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

Gilgeous-Alexander (hip) is off the injury report for Wednesday's game against the Jazz.

A bruised right hip kept Gilgeous-Alexander out of the Thunder's most recent contest, but he'll be back in action Wednesday. Since the All-Star break, he's averaging 18.1 points, 6.3 rebounds, 3.9 assists and 1.1 blocks in 32.6 minutes.

Thunder's Shai Gilgeous-Alexander: Expects to return Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gilgeous-Alexander (hip) "should be available to play" Wednesday against the Jazz, per coach Billy Donovan, Maddie Lee of The Oklahoman reports.

The guard will be evaluated later on Tuesday, as well as on Wednesday morning, before a decision is made, but he's trending in the right direction after sitting out Sunday's come-from-behind win over Boston. Since the All-Star break, Gilgeous-Alexander has averaged 18.1 points, 6.3 rebounds, 3.9 assists and 1.1 blocks per game.

Thunder's Shai Gilgeous-Alexander: Not playing Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Thunder ruled Gilgeous-Alexander (hip) out ahead of Sunday's game against the Celtics, Joe Mussatto of The Oklahoman reports.

Gilgeous-Alexander's status took a turn for the worse quickly. After not being included on any of the first four injury reports the Thunder released prior to Sunday's game, Gilgeous-Alexander was deemed questionable with the right hip contusion around 3:30 p.m. ET, then ruled out less than a half hour later. With the 21-year-old now set to miss his first game of the season, Dennis Schroder could be in store for an elevated usage alongside starting point guard Chris Paul.

Thunder's Shai Gilgeous-Alexander: Tending to hip issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gilgeous-Alexander is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Celtics with a right hip contusion, Erik Horne of The Athletic reports. Coach Billy Donovan labeled the second-year guard a game-time decision in advance of the 6 p.m. ET tipoff.

No prior reports had suggested that Gilgeous-Alexander picked up any sort of injury coming out of his 18-point, five-assist outing in Friday's 126-103 win over the Knicks, so his late addition to the injury report comes as a surprise. The Thunder should provide a firmer resolution on Gilgeous-Alexander's status no later than 5:30 p.m., when the team releases its updated injury report a half hour prior to tipoff.

Thunder's Shai Gilgeous-Alexander: Scores 27 extremely efficiently
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gilgeous-Alexander registered 27 points (12-15 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 1-1 FT), three assists, two rebounds, two steals and two blocks in 35 minutes during Wednesday's 114-107 win over the Pistons.

Gilgeous-Alexander contributed across every category and was incredibly efficient offensively. He scored more in this one than he did in the last two tilts combined (26), but Gilgeous-Alexander has still posted at least 20 points in four of his last six appearances. Friday's bout versus the Knicks represents another excellent opportunity for the 21-year-old sophomore to fill up the stat sheet.

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

Gilgeous-Alexander scored 11 points (5-12 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 0-1 FT), while tacking on three rebounds and two assists in 27 minutes during the Thunder's 133-86 loss to Milwaukee on Friday.

Gilgeous-Alexander drained a three for the first bucket of the night, but that was about as good as things looked for Oklahoma City in the lopsided defeat. The Thunder were facing their largest deficit of the season throughout the second half. Gilgeous-Alexander's streak of 20-point games ended at three. A revenge game (Clippers) awaits Gilgeous-Alexander on Tuesday --- something that is always an eye-catching fantasy premise.

Thunder's Shai Gilgeous-Alexander: Double-doubles in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gilgeous-Alexander totaled 21 points (5-11 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 9-12 FT), 11 rebounds, three assists, two blocks and one steal in 33 minutes during Tuesday's win over the Bulls.

Gilgeous-Alexander continued his strong season, notching his 10th double-double. While he's a good passer, the second-year guard stands out for his ability to grab rebounds out of the backcourt. Among guards, he sits seventh overall in that category with his season-long mark of 6.3 boards per game. In addition, he's offering 19.4 points, 3.3 assists, 1.2 threes and 1.1 steals in 35.5 minutes per contest.

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

Gilgeous-Alexander posted 22 points (8-14 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 5-5 FT), 13 rebounds and four assists in 32 minutes during Sunday's 131-103 win over the Spurs.

The second-year guard out of Kentucky notched his second double-double in February; both have come from double-digit points and rebounds. Entrenched as one of the Thunder's top scoring threats, Gilgeous-Alexander is also an excellent rebounder for the position. He's averaging 6.9 boards per game in seven February contests.

Thunder's Shai Gilgeous-Alexander: Shines in Rising Stars loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gilgeous-Alexander had 16 points (7-15 FG, 1-7 3Pt, 1-2 FT), three rebounds, three assists and one block in 24 minutes during Friday's Team World loss to Team USA in the Rising Stars Challenge.

