Noah Vonleh was invisible again on Sunday, going scoreless with one turnover, two fouls and no other stats to his credit in five minutes of action.
Vonleh had 11 boards and five points as a fill-in starter vs. the Clippers on Wednesday, but he's been a non-entity since then. The Blazers have too much depth to consider Vonleh as an add in any league, even while Al-Farouq Aminu (calf) is out of commission. Nov 14 - 12:30 AM

Noah Vonleh was a DNP-CD on Friday.

Meyers Leonard had it working against the Kings, so there was no need to change it up. Vonleh will show up again at some point, but he's falling behind Leonard these days.
Nov 12 - 2:32 AM

Noah Vonleh started the first half for Al-Farouq Aminu (calf) and came off the bench in the second, finishing with five points, 11 rebounds, one assist and one 3-pointer in 26 minutes.

This lineup did not work at all with the Blazers falling behind 36-16 in the first quarter. Coach Terry Stotts has said defensive matchups are the deciding factor between Vonleh and Meyers Leonard, but this game may have hurt Vonleh the next time out. Fantasy owners shouldn't trust coach Terry Stotts' rotation outside of the top seven guys.
Nov 10 - 2:26 AM

Noah Vonleh said he will start against the Clippers on Wednesday in place of Al-Farouq Aminu (calf).

Well, this isn't a very Stotts-like move to get this info so early. Assuming that's the case, coach Terry Stotts will keep his second unit wings the same with Allen Crabbe and Evan Turner picking up most of the backup minutes. Moe Harkless played a ton of four on Tuesday and that might be the case tonight if things don't go well with Vonleh.
Nov 9 - 10:04 PM

Coach Terry Stotts said using Noah Vonleh or Meyers Leonard will depend on the matchup.

Vonleh was a DNP-CD against the Suns on Wednesday after he leapfrogged Leonard earlier in the year. The Blazers continue to talk up how hard Vonleh works in practice, but he still has a lot to overcome to get consistent minutes. Vonleh would likely need Mason Plumlee or Al-Farouq Aminu to miss time to get consistent run.

Noah Vonleh was a DNP-CD against the Suns on Wednesday.

He gets a lot of press in the Portland media for going hard in practice and he had a solid start to his season. However, Vonleh did fall off on Tuesday against the Warriors and it bumped him tonight. Coach Terry Stotts will likely mix and match his bench big men throughout the year.
Nov 3 - 1:32 AM

Noah Vonleh, who had 11 points, a block and a 3-pointer on Tuesday, played just 10 minutes and finished with six points, a turnover, and nothing else in Thursday's loss to the Clippers.

He was a hot pickup in 30-team leagues after Tuesday's performance, but Thursday brought us all back to reality. if the production isn't enough of a reason to be concerned, the 10 minutes should seal the deal.
Oct 28 - 2:00 AM

Noah Vonleh hit all five of his shots vs. the Jazz on Tuesday, finishing with 11 points, one rebound, one block and one triple in 16 minutes.

He wasn’t expected to be in the rotation a few weeks ago, but he earned a role with a very strong preseason. Vonleh showed a smooth touch on his jumpers tonight and he made a strong case for more minutes. The Portland frontcourt is very crowded, so deep-league owners can simply just keep an eye on him. We'll let you know if his role grows.

Portland has exercised their fourth-year team options on Noah Vonleh and Shabazz Napier.

Neither guy is expected to make an impact in standard fantasy leagues this season.
Oct 24 - 12:18 PM

Blazers President of Basketball Operations Neil Olshey and coach Terry Stotts have encouraged Noah Vonleh to be a "monster."

He certainly looked like one in his preseason debut on Friday, notching 14 points, 14 rebounds and one assist in just 20 minutes. Vonleh was on the shelf for about five weeks with a thigh injury, but he looked healthy last night and is hoping to make a case for minutes in Portland's crowded frontcourt. He's not projected to be in the rotation right out of the gate, but he at least gave the Blazers coaching staff something to think about moving forward.

Noah Vonleh (thigh) scored 14 points with 14 rebounds and one assist in 20 minutes on Friday.

Not a bad first preseason game. Vonleh was a major disappointment in Las Vegas Summer League back in July and didn't do much during his sophomore season in 2015-16. Even if he plays lights out the rest of this month, Vonleh probably won't make the rotation.
Oct 8 - 12:39 AM

Noah Vonleh (thigh) will play on Friday against the Suns.

He went through practice on Wednesday and Thursday. The Blazers added some depth at the forward spots, so Vonleh is going to have a tough time making the rotation.
Oct 7 - 8:19 PM

Noah Vonleh (thigh) went through all portions of Wednesday and Thursday's practices.

Vonleh was initially given a 3-4 week timetable after having a bone fragment removed from his right thigh, and while he has gone one week past that initial timeline, it does appear he's getting close to returning to the court. However, Vonleh will be fighting for minutes in an incredibly crowded frontcourt this year, so he's not worth the attention of owners in any format. For what it's worth, Terry Stotts said he's hopeful that Vonleh can play Friday vs. Phoenix.
Oct 6 - 3:58 PM

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.

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.
