Noah Vonleh started again on Tuesday, but hit just 3-of-7 shots for seven points, three rebounds and a block in 12 minutes.
Ed Davis played 35 minutes off the bench and is the starter for all intents and purposes, and finished with 12 points, 13 rebounds, three steals and two blocks. With Meyers Leonard out, Davis is the guy you want to own here. Nov 25 - 1:01 AM

Noah Vonleh started on Wednesday with four points, six boards, and one turnover in 13 minutes.

He's been shuffled in and out of the starting lineup because coach Terry Stotts likes to play the matchups. Vonleh will be too inconsistent to own in almost any league.

Noah Vonleh moved back to the bench on Monday with three points, six boards, one assist and one 3-pointer in 22 minutes against the Spurs.

He hit his first 3-pointer of his career and didn't look too bad tonight. Chances are Chris Kaman won't stick in the starting lineup for long, so maybe the Blazers give Vonleh a longer look. Obviously there's no need to add him because he hasn't produced anything noteworthy in the NBA and Meyers Leonard (shoulder) was even doing some shooting today. Vonleh has some upside, though.

Noah Vonleh will return to the bench for Monday's game vs. the Spurs.

Vonleh got the start in place of Meyers Leonard (shoulder) on Sunday vs. the Hornets, but coach Terry Stotts will go with Chris Kaman tonight. Vonleh has upside, but he won't worth a look until he is consistent part of the rotation.
Nov 16 - 8:39 PM

Noah Vonleh had nine points, six rebounds, one assist and no defensive stats on Sunday, while filling in at PF for Meyers Leonard (shoulder).

Leonard has no clear return date and coach Terry Stotts is still experimenting with his lineups -- Vonleh replaced Ed Davis in the starting five at the last minute tonight. Vonleh has barely been in the rotation and will need to string together a few nice games before getting on the standard-league radar.
Nov 15 - 7:54 PM

Noah Vonleh, and not Ed Davis, will be in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Hornets.

Terry Stotts has again pulled a fast one on us, changing the starting lineup at the very last second, despite Ed Davis originally being listed as the starter. It's going to be tough to predict who gets the start at the power forward spot for however long Meyers Leonard (shoulder) is out with Stotts at the helm, but it'll likely be Davis, Vonleh and Kaman fluctuating in and out of the starting five based on the matchup. We'll let you know how Vonleh fares in his first career start against the team that drafted him following the game.

Noah Vonleh had two fouls in seven minutes on Friday.

He had the ol' 0.0 usage rate, 0.0 rebound rate, and 0.0 anything-but-foul rate tonight. Vonleh has potential, but he has some work to do. Maybe he'll pick up steam if there's another injury to the frontcourt.
Nov 14 - 2:20 AM

Noah Vonleh scored two points in seven minutes against the Spurs on Wednesday with two rebounds.

He's technically the No. 2 power forward on the roster, so he's at least on the radar in very deep leagues. The problem is that Vonleh's style of play doesn't mesh well with the Blazers backcourt with just seven minutes all year next to Damian Lillard and C.J. McCollum. If you want to take a flier in a very deep league in hopes coach Terry Stotts changes his tune and have garbage at the end of your roster, give Vonleh a look. He could start.
Nov 12 - 1:57 AM

Noah Vonleh played 14 minutes against the Pelicans on Wednesday with two points and one turnover.

Sure, Vonleh does have some potential, but he has disappeared at times last year and has sub-par shot selection. Considering he's more of a high-post player and doesn't have 3-point range, he's got his work cut out for himself to fit into the offense right off the bat.
Oct 29 - 1:34 AM

Terry Stotts praised Noah Vonleh for his willingness to learn.

"I think the thing that has stood out to me the most about Noah is really what a willing and attentive learner he is,"Stotts said. "He really is a hard working player. He works well with all the coaches. And we’re working on everything, inside, outside, offense and defense, ball-handling, learning the NBA game." Vonleh is projected to be the second big off the bench this season, so owners in deeper leagues can simply keep an eye on him for now.

Noah Vonleh showed some skills against the Clippers on Thursday, scoring nine points with seven rebounds and one assist.

He was very good facing up and showed nice touch, making all four shots from the field. Vonleh still looks like the fourth big on the totem pole, but keep an eye on him in deep leagues.
Oct 23 - 1:16 AM

Noah Vonleh double-doubled off the bench in Monday's preseason opener against the Kings, scoring 12 points on 5-of-10 shooting with 11 boards in 26 minutes.

Vonleh stepped on a teammate's foot and had his ankle taped after the game but all indications are that he's fine. The stat line was empty in the money counting categories of treys, steals and blocks, but he looks like he has filled out and the skill is there to make an impact in fantasy leagues if all goes well. He's somebody to have on your radar as things unfold in Portland.
Oct 6 - 1:07 AM

The Trail Blazers picked up Noah Vonleh's third-year option on Wednesday.

Vonleh was acquired in the deal that sent Nicolas Batum to Charlotte. His rookie season was ruined by injury, limiting him to 10.3 minutes in 25 appearances, and the Hornets were reportedly worried about his ability to learn sets and adjust to the speed of the NBA. The Blazers have significant depth at PF with Meyers Leonard and Ed Davis, so for now Vonleh should go undrafted in typical leagues.

Noah Vonleh was working on his corner 3-pointers in Wednesday's practice.

He had 13 attempts from deep last year and all of them were above the break. Vonleh was solid from deep in Las Vegas, making 5-of-10 in his four games. He should be in the rotation and has some upside, so keep a close eye on him. He's not quite worth drafting in 12-team leagues just yet.
Sep 30 - 3:40 PM

The Blazers were high on Noah Vonleh in the 2014 draft.

The Blazers didn't have a pick in the 2014 draft, so definitely take this Neil Olshey quote with a grain of salt. That said, the team made him the focal point at Summer League and they added his contract to help build around Damian Lillard. At worst, he's a late-round flier and he could climb to the 100-120 range with a really strong camp.
