Date:

Noah Vonleh (ankle) will not play on Monday vs. the Grizzlies.

This will be his third game on the shelf and this probably means that he won't play on Wednesday vs. the Rockets either. Moe Harkless has benefitted the most in his absence, while Al-Farouq Aminu should play a few more minutes as well.
Feb 8 - 6:34 PM

Noah Vonleh (left ankle) is being listed as doubtful for Monday's game vs. the Grizzlies.

Vonleh has spent the past two games on the sidelines which has resulted in Moe Harkless entering the staring five and Al-Farouq Aminu logging some extended minutes at the four-spot. It'll be more of the same on Monday with Vonleh likely to spend that game on the sidelines. Harkless is someone to consider swooping up for his short-term appeal in deep leagues.
Feb 7 - 2:55 PM

Noah Vonleh (ankle) will not play on Saturday against the Rockets.

It'll be Moe Harkless getting another start, but that doesn't mean much with Harkless only getting 16 minutes on Thursday. Allen Crabbe figures to get a nice bump here with some smaller lineups while Al-Farouq Aminu plays a lot of four. Vonleh could be back before the break.
Feb 6 - 3:35 PM

Noah Vonleh (ankle) is doubtful for Saturday's game vs. the Rockets.

Moe Harkless drew the start against the Raptors on Thursday, so the Blazers will likely stick with the same lineup since the Rockets are starting Trevor Ariza at the four. Vonleh only plays minutes in the teens despite the fact that he has been starting at power forward, so he's not worth owning in most leagues.
Feb 6 - 11:22 AM

Noah Vonleh (ankle) is out against the Raptors on Thursday.

He was doubtful for this game and could miss time. The Blazers are more likely to go small tonight with Al-Farouq Aminu getting run at the four. Also, the Blazers have used Allen Crabbe at the three for about six minutes per game recently. Meyers Leonard may also see a bump.
Feb 4 - 8:19 PM

Noah Vonleh (left ankle) is doubtful for Thursday's game against the Raptors.

He said he was fine on Tuesday, but apparently it swelled up on him. If Vonleh is out, Meyers Leonard will likely get his first chance to start since his injured shoulder. There should also be a lot of minutes at the four for Al-Farouq Aminu, which opens up some run for Allen Crabbe in this kind of matchup.
Feb 3 - 3:28 PM

Noah Vonleh downplayed the sprained ankle that forced him out of Tuesday's game, saying that the ankle injury is "nothing major."

"I got X-Rays. They said there were no breaks and it wasn't nothing major," Vonleh said after the game. "Just a little swelling. It should go down pretty quick. It's feeling a little sore, but I don't think it's anything major." For now we'll be considering Noah questionable for Thursday's game vs. the Raptors, and if he's forced to miss any time, Meyers Leonard will see a boost in playing time. Vonleh is only averaging 16 minutes a game despite starting for Portland, so he belongs on the waiver wire in all re-draft leagues.
Feb 3 - 10:42 AM

X-rays taken on Noah Vonleh's ankle came back negative.

He is dealing with a left ankle sprain and should be considered questionable for Thursday's game vs. the Raptors. Vonleh usually only plays minutes in the teens, so he shouldn't be owned in most leagues. Meyers Leonard will benefit the most if Vonleh misses time.
Feb 3 - 1:38 AM

Noah Vonleh was diagnosed with a left ankle sprain on Tuesday vs. the Bucks and will not return.

He was scoreless in 16 minutes with three boards. Vonleh hasn't been a reliable fantasy asset all season even though he is the starting power forward, so he shouldn't be owned in most leagues anyways. Meyers Leonard will see a boost in playing time if Vonleh misses any more action.
Feb 2 - 11:40 PM

Noah Vonleh scored 10 points with seven boards and two blocks in 23 minutes in Tuesday's win over the Kings.

He has now scored in double digits in back-to-back games for the first time in his career. Vonleh scored a season-high 11 points vs. the Lakers on Saturday, so he is slowly starting to find his way in this league. Portland's frontcourt is still very crowded and Vonleh will only get minutes in the upper teens to lower 20s on most nights, but he is starting to pop up on the radar in deeper leagues.
Jan 27 - 12:55 AM

Noah Vonleh scored a season-high 11 points vs. the Lakers on Saturday, adding six boards, one assist and three steals in 25 minutes.

This was the most minutes he has seen since Jan. 3, but garbage time was certainly a factor in this one. In fact, Vonleh was averaging just 17.3 minutes per game in January before tonight. The second year player is still not worth owning in most leagues despite the fact that he is still starting over Meyers Leonard (two points, five boards, three assists).
Jan 24 - 1:45 AM

Noah Vonleh played 26 minutes against the Thunder on Wednesday with two points and seven rebounds.

He played the last four minutes in garbage time. Vonleh has really just played minutes in the teens almost every night, so we'll have to see it again. He can be left on the wire almost everywhere even with Meyers Leonard struggling.
Thu, Dec 17, 2015 01:37:00 AM

Noah Vonleh played 15 minutes as Portland's starting PF on Saturday, finishing with four points, three boards, one assist and one steal.

Vonleh is expected to continue starting at PF but he's ceding minutes to Meyers Leonard, who is infinitely more appealing as a fantasy target. Vonleh and Ed Davis were getting outscored by 10.4 points per 100 possessions while on the court together, and coach Terry Stotts conceded that "it's easier for [Vonleh] to play with the starters." He's a non-factor in fantasy leagues despite the starting gig.

Noah Vonleh scored six points with four rebounds in 18 minutes against the Pacers on Thursday.

Since he's quick enough to guard threes and has length to handle them in the post on offense, Vonleh took advantage of a nice matchup. He played just six minutes on Tuesday and has a lot of competition for minutes. He's only worth an add in very deep leagues.
