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.

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.
Tue, Dec 13, 2016 10:34:00 PM

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.

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.
Sat, Nov 12, 2016 02:32:00 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.
Thu, Nov 10, 2016 02:26:00 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.
Wed, Nov 9, 2016 10:04:00 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.
