Adams posted 10 points (5-6 FG, 0-1 3Pt), seven rebounds, two assists and one block across 35 minutes during the Thunder's 120-108 win over the Trail Blazers in Game 3 of their Western Conference first-round playoff series Friday. Adams had averaged 16.5 points over the first two games of the series, so Friday's tally represented a notable downturn. The big man remained as efficient as he'd been in Game 2, but he took two fewer shot attempts and also failed to visit the free-throw line for the first time in the series. He'll look to boost his production back up in Sunday's Game 4.
Adams managed 16 points (7-8 FG, 2-5 FT), nine rebounds, one assist, and one steal in 30 minutes during Tuesday's 114-94 loss to Portland. Adams continues to have himself a strong series, finishing with 16 points and nine rebounds while limiting Enes Kanter to just 6-and-5. Outside of Adams, Paul George, and Russell Westbrook, the Thunder have struggled to get any contributions and will need any additional support they can get if they hope to extend the series beyond four games.
Adams delivered 17 points (8-14 FG, 1-2 FT), nine rebounds, three steals, and one assist in 36 minutes during Sunday's 104-99 Game 1 loss to the Trail Blazers. Adams provided a strong stat line despite being outplayed by former teammate Enes Kanter. Adams will enter Tuesday's Game 2 hoping to do a better job of slowing Kanter down and keeping him off the glass while trying to help his team even the series.
Adams (shoulder) has returned to Wednesday's game against the Bucks, Brett Dawson of The Athletic reports. Adams is back after suffering a shoulder injury during the first half Wednesday. While there's little doubt that Adams will play in the Thunder's upcoming playoff series, his health status should be monitored heading into the weekend.
Adams provided eight points (3-11 FG, 2-4 FT), 13 boards and one assist in 37 minutes Tuesday in the Thunder's 112-111 win over the Rockets. The poor free-throw shooting isn't uncommon for Adams, but the lack of efficiency from the field is a tougher pill for fantasy managers to swallow after the big man converted at a 67.6 percent clip over the prior six contests. He'll get a quick opportunity to bounce back Wednesday in the Thunder's regular-season finale in Milwaukee. Adams nor any of Oklahoma City's other starters are expected to see restricted minutes if the contest remains reasonably competitive, as playoff seeding is still at stake for the Thunder.
