Dort tallied 30 points (10-21 FG, 6-12 3Pt, 4-6 FT), four rebounds, one assist and one block in 35 minutes during Wednesday's 104-102 loss to the Rockets. Dort exploded for a career-high scoring total, shocking the world with his offensive exploits. Prior to Wednesday's performance, Dort had scored in double digits only seven times this season. Not only was Dort dominant on the offensive end, but he also limited James Harden to just 18 points on 4-of-15 shooting. While this is a clear outlier for Dort, it does demonstrate his ability to get hot at times. His defensive prowess is likely to keep him on the floor next season, and fantasy managers will want to remember this high-octane offensive performance come draft time.
Dort (knee) put up eight points (3-10 FG, 2-8 3Pt), two rebounds and a block in 25 minutes during Thursday's 111-98 Game 2 loss to the Rockets. Dort (knee) missed his first several shot attempts before eventually making a few in the second half. He had been ruled out earlier in the day prior to being upgraded to questionable, then was ultimately cleared to play. Dort's defense was stellar, as he contained Houston's James Harden and kept him from single-handedly taking over. Nevertheless, Dort's defensive ability doesn't often translate into copious counting stats, so those in daily fantasy leagues should view him as a dart throw at best.
Dort (knee) is in the starting lineup for Thursday's Game 2 against the Rockets, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports. Surprisingly cleared to play, Dort will presumably be asked to guard James Harden. Thursday will mark Dort's 29th straight start; across that stretch, he's averaged 7.6 points, 2.5 rebounds and 1.0 steals in 24.5 minutes.
Dort (knee) will play in Thursday's Game 2 against the Rockets, Michael C. Wright of ESPN.com reports. After originally being ruled out and then upgraded to questionable, Dort has been cleared to play. He may be asked to be the primary defender on James Harden, as Dort is one of the strongest wing players OKC has available.
Dort (knee) has been upgraded to questionable ahead of Thursday's game against the Rockets. Dort was previously listed as out, so his upgraded status comes as a surprise. His presence would be welcomed by the Thunder, who struggled to contain James Harden during Game 1; Dort is a rare player with the physical tools to bother the former MVP.
