Trail Blazers' Meyers Leonard: Quiet in return to the bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leonard came off the bench and scored four points (1-2 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT) while grabbing four rebounds in 11 minutes during Thursday's 112-103 win over the Magic.

Jusuf Nurkic moved into the starting lineup in just his second game as a member of the Trail Blazers, returning Leonard to his bench role. Leonard played fewer than his season average of 16.3 minutes, though his workloads have been highly irregular all season. Leonard is a risky play on any night, and he has little value outside of very deep leagues.

Trail Blazers' Meyers Leonard: Will come off the bench Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leonard will return to the bench for Thursday's matchup with the Magic, Casey Holdahl of TrailBlazers.com reports.

Leonard drew two consecutive starts prior to the All-Star break, but now that Jusuf Nurkic has had the chance to get acclimated to his new team, the Blazers are electing to start him at center. That pushes Leonard to the bench and likely means a decreased role moving forward. Leonard's role has been highly volatile throughout the season, which makes him at best a risky add in the majority of fantasy formats.

Trail Blazers' Meyers Leonard: Records more fouls than points Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leonard submitted two points (1-7 FG, 0-6 3Pt, 0-2 FT), six rebounds and three assists across 24 minutes in a 109-104 overtime loss to the Hawks on Monday.

With the newly-acquired Jusuf Nurkic unavailable for Monday's game, coach Terry Stotts turned to Leonard to pick up the start at center in place of the since-traded Mason Plumlee, but the former first-round pick was abysmal, missing all six of his attempts from beyond the arc and accruing more fouls (five) than points (two). Meanwhile, backup Ed Davis recorded a double-double in 27 minutes, and his steady track record of production on the boards probably makes him a more useful option in deeper leagues than Leonard now that Plumlee is out of the picture. However, once Nurkic has a chance to get acclimated to his new surroundings, it's expected that he'll receive a look as the club's primary center, so he's probably worthy of top waiver-wire priority among the Blazers' options at the position.

Trail Blazers' Meyers Leonard: Will start at center Monday vs. Hawks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leonard will draw the start at center for Monday's tilt against the Hawks, Mike Richman of The Oregonian reports.

With Mason Plumlee being dealt to the Nuggets and Jusuf Nurkic unable to play due to trade rules, coach Terry Stotts has opted to start Leonard at the center slot. Leonard only sees 16.0 minutes per game for the Trail Blazers, but should be in line for a larger workload Monday. He averages 5.5 points on 35.0 percent shooting from beyond the arc to go along with 3.2 rebounds per contest.

Trail Blazers' Meyers Leonard: Grabs seven rebounds in Sunday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leonard submitted three points (1-1 FG, 1-1 3Pt), seven rebounds and two assists across 19 minutes in a 105-99 loss to the Thunder on Sunday.

Leonard was squeezed out of the rotation in the Trail Blazers' previous game Friday against the Mavericks, but he reentered the mix Sunday, with Ed Davis getting held out in a coach's decision as a result. Even though Leonard provided quality production on the boards, it's often difficult to predict how coach Terry Stotts will deploy his big men from game to game, making the 24-year-old a largely unappealing fantasy option in most formats.
