    Hamidou Diallo scored a career-best 27 points (4-of-8 3PT) on Friday in an OT loss to the Clippers.

    Diallo actually set a number of career marks against the Clippers, including 3-pointers made and attempted, FG made (10) and attempted (22), rebounds (11), FTs attempted (five, tied) and minutes played (40). The Thunder, as with so many of the other teams in the bubble, were sitting a good chunk of their regular rotation guys in anticipation of their first-round playoff clash with the Rockets. Still, it's a nice effort from Diallo, who has always shown his freak athleticism when he gets the chance to play.

    Luguentz Dort came away with nine points, 10 rebounds, a block and a 3-pointer in Sunday's win over the Wizards.

    Dort got busy in his 26 minutes and should be getting steady run while Dennis Schroder is out of the bubble. OKC was forced to go a bit smaller today, which also helped his case, but Dort's been above 30 minutes in every bubble game prior to today. With three double-digit scoring games under his belt in Orlando, Dort should be on rosters in most resumption leagues, even if he's far from a household name. Hamidou Diallo also had a solid game on the wing, scoring 13 points with six boards, a steal and a three in 26 minutes off the bench. Dort remains the superior play given his more stable role.

    Hamidou Diallo had a nice stat line in the Thunder's scrimmage vs. the Blazers on Tuesday, finishing with 16 points, five rebounds, three steals and a 3-pointer in 21 minutes of action.

    Diallo has struggled with injuries over the last calendar year but has been solidly in the Thunder rotation when healthy. He's going to have to hit threes with more consistency than has thus far in 2019-20 (just 20 percent from deep in 18 minutes per game) to be a factor in seeding games or into the playoffs for his team. The Thunder's first seeding game is on Saturday (vs. the Jazz) and it will be interesting to see how coach Billy Donovan decides to use Diallo from the outset. He has the ability to be a little more than just an option off the bench with his athleticism and flair for the dramatic.

    Hamidou Diallo delivered top-350 fantasy value in 2019-20 while playing around a few injuries and setting a career-high with 18.7 mpg.

    Diallo missed time with a left knee sprain and a right knee hyperextension but was a part of OKC's wing group when healthy. The fact that he shot just 20.0% from deep hurts his future outlook significantly, as the athletic Diallo is still missing half of the 3-and-D profile. He might get some deep-league value as a steals specialist, but that will be contingent on his minutes rising in the coming years.

    Hamidou Diallo started on Friday for a resting Danilo Gallinari but didn't produce anything noteworthy with just four points on 2-of-7 shooting with three rebounds and one steal.

    Diallo is not any fantasy radars right now and will lose the starting gig immediately when Gallo returns to action in the next game. Leave Diallo on the wire.

    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.

    Terrance Ferguson (illness) left the game after seven minutes and finished the game without recording a single stat on Friday.

    Terrance Ferguson left the game early and could be at risk of missing Saturday's game against the Blazers. Hamidou Diallo (11 points in 23 minutes) and Darius Bazley (four points in 15 minutes) could see extra run on Saturday is Ferguson is sidelined, but neither player is worth streaming outside of 16-team leagues.

  • Danilo Gallinari
    SF, Oklahoma City Thunder

    Danilo Gallinari (calf contusion) has been ruled out of Tuesday's matchup with the Nets.

    Gallinari, who recently returned from ankle soreness, is now dealing with another injury to his lower body. Gallinari has never been the most durable player throughout his career but was able to suit up for 68 games last season. With top-60/75 per-game value in 9/8 cat leagues, owners will have to hope the veteran can avoid the bumps and bruises over the next few months. Hamidou Diallo and Darius Bazley will pick up extra minutes on Tuesday.

    Hamidou Diallo (hyperextended elbow) returned from a 17-game absence on Tuesday and churned out four points and a steal in 19 minutes.

    Diallo jumped right back into the mix and while this isn't notable, he did log the most of any wing player in this one. He's back on the deep-league radar but he's far from a must-add, even in 20-team leagues.

  • Danilo Gallinari
    SF, Oklahoma City Thunder

    Danilo Gallinari (left ankle soreness), Hamidou Diallo (right elbow hyperextension sprain) and Dennis Schroder (right ankle soreness) are all available for Tuesday's game against the Mavs.

    In the absence of these three, Darius Bazley, Luguentz Dort and Abdel Nader picked up most of the slack. Downgrade them appropriately.

    Hamidou Diallo (hyperextended elbow) is being listed as questionable to play against the Mavs on Tuesday.

    The last we heard on Diallo's status was back in November, but the re-evaluation seemingly went well. He looks to be on the verge of making his return, even if he were to miss a few more games. Diallo can be monitored on the waiver wire for now.

    Hamidou Diallo will be re-evaluated in 4-6 weeks after suffering a hyperextended right elbow.

    Diallo was already set to miss the next two games, but the injury ended up being more serious. Abdel Nader and Terrance Ferguson are likely to pick up the slack.

    Hamidou Diallo will not play on Monday or Wednesday due to a sprained right elbow.

    Diallo already dealt with a knee sprain before injuring his elbow on Friday against the Lakers. Diallo is averaging 8.8 points and 3.8 rebounds in 21.3 minutes per game this season but has had trouble staying on the court. Abdel Nader could see a few more minutes in the meantime.

    Hamidou Diallo (sprained right elbow) has been ruled out on Monday vs. the Warriors.

    He was just making his way back from a knee sprain and injured his elbow trying to get in front of Lebron James on Friday. Terrance Ferguson will pick up some extra minutes in his absence.

    Hamidou Diallo hurt his arm after a blocking foul trying to stop a LeBron James drive, prompting Diallo to sprint to the locker room after the play on Friday.

    Diallo is just returning from a left knee sprain, so it's awful luck that he's hurting his arm at this time.
