Vonleh started at power forward and scored seven points (3-3 FG, 12- FT) and added four rebounds and one block in 16 minutes during Thursday's 112-103 win over the Magic.
Vonleh started alongside the newly acquired Jusuf Nurkic. Despite the start, he played pretty close to his season-average 18.1 minutes. He seems likely to continue having a similar role to the one he held before the All-Star break.
Vonleh will draw the start at power forward for Thursday's tilt against the Magic, Mike Richman of the Oregonian reports.
Coach Terry Stotts has opted to roll with Vonleh as his starting power forward next to Jusuf Nurkic now that the team has had more time to practice together after trading away their previous starting center, Mason Plumlee. Over his past 14 contests, Vonleh has averaged 4.2 points and 6.3 rebounds across 18.1 minutes per game, and will likely continue to have a similar role moving forward.
Vonleh moved to the bench during Wednesday's 111-88 loss to the Jazz, finishing with zero points, seven rebounds and one steal across 24 minutes.
Despite hitting the bench following an 11-game run as the starting power forward, Vonleh saw his most minutes since Jan. 20 while serving as the main backup to Ed Davis. Even with the added playing time, Vonleh did little to distinguish himself and doesn't carry much fantasy appeal, even in deeper leagues.
Vonleh will come off the bench for Wednesday's game against the Jazz, Jason Quick of The Oregonian reports.
Vonleh has worked with the starting lineup at power forward over the last few weeks, but really hasn't done anything spectacular. That likely prompted coach Terry Stotts to change things up, as Vonleh will be replaced in the starting lineup by Ed Davis for Wednesday's contest. It remains to be seen how long this arrangement will last, but whether Vonleh is on the bench or with the starters, he's usually off the radar in regards to fantasy leagues. He's averaging just 2.2 points and 5.6 rebounds across 15 minutes during five February games.
Vonleh provided no points (0-1 FG) and three rebounds across 16 minutes in a 112-109 win over the Grizzlies on Friday.
Vonleh has started at power forward in the Trail Blazers' last four games, and with the team reeling off wins in the most recent three contests, don't expect coach Terry Stotts to mess with that arrangement. Even so, duds like Friday aren't that uncommon for Vonleh, who will be a low-usage player whenever he shares the floor with Damian Lillard and C.J. McCollum. Moreover, Vonleh is still ceding the bulk of the minutes at power forward to former starter Al-Farouq Aminu, so the appointment to the top unit doesn't do much to move the needle for Vonleh from a fantasy perspective.
