Steven Adams saw just 24 minutes of action on Friday, but it was enough time for him to record a 12-point (5-of-8 shooting), 11 rebound double-double that was complemented by one assist and two blocks.
Adams has been hovering just inside the top-90 over the past two weeks. He's been flirting with a double-double thanks his averages of 12.0 points, 9.0 rebounds and 1.3 steals per game during that span.

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.

Steven Adams dropped 15 points on 7-of-9 shooting while grabbing seven boards with an assist on Thursday.
Adams was his usual self in this one, not the monster shot blocker we've seen over the past few weeks. It's still too hard to see whether or not his defensive spree was a fluke or a trend, but so far he's been providing more value than expected.

Steven Adams put up 21 points with 14 boards on 8-of-12 shooting in a 131-103 win over the Spurs on Sunday.
Adams played 27 minutes and added one steal to the stat sheet. Adams could be turning the corner and looks like a potential top-50 option for the remainder of the season.

Steven Adams had a great game on Friday, with 19 points (7-for-14 shooting), 17 rebounds, four steals, two blocks and two assists across 32 minutes.
Adams turned in some of his trademark rebounding in this one, while chipping in some defensive stats as well. Adams is starting to heat up a bit but doesn't have the highest ceiling and will typically hurt you in free throws as well, though he went 5-for-6 tonight.

Steven Adams double-doubled with 11 points and 11 boards to go with two assists, a steal, a block and a 3-pointer in Thursday's win over the Pelicans.
Adams threw a heave from beyond halfcourt before halftime and drained it as his first career 3-pointer. He played as well as you could have asked against Zion Williamson in the paint, but don't expect another triple for at least a few months at a minimum.

Steven Adams had a modest double-double Tuesday, as he scored 10 points, grabbed 10 rebounds and nabbed four steals in a loss to the Spurs.
Adams logged 32 minutes which was his fifth most this season. He was 4-of-9 from the floor Tuesday and went an abysmal 2-of-10 on Sunday against the Celtics. These percentages are not ideal with the kinds of shots Adams takes. Fantasy owners can hope he's just having a rough couple of games shooting the ball.

Steven Adams finished with four points, 11 rebounds, a block and a 2-for-10 shooting line on Sunday.
Adams has been a letdown this season with the Thunder transitioning to a true guard-dominant team, as they have three PGs that do the heavy lifting. His steals have been halved and his scoring is down by three points per game from last year, sticking Steve-O with top-115 value on the year. Expect better from the .600 shooter in the next game, at least.

Steven Adams had an efficient 16 points (7-for-10 shooting), eight rebounds, three assists and a block in Friday's win over the Pistons.
Adams also hit both of his free throw attempts in a welcome surprise. It hasn't been a great year for Adams, but this was a nice night and it will be interesting to see if he can build off of it.

Steven Adams scored nine points on 4-of-5 shooting to go with five rebounds and four dimes on Monday.
Adams returned from his ankle injury last game, but it looks like it's still bothering him. He's moving a bit slower out there and only logged 24 minutes tonight in what was a relatively close game most of the way. Nerlens Noel (19 minutes, nine points, eight rebounds, one assist and one block) didn't do too much either tonight.

Steven Adams (left ankle sprain) returned on Saturday and failed to score in 23 minutes but added one rebound and four blocks.
It was a rough night for Adams and the blocks were his only positive contribution. The Thunder will need to lean on Adams more in the short term with Nerlens Noel (facial fracture) sidelined. Adams is just outside the top-100 in 9-cat per game value on the season and should safely stay in that range ROS.

Steven Adams (left ankle sprain) is available to play during Saturday's game versus the Timberwolves.
Adams missed last night's game versus the Hawks, but with Nerlens Noel ruled out the Thunder are going to need his size versus the Timberwolves. Mike Muscala will be needed to back up Adams tonight, but he should be in line for extended run with Danilo Gallinari sitting as well.

Steven Adams (left ankle sprain) is questionable to face the Wolves on Saturday.
Adams sprained his ankle two minutes into Monday's game and has missed the subsequent two games. Noel has been filling in nicely but underwent surgery to repair a fractured cheek so if Adams remains out, the Thunder may need to give Mike Muscala and Darius Bazley all of the frontcourt minutes with Danilo Gallinari also ruled out.

Dealing with a left ankle sprain, Steven Adams will not take part in the Thunder-Hawks matchup on Friday.
While Adams is out Nerlens Noel will be in for an excellent opportunity to produce. Don't be afraid to have him in your DFS lineups. Adams should be ready to return in the near future, and had been playing well before the ankle sprain, but whether it's because of the competition or the injuries he has been unable to reach mid-round value this season.

Steven Adams (left ankle sprain) is listed as questionable vs. the Hawks on Friday.
Adams is one of the toughest cookies in the league, so expect the Kiwi to head back to the court ASAP. Until then, enjoy the Nerlens Noel ride.
