Shai Gilgeous-Alexander put together a well-rounded line on Wednesday, ending with 14 points, four boards, four assists, a steal and a block on 4-of-11 shooting.
SGA is struggling with efficiency and has been outside the top-130 over the last two weeks. His ability to pitch in with other stats is promising and some buy-low offers would be advised before he heats up.

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander scored 20 points on 7-of-20 shooting while adding six rebounds, three assists, two steals and two 3-pointers on Monday against the Jazz.
SGA is still struggling to score the ball in an efficient manner and the 4-for-6 mark that line doesn't do him any favors. He's in a bit of a slump and is too talented to keep playing this way so you can float out some buy-low offers while you still can.

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander put up 21 points with nine rebounds on 5-of-14 shooting in a win over the Blazers on Sunday.
Gilgeous-Alexander shot 5-of-14 from the field and 9-of-12 from the stripe. SGA is just outside top-100 value on the season and is looking like a late-round scoring specialist. Dennis Schroder chipped in 21 points on 7-of-14 shooting with three triples and two assists. Schroder provides solid scoring and passing value for standard leagues, but is outside top-150 on the season.

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander woke up with a fantastic game in Friday's 139-127 win over the Wolves with a career-high 29 points (8-of-13 FGs, 12-of-12 FTs), five rebounds, one 3-pointer, two assists and one steal.
Wow. Talk about a bounce-back SGA has been floundering in the rankings lately, edged out of the top-200 last week. This strong showing may not be enough to slam his buy-low window shut just yet, but is a stern reminder of the tantalizing upside he brings to the table.

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander continued to struggle from the field in Wednesday's loss to the Pacers, finishing with 16 points on 7-of-19 shooting to go with three rebounds, three assists, a steal and a 3-pointer in 36 minutes.
The spike in volume for Gilgeous-Alexander this year has not gone well. He's shooting under 44 percent on the year and that mark is keeping him from actualizing standard-league value. Until the volume decreases or the efficiency goes up he is going to hurt your team more than help it at this point.

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander had a rough shooting night on Sunday (5-of-17 FG), but did manage to provide 17 points, nine rebounds, two 3-pointers, and one steal while going 5-of-6 from the line.
Shai Gilgeous-Alexander has been in a slump from the field of late and had only averaged 11 points in his previous three games. The minutes will still be there for Gilgeous-Alexander, but he will have to deal with other hot hands on the Thunder when he cannot take the lead. For instance, Dennis Schroder went for 17 points (6-of-12 FG, 3-of-3 FT), three rebounds, two assists, two 3-pointers, one steal and three turnovers tonight.

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander had one of his better games of the year on Friday, adding 24 points (10-for-18 shooting), seven rebounds, four assists, two threes, one steal and a block in Friday's 127-130 loss to the Lakers.
Gilgeous-Alexander looked pretty good in this one playing next to Chris Paul who had 18 points (5-for-11 shooting), seven assists, four rebounds, two triples and a steal. Fellow starter Terrance Ferguson had 11 points (4-for-7 shooting), three assists, three triples and two rebounds.

Dennis Schroder had a season-high 31 points (12-for-20 FGs, 4-for-4 FTs) to go with four boards, one dime and three triples in 30 minutes off the bench in a 107-112 loss to the Lakers.
Schroder has had some great games this season, but it just hasn't been consistent enough to make him a must-start standard league player. Perhaps a trade will settle things for him a bit more in the next few months. Schroder's backcourt mates had mixed results tonight with Chris Paul scoring just four points on 1-of-7 shooting but with five boards, 10 dimes and four steals while Shai Gilgeous-Alexander shot just 5-of-16 from the field but 4-of-4 from the line and had 16 points, five boards, four dimes, two treys, a steal and a block.

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.

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander did it all on Sunday as he went for 22 points, six rebounds, six assists, four 3-pointers, and two steals against the Bucks.
SGA packed in the boxscore over 37 minutes of action, and this is what a standard night is starting to look like for Gilgeous-Alexander nowadays. If anything, he is likely to improve if his veteran teammates got dealt down the road. Enjoy the ride this year.

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander scored 21 points on 9-of-18 shooting to go with a rebound and three assists on Thursday.
Gilgeous-Alexander is still lethal inside the paint and finishing around the rim, but tonight he couldn't nab any peripheral stats. He's going to be much better in that department in the next game and he's proven his consistency on that end already. The scoring will stick.

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander had an efficient game on Tuesday with 24 points on 9-of-14 shooting to go with three boards, two dimes, one steal, one block and three treys in 36 minutes in a 102-94 win over the Magic.
SGA is living up to the preseason hype as he finds himself in the top-45 through seven games. His starting backcourt mate, Chris Paul, had 20 points, six assists, three steals and a pair of threes in 32 minutes tonight. And their third wheel, Dennis Schroder, had an off night as he hit just two of his 11 shots, good for five points in 31 minutes.

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander wasn't shy on Saturday as he led the Thunder to a 115-104 victory over the Pelicans with 23 points on 8-of-14 shooting.
SGA pulled down eight rebounds, hit 3-of-5 shots from deep, dished four assists and blocked one shot. He's been a beast so far, showing everyone that he is worth all that pre-draft day hype. He's a unique gem of a guard who's currently averaging a block per game.

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander struggled on Wednesday shooting 3-of-13 from the field for 13 points.
SGA didn't have his shot tonight but still added eight rebounds, three assists and one steal. SGA has showed through five games that he is poised for a breakout season with averages of 21.6 points and seven rebounds to go with 1.6 threes, 0.8 steals and 1.0 blocks. He still has room to improve in steals and assists (3.2 per game so far), so owners should feel encouraged that SGA will return top-50 value and can look past his game on Wednesday.

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander continued his impressive play with 22 points on 8-of-21 shooting while chipping in nine rebounds, four assists and two 3-pointers in Monday's loss to the Rockets.
SGA continues his campaign for Most Improved Player with tonight's performance and there's nothing stopping him from putting up numbers. He has a remarkable ability to get to the rim and is an elite finisher already in his second season. If his 3-point shooting can continue at this rate, owners are in for a treat. The lack of defensive stats gets a pass because of how great he's been in the three games prior and there's a strong chance he ends the season as the Thunder's leading scorer. If you got him at his ADP this season, it's looking like you got a steal.
