Rockets' Ben McLemore: Fails to score in Game 3 loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McLemore scored zero points (0-2 FG, 0-2 3Pt), adding two rebounds and one steal in 18 minutes during Saturday's 119-107 loss to Oklahoma City.

McLemore laid a goose egg on Saturday, continuing to be one of the most inconsistent players in the league. His overall value is completely reliant on his scoring ability and so when that deserts him, he has very little to fall back on.

Rockets' Ben McLemore: Hits four threes in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McLemore had 16 points (6-16 FG, 4-12 3PT) and three rebounds in Tuesday's loss to the Spurs.

Making a third straight start, McLemore didn't have the most efficient afternoon from the field, but he continues to be a source of volume three-point shooting. Over his last three games, McLemore is now 15-of-36 from deep.

Rockets' Ben McLemore: Cans six treys against Kings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McLemore accumulated 20 points (7-16 FG, 6-14 3Pt), three rebounds and one assist in 27 minutes during Sunday's 129-112 win over the Kings.

McLemore has scored 20 in consecutive contests while combining for 11 treys. He doesn't provide much beyond scoring and threes, but on nights when McLemore has it going he can really fill it up.

Rockets' Ben McLemore: Drills five threes in spot start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McLemore provided 20 points (7-13 FG, 5-10 3Pt, 1-1 FT), four rebounds, an assist, a steal and a block across 30 minutes in Thursday's 113-97 win over the Lakers.

McLemore took over for Russell Westbrook (quad) in the backcourt and had one of his best shooting nights of the season. His best nights this year have come when he's entered the starting lineup. Still, his shooting ability from long range is often overlooked, When you're a second-unit backcourt player on a team with Westbrook and James Harden, stats like McLemore's 40.2 percent conversion rate from downtown can fly under the radar. Even from the bench, he'll heave up five or six bombs from long range, but his overall usage under normal circumstances leaves something to be desired.

Rockets' Ben McLemore: Starting Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McLemore is in the starting lineup for Thursday's contest against the Lakers, Craig Ackerman of AT&T SportsNet Southwest reports.

The Rockets will be without Russell Westbrook, who's battling a quad injury, so McLemore will make his 19th start of the season. The Kansas product averaged 12.6 points and 2.6 rebounds in those previous starts.

Rockets' Ben McLemore: Goes for 26 in scrimmage win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McLemore had 26 points (8-10 FG, 6-7 3PT, 4-4 FT) in Sunday's scrimmage against Memphis.

On a night when Eric Gordon, Russell Westbrook, P.J. Tucker, and Danuel House combined to shoot 4-of-24 from beyond the arc, McLemore stepped up to hit six of his seven three-point attempts off the bench. McLemore also added three rebounds in 24 minutes of action.

Rockets' Ben McLemore: Cleared to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McLemore (illness) will be available Tuesday against Minnesota, Mark Berman of Fox 26 in Houston reports.

McLemore missed Sunday's game with the illness, but he'll be back to availability off the bench Tuesday night. The former lottery pick has not been fantasy-relevant this season.

Rockets' Ben McLemore: Battling illness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McLemore is considered questionable for Tuesday's game against the Timberwolves due to an illness.

McLemore also missed Sunday's loss to Orlando with the same ailment, so the team will wait to see how he feels at shootaround Tuesday morning.

Rockets' Ben McLemore: Starting for Westbrook
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McLemore will start Saturday's contest against the Hornets, Cayleigh Griffin of AT&T SportsNet Southwest reports.

With Russell Westbrook (rest) out, McLemore will join the starting group. Across his past three starts, he's averaging 11.7 points, 2.0 assists and 1.3 rebounds in 27.7 minutes.

Rockets' Ben McLemore: Solid scoring effort
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McLemore finished with 17 points (6-11 FG, 4-9 3Pt, 1-2 FT) and three rebounds in 29 minutes off the bench during Monday's 123-112 win over the Knicks.

McLemore has scored in double digits in back-to-back games for the second time this month, and he has accomplished that feat five times already during February. Neither Russell Westbrook (thumb) nor Eric Gordon (knee) played in this game so that boosted McLemore's playing time, and that could very well be the case again when the Rockets host the Grizzlies on Wednesday.

Rockets' Ben McLemore: Only three points Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mclemore finished with just three points (1-4 FG, 1-4 3Pt) and two rebounds in 18 minutes during Tuesday's 116-105 victory over Boston.

