Noah Vonleh scored two points with two assists in 12 minutes against the Rockets on Saturday.
Al-Farouq Aminu is healthy and Vonleh isn't going to be playing much now. It is noteworthy that he did play seven minutes at center today, but the matchup was definitely a factor. Don't expect him to be much better while Jusuf Nurkic (ankle) is on the shelf. Dec 10 - 4:08 AM

Noah Vonleh finished with just five points across 13 minutes in Saturday's game against the Pelicans.

Vonleh made up for the lack of points with seven rebounds and two blocked shots. With Al-Farouq Aminu back, Vonleh still was able to start, but he played half as many minutes as the veteran. He played well in recent weeks, but if his minutes are in the 15-20 minute range, he obviously loses quite a bit of fantasy appeal.
Dec 3 - 1:38 AM

Noah Vonleh scored four points with six rebounds and one turnover in 23 minutes against the Bucks on Thursday.

He had to guard Giannis Antetokounmpo for a good portion of this game, but you could say it went better than expected. Even with Al-Farouq Aminu back, it's possible Vonleh keeps his minutes close to 20, especially with how Portland has defended lately. Solid play aside, his fantasy upside leaves a lot to be desired and he is probably going to trend down for his owners in deep leagues.
Dec 1 - 12:25 AM

Noah Vonleh hit 2-of-3 shots to finish with eight points, 12 rebounds and a steals in 31 minutes of Monday's win over the Knicks.

Vonleh has become a rebounding machine and he should be given consideration by owners in need of rebounds, as he's averaging 7.2 points, 11.6 rebounds and 0.8 blocks over his last five games. However, Al-Farouq Aminu is due back soon from his ankle injury, making Vonleh a bit of a risky add, especially given his inability to score.
Nov 27 - 10:36 PM

Noah Vonleh came off the bench after halftime on Wednesday, finishing with two points, 11 rebounds, one assist and one steal in 19 minutes.

Vonleh was coming off a double-double with 18 rebounds on Monday, and he was hitting the glass early tonight, but the Blazers needed more offense in the lineup. Evan Turner could revert to a bench role on Friday, and either way Al-Farouq Aminu (ankle) looms as an imminent threat to Vonleh's playing time. There isn't much fantasy upside here.
Nov 22 - 10:16 PM

Noah Vonleh hit 4-of-8 shots for a season-high 11 points, a season-high 18 rebounds and a season-high three blocks in 31 minutes of Monday's win over the Grizzlies.

This was his first double-double of the season and if you somehow rolled the dice on him in DFS, he came through in a big way. Vonleh has been starting at power forward for Al-Farouq Aminu and is worth keeping an eye on for as long as AFA is out with his ankle injury. Aminu is due back any day now from his injury, which limits Vonleh's appeal despite the big night.
Nov 20 - 11:40 PM

Noah Vonleh scored six points with six boards and one assist in a start against the Kings on Saturday.

He made all three from the field and was effective on defense. Coach Terry Stotts loves the matchups and Al-Farouq Aminu (ankle) could be back in the next week or so, which means it's hard to roster Vonleh.
Nov 19 - 12:47 AM

Noah Vonleh will start against the Kings on Saturday.

Caleb Swanigan got a quick hook on Friday, so he may be out of the rotation. Vonleh still isn't worth owning in most leagues.
Nov 18 - 10:11 PM

Noah Vonleh was productive off the bench on Monday vs. Denver, scoring eight points with 10 rebounds, one assist, one block and two steals in 26 minutes.

Maybe he didn't like getting benched in favor of Caleb Swanigan, as this was his best game of the season. Swanigan looked solid as well, but the rookie had five fouls which led to more run for Vonleh. This game doesn't the move the needle much and we'll need to see a couple more performances like this before we could get behind a pickup in deeper leagues.
Nov 14 - 12:39 AM

Noah Vonleh started again on Sunday, but he finished with just one point (0-of-2 FGs, 1-of-2 FTs), eight rebounds and one block in 24 minutes vs. the Thunder.

Al-Farouq Aminu (sprained right ankle) will be out at least a few weeks, during which time Vonleh should continue to start at PF. Terry Stotts is enamored with the 22-year-old's defense, but there's not much to like for fantasy purposes -- in 41 starts last year, he averaged 5.9 points, 7.0 boards, 0.6 assists, 0.5 steals and 0.3 blocks.
Nov 5 - 11:53 PM

Noah Vonleh made a start against the Lakers on Thursday, failing to score with two rebounds, one assist and two blocks in 15 minutes.

He did have foul trouble here, so maybe he could've been above 20 minutes tonight. Al-Farouq Aminu (ankle) is likely going to miss multiple games and was on crutches, but don't be surprised if coach Terry Stotts mixes and matches his starter at the four. Vonleh is only a pickup in deep leagues.
Nov 3 - 2:04 AM

Coach Terry Stotts said Noah Vonleh will start against the Lakers on Thursday.

He made his season debut on Wednesday with 13 minutes, but now he'll get to start for Al-Farouq Aminu. There's a very good chance he won't get a full workload and Stotts is certainly going to mix it up with a lot of different combinations at forward. Considering how the Lakers will run, Moe Harkless should get a lot of time at the four, which means more burn for guys like Evan Turner and Pat Connaughton.
Nov 2 - 8:50 PM

Noah Vonleh (shoulder) made his season debut on Wednesday vs. the Jazz with five points and one rebound in 13 minutes.

Vonleh may be forced to step into a larger role going forward, as Al-Farouq Aminu could miss time with an ankle injury. Coach Terry Stotts isn't known for his transparency, so it's unclear who he will call upon if Aminu sits against the Lakers on Thursday. Vonleh isn't worth adding for now.
Nov 2 - 2:04 AM

Updating a previous report, Noah Vonleh (shoulder) will make his regular-season debut, Wednesday vs. the Jazz.

Vonleh missed the first seven games of the year as he recovered from the shoulder injury, but he'll be back out there tonight. Vonleh's return to action could make it tougher for Caleb Swanigan to get into the rotation, and he might eventually replace Al-Farouq Aminu in the starting five once he's fully up to speed. That said, even as a starter last season, Vonleh was only on the floor for 17 minutes a night without bringing much to the box score, so he's safe to leave on the wire in most formats.
Oct 31 - 4:12 PM

Noah Vonleh (shoulder) is not being listed on the injury report for Wednesday's game in Utah.

Vonleh was targeting a November 1 return all along, so it looks like he's on track to meet that goal. There's a chance that Vonleh could eventually replace Al-Farouq Aminu in the starting five once he's fully up to speed, but even as a starter, it's unlikely he'd be earning much more than 17 minutes a night, rending him useless in most fantasy leagues.
