Heat's Meyers Leonard: Dealt to Heat
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leonard was traded to the Heat on Monday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

Leonard will be joined by Moe Harkless in Miami, while the Heat ship Hassan Whiteside up to Portland. Leonard could open the season as the backup behind Bam Adebayo, though it's unclear if Kelly Olynyk will remain in Miami, or if he'll be a part of the sign-and-trade involving Jimmy Butler.

Trail Blazers' Meyers Leonard: Racks up career-high point total
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leonard registered 30 points (12-16 FG, 5-8 3Pt, 1-2 FT), 12 rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block across 40 minutes during the Trail Blazers' 119-117 overtime loss to the Warriors in Game 4 of the Western Conference finals Monday.

Leonard drew a second consecutive start, and head coach Terry Stotts' decision to keep him in the starting five proved to be an unequivocally prudent one. The veteran big man notched a career-high point total while pacing the Trail Blazers in both scoring and rebounds. Leonard's floor-spacing ability was on full display, as he also led Portland in three-point percentage. A career reserve, Leonard's two-game postseason surge may serve as the launching pad to additional opportunities in his 2019-20 contract year.

Trail Blazers' Meyers Leonard: Shines in starting lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leonard finished with 16 points (6-12 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 1-1 FT), four assists and three rebounds over 31 minutes in the Trail Blazers' loss to the Warriors on Saturday.

Leonard got his first playoff start of the season, and he made the most of his opportunity. The big man scored 16 points, thanks to a trio of triples, and he found ways to contribute on the glass and by facilitating teammates. Although the Blazers lost, Leonard looked to be more effective than Enes Kanter had been, and the former may have earned another start in Monday's win-or-go-home Game 4.

Trail Blazers' Meyers Leonard: Starting for Game 3
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leonard will start during Saturday's Game 3 against the Warriors, Joe Freeman of The Oregonian reports.

After not playing in Game 1, Leonard saw 17 minutes in Game 2, posting seven points, six boards and two assists in 17 minutes. In looking for a change of pace, coach Terry Stotts will opt to start Leonard over Enes Kanter.

Trail Blazers' Meyers Leonard: Double-doubles in spot start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leonard delivered 19 points (8-13 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 11 rebounds and three assists across 42 minutes in the Trail Blazers' 136-131 win over the Kings on Wednesday.

Leonard was one of several seldom-used Blazers reserves to emerge from mothballs and draw the start in the finale. The veteran big man did see more consistent run in the earlier portion of the season, and given that he's seen action in the postseason in four prior campaigns in his career, he's likely to be a part of the frontcourt rotation in the first-round series versus the Thunder.

Trail Blazers' Meyers Leonard: Starting Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leonard will get the start for the season finale Wednesday against Sacramento, Joe Freeman of The Oregonian reports.

Leonard will start at center ahead of Enes Kanter on Wednesday. In 60 games this season, the veteran center's averaging 5.6 points, 3.7 rebounds and 1.2 assists in 13.9 minutes.

Trail Blazers' Meyers Leonard: Grabs four boards in seven minutes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leonard totaled two points (1-2 FG, 0-1 3Pt) and four rebounds in seven minutes during Friday's 118-98 win over the Hawks.

Leonard earned 18 minutes in the last tilt, which was the team's first without Jusuf Nurkic (lower leg). Despite the fact that Nurkic has been ruled out for the rest of the season, Leonard is clearly still behind Enes Kanter and Zach Collins on the depth chart.

Trail Blazers' Meyers Leonard: Thrives in spot start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leonard turned in 16 points (6-7 FG, 4-5 3Pt), six rebounds and four assists across 25 minutes in the Trail Blazers' 132-105 win over the Jazz on Wednesday.

Subbing for Jusuf Nurkic (knee) in the starting lineup Wednesday, Leonard stepped up with a performance that served as an ideal complement to the scoreboard-busting exploits of Damian Lillard and C.J. McCollum. The floor-spacing big was especially impressive from distance, racking up a game-high amount of three-point buckets. The Trail Blazers are now off until next Tuesday, which affords Nurkic ample time to return to health. However, should he be unable to take the court versus the Heat that night, Leonard would presumably draw another turn with the first unit.

Trail Blazers' Meyers Leonard: Starting Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leonard will start at center Wednesday against the Jazz, Casey Holdahl of the Trail Blazers' official site reports.

Leonard will get the start with Jusuf Nurkic (knee) sitting out. It's unclear how long Nurkic's anticipated to miss, but owners can expect both Leonard and Zach Collins to see a boost in minutes during his absence. Through 55 games, Leonard's averaging 5.9 points, 4.5 rebounds and 0.9 threes in 15.4 minutes.

Trail Blazers' Meyers Leonard: Scores 11 points in 19 minutes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leonard supplied 11 points (4-5 FG, 3-4 3Pt), seven rebounds, two assists, and one steal in 19 minutes during Monday's 115-107 loss to the Kings.

Leonard reached double figures in scoring for the seventh time through 42 appearances this season, and for the first time since Dec. 23. He's only a viable option in deeper leagues.

