Thunder's Shai Gilgeous-Alexander: Drops career-high 42 points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gilgeous-Alexander recorded 42 points (13-20 FG, 6-11 3Pt, 10-11 FT), eight rebounds, four assists and a block across 38 minutes in Wednesday's 102-99 win over the Spurs.

Gilgeous-Alexander pulverized his previous career-high scoring mark -- 33 points against the Bulls on Jan. 15 -- and looked absolutely dominant on the offensive end of the court, as he accounted for more than 40 percent of the Thunder's total scoring output. The combo guard is firmly entrenched as Oklahoma City's main scoring threat and has tallied 20 or more points in six of his last seven appearances, including surpassing 25 in each of his last three contests.

Thunder's Shai Gilgeous-Alexander: Leads team with 27 points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gilgeous-Alexander generated 27 points (10-15 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 5-6 FT), five assists, two rebounds, a steal and a blocked shot across 35 minutes in Monday's 108-94 loss to the Heat.

Gilgeous-Alexander logged a full night in the back-to-back and followed up his 31-point showing Sunday with another excellent stat line. Unfortunately, he isn't getting enough support from his supporting cast to win consistently. Despite the team's deficiencies, SGA remains an excellent fantasy target due to his superlative usage and production.

Thunder's Shai Gilgeous-Alexander: Drops 31 points Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gilgeous-Alexander posted 31 points (9-15 FG, 3-3 3Pt, 10-12 FT), nine assists, four rebounds and one steal over 36 minutes in Sunday's 117-101 win over Cleveland.

Gilgeous-Alexander has had plenty of playing time since returning from a knee injury, and he nearly recorded his third double-double of the season Sunday. He led the Thunder in scoring and assists during the comfortable victory over the Cavaliers. The 22-year-old is now averaging 22.3 points and 6.7 assists over 35.0 minutes per game across the past three matchups.

Thunder's Shai Gilgeous-Alexander: Delivers quality line in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gilgeous-Alexander (knee) finished with 22 points (6-14 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 8-8 FT), six assists and three rebounds across 33 minutes Wednesday in the Thunder's 122-113 loss to the Grizzlies.

Gilgeous-Alexander had missed the Thunder's previous four games with a sprained left knee, a longer absence than anticipated based on the initial reports about his injury that surfaced last week. He was at least able to return to action Wednesday with no limitations, as he handled a normal minutes load and turned in a rather typical stat line. Fantasy managers that patiently awaited his return can feel comfortable with activating him.

Thunder's Shai Gilgeous-Alexander: Returning Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gilgeous-Alexander (knee) will play Wednesday against the Grizzlies, Joe Mussatto of The Oklahoman reports.

After missing four straight games due to a sprained left knee, Gilgeous-Alexander will return to the lineup Wednesday. His return will likely mean fewer minutes for Kenrich Williams and Justin Jackson.

Thunder's Shai Gilgeous-Alexander: Remains out Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gilgeous-Alexander (knee) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against Portland, Rylan Stiles of BricktownBuckets.com reports.

The 22-year-old will miss a fourth consecutive game as he recovers from a sprained left knee. According to Joe Mussatto of The Oklahoman, head coach Mark Daigneault said Gilgeous-Alexander is "really close" to a return, so the combo guard should have a decent shot at playing in OKC's second game of the week Wednesday in Memphis.

Thunder's Shai Gilgeous-Alexander: Out again Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gilgeous-Alexander (knee) is out Sunday against the Bucks.

Gilgeous-Alexander will be sidelined for a third straight game Sunday as he recovers from a sprained left knee. Hamidou Diallo will likely start at point guard again, as Theo Maledon (COVID-19 protocols) is out as well.

Thunder's Shai Gilgeous-Alexander: Won't return Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gilgeous-Alexander (knee) is listed as out for Friday's game against the Nuggets, Rylan Stiles of BricktownBuckets.com reports.

Gilgeous-Alexander will be forced to miss a second consecutive game due to a left knee sprain. With George Hill (thumb) and Theo Maledon (COVID-19 protocols) also both still sidelined, Hamidou Diallo and Luguentz Dort once again look primed for large workloads. Both Diallo and Luguentz played 38 or more minutes during Wednesday's overtime loss to the Lakers.

Thunder's Shai Gilgeous-Alexander: Out Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gilgeous-Alexander (knee) won't play Wednesday against the Lakers.

Gilgeous-Alexander continues to deal with pain stemming from a sprained left knee, and he'll sit out Wednesday after appearing in each of the past two games. In his absence, Hamidou Diallo and Luguentz Dort should see plenty of action in the backcourt, especially with George Hill (thumb) and Theo Maledon (COVID-19 protocols) still sidelined.

Thunder's Shai Gilgeous-Alexander: Sniffs triple-double in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gilgeous-Alexander racked up 29 points (10-25 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 5-5 FT), 10 assists, seven rebounds and a block across 42 minutes in Monday's 119-112 overtime loss against the Lakers.

Gilgeous-Alexander has scored at least 20 points in all but six games this season, but he has surpassed the 25-point mark five times as well. The speedy point guard also has three double-doubles this season and all have come during the current calendar year.

Thunder's Shai Gilgeous-Alexander: Scores 31 points in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gilgeous-Alexander (knee) tallied 31 points (12-22 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 5-6 FT), nine rebounds, seven assists and a steal across 34 minutes in Saturday's 120-118 win over the Timberwolves.