McLemore was a non-factor in the victory, connecting on just one three-pointer and adding very little else. McLemore is nothing more than a three-point streamer and nights such as this certainly don't help his cause. He is only someone to consider on low-volume days if you need a quick boost to your three-point category.

Rockets' Ben McLemore: Scores 13 vs. Suns
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McLemore finished with 13 points (5-10 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT), one board, one assist, and one steal in 25 minutes of a 127-91 loss to the Suns on Friday.

McLemore struggled from deep for the second consecutive game but still managed to finish third on the team in scoring in the contest. The game got out of hand quickly as the Suns jumped out to a 20-point first quarter lead. McLemore and the Rockets will try to put this one behind them with the Jazz coming to town on Sunday.

Rockets' Ben McLemore: Knocks down four treys
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McLemore put up 14 points (5-10 FG, 4-9 3Pt) to go with four assists, two rebounds and one block in 37 minutes Tuesday in the Rockets' 125-110 win over the Hornets.

With Russell Westbrook (thumb) sitting out, McLemore slotted into the starting backcourt alongside James Harden and acted as little more than a spot-up shooter for most of the night. McLemore at least converted his three-point attempts at a good enough rate to bring value for those that streamed him, but his playing time and usage rate will be capped if Westbrook is cleared to play in the Rockets' next game Thursday versus the Lakers.

Rockets' Ben McLemore: Starting Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McLemore is in the starting lineup for Tuesday's contest against Charlotte, Rick Bonnell of The Charlotte Observer reports.

McLemore will replace the injured Russell Westbrook (thumb) in the starting five Tuesday. Over 17 previous starts this season, McLemore averaged 13.2 points and 2.7 rebounds in 26.9 minutes per game.

Rockets' Ben McLemore: Scores 22 in 24 minutes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McLemore mustered up 22 points (6-12 FG, 4-9 3Pt, 6-8 FT) and two steals in 24 minutes during Sunday's 117-109 win over the Pelicans.

McLemore scored at least 20 for the sixth time through 49 appearances this season, and he has canned at least four treys 14 times as well. McLemore doesn't offer much beyond scoring and threes though, so he's best reserved for use in deeper leagues.

Rockets' Ben McLemore: Leads bench with 13 points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McLemore posted 13 points (5-9 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 0-1 FT), two rebounds and a block in 15 minutes during Friday's 128-121 win over Dallas.

McLemore has been more effective coming off the bench in his last two games, totaling 30 points in just 37 minutes. He is difficult to depend on in fantasy, however, as he's had just one game with at least 10 points over his last six starts.

Rockets' Ben McLemore: To come off bench Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McLemore will come off the bench Wednesday against the Trail Blazers, Alykhan Bijani of The Athletic reports.

McLemore will cede his starting role to Eric Gordon, who's coming off a 50-point eruption in Monday's game against Utah. McLemore, in his own right, has played well this season and is totaling 9.9 points, 2.5 threes and 2.3 rebounds in 23.7 minutes per game.

January 27, 2020 02:08 PM
Rockets' Ben McLemore: Scores 15 points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McLemore scored 15 points (6-11 FG, 3-7 3Pt) in 22 minutes during Sunday's 117-110 loss at Denver.

Most of McLemore's value lies in his scoring totals, so this performance could be a positive sign moving forward, as he left behind a streak of four games in which he couldn't reach double digits. McLemore, along with the likes of Austin Rivers and Eric Gordon, could be in line for an expanded role Monday at Utah, considering James Harden (thigh) is doubtful and Russell Westbrook (rest) has been ruled out.

January 16, 2020 08:00 AM
Rockets' Ben McLemore: Commits to outside scoring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McLemore logged 17 points (6-15 FG, 5-13 3Pt), two rebounds, a steal and a block in Wednesday's 117-107 defeat to Portland.

McLemore benefited from double-teams to star teammate James Harden, as he was a frequent recipient of open looks from beyond the arc. The 26-year-old has now started in three straight games for the Rockets, averaging 14.7 points under 48.6 percent from the field during that span.

Rockets' Ben McLemore: Solid in start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McLemore totaled 14 points (5-12 FG, 4-10 3Pt), three rebounds and two steals across 38 minutes Tuesday night during the Rockets' 121-110 loss to the Grizzlies.

McLemore continued starting over Danuel House, and was again the superior contributor as House (1-3 FG) was quiet. The backcourt in Houston is fluid, with Eric Gordon recently returning from injury and Russell Westbrook's rest schedule, but McLemore is a streaming candidate on nights when the latter sits. He is averaging over 13 points per game in his previous four.
