    Trail Blazers' Pat Connaughton: Tallies 16 off bench in OT win

    Pat Connaughton supplied 16 points (5-9 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 4-4 FT), two rebounds and one assist across 22 minutes in Monday's 124-120 overtime win over the Bulls.The third-year guard has been a steady presence off the bench thus far this season, and he's now seen at least 22 minutes in five straight games. Connaughton has a pair of double-digit scoring efforts during that span, and he's shot between 50.0 and 83.3 percent in four of those contests. While his production remains relatively scoring-dependent, he's an intriguing prospect for those in deep formats looking for some back-of-the-roster help in the shooting categories.

    Trail Blazers' Pat Connaughton: Not starting Tuesday

    Pat Connaughton will return to a reserve role for Tuesday's tilt against the Wizards, Mike Richman of the Oregonian reports.Connaughton has started the previous five games at small forward but he will be replaced Tuesday but Maurice Harkless. He saw 23.7 minutes per game as a starter compared to just 18.4 as a reserve to begin the season, so his workload figures to take a hit as a result of the move. It remains to be seen if the Portland Trail Blazers plan on sticking with this change going forward or if it is just matchup based.

    Trail Blazers' Pat Connaughton: Scores 17 points in Monday's win

    Pat Connaughton contributed 17 points (7-9 FG, 3-4 3Pt), two rebounds, and two assists in 26 minutes during Monday's 103-91 win over the Knicks.Making his third straight start, Connaughton was on fire from the field. It's possible Al-Faruq Aminu (ankle) will return to the active lineup for Thursday's game against the Bucks, but Connaughton seems to be in the process of earning a more reliable role going forward. In fact, he has seen 63 minutes over the last two games while combining for 29 points while Maurice Harkless has scored six points in 31 minutes over these last two tilts.

    Trail Blazers' Pat Connaughton: To start again Saturday

    Pat Connaughton posted four points (2-2 FG), two assists and one rebound across 15 minutes in Friday's win over the Nets and will start again in Saturday's matchup with the Wizards, Casey Holdahl of reports.Connaughton got a surprise starting nod over Maurice Harkless, but Harkless still played 19 minutes to Connaughton's 15. Nevertheless, head coach Terry Stotts must have liked what he saw with Connaughton in the starting lineup, as he'll be back there Saturday in Washington. He still doesn't do enough offensively, however, to warrant any sort of fantasy value.

    Trail Blazers' Pat Connaughton: Gets starting nod Friday

    Pat Connaughton will start at small forward in Friday's game against the Nets, Casey Holdahl of reports.This lineup change comes as a bit of surprise, as coach Terry Stotts will move Maurice Harkless to the bench in favor of Connaughton. It will be Connaughton's first start of the season and second of his career, and he could be in line for additional minutes with Harkless struggling to give the Blazers much on the offensive end this season. The former Notre Dame standout is shooting an impressive 42.3 percent from behind the arc this season.

    Trail Blazers' Pat Connaughton: Scores career-high 24 points Wednesday

    Pat Connaughton collected a career-high 24 points (9-14 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT), two rebounds and two assists across 32 minutes during Wednesday's 124-76 blowout win over the Suns.With starting shooting guard C.J. McCollum (suspension) absent and the team turning Wednesday's game into a blowout early on, Connaughton was handed big minutes and responded in a big way. That said, he saw just 8.1 minutes per game last season and isn't projected to have a much bigger role this year considering the team's lack of roster turnover. Ultimately, Wednesday can probably be chalked up as an outlier.

    Trail Blazers' Pat Connaughton: Option picked up for 2017-18

    Pat Connaughton had his $1.4 million option for the 2017-18 season picked up by the Portland Trail Blazers on Thursday, Jason Quick of CSN Northwest reports.Connaughton has spent his first two season with the Trail Blazers and is coming off a 2016-17 campaign where he played just 8.1 minutes per contest across 39 games. Despite having his option picked up, Connaughton remains a bit buried on the team's depth chart on the wing and is unlikely to play a significant role moving forward. He'll be someone to avoid in the majority of fantasy formats unless an injury occurs higher up.
