Vonleh totaled 12.0 points, 8.8 rebounds and 1.2 assists per game in four Las Vegas Summer League contests.
Vonleh opted to jump ship to the NBA after one season at Indiana which, in retrospect, may not have been the best decision for his growth as a player. In two professional seasons, Vonleh has posted 3.6 points and 3.8 boards per game. However, it seems as though the former lottery pick may finally be projecting into the player scouts once thought he would become. Vonleh led Portland in the rebounding column and proved to be one of the team's most reliable offensive options this summer. Despite the emergence of Mason Plumlee, the Trail Blazers still haven't completely filled the void left from LaMarcus Aldridge's departure last season. In a perfect world, Vonleh would step up and surface as a solid contributor. However, whether or not the 20-year-old has the ability to cement his presence in the rotation remains to be seen.
After serving in a starting role for much of the season, Vonleh was displaced by Maurice Harkless at power forward in late March and has since seen his role in the Blazers' rotation evaporate almost entirely. Vonleh has appeared in five of the Blazers' seven games so far this postseason, logging no more than seven minutes on any occasion.
Noah Vonleh secured six points (2-8 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five rebounds, three blocks, one steal, and one assist in 25 minutes during Wednesday's win against the Nuggets.
Since he was replaced in the starting five by Maurice Harkless on March 23, Vonleh has earned double-digit minutes just four times in 11 games. With the Blazers' playoff fate determined before Wednesday's opening tip, coach Terry Stotts was less stringent than normal with the bench mob, allowing Vonleh to pick up his most run since Jan. 23. Portland opens the postseason Sunday against the Clippers in Los Angeles, at which point Stotts can be expected to tighten the rotation again and likely keep Vonleh contained to garbage time.
Noah Vonleh amassed five points (2-4 FG, 1-2 FT), six rebounds, two blocks, and one assist in 24 minutes during Monday's victory versus the Kings.
Last Wednesday, Vonleh was displaced in the starting lineup by Maurice Harkless, limiting him to 23 combined minutes over the subsequent three contests. However, the Blazers steamrolled a shorthanded Kings squad Monday, which afforded Vonleh his most run since Jan. 23. Clearly, diminishing minutes doesn't help his fantasy stock, and the current state of the frontcourt rotation will likely sustain such value, barring an injury to one of his teammates.
Noah Vonleh logged just three minutes off the bench during Wednesday's win against the Mavericks, going scoreless with one rebound.
Prior to Wednesday, Vonleh had been a regular presence in the starting five in every game since Nov. 18, but for a four-game absence to tend to an ankle injury before the break. With Maurice Harkless taking his place, Vonleh earned a season-low in minutes, though coach Terry Stotts was noncommittal afterward whether Harkless will remain a starter long-term. If Vonleh returns to a starting role Thursday against the Clippers in Los Angeles, expect him to pick up his typical 16 minutes per tilt.
