    Trail Blazers' Meyers Leonard: Listed as starter Thursday

    Leonard is listed as a starter for the Blazers on Thursday against Toronto with Noah Vonleh injured, Erik Gundersen of The Columbian reports. X-rays on Vonleh's injured ankle showed no breaks, and the Blazers are just playing it safe and waiting for the swelling to go down. It's unclear if Vonleh will be ready to return by Saturday's game against Houston, and Leonard appears to be the major beneficiary should Vonleh be unable to go this weekend.

    Trail Blazers' Meyers Leonard: Drills three treys Sunday

    Leonard notched 13 points (5-11 FG, 3-7 3Pt), six rebounds, one assist, and one block in 32 minutes during Sunday's victory against the Timberwolves. Before Leonard knocked down a three-pointer with 3:50 remaining in the first half, the Trail Blazers combined to miss their first nine shots from beyond the arc. Thereafter, he was the sole Blazer honed in from deep, scattering two more makes among four attempts, while the rest of the team was 4-for-14. Leonard has now knocked down multiple treys in 14 of the past 21 games, a stretch in which he's posted 10.0 points (on 49/46/67 shooting splits), 5.5 rebounds, 2.0 three-pointers, and 1.5 assists in 23 minutes per contest. Although the workload isn't desirable for fantasy purposes, an injury to the frontcourt could open up enough minutes for near-universal relevance.

    Trail Blazers' Meyers Leonard: Effective off the bench versus Wizards

    Leonard scored 18 points (7-10 FG, 4-7 3Pt) to go with four rebounds and two assists in 24 minutes during Monday's win over the Wizards. The four-year pro has hovered right around his season average of 23 minutes per game over the last four, but he has enjoyed a noticeable uptick in production, averaging 13 points, 5.5 rebounds and 2.5 threes per game. However, Leonard continues to split the frontcourt minutes with Mason Plumlee, Noah Vonleh and Ed Davis in a rotation that limits each player's upside.

    Trail Blazers' Meyers Leonard: Scores 14 in Saturday's loss

    Leonard scored 14 points (6-11 FG, 2-6 3Pt) while adding seven rebounds in 27 minutes off the bench during Saturday's loss to the 76ers. He was just about the only Trail Blazer who didn't look out of sorts Saturday, as Leonard tied Damian Lillard for the team scoring lead on the night and led the team in rebounding. He continues to get more minutes and modestly out-produce starting power forward Noah Vonleh, but Portland doesn't seem inclined to move Leonard back into the starting five.

    Trail Blazers' Meyers Leonard: Scores 10 points Wednesday

    Leonard posted 10 points (4-6 FG, 2-3 3Pt) and five rebounds over 22 minutes in Wednesday's 109-98 loss to the Clippers. Leonard had pieced together a stretch of five straight double-digit scoring games to close out December, but struggled in his first two games of January before getting back over the hump. After averaging 25.7 minutes of action during a nine-game stretch from Dec. 16 to Dec. 31, Leonard has been at 22 minutes or fewer in each of the last three games, which has sent his fantasy value on the decline again.

    Trail Blazers' Meyers Leonard: Tallies 17 points off bench Thursday

    Leonard tallied 17 points (6-8 FG, 5-6 3Pt), three rebounds and two assists over 33 minutes in Thursday's 109-96 loss to the Jazz. The four-year pro demonstrated some of the qualities that make him one of the more unique big men in the league, one who boasts a soft shooting touch despite his 7'1 height. Leonard drained five of six three-point tries, his fifth straight contest with multiple treys. It was also his fifth straight double-digit scoring game, and Leonard equaled his best field-goal percentage of the season. With a continued stretch of play like the one he's currently put together, Leonard's playing time figures to remain in the 25-30 minute range he's received over the last 10 contests.

    Trail Blazers' Meyers Leonard: Double-double off the bench Sunday

    Leonard scored 16 points (5-11 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT) while adding 11 rebounds and two assists in 30 minutes off the bench during Sunday's win over the Kings. He also held his own on defense against DeMarcus Cousins down the stretch after Mason Plumlee ran into foul trouble. Leonard's court time has been trending up recently, as he's played 25 or more minutes in four of the last seven games, and he's responded with his first double-double of the season and three straight games with double-digit points. If he continues to have a bigger role in Portland's frontcourt rotation, he could become useful in deeper fantasy formats.

    Trail Blazers' Meyers Leonard: Manages 13 points in blowout victory

    Leonard managed 13 points (5-9 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 1-2 FT), five rebounds and four assists over 23 minutes in Saturday's 105-76 victory over the Cavaliers. The 23-year-old posted his second consecutive double-digit scoring performance, and has drained half of his 10 three-point attempts over that pair of contests. The big man has always boasted a deft shooting touch from long range, but has been sporadic offensively so far in the 2015-16 campaign. If he can begin to string together some consistent performances, it would appear likely that Leonard could reclaim the starting power forward role from the offensively challenged Noah Vonleh, especially on a Blazers squad in need of scoring help.

    Trail Blazers' Meyers Leonard: Scores 15 off bench in loss

    Leonard scored 15 points (5-9 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 2-5 FT) with five rebounds and a block through 27 minutes in a 115-89 loss to the Pelicans on Wednesday. Leonard's performance Wednesday represented his second-highest scoring total of the season. Averaging 24.6 minutes over his last five games, Leonard appears to be splitting time fairly evenly with starting center Mason Plumlee. If given significant minutes over fellow reserve Ed Davis, Leonard's three-point shooting makes him an interesting option in deep leagues.

    Trail Blazers' Meyers Leonard: Scores eight points, adds nine rebounds

    Leonard scored eight points (3-5 FG, 2-3 3Pt) to go along with nine rebounds and one assist over 25 minutes in Sunday's loss to the Heat. While Leonard came close to his first double-double of the campaign, he still finished with fewer than 10 points for the eighth straight contest. Until he shows more consistency as a scorer along with the ability to remain a threat from three-point range, Leonard isn't worth considering outside of deeper formats.
