Grant was traded to the Nuggets on Monday in exchange for a 2020 first-round pick, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
The Thunder continue to move in a new direction following the Paul George trade to the Clippers, as the move not only gives them yet another first-round pick, but it also saxes them a ton of money in tax penalties. In Denver, Grant will likely see a slightly reduced role with the presence of Paul Millsap, but he gives the Nuggets a legitimate backup and reliable insurance at the power forward position. Grant is coming off a career-best season in 2018-19, where he averaged 13.6 points while shooting 39.2 percent from behind the arc.
Grant registered 16 points (7-8 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 0-1 FT), eight rebounds, one assist and three blocks across 44 minutes during the Thunder's 118-115 loss to the Trail Blazers in Game 5 of their Western Conference first-round playoff series Tuesday.
Grant played the second-most minutes on the Thunder behind Russell Westbrook and parlayed them into another strong performance. The fifth-year big generated three straight double-digit scoring efforts to close out the series and averaged a solid 11.6 points and 5.6 rebounds overall across the five games. Those figures came in the wake of a regular season in which he posted career bests in multiple categories, and he'll look to build on those numbers during the 2019-20 campaign.
Grant contributed 18 points (6-7 FG, 4-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT), two rebounds, one assist and two blocks across 33 minutes during the Thunder's 120-108 win over the Trail Blazers in Game 3 of their Western Conference first-round playoff series Friday.
Grant was a significant offensive component for the Thunder in their first win of the series, putting together a performance reminiscent of many he generated during a breakout regular season. It was the first double-digit scoring effort of the series for Grant, who'd only averaged 6.5 points through the first two games. Improved efficiency made all the difference Friday, as Grant's 85.7 percent success rate from the floor was a stark departure from his 3-for-15 showing in Games 1 and 2.
Grant chipped in eight points (2-8 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 4-4 FT), five rebounds, four blocks, and one steal in 35 minutes during Sunday's 104-99 Game 1 loss to the Trail Blazers.
Grant struggled offensively but made his presence felt on the defensive end. Given the team's lack of depth along the wing, Grant is likely to continue earning heavy minutes throughout the course of the playoffs.
Grant scored a season-high 28 points (11-20 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 2-2 FT) while adding five rebounds and an assist in 43 minutes during Wednesday's 127-116 win over the Bucks.
With Paul George (shoulder) sidelined for the regular-season finale, Grant took full advantage of the extra shots available. The 25-year-old heads into the playoffs with some momentum, scoring in double digits in eight straight contests, but he'll be firmly in a supporting role as Russell Westbrook and James Harden do battle in a first-round clash between the Thunder and Rockets.
Grant tallied 15 points (5-7 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 3-4 FT), five rebounds and two blocks over 30 minutes Sunday against the Timberwolves.
Grant put together an efficient shooting line and swatted two shots on the way to a winning effort. He's finished in double figures in the scoring column in five straight matchups and has also snagged five or more boards in three of those contests. Grant and the Thunder will face two dangerous opponents in the final two regular-season games of the season, although either team may elect to rest some of their usual starters in an effort to being the playoffs well rested.
Grant registered 22 points (8-15 FG, 4-10 3Pt, 2-3 FT), five rebounds, one assist, and one steal in 35 minutes during Tuesday's 119-103 win over the Lakers.
Grant has gone for at least 20 points twice over the last eight tilts while draining at least four treys in three of the last six. His offensive game, most notably from beyond the arc, has improved by leaps and bounds this season, and he was always just a jump shot away from being a quality two-way player. Expect him to remain highly involved down the stretch while the Thunder jostle for playoff positioning.
Grant finished with 27 points (10-16 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 6-7 FT), 10 rebounds, three blocks and an assist over 41 minutes in the Thunder's loss to the Heat on Monday.
Grant went off for a season-high 27 points in Monday's loss, adding 10 rebounds for a big double-double. It was just his fourth double-double this season, but Grant is still averaging career highs in points (13.1) and rebounds (5.1) this season.
Grant managed 13 points (3-11 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 7-8 FT), seven rebounds, five assists and one block across 37 minutes in the Thunder's 99-95 win over the Grizzlies on Sunday.
Grant still managed a serviceable final line, but a second straight sub-par shooting performance prevented his night from being even bigger. Grant has now shot just 32.0 percent over his first two games of March, including 20.0 percent on 10 attempts from three-point range. The 24-year-old is still steady as ever on the boards, however, and Sunday's assist tally was actually a season-high figure. Grant will look to get back on track offensively in a favorable positional matchup versus the Timberwolves on Tuesday.
Grant finished with 23 points (10-17 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 1-2 FT), four rebounds and a steal over 27 minutes in the Thunder's loss to the 76ers on Thursday.
