5 percent shooting in his sophomore season. He should again make for a popular low-end target in fantasy drafts next season.

Steven Adams scored eight points on 2-of-5 shooting with 10 rebounds, two steals and four blocks in Monday's win over the Blazers.

Adams hit just 4-of-10 free throws but he got it done in the areas that owners picked him up for. Look for he and his teammates to go all out on Wednesday against the Wolves.
Apr 14 - 3:57 AM

Steven Adams got back on track in Friday's win over the Kings, scoring six points on 2-of-6 shooting with 11 rebounds and four blocks in 31 minutes.

This stops the bleeding for owners and makes him worth a look if he was dropped. He's best suited as a matchup play and next Sunday's game in Indiana will be a big one for both sides, but David West and Roy Hibbert are no better than a neutral opponent these days. From there he gets the Blazers and Wolves and for owners they'll hope that the Blazers don't have anything to play for.
Apr 11 - 3:12 AM

Steven Adams struggled mightily trying to contain Dwight Howard during Sunday's loss to the Rockets, and he fouled out in just 16 minutes of action.

Adams finished Sunday's game with just six points, four rebounds, one assist and two turnovers as Howard dominated the matchup. Adams has not played very well at all over the past three games, putting in averages of just 7.3 points and 4.0 rebounds while failing to block a single shot. He's also gone just 4-of-11 from the charity stripe over that stretch, and right now he's doing more harm than good for fantasy squads. He's a cut candidate in standard leagues.
Apr 5 - 6:30 PM

Steven Adams played through an ankle injury on Friday against the Grizzlies, scoring nine points on 4-of-5 shooting with six rebounds and no steals or blocks in 36 minutes.

Considering the opponent and the injury this isn't a bad line at all, though owners may want to consider other options until he gets back to 100 percent.
Apr 4 - 1:12 AM

Steven Adams (ankle) will play Friday vs. the Grizzlies.

Adams is going to get a very tough matchup tonight against an imposing Memphis frontcourt, so he's by no means a must-start guy in standard leagues. Mitch McGary's value takes a hit with Adams active.
Apr 3 - 1:12 PM

Steven Adams (ankle) was unable to participate in Thursday's practice and will be a game-time decision for Friday's game against the Grizzlies.

Adams suffered a sprained ankle in the final minute of Wednesday's game and looks to be a true game-time decision for Friday. We'll update his status as more information becomes available, but Enes Kanter could be in for huge minutes while Mitch McGary would also see a minutes boost.
Apr 2 - 1:46 PM

Steven Adams said he'll "see how it goes" when asked about his sprained ankle from Wednesday.

He suffered the injury in the last minute of the game and did not return. OKC can't afford to lose Adams because he's really the only decent defender in the paint -- they allowed a ridiculous 72 points in the paint tonight, by the way. If he's out, there will be a lot of lineups with Enes Kanter as the center. Mitch McGary would also benefit and would be worth a look in deep leagues. Until we get something concrete on Funaki, leave McGary on the wire. Adams finished with seven points, two boards, two assists and two steals in 24 minutes.
Apr 2 - 2:37 AM

Steven Adams' 13 points and 16 rebounds helped the Thunder erase an early deficit to earn a key road win in Phoenix on Sunday.

He made 6-of-9 field goals while adding one steal and one block in a whopping 42 minutes of action. Both teams were fighting for their playoff lives tonight and it showed in a frenetic game which all but ended the Suns' playoff hopes. Adams was coming off two subpar games but he now has three double-doubles in the past week and is a solid option for owners seeking FG percentages, rebounds and blocks.
Mar 29 - 11:57 PM

Steven Adams grabbed 14 boards vs. the Jazz on Saturday, adding five points, two assists, one steal and one block in 23 minutes.

Adams briefly went to the locker room after a hard fall, but he quickly returned and didn't appear to be limited. He is reportedly still experiencing some pain in his elbow, but foul trouble was the reason for the low minutes tonight. He has slowed down in his past two games, but with averages of 9.4 points, 10.8 boards, 1.2 steals and 0.8 blocks over his last five, he is still worth owning in most leagues.
Mar 29 - 12:38 AM

Steven Adams (elbow) was a full participant during Friday's practice, and he said he will play Saturday vs. Utah.

Adams said that his elbow hurts and he's a bit banged up, but that won't stop him from suiting up for Friday's game. He will however draw a very tough matchup against an imposing Utah frontcourt, and he's coming off a game in which he was only able to put up four points and four rebounds, so it'll be interesting to see if he can bounce back during that one. If he stinks again, owners in standard leagues should probably consider sending him back to the wire.
Mar 27 - 1:49 PM

Steven Adams hit just 2-of-5 shots for four points and four rebounds in Wednesday's brutal 130-91 loss to the Spurs.

He played just 22 minutes in as ugly of a blowout as you'll see and the Spurs suddenly look like one of the hottest teams in the league. We're going to tell you to stick with Adams for now, but it is a bit concerning that he was said to have suffered a hip injury in Tuesday's game. We're guessing he bounces back on Saturday against the Jazz.
Mar 26 - 2:47 AM

Steven Adams may have aggravated a right hip/thigh injury during Tuesday's game, but he continued playing and had 16 points, 10 boards, three assists and two steals in an easy win vs. the Lakers.

Adams made 5-of-6 FGs and 6-of-6 FTs with just one turnover, rounding out a terrific fantasy performance. He's been dealing with a hip/thigh injury for much of the season but it hasn't cost him any games, and for now we're leaving him off the injury report. He's emerged as a steady fantasy big man in Serge Ibaka's absence and now has four straight double-doubles, forming a formidable frontcourt duo with Enes Kanter (six straight double-doubles).
Mar 24 - 11:32 PM

Steven Adams double-doubled on Sunday with 10 points on 5-of-10 shooting, 10 rebounds, one block and one turnover through 31 minutes of action.

With Nick Collison (ankle) and Serge Ibaka (knee) on the shelf, Adams has zero competition for minutes, and he's worth owning in most leagues. He's not going to score a lot, and he'll hurt you in the free throw category, but his solid contributions in rebounding and shot blocking will sustain his value.
