The Thunder hit it big by getting Paul George to re-sign, giving them a window with two superstars into what they hope is the next uncertain era of the West. Poorly-timed injuries ultimately prevented the…

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.

In 29 minutes, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander provided 16 points (7-for-16 FGs, 2-for-2 FTs) and eight rebounds but also five turnovers and zero assists in a 107-70 loss to the Mavs on Monday.
It was a mixed bag for SGA, but he's still looking like a good pick in the middle rounds. Dennis Schroder started and hit just one of his 10 field goal attempts, though he did pass out six assists.

Dennis Schroder was held out of practice on Saturday with a thigh contusion.
Coach Billy Donovan said that Schroder's injury was "nothing major" and that this was just an opportunity to give him some rest. He has remained in the starting lineup in preseason even with the addition of Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and Chris Paul so maybe Schroder can carve out late-round value in standard leagues but his limited stat set suggests there may be more interesting options available.

Dennis Schroder started and was surprisingly efficient in a win over the Mavs on Tuesday, shooting 5-for-6 from the field and knocking down both is shots from the line en route to 13 points, six rebounds, five assists and a 3-pointer in just 22 minutes.
The Thunder threw all three of their point guards into the starting lineup tonight, which won't likely happen on a regular basis. Schroder is a nice late-round pick, but unless Chris Paul gets traded and a playable point guard isn't part of the return, Schroder isn't going to make much of an impact this season.

The Thunder will start Chris Paul, Dennis Schroder, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, Danilo Gallinari and Steven Adams against the Mavs in preseason action on Tuesday.
It's full-on small ball for the Thunder in this preseason action against the Mavs. Starting two short guards in CP3 and Schroder, both under 6-foot-1, is a bit interesting to say the least, especially against a Mavs backcourt featuring 6-foot-5 guards. Hopefully Donovan is tinkering with lineups for preseason purposes.

Maxi Kleber scored 20 points (7-of-10 shooting) with four rebounds, two threes, a block and two steals in Monday's victory over Team Canada.
Aside from the scoring, this is the sort of work that fantasy players can expect from Kleber. He probably won't get 29 minutes a night from the Mavs but his stat set is rock solid and he makes for an excellent selection in the last couple rounds of standard-league drafts. Dennis Schroder is also a nice late-round choice and put up 21 points, 10 rebounds, nine assists, three steals, a block and a 3-pointer as his nice tournament carries on.

Dennis Schroder led the way with 24 points (8-of-14 shooting) in Germany's victory over Senegal on Saturday, adding six rebounds, 12 assists, four 3-pointers and only two turnovers.
Schroder predictably dominated inferior competition, though it's still a disappointment for the Germans that they ended up in the relegation round. He's going to be OKC's sixth man again this season and might provide value at the end of drafts, as we anticipate the Thunder leaning on some two-PG lineups given all the moves this summer. Daniel Theis chipped in 14 points, five rebounds and two blocks and is competing for the backup center minutes in Boston.

Dennis Schroder put up 10 points, 11 assists, two treys and a steal in a blowout win against Jordan on Thursday.
Germany and Schroder had their way against Jordan on Thursday winning by 34 points. Maxi Kleber chipped in with 18 points, three rebounds and a steal and block while Daniel Theis had seven points and four rebounds.

Dennis Schroder scored 20 points, shooting just 5-of-18 from the floor, as Germany was upset by Dominican Republic on Tuesday by a 70-68 score.
Schroder did add seven assists in 34 minutes of action but he failed to lead Germany to a win. Maxi Kleber was invincible with zero points and just two blocks in 15 minutes of action as Germany is now in real danger of not advancing to the next round. Meanwhile, with Chris Paul and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander landing in Oklahoma, Schroder’s role seems murky for the upcoming year.

Dennis Schroder scored 23 points on 7-of-19 shooting to go with eight assists four rebounds and three steals in a losing effort against Team France.
Schroder has played well in a leading role for Team Germany, but was simply outmatched by the level of NBA talent Team France is rolling with. He is likely going to be OKC's third guard behing Chris Paul and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, limiting his potential to be a top-100 guy in fantasy leagues this season.

Dennis Schroder scored 19 points to lead Germany to a 83-62 win vs. Hungary as the teams prepare for the Wold Cup.
Schroder filled the box score tonight by adding three rebounds, seven assists, one steal, one block and four treys. He will come off the bench again next season behind Chris Paul and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander. Anyone who drafts the often-injured Chris Paul may want to handcuff him with Schroder. Fellow countryman Daniel Theis scored 11 points with six rebounds, two assists and one steal.

Dennis Schroder went for 17 points on 7-of-10 from the field in addition to two rebounds, three assists, two treys and just one turnover in 33 minutes in Tuesday's Game 5 loss.
That makes it three straight games of 17 points and two threes for Schroder. It'll be interesting to see if he can carve out a slightly bigger role as he returns to OKC next season with the Thunder possibly looking to make some changes.

Dennis Schroder mirrored his 17-point performance from Friday with another 17-point game in Sunday's loss to the Blazers.
Schroder shot 6-of-12 from the field and added three rebounds, three assists, two 3s and one steal to the box score tonight. Aside from him though, the Thunder's bench was deafeningly quiet. He cannot carry the load of the second unit's scoring output by his lonesome, especially when they're faced up against a team with multiple weapons like the Blazers. For now, the Thunder can only hope he keeps this up and that the other reserves will follow suit.

Dennis Schroder logged 32 minutes with 17 points, six assists, five rebounds, two triples and two steals on Friday night.
Shroder and the Oklahoma City guards were able to exploit Enes Kanter routinely in this one as the steady diet of points ultimately led to them notching their first win of the season. This group is much more confident at home – look for the same intensity as they attempt to even the series at two games apiece on Sunday night.