Trail Blazers' Meyers Leonard: Strong work off bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leonard pitched in 12 points (4-7 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT), eight rebounds, two assists and one block across 27 minutes in the Trail Blazers' 99-92 win over the Grizzlies on Wednesday.

Leonard stepped up in the low-scoring win, pacing the Blazers' bench in points and rebounds. It was the seven-year veteran's best showing on the boards since Nov. 25, while his scoring haul served as his highest since Nov. 20 versus the Knicks. Leonard is capable of making strong offensive contributions when he takes enough shots, but his minutes remain too inconsistent for him to keep production like Wednesday's up over an extended stretch.

Trail Blazers' Meyers Leonard: Grabs 16 boards in relief
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leonard posted nine points (3-5 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 1-2 FT), 16 rebounds and three assists across 24 minutes in Sunday's 104-100 loss to the Clippers.

With Jusuf Nurkic (shoulder) sitting out the second half, Leonard stepped in and contributed in a big way with a season-high 16 rebounds. Leonard routinely sees an average of only 12.3 minutes per game when Nurkic is healthy, so this considerable total is somewhat of an aberration, although the 7-1 center's upside makes him an excellent second-unit backup. Nurkic's injury doesn't appear to be serious, so Leonard should return to his usual numbers upon Nurkic's return.

November 21, 2018 02:00 PM
Trail Blazers' Meyers Leonard: Equals season-high point total
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leonard totaled 15 points (5-9 FG, 3-4 3Pt 2-2 FT), three rebounds, two assists and one steal across 17 minutes in the Trail Blazers' 118-114 win over the Knicks on Tuesday.

Leonard was able to serve as a viable source of offense on the second unit. The floor-stretching big has scored in double digits in two of his last three games and has three such efforts overall in November. Leonard is capable of getting hot from distance on any given night, but a minutes load that rarely exceeds the teens serves to cap his overall fantasy utility.

Trail Blazers' Meyers Leonard: Double-doubles in blowout victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leonard finished with 15 points (3-7 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 8-8 FT), 12 rebounds, two assists, and one steal in 21 minutes during Sunday's 111-81 victory over the Timberwolves.

Leonard saw some additional run with this game being over basically from the opening tip. It was his first double-double of the season and something that he may not do again for the rest of the season. Leonard has the game to fit the modern NBA but is simply to far down on the depth chart to make any real fantasy noise. Don't get too excited by this performance.

Trail Blazers' Meyers Leonard: Scores five points in Saturday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leonard had five points (2-2 FG, 1-1 FT) and two rebounds in 10 minutes during Saturday's 121-108 win over the Spurs.

Leonard is averaging just nine minutes per game through the first two tilts after averaging 16.4 through five preseason contests. Despite the offseason departure of Ed Davis, it appears Leonard can safely be left on the waiver wire.

September 30, 2018 12:37 AM
Trail Blazers' Meyers Leonard: Leads Blazers with 14 in preseason loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leonard scored a team-high 14 points (4-5 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 3-3 FT) while adding two assists in 15 minutes off the bench during Saturday's preseason loss to the Raptors.

While there's still a long way to go before the regular season tips off, Leonard's three-pointers were an encouraging sign given that he averaged only 0.8 three-point attempts a game last season, a big drop even after you factor in his loss of court time. If the 26-year-old is going to re-establish himself as a key cog in the Blazers' frontcourt rotation, it will likely come by proving he can produce in a stretch big role.

Trail Blazers' Meyers Leonard: Just two points in three minutes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leonard had just two points (1-1 FG) and two rebounds in three minutes during Thursday's 96-94 loss to the Rockets.

Leonard has lately found himself stuck at the bottom of the Trail Blazers' rotation like his performance Thursday indicates. The former Illinois star is averaging a mere 3.3 points and 2.1 rebounds in 7.8 minutes per game this season.

February 1, 2018 09:00 PM
Trail Blazers' Meyers Leonard: Probable with low back soreness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leonard is probable for Friday's game against the Raptors, Casey Holdahl of Blazers.com reports.

Leonard has been dealing with a sore back lately, but hasn't seen much run regardless of health, averaging just 8.9 minutes per game in his 17 appearances this season. More word on his status should arrive following morning shootaround.

Trail Blazers' Meyers Leonard: Available to play Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leonard (back) is available to play in Wednesday's matchup with the Bulls, Jason Quick of NBC Sports Northwest reports.

Leonard was added to the injury report this afternoon with a sore back, but it's nothing too serious and he'll play through it Wednesday. Despite being available, Leonard has seen a total of six minutes over the team's last six games, so he can safely be avoided for fantasy purposes.

January 31, 2018 03:32 PM
Trail Blazers' Meyers Leonard: Questionable Wednesday vs. Bulls
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Leonard is dealing with a sore back and is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Bulls, Jason Quick of NBC Sports Northwest reports.

Considering it's being listed as soreness, it doesn't sound like anything overly serious, though his availability for Wednesday's game is now in question. Even if Leonard were to sit out, he's been a DNP-CD in four of the last six games, so his absence wouldn't have an impact on the regular rotation. Look for another update to provided following pregame warmups.
