Adams scored four points (2-4 FG) and grabbed seven rebounds across 33 minutes in Friday's loss to the Lakers.
Adams' most intriguing moment perhaps came in the second quarter, when he got tangled up with LeBron James, resulting in a technical foul being issued to both players. Aside from the mild dustup, Adams didn't make must noise on the court, notching a season-low point total and failing to register a defensive stat. The veteran has been a relatively steady contributor in his first season with the Pelicans, posting per-game averages of 9.9 points, 8.5 rebounds and 2.6 assists.
Adams (head) will be active for Wednesday's game against the Clippers.
Adams is off the injury report and the center likely would have played against the Mavericks on Monday before the game was ultimately canceled. Adams, who's averaging 10.3 points and 8.9 rebounds, presumably will make his 10th straight start to the season versus the Clippers.
Adams (head) was upgraded to probable for Monday's game against the Mavericks before the contest was canceled due to Dallas not having the necessary eight players available, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
New Orleans had listed Adams as questionable for the contest on its initial injury report released Sunday, but the center likely would have been able to suit up Monday had the game been played as scheduled. With that in mind, Adams should be ready to go when the Pelicans return to action Wednesday against the Clippers.
Adams is questionable for Monday's game against the Mavericks due to a migraine.
Adams popped up on the Pelicans' injury report ahead of Monday's contest since he's dealing with a migraine. If he's unable to play, Jaxson Hayes and Willy Hernangomez should see increased usage for New Orleans.
Adams scored 10 points (4-5 FG, 2-5 FT) to go along with 11 rebounds, 10 assists and one steal across 34 minutes in Wednesday's loss to the Thunder.
Adams recorded the first triple-double of his career while facing his former team for the second time. While he's regularly recorded double-digit points and rebounds, Adams had not topped three assists in any other game this season. While he shouldn't be relied on as a steady source of dimes, Adams has shown the ability to rack up defensive stats and boards while also shooting very well from the field. His current 66.0 field-goal percentage would be a career high if he can maintain it, though he's also currently towing a career-low 47.6 free-throw percentage.
Adams produced 13 points (4-7 FG, 5-8 FT), 10 rebounds, two steals and an assist across 31 minutes in Saturday's 120-116 win over the Raptors.
After recording a double-double in a revenge game against the Thunder, Adams notched his second double-double of the season in Saturday's victory. It should be the first of many for Adams, who seems to fit right in with the fast-paced Pelicans.
Adams totaled 14 points (7-13 FG), 10 rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block over 31 minutes in Thursday's 113-80 win over Oklahoma City.
Adams has gotten off to a bit of a slow start early in the season, but he now has double-digit scoring totals in each of the last two games. He also posted a double-double against his former team in Thursday's win. The 27-year-old dealt with a hamstring issue prior to the preseason, but he's played at least 30 minutes in four of the first five games this year.
Adams (hamstring) is in the starting lineup for Monday's preseason game against the Heat.
The 27-year-old was considered a game-time decision due to left hamstring soreness, but it doesn't appear to be much of a concern since he's starting the preseason opener. Adams will make his Pelicans debut after spending the first seven years of his career with the Thunder.
Adams is considered questionable for Monday's preseason game against Miami due to a sore left hamstring.
The issue doesn't look to be anything concerning, but it's possible the Pelicans could hold Adams out Monday on a precautionary basis. The big man came over from Oklahoma City this offseason and should have a strong grasp on the starting center job.
Adams signed a two-year, $35 million contract extension with the Pelicans on Monday, Zach Lowe of ESPN.com reports.
Adams was dealt from the Thunder to the Pelicans on Saturday, and the team has elected to lock him up for the next two years by offering him $35 million guaranteed. He's expected to slot in as the starting center in New Orleans and will get a chance to team up with the 2019 first-round selection, Zion Williamson, at power forward.
The Thunder are finalizing a deal to send Adams to the Pelicans, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
The specifics of this trade have not yet been reported, but it has been confirmed that Adams will be a Pelican. The move is unsurprising, as the Thunder continue their rebuild by trading veterans for young players and draft capital. The move happened hours after New Orleans let Derrick Favors walk in free agency, which opened up the starting center position. It remains to be seen how Adams will mesh alongside star big man Zion Williamson in the frontcourt, as spacing could be an issue. The 27-year-old Adams averaged 10.9 points, 9.3 rebounds, 0.8 steals and 1.1 blocks across 26.7 minutes in Oklahoma City last season.
