Noah Vonleh will be traded to the Blazers.
His career didn't get off to a great start due to surgery for a sports hernia in September, and he never really got it going, especially on offense. Vonleh made just 39.5 percent from the field in his rookie season, which came as a surprise after he showed some nice range at Indiana. The Blazers seem to be preparing for LaMarcus Aldridge possibly leaving, so it's tough to tell what kind of playing time Vonleh will get right now. He has a lot of potential and maybe he improves at summer league. Jun 24 - 7:13 PM

Noah Vonleh scored nine points with 12 boards, two blocks and one 3-pointer in 23 minutes against the Raptors on Wednesday.

The Hornets gave him at least 21 minutes in each of his last five, but Vonleh didn't cash in. He averaged just 7.2 points, 8.6 boards, 0.6 blocks and 0.8 treys on 34.2 percent from the field in those five losses. He's a major project, but the upside is there. We'll be watching him at summer league.
Apr 15 - 9:55 PM

Noah Vonleh played 22 minutes against the Rockets on Monday with four points, seven boards and one 3-pointer.

He made just 1-of-8 from the field tonight and his offensive game is probably a little more raw than most anticipated heading into the season, which is a big reason why he fell in the draft. Vonleh could have a chance for more minutes next season and he'll be worth watching at summer league.
Apr 13 - 11:27 PM

Noah Vonleh notched his first NBA double-double on Sunday with 16 points and 12 rebounds in 29 minutes vs. the Pistons.

He made 6-of-11 shots with one 3-pointer and one steal, and the only caveat was a 3-of-6 mark at the free throw line. It's safe to ask why Charlotte didn't ease Vonleh into the rotation sooner, but he's poised to average 25+ minutes over the Hornets' final two games. He's worth a gamble in deeper leagues.
Apr 12 - 6:21 PM

Noah Vonleh could be in line for more minutes over the rest of the 2014-15 regular season.

With the Hornets currently dealing with a multitude of injuries, the rookie has been forced into action. But with the team falling out of the playoff hunt, Vonleh could get an extended look over the Hornets' last four games. Vonleh isn't worth an in standard leagues just yet, but fantasy owners in deeper leagues will want to keep a tab on the rookie's minutes over the next few games.
Apr 9 - 12:57 PM

Noah Vonleh scored three points in 23 minutes against the Raptors during a 92-74 loss on Wednesday, adding six rebounds and one block.

He made 1-of-7 from the field and his offensive issues are a big reason why he hasn't been able to get regular playing time. Still, they're basically out of the playoff hunt and may want to give the rookie a little look heading into the offseason. He's still nowhere near being on the radar in standard leagues.
Apr 8 - 9:52 PM

Noah Vonleh played 14 minutes with six points, six boards, one assist and one steal against the 76ers on Saturday.

With Cody Zeller (shoulder) and Al Jefferson (knee) out, we saw plenty of Vonleh. Plus, Bismack Biyombo broke his nose, so there may be even more minutes available. He is a rookie and his coach has openly said he is a little rough around the edges, so Vonleh is only a grab in deep leagues for now.
Apr 4 - 10:07 PM

Hornets rookie Noah Vonleh picked up his sixth consecutive DNP-CD on Tuesday.

The 19-year-old PF was drafted No. 9 overall by Charlotte last summer, but coach Steve Clifford is coaching his team toward the playoffs and won't sacrifice wins for Vonleh's development. He's worth monitoring during the summer, however, as he could emerge with a substantial role in 2015-16.
Mar 3 - 10:22 PM

Noah Vonleh set career-highs in points (10), rebounds (7) and blocks (2) in 16 minutes vs. the Nuggets on Saturday.

This game was over in a hurry, meaning Vonleh got some extra run during garbage time. Vonleh still has a long way to go before we can recommend adding him outside of keeper leagues, so owners can safely leave him on the wire for now.
Jan 31 - 11:31 PM

With injuries to Bismack Biyombo (knee) and Marvin Williams (concussion), Noah Vonleh could step into the rotation according to coach Steve Clifford.

"I think he’s getting there. Today was one of his best days," Clifford said of Vonleh after practice Tuesday. "It’s a big jump but I think he’s a great worker and a very serious player. He’s getting closer." While it will be exciting to see what the rookie can do, owners in most leagues can use a wait-and-see approach here, as Vonleh is still very raw and it will take him some time to adjust to the NBA.
Jan 28 - 9:47 AM

Noah Vonleh got his first real crack at playing time on Thursday with two points, three rebounds and one steal in 10 minutes.

Today was the first game of his career in which he played before the fourth quarter. Vonleh is going to need yet another injury to get minutes, which is asking a lot considering how banged up the Hornets are right now.
Jan 8 - 10:35 PM

The Charlotte Hornets have recalled rookie Noah Vonleh from the D-League and he is expected to be available vs. the Rockets on Wednesday.

Even with Al Jefferson sidelined, it would be surprising to see the rookie play any meaningful minutes for the Hornets in the near future. Deep league owners would be wise to track Vonleh's progress throughout the season, but he is still far off the fantasy radar in the majority of leagues.

The Hornets plan to recall Noah Vonleh from the D-League.

With the Hornets scrambling for frontcourt depth now that Al Jefferson (groin) is set to miss at least two games, the rookie will rejoin the Hornets. Bismack Biyombo is expected to start for Jefferson on Wednesday while Cody Zeller will see an uptick in his minutes, so fantasy owners can feel free to leave Vonleh on waivers for now as he likely won't get much run.
Tue, Dec 30, 2014 01:05:00 PM

Steve Clifford explained Noah Vonleh being sent to the D-League should not be viewed as a demotion.

A 19-year-old rookie who missed a ton of time in the offseason following sports hernia surgery, Vonleh is simply behind the learning curve, and the rigors of an NBA schedule don't allow much catch-up time. Often viewed through a lens it shouldn't be, the D-League offers Vonleh a chance at meaningful minutes, competition and experience. Sitting at the end of Charlotte's bench does not.

Noah Vonleh was sent down to the NBA D-League on Sunday.

He simply isn't getting enough minutes with the Hornets, so it will be good for the rookie to get some experience. Vonleh is not on the radar in standard leagues, but those of you in keeper leagues would be wise to track his progress.
