  • Hornets' Theo Maledon: Coming off bench Friday

    Maledon will come off the bench Friday against the Wizards.

    Terry Rozier (illness) is back following a one-game absence, so Maledon will head back to the bench. In his past six games as a reserve, he's averaged 7.8 points, 3.5 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 1.3 steals in 20.3 minutes.

  • Hornets' Theo Maledon: Season-best performance Monday

    Maledon notched 11 points (4-13 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds, eight assists and three steals in 39 minutes during Monday's 140-105 loss to the Celtics.

    Maledon logged a whopping 39 minutes in the loss, putting up season-high numbers across the board, bar the scoring. It really is a case of the last man standing in Charlotte right now, with Maledon taking full advantage. As long as the Hornets are without their backcourt, Maledon makes for a streaming option in competitive leagues. However, just be aware that this opportunity could end as soon as Friday when they face off against the Wizards.

  • Hornets' Theo Maledon: Starting Monday

    Maledon is starting Monday's contest against the Celtics, Keith Smith of Spotrac.com reports.

    With LaMelo Ball (ankle), Terry Rozier (illness) and Dennis Smith (ankle) all out with injuries, Maledon has entered Charlotte's starting lineup Monday. This will mark Maledon's first start with the Hornets. The 21-year-old guard is averaging 5.1 points, 2.3 rebounds and 2.2 assist across 15.3 minutes per game over his first 18 showings this season.

  • Hornets' Theo Maledon: Strong scoring off bench

    Maledon had 14 points (4-7 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 5-6 FT), seven rebounds, three assists and one steal in 26 minutes during Friday's 110-108 win over Minnesota.

    Maledon scored in double digits for just the third time in 18 games this season, and he did so Friday in an efficient fashion. He also recorded a season-high seven boards in the win. Maledon has shown that he's capable of the occasional scoring outburst, but he's averaging only 5.1 points, 2.3 rebounds and 2.2 assists so far this season.

  • Hornets' Theo Maledon: Best performance of season Monday

    Maledon notched 14 points (4-4 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 4-5 FT), three rebounds, three assists and two steals over 25 minutes during Monday's 112-105 victory over the Magic.

    Taking advantage of Dennis Smith's (ankle) absence and James Bouknight playing only four minutes, Maledon had his best performance of the season despite LaMelo Ball being available. His play was an outlier, and fantasy managers don't need to take action. For his career, Maledon averages a modest 13.6 points, 4.6 rebounds, 4.6 assists, and 1.2 steals per 36 minutes, and he will head back to being a depth piece once Smith is back.

  • Hornets' Theo Maledon: Secures two rebounds in loss

    Maledon totaled zero points (0-1 FG, 0-1 3Pt), two rebounds and one assist in eight minutes during Thursday's 117-112 overtime loss to the Heat.

    Although the Hornets went into overtime during Thursday's defeat, Maledon had minimal playing time and was held scoreless for a third consecutive game. He averaged 7.1 points per game for the Thunder last year but is averaging just 3.8 points in 12.8 minutes per game over his first 12 appearances with the Hornets.

  • Hornets' Theo Maledon: Near perfect shooting Wednesday

    Maledon notched 15 points (6-7 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 1-1 FT), four assists and one steal across 16 minutes during Wednesday's 134-131 overtime loss to New York.

    Seven of Maledon's 15 points came in three minutes in the third quarter as he nailed a three and later scored on consecutive possessions. The 21-year-old has been known to score in bunches, as he did at the end of the season last year while playing for the Thunder, averaging 22.3 points in one five-game span. After playing just four minutes over the season's first two games, he's gotten at least 15 minutes of playing time in each of the last two contests and may be in line for a bigger role as the season progresses.

  • Hornets' Theo Maledon: Joins Charlotte on two-way deal

    The Hornets signed Maledon to a two-way contract Friday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    After being waived by the Rockets on Tuesday, it didn't take long for Maledon to find a new landing spot. The 21-year-old point guard will add some depth to the Hornets' backcourt for 2022-23 after averaging 7.1 points, 2.6 rebounds and 2.2 assists per contest last season with the Thunder.

  • Theo Maledon: Cut loose by Rockets

    The Rockets waived Maledon on Tuesday, Kelly Iko of The Athletic reports.

