Adams had 24 points (9-13 FG, 6-11 FT), 12 rebounds, one assist and one steal in 31 minutes during Friday's 105-99 victory over the Heat. Adams dominated inside once again, taking advantage of the Whiteside-less Heat. He continues to be one of the most underrated big men in both fantasy and reality. He is a major reason the Thunder have been able to turn their season around and barring any injuries, should be set for a strong finish to the regular season.
Adams registered 25 points (10-13 FG, 5-9 FT), eight rebounds, four assists and one steal across 33 minutes Sunday in Oklahoma City's win over Toronto. Adams was a monster Sunday, matching a career-high with four assists and working alongside Russell Westbrook in the pick-and-roll to put up one of his best overall performances of the 2017-18 season. The 24-year-old Kiwi is shooting a strong 63.5-percent from the field, supplemented by his league-leading offensive rebounding percentage of 16.9. Adams' presence in the paint and his rapport with Westbrook make him a unique fantasy asset. He does the dirty work and those who hold Adams stock should be pleased with the return so far.
Adams scored 18 points (8-15 FG, 2-4 FT) while adding 14 rebounds, five blocks, three steals and an assist in 38 minutes during Friday's 121-113 win over the Clippers. While his defensive numbers stand out, Adams was just as impressive at the other end of the court while contending with DeAndre Jordan, as 10 of his boards came on the offensive glass. Adams now has 24 double-doubles on the season, and unless the hip bruise he's playing through gets aggravated, he should continue to post strong numbers down the stretch.
Adams (hip) will play during Friday's game against the Clippers, Brett Dawson of The Oklahoman reports. Adams was a limited participant in Thursday's practice, but is apparently feeling improved after going through some activities ahead of Friday's game. There's no indication he'll be under any sort of minutes restriction.
Adams (hip) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice and can be considered questionable for Friday's game against the Clippers, Erik Horne of The Oklahoman reports. After trying to play through a hip injury earlier in the week, Adams was forced to sit out Tuesday's game against the Hawks. It appears he's still dealing with some discomfort a few days later, as he was unable to go through a full practice Thursday. That brings his status into question for Friday, though look for another update to be provided following the team's morning shootaround. Dakari Johnson started in his place Tuesday, but logged just seven minutes. Instead, it was Jerami Grant (33 minutes) and Patrick Patterson (19 minutes) that saw more time in the frontcourt and they would likely be the main beneficiaries again Friday if Adams can't give it a go.
