Carmelo Anthony had an efficient game on Sunday, going 6-of-10 from the field on his way to 15 points, three 3-pointers, two rebounds, two assists and one steal in 34 minutes.
Anthony hit a clutch, spot-up corner 3 late to help seal the deal for OKC, and he seems to finally be figuring out that he's far more effective as a catch-and-shoot (54.1% EFG) guy as opposed to an isolation, jump shooter (42.7% EFG). The arrival of Corey Brewer has perhaps accelerated that development, as since Brewer's arrival, 63% of Melo's shot attempts have been of the catch-and-shoot variety, whereas his pull-ups now make up just 17.8% of his shot attempts.

Carmelo Anthony tied his career-high with four blocks vs. Atlanta on Tuesday, adding four rebounds and 21 points on 7-of-15 shooting in 29 minutes.

Melo went 6-of-11 from deep and perimeter shooting continues to dominate his offensive role with the Thunder. He's attempting a career-low 15.5 field goals per game this season, yet he's also attempting a career-high 6.0 triples. That's part of the reason his percentages have cratered (40.7% FGs), and it's a trade-off that's hurt him more than it's helped in most formats.

Carmelo Anthony will play on Tuesday against the Hawks.

Melo was randomly rested on a back-to-back set to begin the month of March, but it appears that'll be a one-time thing. Feel free to get him active for a favorable matchup against Atlanta.
Mar 13 - 6:11 PM

Carmelo Anthony hit 7-of-14 shots and five 3-pointers for 21 points, six rebounds, a steal and a block in 32 minutes of Monday's win over the Kings.

Melo had just two points on 1-of-8 shooting on Saturday, so his owners had to be thrilled with his bounce-back game tonight. The Thunder are in must-win mode in a tight playoff race, so Melo will have to play well on a nightly basis to help OKC stay in a playoff slot. Start him if you've got him.
Mar 12 - 10:48 PM

Carmelo Anthony ended up with just two points in Saturday's 104-94 victory against the Spurs.

Anthony hit just 1-of-8 from the field, including 0-of-3 from behind the 3-point line. He added seven rebounds, two assists, a steal and a blocked shot, but he also had two turnovers and a minus-13 rating in the ugly outing. Fantasy owners expect much more from 'Melo, not just a measly deuce in the scoring column. He'll look to get untracked against the Kings on Monday.
Mar 10 - 11:29 PM

Carmelo Anthony hit 8-of-18 shots and four 3-pointers for 23 points, four rebounds and one steal in 33 minutes in Tuesday's 122-112 loss to the Rockets after getting a day off on Saturday against the Blazers.

The day off apparently did him some good, as he had failed to score more than 14 points in his previous three games. His lack of peripheral stats tonight was disappointing, but at least he scored and hit some threes. The No. 7 Thunder are clinging to playoff life right now, sitting just a game ahead of the No. 8 Clippers and No. 9 Nuggets, with the red-hot No. 10 Jazz just 2.0 games back, so they'll need to continue to get strong play from Melo down the stretch.
Mar 6 - 11:02 PM

Carmelo Anthony (rest) will play Tuesday vs. the Rockets.

Anthony spent the second game of a back-to-back set on the sidelines on Saturday, but he'll be back out there with his regular workload tonight, which will bump Patrick Patterson back to the second unit and Jerami Grant won't play quite as much.
Mar 6 - 6:27 PM

Carmelo Anthony (rest) is out for Saturday's game against the Blazers.

This is kind of a surprise that the Thunder would rest Melo tonight in a huge matchup against the No. 3 seeded Blazers and not against the Suns on Friday. Anthony's minutes are slightly up since the breakout 33.0 per game, but he's made just 35.8 percent from the field in that span. It'll be Jerami Grant getting some extra minutes along with Alex Abrines, Corey Brewer and Terrance Ferguson.
Mar 3 - 4:38 PM

Carmelo Anthony returned from a two-game absence with an ankle injury and hit 10-of-22 shots and three 3-pointers for 24 points, seven rebounds, a steal and a block in 36 minutes of Tuesday's 120-112 loss to the Cavs.

This was his highest-scoring game since he had 29 on Jan. 20, and this was just his second 20-point game since then. Melo's not the most trustworthy guy in fantasy, but played well tonight and is still a big part of what the Thunder do. If he was dumped in your league while he was out for most of the last three games, he's probably worth grabbing.
Feb 13 - 11:34 PM

Carmelo Anthony (ankle) will play Tuesday vs. the Cavs.

Anthony has missed two straight games, but will be back in the starting lineup vs. Cleveland. Coach Billy Donovan said that there will be no minutes restrictions on Melo Tuesday night, and that he expects Anthony to play Wednesday vs. Memphis as well. Jerami Grant and Patrick Patterson will see their minutes reduced with Melo back in the mix.
Feb 13 - 6:24 PM

Carmelo Anthony (ankle) went through shootaround and is a game-time decision for Tuesday's contest vs. the Cavs.

Anthony has missed two straight games but has a chance to return to action on Tuesday, which is the front end of a back-to-back for the Thunder. Tuesday's game tips off at 8:00 pm EST, so we should have a definitive update on his status at approximately 6:30 pm. Jerami Grant and Patrick Patterson will continue to see additional minutes if Melo is unable to play.
Feb 13 - 12:41 PM

Carmelo Anthony (ankle) made it through a light practice on Monday.

Most of the practice was non-contact work and coach Billy Donovan wouldn't commit to Melo playing on Tuesday vs. the Cavaliers. He will go through the morning shootaround, so that's when his owners can expect an update. Jerami Grant and Patrick Patterson will hold down the fort if Melo can't go.
Feb 12 - 2:23 PM

Carmelo Anthony (ankle) will not play vs. Memphis on Sunday.

Melo hurt himself during Tuesday's game and this is his second straight DNP. He didn't practice on Saturday, either, and there's no clear indication when he might return. With Russell Westbrook (ankle) also out of commission, Paul George should be extremely busy tonight.
Feb 11 - 6:05 PM

Carmelo Anthony (ankle) will be a game-time decision against the Grizzlies on Sunday.

He did not practice today after sitting out on Thursday. Anthony's ankle injury did look to be worse than Russell Westbrook's issue, so there's a chance he sits out. If he does, Jerami Grant, Alex Abrines and Josh Huestis will step up.
Feb 10 - 2:18 PM

Carmelo Anthony (ankle) will not play Thursday against the Lakers.

He did a little at shootaround, but the Thunder will just hold Melo out. It doesn't sound serious, so he should be OK for Sunday. We'll see a lot of Jerami Grant, Terrance Ferguson and Josh Huestis today.
