At the time the NBA suspended play, Adams had scored fewer than 10 points in four of his last five games.
Adams has had an up-and-down season, overall, and that continued after the All-Star break. In his first four post-break games, Adams averaged 17.8 points, 11.8 rebounds, 2.0 steals and 1.3 blocks, but his production dipped in his final five game before the shutdown. In that sample, Adams posted just 7.6 points, 8.2 rebounds, 1.4 steals and 0.8 blocks in 25.2 minutes.
Adams supplied eight points (4-5 FG), seven rebounds, three assists and a steal in just 17 minutes during Oklahoma City's 133-86 loss to the Bucks.
Despite the efficiency, Adams saw little usage while playing far less than his 27 minutes averaged per game this season. He was too slow to stick with Giannis Antetokounmpo (13-20 FG) and is a potential scapegoat of the Thunder allowing Milwaukee to hit a season-high 21 threes. After the back-to-back, Adams will now be off until Tuesday.
Adams notched 21 points (8-12 FG, 5-6 FT), 14 rebounds and a steal in 27 minutes during Sunday's 131-103 win over the Spurs.
This marks his fourth straight double-double. While he's long been a nightly threat for double-digit points and boards, the big man has been outdoing himself of late. Adams has averaged 15.3 points with 13.0 rebounds, 2.5 steals and 1.5 blocks during that four-game stretch.
Adams accumulated 11 points (5-10 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 0-1 FT), 11 rebounds, three blocks, two assists and one steal in 28 minutes during Thursday's 123-118 win over the Pelicans.
One game after going for a double-double with four steals, two assists and a block (not to mention making both of his free-throw attempts), Adams double-doubled once more, adding in three blocks and even a three off of a half-court buzzer-beater. The 26-year old's fantasy value has steadily declined over the last couple of seasons. One upside, however, is that Adams' 2.6 assists per game are a career-high, which is interesting considering that the Thunder play some guard-heavy lineups. However, his points per game are as low as they've been in three years, and he hasn't shown the ability to take the next step. At this point, Adams is what he is, but he remains relevant in standard leagues as a player who will provide strong rebounds and field-goal percentage, plus decent blocks.
Adams contributed 10 points (4-9 FG, 2-2 FT), 10 rebounds, four steals, two assists and one block in 32 minutes during Tuesday's 114-106 loss against the Spurs.
Adams has scored in double digits just twice in his last 11 games, although both outputs have come in his last three outings. He has grabbed double-digit boards in back-to-back games as well, so he is showing signs of turning things around, but the veteran big man hasn't had a good start to 2020. He is only averaging 9.0 points and 9.3 rebounds in 30.3 minutes per game in four February contests.
Adams accumulated four points (2-10 FG, 0-1 3Pt), 11 rebounds, two assists and one block across 30 minutes during Sunday's 112-111 loss to the Celtics.
Adams pulled down double-digit rebounds for the first time since Jan. 13, but he lost his offensive game in the process, hitting just two field goals and failing to attempt a free throw. He has seen his workload tick back up lately, however, as he's averaging 29.7 minutes across the past three games after a four-game stretch in which he saw just 24.0 minutes.
Adams managed eight points (4-6 FG), five rebounds, two assists, two steals and one block in 23 minutes during Friday's 111-107 victory over Phoenix.
Adams was in early foul trouble Friday, limiting him to only 23 minutes. His playing time has slowly been trending up after he missed a period with a myriad of injuries. It has been a rollercoaster of a season for the Kiwi but with the Thunder poised for a playoff push, he needs only stay healthy to be a solid top-80 player the rest of the way.
Adams had zero points (0-2 FG), four blocks, two assists and one rebound in 23 minutes during Saturday's 113-104 victory over the Timberwolves.
Adams returned from a two-game absence in this one, which is significant for the Thunder seeing as Nerlens Noel (facial surgery) was out. His workload was lighter than usual, which typically wouldn't be surprising for a player returning from injury, but there was a real lack of options in this frontcourt. Playing less than six minutes in the first quarter, the Thunder struggled to contain Karl-Anthony Towns with Adams sidelined, as Towns scored 19 of the Timberwolves' first 22 points. Adams is averaging 26.9 minutes per game due partly to some of his injury struggles this season. He's managed to remain serviceable in fantasy, even in those fewer minutes per game, thanks to his solid rebounds and field-goal percentage - two strengths which alluded him in this contest. If the Thunder expect to hold their current seventh-seed position in the playoff hunt, they'll want to get Adams to full strength.

After injuring his ankle in a win against the Rockets on Monday, Adams has been hit with the questionable tag for the third straight game.

Adams injured his ankle during the first quarter of Monday's game win over the Rockets and will miss at least one game as a result. The big man was able to go through warmups before being ruled out, so there's a chance he's ready to go for Friday's game against Atlanta. In the meantime, look for Nerlens Noel to start at center in place of Adams on Wednesday, while Mike Muscala should see increased minutes as the primary backup.

Adams (ankle) will not return to Monday's game against Houston, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Adams left the game in the first quarter with a sprained left ankle, and the Thunder have since clarified that he'll miss the remainder of the contest.

Adams (knee) put up five points (1-7 FG, 3-4 FT) to go with nine rebounds and three assists in 24 minutes Saturday in the Thunder's 119-106 win over the Trail Blazers.
Back in action from a one-game absence due to a bruised knee, Adams saw less run than usual, as he essentially split the center minutes with backup Nerlens Noel. Once the injury is further in the rear-view mirror, Adams should see his minutes reach the high-20s-to-low-30s range. Prior to suffering the injury Jan. 15, Adams had enjoyed a hot start to the month, averaging 14.0 points, 12.1 boards, 2.9 assists, 1.1 blocks and 1.0 steal in 30.6 minutes over his first seven games of 2020.
