According to Adrian Wojnarowski, the Thunder may not be active in trade talks during the 2019-20 regular season and may look to move Danilo Gallinari and Dennis Schroder during the offseason.
Of the two, Woj said he could only envision Danilo Gallinari being moved this season as he's on an expiring contract. Otherwise, he insists the Thunder could be interested in an offseason sign-and-trade to unload their starting PF during the summer, at which point Dennis Schroder would become a more attractive trade asset given that he'll enter the 2020-21 season on an expiring contract. The Thunder have many trade chips in the form of picks and players and a long-term plan to rebuild that allows them to bide their time on the trade market, not dissimilar to the strategy Danny Ainge employed for the better half of this decade after blowing up his Celtics' squad. There is no need to accelerate the rebuild in OKC if it means selling their veterans at a discount or potentially dangling one of their first-round draft picks as bait. Both Gallinari's and Schroder's value should be stable moving forward.

Danilo Gallinari (left ankle sprain) has been ruled out of Monday's game.
This one comes out of nowhere, and fantasy GMs have to be bristling given Gallinari's injury tendencies. Hopefully he's not out long, as he's producing easy middle-round numbers this season. Expect the Thunder's guards to get extra shots up tonight, with Abdel Nader, Darius Bazley and Mike Muscala potential fill-ins at the power forward spot.

Danilo Gallinari was steady as ever on Sunday as he led the Thunder to a 107-104 victory against the Pelicans, dropping 23 points (8-of-14 FG), 11 rebounds, three assists and four 3-pointers.
Gallinari has had no trouble adjusting to life as a member of the Thunder. He has been on an impressive injury-free streak over the last two seasons, and with the potential of a mid-season trade also lingering, this could be a sell-high moment for Gallinari's owners.

Danilo Gallinari did a little bit of everything in a win over the Pelicans on Friday, putting up 17 points (5-of-11 FGs, 4-of-4 FTs), seven rebounds, five assists, three 3-pointers, a steal and a block in 27 minutes.
Gallinari's numbers have been very similar to last season's marks with the Clippers. His field goal percentage won't likely bounce back up to last year's career-high, but that just means that he's providing fifth/fourth-round value (8-cat/9-cat) instead of third, which is probably a bargain for almost all that drafted him.
November 22, 2019, 11:14 pmSteven AdamsC, Oklahoma City Thunder
Steven Adams scored a season-high 22 points with six rebounds and four assists in Friday's loss to the Lakers.
Adams also hit all four of his free throws which is a welcome surprise to be sure. Danilo Gallinari started alongside Adams and added 15 points (5-for-13 shooting), four rebounds, three assists, two triples and a steal.

Danilo Gallinari had a very efficient night, scoring 25 points on 7-of-11 field goals and 7-of-9 free throws vs. the Lakers on Tuesday.
Gallinari added six rebounds, two 3-pointers and one assist in 31 minutes. Gallo is once again sneakily providing top-60/50 (8-cat/9-cat). Elsewhere in the frontcourt, Steven Adams had a rough game with just two points, six rebounds and four assists in 24 minutes.

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander had a subdued performance against his former team, the Clippers on Monday, going 4-for-10 from the field for 11 points, one rebound, one steal and one trey in 31 minutes.
SGA is coming off a 24-point performance vs. the Sixers on Saturday, so this missed-out revenge game was a bit of a downer. He should bounce back in his next game. Danilo Gallinari exuded a bit more confidence but also struggled with his shot, going 3-of-13 from the floor for 14 points, two 3s, five rebounds an two assists.
November 15, 2019, 11:45 pmDanilo GallinariSF, Oklahoma City Thunder
Danilo Gallinari went 7-of-13 from the floor and 11-for-11 at the line in Friday's 127-119 win over the Sixers, adding seven rebounds and three 3-pointers in 36 minutes.
Gallinari hasn't gotten a ton of love this season but is snugly in the top-50 with strong stats across the board. He might deal with a mid-season change assuming the Thunder trade him to a contender, but Gallo's got a middle-round floor as long as he's healthy.

Danilo Gallinari finished with 14 points, four rebounds, and one steal on 3-of-8 shooting on Tuesday but was able to nail all eight of his attempts at the foul line.
Gallo didn't have a great game but was able to minimize the damage to fantasy rosters by going perfect at the foul line (8-of-8). He and the Thunder will look to rebound on Friday as they take on the Sixers.
November 10, 2019, 10:03 pmDanilo GallinariSF, Oklahoma City Thunder
Danilo Gallinari scored 14 points along with seven rebounds and two steals, but had an awful night overall on Sunday, going 4-of-17 from the field vs. the Bucks.
While it was not a good line overall, at least Gallinari was able to deliver some numbers alongside the ugly shooting. For the season his shot has been reliable, and no signs of injury have emerged yet. It would not be the worst idea to sell high in case an injury or trade to a contender were to occur. A trade is likely to lower the Rooster's value.
November 9, 2019, 11:07 pmDanilo GallinariSF, Oklahoma City Thunder
Danilo Gallinari led the Thunder in scoring with 19 points to go with five rebounds, three assists and a steal in Saturday's win over the Warriors.
Gallinari was 6-of-11 from the field with 4-of-6 from behind the arc and 3-of-4 from the line. For the season he is shooting above 45 percent from both the field and from behind the arc and 94 percent from the line. This type of efficiency is fantastic as it is coupled with high attempt numbers, making it more of a fantasy boon than players with higher percentages but lower shot attempts.

Danilo Gallinari led the Thunder in scoring in their 112-121 loss to the Spurs on Thursday with 27 points to go with five boards, an assist, two steals and five 3-pointers.
Gallinari shot 7-for-10 from the field and 5-for-6 from deep which insanely hot and also capped his night off by going 8-for-9 from the line. He's always been able to put up nice scoring numbers and the Thunder have no reason to not let him shoot the ball to his heart's content. He just needs to stay healthy, which hasn't been a problem recently.
October 28, 2019, 10:36 pmDanilo GallinariSF, Oklahoma City Thunder
Danilo Gallinari scored 17 points on 6-of-17 shooting with five rebounds, three assists and two triples on Monday.
Gallinari got the P.J. Tucker treatment tonight which explains the bad shooting and low free throws, but he was still able to put up his averages. He hasn't ceded any usage on his new team and will look to get his shooting on track Wednesday against the Blazers.
October 24, 2019, 12:59 amDanilo GallinariSF, Oklahoma City Thunder
Danilo Gallinari scored efficiently on Wednesday posting 21 points while shooting 7-of-13 from the field and 5-of-5 from the free throw line.
Gallinari added seven rebounds and two threes to his impressive shooting performance. Gallinari was a top-30 player last season shooting 46 percent from the field and 90 percent from the line on six attempts per game. The Thunder need scorers and Gallinari can provide that while also boosting both percentage categories. Gallinari is a boom-or-bust player with great per-game production but also a long history of injuries.
October 16, 2019, 10:57 pmDennis SchroderPG, Oklahoma City Thunder
With Chris Paul out on Wednesday, Dennis Schroder moved into the starting five but disappointed with eight points (3-of-9 shooting) and six assists.
Schroder added two threes and a steal so it wasn't a total waste but DFS players were hoping for much more. Though there are questions about his fit with CP3 and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander around, Schroder still figures to play a ton as the team's sixth man and could be in for a big finish if Paul gets traded or shut down. He's a fine selection in the last few rounds of all drafts. Danilo Gallinari also had an off night, going 3-of-12 from the field en route to 16 points and 10 rebounds.
