Danilo Gallinari went ice-cold on Wednesday night, missing all three of his shots from deep and finishing with just four points on 2-of-6 shooting from the field.
Gallo managed to grab nine rebounds and one assist to go along with his poor scoring night. The Thunder forward struggled in the back half of this series, putting up nine points in Game 4 and just a single point in Game 5. While Gallo was a big piece of OKC's surprise season, on a personal level the year was a step back. In 9-cat leagues he retreated from being the 28th ranked overall player per-game to just the 64th.

Danilo Gallinaro bounced back from Game 5's dud with 25 points on 9-of-17 shooting while adding five rebounds, one assist, two steals and four triples on Monday.
Gallo hit some tough shots in isolation sets tonight and did enough on the offensive side of the floor to see 28 minutes tonight. He's still a target on defense, but if he's going to can his shots like he did in today's game, he's playable against the Rockets.

Chris Paul scored 16 points on 6-of-13 shooting, adding six rebounds, three assists, one 3-pointer and one block in Saturday's loss to the Rockets.
The Thunder as a whole were off the mark. Frustration and not conviction was showing its ugly head for them tonight. They will get a chance to regroup and hope to force a Game 7 in their next game. Danilo Gallinari was terrible, missing all five shot attempts from the field to end the night with just one point, six rebounds and one steal in his 22 minutes on the floor.

Danilo Gallinari hit the go-ahead 3-pointer to force overtime in Saturday's Game 3 win over the Rockets and came away with popping off for 20 points on 4-of-12 shooting from the field and a perfect 8-for-8 run at the line.
Most of Gallo's shot attempts came from downtown (4-of-11 3s) and he also added seven rebounds, one assist and one steal to the box score. Gallinari's heroic shot, an assist from Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, was the highlight of his night but Gallo has been a rock-solid performer for the Thunder so far in this series.

Danilo Gallinari scored 17 points on 5-of-12 shooting in Thursday's Game 2 loss and added five rebounds, one assist, one trey and two turnovers in 33 minutes.
Gallo was able to make all six of his free throw attempts during the game but the team needs to find more scoring from their main veteran guys: Gallo, Chris Paul, Dennis Schröder. Schröder struggled to impact the game off the bench, finishing with 13 points (5-of-12), five rebounds, five assists, two 3-pointers and four turnovers. Altogether, the Thunder committed six more turnovers than the Rockets, an area that needs to be improved as they look to get their first win on Saturday.

Danilo Gallinari paced the Thunder with 29 points (9-of-17 FG, 2-of-5 3PT) on Tuesday vs. the Rockets and added three rebounds, three assists and a block in the loss.
The Thunder just didn't look quite right on Tuesday and James Harden's 37-point effort sunk them. Gallinari's shot looked good, though, and they received solid production from multiple bench pieces. He played 33 minutes, his most in the bubble so far, and the Thunder can only hope he keeps stroking it like he did in Game 1.

Steven Adams played six minutes on Friday night while Danilo Gallinari and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander played nine and 14, respectively.
Billy Donovan said that the team would not ask for much from its core players tonight, which is why they played so little. If you were cruising through box scores and wondering why the productive trio was so quiet tonight, there's your answer.

Danilo Gallinari (left ankle) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Suns.
Gallo has provided consistent top-60 value all season long averaging 19.1 points and three 3-pointers on 41% shooting from behind the arc. He played 22 minutes and showed no signs of injury during Sunday's easy victory over Washington, so we are under the impression his absence on Monday is a scheduled day off in the second game of a back-to-back situation. The Thunder will be without five of their top rotation players on Monday so we can expect boosts in production from the supporting cast of Luguentz Dort, Terrance Ferguson, Darius Bazley and Hamidou Diallo.

Danilo Gallinari went 6-of-8 from the field and 5-of-5 from the line to score a quick 20 points against the Wizards on Sunday.
Gallinari has been in cruise control inside the bubble, sailing along with steady contributions in points and threes with the occasional defensive stat and strong rebounding game. Today he rounded it out with a steal and three 3-pointers, giving him multiple treys in every bubble game so far. In fact, the last time Gallo didn't hit at least two threes in a game was January 31. Keep him locked and loaded in all fantasy lineups.

Danilo Gallinari shot a perfect 7-of-7 from the free throw line on Wednesday, scoring 19 points (5-of-13 from the field) with seven rebounds and two threes in 25 minutes.
Gallinari continues to be a valuable player for the Thunder and fantasy GMs. He shot .883 from the line before the NBA restart on 4.8 attempts per game, ranking him inside the top-10 for free throw percentage value in fantasy leagues. Gallinari will continue to be a reliable scorer who also contributes threes and elite free throw percentage value for fantasy GMs.

Steven Adams limped to the locker room vs. the Lakers on Wednesday with a left knee injury.
Adams fell to the floor and was grabbing his left knee. He stayed in the game for a few minutes before exiting the game and heading to the locker room. Nerlens Noel will be the best candidate to fill in for Adams if he can't return. The Thunder could also run smaller lineups with Danilo Gallinari playing center.

Danilo Gallinari shot 4-for-9 from behind the arc and ended Monday's defeat to the Thunder with 20 points.
Gallinari went 6-for-14 from the field while adding three rebounds and two assists. He has shined with a 40.8 percent conversion rate from downtown this season. However, the Nuggets would go on to win 121-113 in overtime. Abdel Nader added 13 points in 13 minutes off the bench.

Danilo Gallinari averaged 19.2 points and 3.0 threes a night, keeping him consistently within fifth-round value in both 8/9-cat leagues.
At this point in his career we know exactly what to expect from Gallinari. When on the court, he can be a deadly, high-volume shooter that will get owners points (19.2/g) and threes (3.0/g) but not much else. He averaged a decent 5.5 rebounds, but only 2.1 assists, and barely anything on the defensive end with 0.7 steals and 0.1 blocks per game. The fact that he does not turn it over (1.3/g) and is a sharpshooter from the line (89%) keeps his value on the higher-end. Health has always been an issue in his career, but owners should be pleased with his output this season as he played in 55 of 64 contests and averaged 30.7 minutes a night. The free-agent to be dealt with trade rumors all season long and even though we are unsure of where he will end up next season, you can expect him to fall somewhere around fifth-round value.
March 8, 2020, 9:21 pmChris PaulPG, Oklahoma City Thunder
Chris Paul went off in a 105-104 win over the Celtics on Sunday with 28 points, six rebounds and seven assists.
Paul shot 9-of-19 from the field and knocked down 10 free throws in 37 minutes of action. Paul remains a top-15 option and his value is boosted even higher in games like this one when Shai Gilgeous-Alexander is out. Danilo Gallinari put up 18 points and six boards on 6-of-17 shooting. Gallinari is a lock for top-50 value for the rest of the season.

Danilo Gallinari was up to his old tricks in an easy win over the Knicks, dropping a team-high 22 points on 7-of-13 shooting from the field and 5-of-6 at the line with three triples, one rebound and two assists.
Gallinari, as long as he's not being rested, has been a steady and reliable source of efficient points (especially at the line) and threes over the season. He's a solid as they come and a lock to end 2019-20 with his safe floor of mid-round value.
