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.

Steven Adams had a lackluster performance in a loss to the Clippers on Tuesday, going for just four points (2-of-6 FGs), 10 rebounds and two assists in 27 minutes.
Adams has had a streaky season, so hopefully this isn't part of the beginning over another slow stretch for the big man. He's still a hold in standard leagues at this point. Danilo Gallinari's line was also a bit empty with some poor shooting: 15 points (4-of-13 FGs, 3-of-5 FTs), four treys, four boards and a steal in 29 minutes.

Danilo Gallinari (left ankle) is not on Tuesday's injury report after missing Friday's game.
Gallinari was sitting out the second game of a back-to-back, so he was expected to be back. Still, given his injury history, it's nice to get confirmation that there's nothing actually wrong with him.
February 28, 2020, 8:08 pmHamidou DialloSG, Oklahoma City Thunder
Hamidou Diallo will start for an injured Danilo Gallinari (left ankle) on Friday evening in the Thunder's road game against the Bucks.
Diallo has offered solid production in limited action this season, and his per-36 numbers reflect that. If he were getting those types of minutes every night, he would be sitting at 12.0 points per game and 6.4 boards per game. That said, nobody is expecting Diallo to get anywhere close to that much playing time on Friday. The Thunder are too balanced and too deep for him to carry any fantasy value.

Danilo Gallinari (left ankle soreness) has been ruled out of Friday's game against the Bucks.
Gallinari dropped 24 points on Thursday night so this looks like the Thunder taking it easy on one of their key players. You can never completely brush off an injury with Gallinari, but for now you can expect him back in short order. Hamidou Diallo and Abdel Nader should see extra minutes tonight.

Danilo Gallinari had a game-high 24 points with six boards, one steal and four triples in Thursday's 112-108 win over the Kings.
Gallinari has put together another strong fantasy season by his standards, mainly due to the fact that he's stayed healthy. He came into tonight in a bit of a funk, but his past two games have been much more in line with his normal play. The Rooster has been huge for the Thunder lately, especially in crunch time, so enjoy the ride.

Danilo Gallinari heated up early in Tuesday's game and was able to finish with 24 points on 8-of-16 shooting, including five 3s with four rebounds and one steal in 32 minutes.
Gallinari has held steady as a top-50 player on the season and given his role with the Thunder, there's no reason to think he would slide from that pace.

The Thunder held trade talks at the deadline with the Heat on a deal involving Danilo Gallinari, but he ultimately remained with the franchise and he is happy about it.
“I really wanted to stay here. It would be tough to leave such a great atmosphere, great teammates, a group that is winning," said Gallinari. "I wanted to stay.” Oklahoma has been one of the most pleasant surprises of the season and this has to do with Gallinari playing at a high level, averaging 19.1 points and 5.6 rebounds while making a career-high 2.9 triples per game. The Rooster is returning top-50 value for the season and the hope is that he can remain healthy until the end.

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander notched 11 points (4-for-14 shooting), nine rebounds, nine assists and a block in Friday's win over the Nuggets.
SGA did some good things in this one despite struggling with his shot. He mostly fed off Chris Paul who dominated the end of the game for the Thunder. Danilo Gallinari finished with 15 points (4-for-14 shooting), three rebounds, two assists, two triples and one seal in 32 minutes.
