Not buying into Steven Adams' Fantasy value
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

The Thunder will turn to Steven Adams to start at center to open the season Wednesday, finally ending Kendrick Perkins' hold on the role. Should Fantasy owners be jumping at the chance to add the second-year big man, given his role?

I'm not convinced. Yes, Adams has talent and could be a solid option down the road, but I'm not sure he is ready to impact the box score in a big way. His merits for the Thunder are clear: s he brings more mobility and athleticism to the table than the plodding Perkins. However, those talents may not make much of a difference for Fantasy, where all that matters is how many times you can make your name show up in the box score.

Adams started 20 games last season while Perkins dealt with injuries, but was basically a non-factor. He averaged 3.3 points, 4.2 rebounds and just 0.5 blocks per game, while racking up 2.4 personal fouls in 17.1 minutes per game. Although he should see a bigger role this time around as a starter, fouls are probably going to put a ceiling on how much he is able to play.

Adams played 25-plus minutes six times as a rookie, and averaged just 6.7 points, 6.3 rebounds and 1.8 blocks in those games. He should top those numbers but probably doesn't have much of a chance to be a consistent starting Fantasy option at this point in his career.

Steven Adams back to bench for good
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Though he started 18 of 19 games with Kendrick Perkins out, Thunder center Steven Adams has been back on the bench over the last two games.

Adams played 19 minutes in the team's 107-101 win over the Clippers Wednesday, one night after logging 27 minutes, while coming off the bench in both games. Adams averaged just 3.2 points and 4.4 rebounds per game during his stretch as a starter.

The Oklahoman reports Thursday Adams is likely to see just sporadic playing time in the postseason, which is in line with his season role. He has played fewer than 20 minutes in 47 of 77 games so far this season, averaging 3.3 points and 4.3 rebounds per game as a rookie.

Steven Adams does little in starting lineup
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Thunder center Steven Adams got the start Sunday afternoon in place of Kendrick Perkins (groin), but failed to make much of an impact against the Clippers.

Adams missed his only shot attempt and was limited to just one point, converting 1 of 2 free throws in a 125-117 defeat. He grabbed six boards and blocked one shot while logging 16 minutes as a starter. He is averaging just 9.0 minutes and 2.0 rebounds over his last five games played.
