Noah Vonleh (thigh) still doesn't have a clear timetable to return.
He was given an original timetable of about 3-4 weeks on Aug. 31, so this is worrying. "I guess you could say I'm a little behind," Vonleh said. "But I'll catch up quick." He had a bone fragment removed from his right thigh, so the Blazers won't be in a hurry to rush him back. For now, he's been limited to light running and shooting. He's the fourth PF on the depth chart, so fantasy owners can ignore him. Sep 28 - 2:34 AM

Noah Vonleh is expected to miss 3-4 weeks after having a bone fragment removed from his right thigh.

The procedure was in Vancouver on Wednesday and he should make a full recovery in time for training camp. The No. 9 pick of the 2014 draft came over in the Nic Batum deal last summer and hasn't seen his career get off the ground yet. He struggled in Summer League last month and the Blazers adding some depth doesn't help him. He's nowhere near worthy of drafting in most leagues.

Noah Vonleh said he understands that the competition for playing time will be tougher this season.

"It's going to be real competitive," Vonleh said. "It's going to be a different year. If you're not ready to go, you're not going to play." Blazers coach Terry Stotts said that it was a "priority" to find minutes for Vonleh last season which explains why he started 56 games, but Stotts hinted that winning will be the top priority moving forward. The Blazers could shift Al-Farouq Aminu to power forward, while guys like Moe Harkless, Meyers Leonard and Ed Davis will be in the mix as well. Needless to say, Vonleh's outlook doesn't look great.
Aug 5 - 9:55 AM

Noah Vonleh produced his third straight summer league double-double on Tuesday, tallying 10 points, 10 boards, three assists, one steal, one 3-pointer, two blocks and one turnover in 36 minutes.

Vonleh briefly exited the game with a left gluteus contusion, but he played through it, which suggests this will be a non-issue moving forward. Despite starting 56 games for Portland last season, Vonleh only managed to contribute meager averages of 3.6 points and 3.9 rebounds per game. He’s been solid at summer league, but once the regular season begins he'll be competing for minutes with Al-Farouq Aminu, Moe Harkless and Meyers Leonard, which is obviously far from ideal.
Jul 12 - 6:44 PM

Noah Vonleh looked very comfortable in 33 minutes vs. the Spurs on Sunday, posting 16 points, 12 rebounds and one steal.

Vonleh has two NBA seasons under his belt, so he's a grizzled veteran by Summer League standards. It showed tonight as he racked up his second straight double-double, shooting 7-of-10 from the field with one 3-pointer. He didn't have any assists or blocks, and he turned the ball over six times, but his play in Vegas is still very encouraging for the up-and-coming Blazers.
Jul 11 - 12:09 AM

Noah Vonleh will play in the summer league.

Vonleh made some noise at Las Vegas last summer, but he had a quiet regular season in Portland with averages of just 3.6 points and 3.9 boards in 15.1 minutes. Moe Harkless and Meyers Leonard are both restricted free agents, but Vonleh will need a strong offseason to make a case for minutes in the rotation. Cliff Alexander, Pat Connaughton, Luis Montero, Jake Layman, Russ Smith and Pierre Jackson are also on the summer league roster.
Jul 5 - 4:12 PM

Noah Vonleh moved to the bench on Wednesday with one rebound, no other stats and a 0.0 usage rate.

He didn't have much value to begin with and this was likely a matchup move. Vonleh is only worth a look in very deep leagues.
Mar 24 - 1:16 AM

Noah Vonleh will move to the Blazers' bench for Wednesday's game vs. the Mavericks.

Portland is starting Moe Harkless tonight, with Al-Farouq Aminu shifting to PF, but this doesn't have many fantasy implications for Vonleh.
Mar 23 - 10:00 PM

Noah Vonleh returned to the starting lineup on Friday, but only managed to produce nine points, four rebounds and one 3-pointer during his 22 minutes on the court.

Vonleh is a good example of where starting doesn't necessarily equate to fantasy value. Through 40 starts this season, Noah has only managed to average 4.2 points and 4.6 rebounds per outing. He belongs on the waiver wire in nearly all leagues.
Feb 20 - 2:29 AM

Noah Vonleh (ankle) will return to the starting lineup for Friday's game vs. the Warriors, sending Moe Harkless back to the bench.

Vonleh hasn't done much as a starter this season, so he's safe to leave on the wire in nearly all leagues. The move to the bench isn't great news for Harkless.
Feb 19 - 10:15 PM

Noah Vonleh (ankle) was available to play on Wednesday but he did not leave the Blazers' bench.

Vonleh missed the past three games due to injury but he was apparently a DNP-CD tonight. Terry Stotts may simply have been playing it safe with Vonleh, to avoid a setback with the All-Star break looming, but either way he belongs on the waiver wire. In 39 starts this season, Vonleh has averaged just 4.1 points and 4.6 rebounds per game.
Feb 11 - 1:55 AM

Coach Terry Stotts said Noah Vonleh (ankle) will be active for Wednesday against the Rockets.

In usual Stotts fashion, he didn't say anything else and Vonleh may not play. He was probable and was playing well, so there's a good chance he'll play. You won't want to use him in DFS tonight.
Feb 10 - 8:52 PM

Noah Vonleh (ankle) has been upgraded to probable for Wednesday's game vs. the Rockets.

Vonleh's return could push Moe Harkless back to the bench, and is his value will take a significant hit with the return to the second-unit. Vonleh is averaging just 16 minutes per game as Portland's starting power forward and isn't worth owning in most leagues.
Feb 9 - 6:05 PM

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.
