Player Outlook

Steven Adams enters the first year of his four-year, $100 million contract extension as one of the league's up-and-coming centers. The contract and high praise seem to be warranted from a basketball perspective, but not as much from a Fantasy perspective. Still only 24 years old, Adams compiled career-best averages of 11.3 points, 7.7 rebounds, 1.1 assists and 1.1 steals last season. That made him valuable across just about every format, but 28 other players outrebounded Adams on a per-game basis while 34 other players blocked more shots per game -- Adams averaged exactly one block per game last season. Granted, he'll have a chance to surpass those career-best averages yet again this coming season, but the ceiling is low considering that Russell Westbrook and Paul George will seemingly dominate every Thunder possession.

Player News
  • Adams (calf) has been cleared to play Friday against the Spurs, Brett Dawson of The Oklahoman reports. Adams missed the previous three games with a bruised right calf, but after going through parts of Thursday's practice, he's been cleared to return to his regular role. Expect Adams to re-enter the starting lineup, sending Dakari Johnson back to the bench.

  • Adams (calf) participated in non-contact portions of Thursday's practice, but remains questionable for Friday's game against the Spurs, Erik Horne of The Oklahoman reports. Adams has missed the last three games while nursing a right calf bruise, but the fact that he was still limited to non-contact portions of Thursday's practice is concerning for his availability against the Spurs. That said, Adams is expected to be reevaluated early on Friday, which should then give us a better indication on whether or not he'll play. For now, consider him questionable, though if he's out again, Dakari Johnson would be in line for a fourth straight start.

  • Adams (calf) will be sidelined for Wednesday's game against the Bulls, Chuck Swirsky of the Bulls Radio Network reports. Adams was seen going through 1-on-1 drills during Wednesday's morning shootaround, though was never considered more than doubtful. With him out for a third straight game, it seems likely Dakari Johnson will draw another start, with Patrick Patterson and Jerami Grant also benefiting.

  • Adams (calf) went through 1-on-1 drills during morning shootaround, though should still be considered doubtful for Wednesday's game against the Bulls until further notice, Royce Young of reports. Adams has missed the team's past two games while dealing with a right calf bruise. Young reports that Adams seems close to returning, though there's been no word implying his status for Wednesday's game is improved. Assuming he misses the game, Patrick Patterson, Jerami Grant and Dakari Johnson will seemingly be the main beneficiaries.

  • Thunder's Steven Adams: Doubtful for Wednesday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Adams did not practice Tuesday and should be considered doubtful for Wednesday's game against the Bulls, Brett Dawson of The Oklahoman reports. While Adams' calf bruise shouldn't keep him sidelined too long, he'll most likely miss Wednesday's contest. It seems probable Dakari Johnson, Patrick Patterson and Jerami Grant will continue being beneficiaries of the big man's absence.
