Schroder had 15 points (6-15 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), seven assists, five rebounds, and four steals in 35 minutes during Saturday's 110-100 victory over the Suns. Schroder was impressive yet again Saturday, filling in for the injured Russell Westbrook (ankle). Schroder has been a revelation for the Thunder, admirably taking the reigns for the team in Westbrook's absence. Perhaps the most surprising aspect to Schroeder's play has been his increased activity on the defensive end. Thus far he is averaging 1.5 steals per game, with that number jumping to 3.0 over the past week. That is well up from his past few seasons and has certainly added to his overall fantasy value. Even upon Westbrook's return, Schroder has done more than enough to remain an important part of the rotation and should easily put up standard league value moving forward.
Schroder scored 15 points (5-10 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT), collected four rebounds, handed out 12 assists, snatched two steals, and recorded one block in 30 minutes Wednesday as the Thunder topped the Knicks. Schroder's role altered significantly when Russell Westbrook (ankle) went down, and he has filled those shoes admirably. It's not expected that Westbrook will be out for much longer, but the past five games have made it clear that Schroder will be a valuable fantasy asset for the duration of the 2018-19 season, even in the role of sixth-man.
Schroder had 20 points (6-19 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 6-6 FT), nine assists, five rebounds, and four steals in 35 minutes during Monday's 118-101 victory over Phoenix. Schroder continues to start for the injured Russell Westbrook (ankle), having another strong outing Monday. The nine assists were a season-high, as were the four steals. His value is likely not going to get any higher than this and an opportunity to sell high exists in many cases. That being said, even upon Westbrook's return, Schroder has likely played himself into a sizeable role and should still be rostered in standard leagues moving forward.
Schroder tallied 28 points (11-19 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 6-8 FT), seven rebounds, one steal and one block across 34 minutes in Wednesday's 95-86 win over the Cavaliers. Schroder entered the starting lineup with Russell Westbrook (ankle) sidelined, and did not disappoint, putting up a season-high in points Wednesday night. His minutes won't improve drastically with Westbrook out, rather he should have more opportunities to put up statistics with those minutes, given the need for a new focal point of the offense.
Schroder will get the start Wednesday against the Cavaliers, Maddie Lee of The Oklahoman reports. As anticipated, Schroder will move into the spot vacated by Russell Westbrook (ankle), who will miss at least one game after rolling his ankle during Monday's win over New Orleans. Schroder should be set for an increase in minutes in the short term, but he's already averaging 28.1 minutes per game for the season. In the two games Westbrook missed to begin the year, Schroder played 34 and 30 minutes, respectively.
