Brown posted six points (3-5 FG) and six rebounds in 19 minutes during Saturday's 117-93 loss to the Thunder. The 21-year-old's 19 minutes are the lowest he's played since March 11. Brown was outplayed by backup center Tony Bradley Saturday, so fantasy managers should keep an eye on how the Thunder divvy up both players' moving forward. The second-year center's scoring has been all over the map lately, as he's posted tallies of 20, one, 10, 11, five, 13, and six points over his last seven games, respectively. He'll look to bounce back Tuesday on the road against the Jazz.
Brown recorded 13 points (6-10 FG, 1-1 FT), 11 rebounds, a steal and a block across 31 minutes in Thursday's loss against the Cavaliers. Brown finished the game as the Thunder's third-best scorer while pacing the team in rebounds and posting another double-double -- his third one over his last six appearances. Brown hasn't been as productive -- and dominant -- as he was during a six-game stretch in March in which he averaged 13.7 points and 14.3 rebounds per game, but he remains a nightly double-double threat due to his excellent two-way skill set.
Brown had just five points (2-8 FG, 1-3 FT), 10 rebounds and one block in 27 minutes during Wednesday's 113-102 loss to the Hornets. The shine has certainly come off Brown over the past few games, something that is certainly not unexpected. After exploding out of the gates, the struggles typically associated with young players have come to fruition. That said, the Thunder are simply looking to develop their youth at this point and so Brown should continue to log heavy minutes moving forward. As long as you can take the good with the bad, he should remain a 12-team option the rest of the way.
Brown delivered 10 points (4-7 FG, 2-4 FT) and 14 rebounds across 23 minutes in Saturday's loss against the Blazers. The Thunder was brutally outmatched in this 48-point defeat, but Brown still delivered fantasy value with his fourth double-double over his last six games. He was coming off a one-point, seven-rebound performance in the previous contest, but the big man once again proved he can produce on both ends of the court. Expect him to play a big role for the Thunder down the stretch.
Brown registered 20 points (6-10 FG, 8-9 FT), 11 rebounds and a block across 30 minutes in Wednesday's win over the Raptors. Brown has been one of the Thunder's most pleasant surprises this season, and since he's already inked a multi-year deal with the franchise, he seems primed to play a big role down the stretch. The sophomore center has responded with a string of excellent performances, and he has four double-doubles in his last six games -- a span in which he's averaged 13.8 points, 14.7 rebounds, 1.0 steals and 1.3 blocks. That'll play in any fantasy format.
