Top Alperen Sengun News

  • Rockets' Alperen Sengun: Double-double in Sunday's win

    Sengun produced 12 points (4-9 FG, 4-5 FT), 12 rebounds, six assists, two blocks and two steals in 24 minutes during Sunday's 114-109 victory over Washington.

    It's the 29th double-double of the season for Sengun, who reeled off six straight to wrap up his second NBA season. The 20-year-old averaged 16.7 points, 13.8 boards, 5.0 assists, 1.7 steals, 1.3 blocks and 1.0 threes over that stretch, and barring a significant addition to the Rockets' frontcourt in the offseason, he could be headed for a big 2023-24 campaign.

  • Rockets' Alperen Sengun: Hauls in career-high 21 boards

    Sengun ended Friday's 112-109 win over the Hornets with 14 points (4-9 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 5-6 FT), 21 rebounds, three assists, one block and two steals over 32 minutes.

    Sengun was a beast on the boards Friday, pulling down a career-high 21 rebounds to go with 14 points. That makes five consecutive double-doubles for Sengun, showing what he can do when given the minutes he deserves. Over that period, he is averaging 17.4 points, 14.2 rebounds, 4.8 assists, 1.6 steals and 1.2 blocks. What happens next season is anyone's guess, but should he land a consistent 32-minute role, the top 40 remains a realistic goal.

  • Rockets' Alperen Sengun: Posts another double-double

    Sengun closed Tuesday's 124-103 win over Denver with 20 points (7-14 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 4-5 FT), 10 rebounds, seven assists, one block and three steals over 38 minutes.

    Sengun recorded a fourth consecutive double-double during Tuesday's victory, and he also came within three dimes of a triple-double while matching his second-highest assist total of the season. The second-year pro has been dominant in recent matchups, averaging 16.4 points, 9.5 rebounds and 4.0 assists in 32.8 minutes per game over his last eight appearances.

  • Rockets' Alperen Sengun: Majestic performance Sunday

    Sengun supplied 18 points (9-17 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 0-2 FT), 15 rebounds, five assists, three blocks and two steals across 38 minutes during Sunday's 134-109 loss to the Lakers.

    Sengun had a productive night Sunday, putting up solid contributions on both ends of the floor. While his numbers have been somewhat inconsistent over the past couple of months, Sengun offers enough for his managers in redraft and dynasty leagues to be excited about. In projecting his outlook, the Rockets' offseason additions and subtractions will likely determine exactly where Sengun goes in drafts heading into the 2023-24 campaign.

  • Rockets' Alperen Sengun: Posts strong final line

    Sengun amassed 21 points (10-16 FG, 1-3 FT), 12 rebounds, two assists, one block and one steal in 33 minutes during Wednesday's 123-114 loss to the Nets.

    Sengun reached the 20-point threshold for the first time since March 22, and he tallied his fifth double-double through 14 appearances this month. It was a positive sign to see his shot volume tick up after being held to single-digit attempts in two of his last three games, and he's now averaging 14.2 points, 8.7 rebounds, 3.4 assists and 1.1 steals so far in March.

  • Rockets' Alperen Sengun: Bounces back with big game

    Sengun supplied 25 points (11-15 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 3-6 FT), eight rebounds, four assists and two steals over 32 minutes before fouling out of Wednesday's 130-125 loss to the Grizzlies.

    Sengun missed Monday's loss to Golden State due to illness but returned to the court Wednesday without any restrictions. Aside from the poor shooting from the free-throw line, Sengun delivered an excellent all-around performance before fouling out with just 1:26 remaining in the fourth quarter. The second-year pro should continue to play a big role down the stretch for the Rockets, who are looking to build for the future.

  • Rockets' Alperen Sengun: Not listed on injury report

    Sengun (illness) is not on the injury report ahead of Wednesday's game in Memphis.

    An illness forced Sengun to the sidelines Monday, but it appears it'll only be a one-game absence for the big man. With Sengun back in action Wednesday evening, expect Tari Eason to return to the second unit, where his minutes will likely be reduced to the mid-20s. Usman Garuba also figures to see a reduction in minutes.

  • Rockets' Alperen Sengun: Dealing with illness

    Sengun is questionable for Monday's game against the Warriors due to an illness, Adam Wexler of Sportstalk 790 Houston reports.

    Sengun played 31 minutes during the first half of Houston's back-to-back set Sunday, but he's apparently under the weather a day later. If he's sidelined Monday, Usman Garuba, Boban Marjanovic and Frank Kaminsky are all candidates for increased roles.

    Sengun (groin) posted 13 points (6-10 FG, 1-2 FT), nine rebounds, six assists, two blocks and one steal over 31 minutes during Wednesday's 114-110 victory over the Lakers.

    Sengun missed the Rockets' previous game due to a groin injury, but he was able to suit up against the Lakers. The big man recorded a modest 13 points but left an imprint on the contest in various ways, finishing tied for the team lead with nine rebounds and six assists while adding two blocks and a steal. Sengun is averaging 13.6 points, 9.4 rebounds 4.0 dimes, 1.3 steals and 0.9 blocks through seven games in March.