    Maledon was sent to the Rockets as part of a package trade that sent multiple players in both directions in late September. Unfortunately, the 2020 second-round pick won't survive cuts and will now look for work elsewhere. He logged nearly 18 minutes per game with the Thunder last season, so he could have a shot at finding work on another NBA roster.

  • Rockets' Theo Maledon: Gets traded to Houston

    The Thunder traded Maledon, along with Derrick Favors, Ty Jerome, Maurice Harkless and a 2025 second-round pick to the Rockets in exchange for David Nwaba, Sterling Brown, Trey Burke and Marquese Chriss on Thursday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    After playing with the Thunder for his first two seasons in the league, Maledon is set to join a Houston squad that has limited depth in their backcourt. The 21-year-old averaged 8.6 points, 2.9 rebounds and 2.9 assists in 22.6 minutes of action over his two seasons with Oklahoma City. Maledon figures to see minutes behind Kevin Porter and Jalen Green this upcoming season.

  • Thunder's Theo Maledon: Coming off bench

    Maledon will come off the bench Tuesday against the Trail Blazers.

    The Thunder are reaching a new level of tanking, benching Maledon in favor of a 10-day player in Zavier Simpson. As a reserve, Maledon has averaged 5.6 points, 2.1 rebounds and 1.7 assists in 15.5 minutes.

  • Thunder's Theo Maledon: Scores season-high 28 points

    Maledon notched 28 points (10-22 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 5-7 FT), six rebounds, six assists, two blocks and one steal in 37 minutes during Friday's 110-101 loss to the Pistons.

    Maledon scored at least 20 points for a fourth time over his past five appearances and has averaged 22.8 points, 5.6 rebounds, 5.6 assists and 1.0 steals in 35.0 minutes per game during that stretch. With Tre Mann nursing a hamstring injury and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander (ankle) out for the season, Maledon figures to continue garnering a sizable role during the final weeks of the season.

  • Thunder's Theo Maledon: Sniffs double-double

    Maledon had 18 points (8-14 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 1-1 FT), four rebounds, eight assists and one steal across 34 minutes during Wednesday's 136-118 loss to the Hawks.

    Maledon had a strong all-around game and ended just two dimes shy of posting what would've been his second double-double of the season. In fact, the eight assists tied Maledon's season-best output in that category, and it's also worth noting that he has scored 18 or more points in each of his last four appearances.

  • Thunder's Theo Maledon: Registers double-double in win

    Maledon chipped in 23 points (7-17 FG, 4-9 3Pt, 5-6 FT), 10 rebounds and five assists across 40 minutes during Monday's 134-131 overtime win over Portland.

    Maledon continued his strong play down the stretch for OKC, finishing as one of three Thunder players with 20-plus points and pacing the squad with 10 boards. The second-year guard got the start in place of Tre Mann, who missed the game with a hamstring injury. This was Maledon's third straight game with at least 20 points, and he is averaging 22.7 points, 6.0 rebounds, 4.7 assists and 2.7 three-pointers over that span. He could be a sneaky fantasy add with OKC out of playoff contention and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander (ankle) ruled out for the season.

  • Thunder's Theo Maledon: Leads way for OKC in narrow loss

    Maledon had 20 points (6-13 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 6-6 FT), four rebounds, three assists and two steals across 32 minutes during Saturday's 113-107 loss to the Nuggets.

    Maledon moved into the starting lineup for the first time in nearly two weeks, and the move paid dividends as the point guard paced the Thunder with 20 points. This was Maledon's second straight strong performance as a scorer, coming on the heels of a 25-point, 9-for-13 effort against Orlando on Wednesday. Maledon could stick in the starting lineup moving forward given his recent strong play, though his overall body of work this season suggests that the hot streak could come to an end at any time.

  • Thunder's Theo Maledon: Best game of season

    Maledon amassed 25 points (9-13 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 5-5 FT), six assists, four rebounds, one steal and one block during Wednesday's 118-102 win over the Magic.

    Having previously scored in double figurers just twice since Feb. 28, Maledon erupted for a season best offensively and led the Thunder for a first time this year.The native of France also provided many other statistical contributions along the way, most notably six assists. With his superb outing Wednesday, Maledon has now reached the 20-point mark in two games this season.
