Noah Vonleh scored 10 points with 11 rebounds and five turnovers in 27 minutes against the Hawks on Saturday.

He may be playing his best ball of the season and turned in his first double-double of his third-year campaign. Vonleh is still just 21 and he did slide in the 2014 draft because he was raw, so maybe better days are ahead. That said, there's very little reason to add him in fantasy unless you're streaming on a light night.
Mar 18 - 9:21 PM

Noah Vonleh played a season-high 26 minutes on Wednesday, finishing with 12 points, six rebounds and three assists.

Vonleh was three minutes below his career-high for playing time, and it's easy to see why coach Terry Stotts left him on the court -- he played solid defense and made the most of every offensive opportunity, making 4-of-4 FGs and 4-of-4 FTs. He's averaging below 19 minutes per game since the break, however, with a meager 12.9 usage rate, so tonight's game doesn't mean much in the scheme of things.
Mar 16 - 12:44 AM

Noah Vonleh scored seven points with four rebounds and one block in 16 minutes against the Magic on Thursday.

Even without any other healthy Blazers with their primary position as a power forward for tonight, Vonleh still couldn't get decent minutes. He could stick in the starting lineup, but it may not matter too much. Although, Jusuf Nurkic's post presence is not a great fit next to Vonleh.
Feb 23 - 10:19 PM

Noah Vonleh will move into Portland's starting lineup on Thursday.

Meyers Leonard and Ed Davis are coming off the bench tonight, while Vonleh starts alongside Jusuf Nurkic, Moe Harkless, C.J. McCollum and Damian Lillard. Vonleh hasn't been a reliable fantasy option even when starting, and that's unlikely to change even while Al-Farouq Aminu (knee) is out of commission.
Feb 23 - 7:03 PM

Noah Vonleh did not attempt any shots against the Jazz on Wednesday with seven rebounds and one steal in 24 minutes off the bench.

He probably didn't lose his job as the starter here. Al-Farouq Aminu (knee) did not play, so Vonleh was the only healthy power forward on the depth chart. Considering the Jazz's size, that explains why Ed Davis started today. Even if Vonleh starts, he has very little value in fantasy .
Feb 16 - 12:35 AM

Noah Vonleh will come off the bench vs. Utah on Wednesday.

Ed Davis is starting alongside Meyers Leonard tonight in an attempt to combat Utah's imposing frontcourt. Vonleh hasn't made much noise even when he's starting, so this shouldn't impact many lineups.
Feb 15 - 8:48 PM

Noah Vonleh collected 10 rebounds during Wednesday's home win, adding eight points on 4-of-6 shooting in just 20 minutes of action.

Vonleh continues to start at PF and he's been effectively lately, hitting 12-of-20 shots in his past three games, but his overall fantasy value is shaky. He has zero assists or blocks in those three games, with one 3-pointer, and most owners can ignore him unless his minutes unexpectedly spike.
Jan 26 - 1:56 AM

Noah Vonleh started for the second straight time in a win over Boston on Saturday, scoring eight points with six rebounds and three steals in 17 minutes.

He will be seeing Al Horford drop-step moves in his sleep tonight. Vonleh actually wasn't too bad and was better than expected in these two games as a starter. Plus, it has to count for something that the starting unit had a good weekend. Obviously we wouldn't sign off on adding Vonleh unless you're really desperate.
Jan 21 - 8:51 PM

Noah Vonleh and Evan Turner are starting over Al-Farouq Aminu and Moe Harkless again on Saturday.

This is the second straight day they Blazers have used this lineup, but it may just be a temporary thing. There's no need to make a move for anyone in most leagues.
Jan 21 - 5:10 PM

Noah Vonleh started over Al-Farouq Aminu on Friday against the 76ers.

Well, coach Terry Stotts is at it again. The Blazers are on a back-to-back set, so that might be a factor. There's no fantasy move to be made with this late switch and it won't stick.
Jan 20 - 7:12 PM

Noah Vonleh scored six points with seven rebounds in a start against the Nuggets on Thursday.

Al-Farouq Aminu (back) did not play in this game to open up a role for Vonleh. He really hasn't played well even with Aminu out, so just leave him on the wire.

Noah Vonleh will start against the Nuggets on Thursday.

He played just 19 minutes on Tuesday and there's a chance he sees fewer minutes with the Nuggets going small. Vonleh is too risky to own.
Thu, Dec 15, 2016 08:42:00 PM

Noah Vonleh scored five points on 2-of-4 shooting with four rebounds and one block in 19 minutes against the Thunder on Tuesday.

Al-Farouq Aminu (back contusion) was a late scratch, but it's possible the Blazers were simply resting him on the second night of a back-to-back set. Even if Aminu misses more time, Vonleh is not guaranteed another start as coach Terry Stotts could turn to Ed Davis and Meyers Leonard at the four or go small with Allen Crabbe and Evan Turner at the three (with Moe Harkless shifting to PF). Leave Vonleh on the wire.

Noah Vonleh will start against the Thunder on Tuesday.

Al-Farouq Aminu (back contusion) has been ruled out, but it's not a surprise to see Vonleh in the starting lineup because head coach Terry Stotts loves to mix it up from time to time. In his only other start of the season, Vonleh scored five points with 11 rebounds, one block and one trey in 26 minutes.
