At the time the NBA suspended play, Adams had scored fewer than 10 points in four of his last five games. Adams has had an up-and-down season, overall, and that continued after the All-Star break. In his first four post-break games, Adams averaged 17.8 points, 11.8 rebounds, 2.0 steals and 1.3 blocks, but his production dipped in his final five game before the shutdown. In that sample, Adams posted just 7.6 points, 8.2 rebounds, 1.4 steals and 0.8 blocks in 25.2 minutes.
Adams supplied eight points (4-5 FG), seven rebounds, three assists and a steal in just 17 minutes during Oklahoma City's 133-86 loss to the Bucks. Despite the efficiency, Adams saw little usage while playing far less than his 27 minutes averaged per game this season. He was too slow to stick with Giannis Antetokounmpo (13-20 FG) and is a potential scapegoat of the Thunder allowing Milwaukee to hit a season-high 21 threes. After the back-to-back, Adams will now be off until Tuesday.
Adams notched 21 points (8-12 FG, 5-6 FT), 14 rebounds and a steal in 27 minutes during Sunday's 131-103 win over the Spurs. This marks his fourth straight double-double. While he's long been a nightly threat for double-digit points and boards, the big man has been outdoing himself of late. Adams has averaged 15.3 points with 13.0 rebounds, 2.5 steals and 1.5 blocks during that four-game stretch.
Adams accumulated 11 points (5-10 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 0-1 FT), 11 rebounds, three blocks, two assists and one steal in 28 minutes during Thursday's 123-118 win over the Pelicans. One game after going for a double-double with four steals, two assists and a block (not to mention making both of his free-throw attempts), Adams double-doubled once more, adding in three blocks and even a three off of a half-court buzzer-beater. The 26-year old's fantasy value has steadily declined over the last couple of seasons. One upside, however, is that Adams' 2.6 assists per game are a career-high, which is interesting considering that the Thunder play some guard-heavy lineups. However, his points per game are as low as they've been in three years, and he hasn't shown the ability to take the next step. At this point, Adams is what he is, but he remains relevant in standard leagues as a player who will provide strong rebounds and field-goal percentage, plus decent blocks.
Adams contributed 10 points (4-9 FG, 2-2 FT), 10 rebounds, four steals, two assists and one block in 32 minutes during Tuesday's 114-106 loss against the Spurs. Adams has scored in double digits just twice in his last 11 games, although both outputs have come in his last three outings. He has grabbed double-digit boards in back-to-back games as well, so he is showing signs of turning things around, but the veteran big man hasn't had a good start to 2020. He is only averaging 9.0 points and 9.3 rebounds in 30.3 minutes per game in four February contests.
