    Thunder's Steven Adams: Plays 35 minutes in return to lineup

    Adams (elbow) had nine points (4-10 FG, 1-2 FT), eight rebounds, three assists, and three steals in 35 minutes during the Thunder's 128-122 victory versus the Knicks on Tuesday. Adams missed the last two games with an elbow strain, but he was extremely solid on a night when backup Enes Kanter went 0-for-6 from the field for two points and seven rebounds in 18 minutes. Adams has played 30 or more minutes eight times through 45 appearances this season, and three of those occurrences have been in January. Adams has seen a slight increase in time this month, but his value is mostly restricted to deeper category leagues due to ho-hum counting stats.

    Thunder's Steven Adams: Playing Tuesday

    Adams (elbow) will play Tuesday versus the Knicks in New York, Anthony Slater of The Oklahoman reports. Making his return from a two-game absence due to a strained right elbow, Adams can be expected to enter the starting lineup, as he has in all 44 appearances this season. However, he could fall short of his typical 24 minutes per contest.

    Thunder's Steven Adams: Game-time decision Tuesday

    Adams (elbow) is being considered a game-time decision for Tuesday's tilt with the Knicks, Anthony Slater of The Oklahoman reports. Although Adams was previously expected to be sidelined until at least Friday's game against the Rockets due to a right elbow strain, the center was in attendance for Tuesday's morning shootaround, and there seems to be growing optimism he might be able to play. Adams was wearing a brace to help stabilize his right elbow at shootaround, but his shot looked fluid during the session, according to Slater. If Adams continues to feel comfortable following pregame warmups, he'd likely take back his usual starting post, resulting in reductions in playing time for Enes Kanter and Nick Collison.

    Thunder's Steven Adams: Limited in practice

    Adams (elbow) did some limited work at practice Monday and remains questionable to play Tuesday against the Knicks, Anthony Slater of The Oklahoman reports. Adams missed a second straight game Sunday against the Nets as he continues to work back from a strained right elbow. The big man sported a brace on the elbow Monday, and he'll be re-evaluated by the team's medical staff prior to Tuesday's matchup, at which point an update will be issued. Even if Adams is given the green light to play, he'll likely be limited, meaning Enes Kanter could be an appealing daily option Tuesday night, as well as Wednesday against the Timberwolves.

    Thunder's Steven Adams: Likely out remainder of Thunder's road trip

    Adams (elbow) will not play Sunday against the Nets, and will likely miss the remainder of the Thunder's road trip, Anthony Slater of The Oklahoman reports. The Thunder are going to give their big man's elbow time to heal, which should allow him to avoid a nagging injury. If he indeed does miss the remainder of the road trip, that will result in two more games missed following Sunday's matchup in Brooklyn. Nick Collison will likely see an increased role and stick around in the starting lineup during Adams' absence.

    Thunder's Steven Adams: Late scratch Friday

    Adams will not play Friday due to a right elbow strain, Erik Horne of The Oklahoman reports. This last minute scratch comes as a surprise considering Adams was not questionable heading into the matchup. Nick Collison will replace Adams in the starting lineup. The severity of the elbow injury is unknown, but his next opportunity to play will be Sunday versus the Nets.

    Thunder's Steven Adams: Collects double-double versus Hornets

    Adams collected 10 points (3-5 FG, 4-6 FT), 10 rebounds, and one block across 28 minutes in Wednesday's 109-95 win over the Hornets. Adams' 60 percent shooting mark from the field this season ranks right among the league leaders, but because he's only averaging 4.7 field-goal attempts, the impact of his efficiency is hardly felt by his fantasy owners. On a more fortunate note, Adams does at least appear to be looking for his own offense more regularly, as he's put up at least five shots in five consecutive games, which has aided him in reaching double digits in the scoring column in three of those contests.

    Thunder's Steven Adams: Posts 17 points, 10 boards Sunday

    Adams recorded 17 points (6-6 FG, 5-9 FT), 10 rebounds, and one block in 35 minutes during the Thunder's 115-110 loss to the Trail Blazers on Sunday. Adams typically splits time with teammate Enes Kanter, but Kanter saw only 13 minutes of action on Sunday. Over the last five match-ups, Adams is averaging 11.2 points (80.8 FG, 66.7 FT), eight rebounds, 1.4 blocks, 1.2 assists, and 0.2 blocks in 25 minutes per night. However, the unpredictability in Thunder coach Billy Donovan's rotations makes it tough to trust Adams outside of deeper category leagues.

    Thunder's Steven Adams: Double-doubles Monday

    Adams scored 15 points (5-6 FG, 5-6 FT) while adding 10 rebounds and two assists in 27 minutes during the Thunder's 116-104 loss against the Kings on Monday. Adams wasn't able to slow down DeMarcus Cousins and the Kings' offense enough to earn the win, but Adams did manage to deliver his second double-double of the season. Sharing time at center with Enes Kanter hurts Adams' fantasy stock, but both Thunder bigs possess value in deeper leagues.

    Thunder's Steven Adams: Manages six points, eight rebounds in Thursday victor

    Adams managed six points (2-4 FG, 2-2 FT), eight rebounds, an assist and a steal over 25 minutes in Thursday's 110-106 victory over the Suns. The third-year pro provided solid production over his time on the court, and was typically formidable on the glass. While he rarely even breaks double digits in scoring, Adams can offer solid fantasy value in rebounds, as well as through occasional blocks and steals. His minutes are also largely consistent, as coach Billy Donovan appears intent on bringing the more offensively proficient but defensively inferior Enes Kanter off the bench.