Grant tied Russell Westbrook for the team lead in scoring in this one, hitting two threes and draining over 50.0 percent of his shots from the floor. Already experiencing a career year, Grant has stepped up his production even more over the last three games, averaging 15.7 points, 5.7 rebounds and 1.7 blocks.
Grant ended with 23 points (9-12 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 1-1 FT), five rebounds, three assists, and two blocks in 34 minutes during Tuesday's 121-112 loss to the Nuggets.
Grant put up his highest points total in almost six weeks Tuesday, coming away with 23 points on an efficient 9-of-12 shooting. He added a pair of blocked shots, adding to his already impressive resume from this season. He has been a real breakout thus far and is a big part of why the Thunder have been so successful. The addition of Markieff Morris does not appear to have impacted Grant's playing time and he should continue to be a steady top-60 player moving forward.
Grant (ankle) furnished 18 points (6-10 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 3-3 FT), four rebounds, one assist, three blocks and two steals across 41 minutes in the Thunder's 148-147 double overtime win over the Jazz on Friday.
One of Grant's three blocks on the night was especially valuable, as it came on a Donovan Mitchell attempt at the end of regulation that could have sealed the win for the Jazz. Grant's well-rounded line was just the latest in a career-best season, as the 24-year-old has emerged as a highly dependable source of complementary production alongside the superstar duo of Paul George and Russell Westbrook. Factoring in Friday's contest, Grant is averaging career highs in points (13.2) and rebounds (5.1), supplementing those figures with an impressive 1.4 blocks per contest.
Grant (ankle) participated in practice Thursday, Brett Dawson of The Athletic reports.
Grant has missed the Thunder's past two games due to a sprained right ankle, but it appears he's close to fully recovered. Expect Grant to return to action Friday night against the Jazz, when new addition Markieff Morris could make his Thunder debut.
Grant (ankle) is listed as out for Thursday's game against the Pelicans, Brett Dawson of The Athletic reports.
This comes as no surprise, as Grant was expected to miss the remainder of the games up until the All-Star break. Following Thursday's game, Grant will have a week to rest the ankle and get closer to one hundred percent, and should be considered questionable for next Friday's contest against the Jazz.
Grant (ankle) is not expected to be available for Thursday's matchup against the Pelicans, Brett Dawson of The Athletic reports.
A right ankle sprain will probably keep Grant out through the All-Star break. As a result, Patrick Patterson is a strong candidate to make a second straight start.
Grant is listed as out for Monday's game against the Trail Blazers due to a sprained right ankle.
Grant came down awkwardly on his ankle late in Saturday night's win over the Rockets and it appears to be serious enough to cost him at least one game. The Thunder are already a team light on quality frontcourt depth, and his absence will likely result in extended minutes for both Abdel Nader and Patrick Patterson.
Grant had 20 points (8-11 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 1-2 FT), three rebounds, and one block in 30 minutes during Thursday's 117-95 win over the Grizzlies.
Grant was extremely efficient as a scorer, finishing with 20-plus points for the sixth time through 54 appearances this season. He typically provides a bit more production in the other categories, but Grant did match his season high in made threes and continues to impress more often than not as the starting power forward.
Grant ended with 19 points (7-9 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 4-7 FT), 11 rebounds, one steal, and one block in 35 minutes during Tuesday's 132-122 victory over Orlando.
Grant produced just his third double-double of the season Tuesday, helping the Thunder overcome an early deficit to run out 10 point victors. Grant has certainly been the unsung hero for the Thunder this season and is putting up career-high numbers in multiple categories. He is the 63rd ranked player for the season and chances are you were able to draft him in the later rounds of your draft.
Grant provided 15 points (5-8 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 3-5 FT), three rebounds, one block and one steal across 33 minutes Sunday in the Thunder's 134-129 loss to the Celtics.
While the Thunder's offensive usage remains heavily concentrated between All-Stars Paul George and Russell Westbrook for the second straight season, there's been enough volume to go around for Grant to become an effective complementary piece. Grant has now reached double figures in the scoring column in 11 of his past 12 outings, averaging 15.0 points on 48.9 percent shooting from the field. Thanks to his solid efficiency and improved output from distance in addition to his strong numbers on the defensive end, Grant has established himself as a must-roster option in 12-team leagues at this point.
Grant totaled 16 points (5-10 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 5-8 FT), five blocks, four assists and two rebounds across 33 minutes in the Thunder's win over the Bucks on Sunday.
Grant scored in double digits for the ninth time in a row and although his rebounding haul was unusually low, he bolstered his performance with season highs in blocks and assists. He's averaging career highs in minutes (32.0), points (12.8) and rebounds (5.0) this season, and his solid contributions have made him an undervalued play in daily formats.
