Josh Huestis scored four points with none rebounds, one assist and two blocks in 30 minutes against the Lakers on Wednesday.
He moved to the bench after his start on Sunday, but he still played 14 minutes in the first half and 16 in the second half. Huestis' defense has helped him climb into the rotation lately, and he could see minutes in the 20s with both Alex Abrines and Andre Roberson banged up. There won't be many shots for him, which means he's really just a desperation streamer. Jan 4 - 1:46 AM

Josh Huestis failed to score as a fill-in starter on Sunday, going 0-of-3 from the field with one rebound, one steal and one block in 19 minutes.

Andre Roberson (left patellar tendinitis) was out tonight and his defense was sorely missed, as OKC gave up 116 points on 51.7% shooting to the visiting Mavs. Roberson is just day-to-day, but there's obviously no reason to grab Huestis even if Roberson does miss more games.

Josh Huestis started the third quarter over Alex Abrines against the Bucks on Friday.

Abrines got burnt for most of the half, so starting Huestis was a fairly easy call here.

Josh Huestis scored a career-high nine points in 22 minutes on Sunday, making 3-of-7 shots with all of his attempts coming from downtown.

Huestis stepped up in the absence of Carmelo Anthony (back), adding two steals, one rebound, one assist and one block before fouling out. The fact that nine points was a career-high tells fantasy owners all they need to know.

The Thunder will reportedly decline the fourth-year option on Josh Huestis' contract.

OKC would have owed Huestis $2.2 million and declining his option could give them a bit of extra wiggle-room as they try to lock up their superstar core for the future. Through six games this season, Huestis is averaging 1.8 points and 2.2 rebounds, while shooting 23.5 percent from the field.

Josh Huestis scored three points with three rebounds, one steal and one 3-pointer in 26 minutes against the Pacer on Wednesday.

He seems to have secured a rotation spot and has played some really strong defense. Of course, there just won't be enough shots to go around on this team, so you'd have to be in a super deep league to add Huestis.

Josh Huestis came out of nowhere to score 15 points with nine rebounds, one steal and four 3-pointers in 22 minutes vs. the Nuggets on Tuesday.

Huestis has been stashed in the G-League for the past couple years and has seven NBA games under his belt, but maybe he's ready to contribute this season. We could see him passing Kyle Singler on the depth chart, but there aren't many minutes available at the three and four with Paul George and Carmelo Anthony in town. Huestis is not on the fantasy radar.

Josh Huestis has been recalled from the D-League.

Sweet.

Josh Huestis has been assigned to the Thunder's D-League affiliate.

The second-year forward has only made it onto the court one time this season, for a grand total of seven minutes.

The Thunder exercised the third-year options on Josh Huestis and Cameron Payne.

Even though Huestis barely plays, it doesn't cost much to pick him up to see what he can do. In the preseason, he averaged 5.4 points per game. There was hope he'd get in the rotation, but it hasn't happened yet.

Josh Huestis believes that he can crack the rotation for the Thunder this season.

After appearing in just five games for the Thunder last season, there's suddenly a lot of playing time available in OKC with Kevin Durant and Serge Ibaka out of the picture. "Of course. Obviously, losing Kevin opens up a lot of minutes," Huestis said. "I'm just trying to be somebody who can step in and contribute, help the team win in whatever capacity that is." Huestis will be competing with Andre Roberson, Kyle Singler, Anthony Morrow and Ersan Ilyasova, so there's certainly a path to minutes in OKC for the 24-year-old combo forward. For now, he's only worth monitoring in very deep leagues.

Josh Huestis will play in 2016 summer league.

While it will be good for the 24-year-old to get some extra experience, Huestis only appeared in five games during the 2015-16 regular season and can be ignored in all fantasy leagues.

Thunder coach Billy Donovan could give Josh Huestis a look during the last three games of the season.

"Going forward, we'll evaluate that," Donovan said. "I'm not going to say we know for sure we're gonna all of a sudden throw him in there the last three games a lot of minutes. But it's good to see him progressing the way he has." Huestis played 21 minutes vs. Portland and had six points, six boards, one block, one steal and two treys with OKC resting their stars, but the Thunder should at least entertain the idea of giving him another look because Kyle Singler hasn't played well at all.

Josh Huestis has been sent down for a D-League stint.

He's played in just two games this season.

Josh Huestis scored a career-high five points on Monday vs. the Pistons, adding one board, one 3-pointer and one block in 16 minutes.

This was just his second career appearance, but he isn't going to be in the rotation when Kevin Durant (rest) is active. Leave him on the wire.