The Thunder were down Al Horford (rest) and Isaiah Roby (foot) for the second half of a back-to-back set, but the returns of Gilgeous-Alexander and Luguentz Dort (knee) gave the Thunder enough players for the game to be played. Not only did Gilgeous-Alexander take back a normal minutes load in his return, but he was also able to churn out his best scoring total in three weeks. Fantasy managers who were sweating Gilgeous-Alexander's availability ahead of a four-game week can activate him with confidence.

Thunder's Shai Gilgeous-Alexander: Off injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gilgeous-Alexander (knee) is off the injury report for Saturday's game against the Timberwolves.

After missing two games with a sprained left knee, Gilgeous-Alexander will be back in action Saturday. Across his past five appearances, he's averaging 22.2 points, 6.2 assists, 5.6 rebounds and 1.4 blocks in 32.0 minutes.

Thunder's Shai Gilgeous-Alexander: Ruled out Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gilgeous-Alexander (knee) will not play Friday against Minnesota, Joe Mussatto of The Oklahoman reports.

Gilgeous-Alexander will miss his second game in a row due to a left knee sprain he suffered during a loss Monday. It's possible that the team is playing it safe considering the upcoming back-to-back games Friday and Saturday. With the young guard sidelined, Theo Maledon could be in line for a pretty large workload after he played 36 minutes in Wednesday's win.

Thunder's Shai Gilgeous-Alexander: Sitting out with knee sprain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gilgeous-Alexander won't play Wednesday against the Rockets due to a left knee sprain.

The 22-year-old apparently picked up the injury during Monday's loss to Houston, when he had 19 points (8-15 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 1-2 FT), five assists, two rebounds, two blocked shots and a steal across 29 minutes. The severity of the injury remains unclear, but Gilgeous-Alexander will be sidelined for at least one game. George Hill (thumb) is also unavailable, so Theo Maledon, Hamidou Diallo and Luguentz Dort are slated to handle the backcourt work for the Thunder.

Thunder's Shai Gilgeous-Alexander: Modest night in blowout loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gilgeous-Alexander tallied 19 points (8-15 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 1-2 FT), five assists, two rebounds, two blocked shots and a steal across 29 minutes in Monday's 136-106 loss to the Rockets.

With the game well in hand for the Rockets, Gilgeous-Alexander logged only 29 minutes due to the first unit exiting the game. The Rockets could have beaten any team in the league Monday with their relentless three-point barrage, but the Thunder's inability to score against one of the league's worst defenses was readily apparent. Because Gilgeous-Alexander is the only true elite in the lineup, his numbers aren't in danger, but he faces an uphill battle if the rest of the team continues to struggle offensively.

Thunder's Shai Gilgeous-Alexander: Efficient shooting performance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gilgeous-Alexander scored 24 points (7-10 FG, 0-1 3PT, 10-13 FT) to go along with four rebounds, five assists and one block across 31 minutes in Friday's loss to the Nets.

Gilgeous-Alexander got to the free-throw line for a season-high 13 attempts, which accounted for nearly half of his points. It was a relative downturn in performance elsewhere in the box score, as it was his lowest assist total in his last six games. That indicates just how well Gilgeous-Alexander has been playing, and he's taken a significant step forward in his scoring, assists and field-goal percentage 18 games into his third campaign.

Thunder's Shai Gilgeous-Alexander: Sniffs triple-double in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gilgeous-Alexander chipped in with 21 points (6-18 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 7-9 FT), eight assists, seven rebounds, two steals and two blocks across 31 minutes in Wednesday's 102-97 win over the Suns.

Gilgeous-Alexander struggled with his shot all game long and needed 18 field-goal attempts to end as the Thunder's joint-best scorer with 21 points, but he also found a way to fill the stat sheet while also ending just three boards and two dimes away from what would've been his first triple-double of the season. The third-year floor general is averaging career-high marks in both points and assists this season, and he should remain the Thunder's most reliable fantasy performer on a nightly basis.

Thunder's Shai Gilgeous-Alexander: Efficient from field, distance in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gilgeous-Alexander posted 24 points (8-12 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 5-10 FT), nine rebounds, six assists, two blocks and one steal across 32 minutes Monday in the Thunder's 125-122 win over the Trail Blazers.

A poor showing from the free-throw line hurt Gilgeous-Alexander's overall fantasy value, but considering he shot 79.1 percent from the charity stripe heading into Monday, fantasy managers should just write it off as an off night. More importantly, Gilgeous-Alexander continued to fill it up as a scorer while providing elite efficiency from the field and downtown. Over his last eight games, Gilgeous-Alexander is averaging 24.0 points on 58.6 percent shooting from the field and 46.4 percent shooting from downtown.

Thunder's Shai Gilgeous-Alexander: Delivers 23 points Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gilgeous-Alexander registered 23 points (8-16 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 6-6 FT), six rebounds and seven assists across 37 minutes in Sunday's loss against the Clippers.

Gilgeous-Alexander delivered a strong performance against his former team, and while his efforts weren't enough to carry the Thunder to what would've been an upset win, at least he paced the team in scoring -- something that has been quite common with him so far. Gilgeous-Alexander is the undisputed offensive leader of the Thunder, and his numbers back him up, as he has scored at least 20 points in seven of his last nine games.

Thunder's Shai Gilgeous-Alexander: Puts up 30 points in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gilgeous-Alexander registered 30 points (11-20 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 6-6 FT), three rebounds, eight assists and two steals across 39 minutes in Friday's loss against the Clippers.

Gilgeous-Alexander's role as the Thunder's biggest offensive weapon is not under any question and Friday's game was another prime example of that -- he paced the team in scoring, field goals made, field-goal attempts, free throws made and free-throw attempts. He has also scored 20 or more points in six of his last eight appearances, and he has reached the 30-point plateau thrice during that span as well.
