Josh Huestis moved to the bench against the Suns on Thursday with three points, four rebounds, two assists and one 3-pointer in 20 minutes.
He played the entire fourth quarter in garbage time, so even the 20 minutes are misleading. Huestis may fall out of the rotation some nights. Mar 9 - 12:26 AM

Corey Brewer will replace Josh Huestis in the starting lineup Thursday vs. the Suns.

Huestis has started ten games this season for OKC this season, but is averaging just 3.3 points, 3.8 rebounds and 0.4 assists in 20.8 minutes over those ten starts. He belongs on waivers in all fantasy formats.
Mar 8 - 6:41 PM

Josh Huestis made a start at shooting guard against the Kings on Thursday, scoring two points with two rebounds in 14 minutes.

Even with the OKC first unit scoring a bunch in the first quarter, Huestis was not really involved in the offense. Even if he does continue to start, he's not going to produce enough stats to be worthy of a scoop in most fantasy leagues.
Feb 23 - 1:11 AM

Josh Huestis will start on Thursday vs. Sacramento.

The Thunder go with a lengthly lineup here, but this could have a little to do with Alex Abrines' hip injury from last week. Huestis likely won't be getting many shots and he's probably looking at around 20-24 minutes, so he's not going to have much fantasy value. There's a chance this lineup could stick, though.
Feb 22 - 8:45 PM

Josh Huestis started on Tuesday vs. the Warriors, scoring six points with five rebounds and one block in 25 minutes.

This move could stick because the Thunder could use his defense in the first unit next to their three ball-dominant stars. Huestis isn't going to get many touches and isn't a high-usage player, so he's only worth keeping an eye on in very deep formats.
Feb 7 - 1:55 AM

Josh Huestis is starting over Terrance Ferguson on Tuesday vs. the Warriors.

Coach Billy Donovan said on Monday that he was considering a lineup change and shooting guard was always going to be the position in question. Alex Abrines has had the hot hand lately, but Huestis is the better defender and OKC could use his length tonight. He's only worth monitoring in deeper leagues for now. Ferguson may not see the floor.
Feb 6 - 10:26 PM

Josh Huestis did not score with three rebounds in six minutes against the Pistons on Saturday.

He's been one of the best under-the-radar defenders in the NBA, but Terrance Ferguson looks to be ahead of him in the wing pecking order. Huestis doesn't really have much offensive output, so leave him on the wire in even very deep leagues.
Jan 27 - 8:48 PM

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.
Fri, Dec 29, 2017 09:23:00 PM

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.
Tue, Oct 31, 2017 07:41:00 PM

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.
Thu, Oct 26, 2017 12:30:00 AM

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.