Adams delivered six points (3-9 FG, 0-0 3Pt, 0-0 FT), 14 rebounds, one assist and one steal in 31 minutes of Monday's 104-100 defeat of Houston.
Adams tied his lowest scoring total of the series but managed to snag 14 rebounds in a second-straight game. In the six games against Houston, the 27-year-old has averaged a double-double with 10.2 points and 12.0 rebounds per contest. Game 7 is Wednesday night.
Adams went for 12 points (6-8 FG, 0-2 FT) and 14 rebounds in 26 minutes during Saturday's 114-80 Game 5 loss against the Rockets.
Adams was one of four Thunder players who scored in double digits in this game -- particularly due to the struggles of guys such as Danilo Gallinari and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, who combined for five total points -- and also posted his best rebounding output of the playoffs thus far. Adams can't be trusted for offensive production on a steady basis, but he has averaged 11.0 points and 11.6 rebounds through the first five games of the series against Houston.
Adams (knee) managed 12 points (4-5 FG, 4-6 FT), eight rebounds and one assist in 26 minutes during Monday's 117-114 Game 4 win over the Rockets.
Adams suffered a bruised right knee in Saturday's Game 3, but he was cleared from the injury report prior to this one. Oklahoma City went with a small lineup during the overtime session of Game 3 after Adams was ruled out, and coach Billy Donovan opted to go with a similar look for a stretch of time again in Monday's Game 4. If that trend continues, Adams may not see 30-plus minutes again during this series, though he combined to log 65 minutes in his previous two tilts.
Adams (knee) doesn't appear on the injury report ahead of Monday's Game 4 matchup with the Rockets, Erik Gee of SI.com reports.
Coach Billy Donovan suggested Sunday that Adams was "fine" after suffering a bruised right knee in the fourth quarter of the Thunder's Game 3 victory; the injury kept him sidelined for the overtime period. While Adams was resting, the Thunder used Danilo Gallinari as a small-ball center rather than deploying Adams' top backup, Nerlens Noel. From a statistical standpoint, Adams hasn't been hindered much by playing against the smaller, faster Houston lineups, as he's averaging 10.3 points, 12.0 boards and 2.3 assists in 31.0 minutes per game over the first three contests of the series.
Adams suffered a bruised right knee during Saturday's Game 3 against the Rockets and will not return, per the ESPN broadcast.
Adams finishes the contest with six points (3-7 FG, 0-3 FT), 13 rebounds, two assists and one block in 35 minutes. The severity of his injury isn't clear, and he should be considered questionable for Monday's Game 4. If Adams is forced to sit that game out, Nerlens Noel would be a strong candidate to see extra minutes, though the Thunder could opt to space out with Mike Muscala or go small.
Adams finished with 17 points (7-13 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 3-6 FT), 12 rebounds and two assists in 28 minutes during Tuesday's 123-108 Game 1 loss to the Rockets.
Adams was a factor inside the paint, gobbling up lots of boards while taking advantage of Houston's undersized front court. Assuming Thunder coach Billy Donovan doesn't try to match Houston's style and run more small-ball lineups, Adams may very well continue to provide ample points and rebounds against an opponent that seems to be encouraging Oklahoma City's big man to go to work down low.
Adams (lower leg) has been cleared to play Wednesday against the Heat, Brady Trantham of The Franchise Sports reports.
After missing the previous three games due to a bruised lower leg, Adams will make his return to the lineup for OKC's second-to-last seeding game. In the bubble, he's averaging 14.3 points, 9.3 rebounds and 1.7 assists in 29.7 minutes.
Adams (leg) is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Heat.
The Thunder are hoping to have their starting center back Wednesday, but Adams will likely go through a pregame workout before a decision on his status is made. Adams has missed the last three games with a bruised lower left leg.
Adams (lower leg) is listed as out for Monday's game against the Suns.
He'll be sidelined for the third game in a row while managing a lower left leg contusion. With Adams' top backup, Nerlens Noel (ankle), also sidelined, the Thunder will likely turn to Mike Muscala and Darius Bazley to fill most of the minutes at center.