Gilgeous-Alexander laid on a couple of impressive moves during the loss, contributing to what was a productive night. The Thunder have been one of the more surprising teams this season and much of their success can be attributed to the play of Gilgeous-Alexander. He has been a top-50 player thus far and playing alongside Chris Paul has certainly been a blessing in disguise for the sophomore. The fact the Thunder are going to be pushing for a playoff seeding should affirm our faith in Gilgeous-Alexander and he could be a fringe third-round player the rest of the way.

Thunder's Shai Gilgeous-Alexander: Scores 17, adds seven dimes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gilgeous-Alexander put up 17 points (6-13 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 3-4 FT), seven assists, three rebounds and one steal in 37 minutes during Thursday's 123-118 victory over the Pelicans.

After tallying at least one blocked shot in nine-straight contests, Gilgeous-Alexander has now failed to swat one in each of his last three outings. He did, however, make some very clutch plays in this game to stave off a Pelicans comeback. The 21-year old is having a breakout fantasy campaign, posting 19.5 points, 6.1 rebounds, 3.2 assists, 1.2 steals and 0.7 blocks per game on his way to strong, mid-round fantasy value. The Thunder may not have traded Chris Paul during the trade deadline, but it's been the SGA show in Oklahoma City nonetheless, as the second-year guard is looking like one of the cornerstones of this team's future.

Thunder's Shai Gilgeous-Alexander: Scores 17 points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gilgeous-Alexander notched 17 points (6-11 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 3-4 FT), five rebounds, two assists and one steal in 33 minutes during Tuesday's 114-106 loss against the Spurs.

Gilgeous-Alexander had scored 20 or more points in his previous three outings, but it's worth noting he has reached that 20-point plateau just four times in his last 10 contests. He is firmly entrenched as one of the Thunder's main scoring threats while averaging 21.3 points per game in four February contests so far.

Thunder's Shai Gilgeous-Alexander: Team-high 24 against Boston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gilgeous-Alexander scored 24 points (8-12 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 5-7 FT) while adding six rebounds and four assists in 33 minutes during Sunday's 112-111 loss to the Celtics.

The second-year guard tied Danilo Gallinari for the team lead in scoring on the afternoon, the third straight game in which SGA has hit for 20 or more points. His block streak did get snapped at nine games, but Gilgeous-Alexander has still been an across-the-board fantasy contributor in 2020, averaging 19.3 points, 7.8 boards, 3.7 assists, 1.2 steals, 1.2 blocks and 1.1 threes over his last 20 games.

Thunder's Shai Gilgeous-Alexander: Goes for 21 points in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gilgeous-Alexander posted 21 points (7-13 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 6-9 FT), two rebounds, two blocks and one assist in 36 minutes during Friday's 108-101 win over the Pistons.

Scoring in double figures has become a trend for Gilgeous-Alexander, who should be one of the top candidates to win the Most Improved Player Award of the 2019-20 season, and he has topped the 15-point mark in four of his last five games. The Thunder kept its core intact for the stretch run, and the former Clippers guard should remain one of the team's most important players on offense moving forward.

Thunder's Shai Gilgeous-Alexander: Posts 23 points, 10 boards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gilgeous-Alexander generated 23 points (9-17 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 3-4 FT), 10 rebounds, three assists, two steals and two blocks in 39 minutes during Wednesday's 109-103 win over the Cavaliers.

Gilgeous-Alexander contributed across every category and posted his seventh double-double through 51 appearances. He has slowly but surely raised his assist average to the point where it's nearly identical to what he was providing last year, and Gilgeous-Alexander has more than doubled his rebounding average while nearly doubling his scoring average compared to his rookie year. The sophomore is already one of the more well-rounded players in the league and seems to be getting better with each passing game.

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

Gilgeous-Alexander finished with 17 points (6-13 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 2-3 FT), seven rebounds, seven assists, two blocks and one steal in 39 minutes during Wednesday's 120-100 victory over the Kings.

Gilgeous-Alexander was fantastic once again Wednesday, continuing to shine in what has been a tremendous sophomore season. He has been a second-round player over the past month and has the Thunder inside the Western Conference playoff race. Despite lacking a reliable three-point shot, Gilgeous-Alexander has the ability to contribute across the board, in particular on the defensive end of the floor. He has certainly been an amazing addition for the Thunder and his fantasy ceiling appears uncapped at this point.

Thunder's Shai Gilgeous-Alexander: Struggles with shot in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gilgeous-Alexander had 11 points (3-14 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 5-6 FT), seven rebounds, two assists, two blocks and one steal in 34 minutes during Saturday's 113-104 win over the Timberwolves.

Gilgeous-Alexander has been on a tear ove the last two weeks leading up to this game, posting 20.0 points, 9.3 boards, 4.6 dimes, 1.5 steals and 1.3 blocks per game, while shooting 52.4 percent from the field, and 86.0 percent from the line on his way to first-round fantasy value in nine-category leagues over that span. That's not a typo.The 21-year old's shooting percentages, and exhaustive effort on the court, have rocketed his value upward. With the Thunder currently holding the Western Conference's seventh seed, the team will likely be doing everything they can to make their playoff appearance, and Gilgeous-Alexander has been contributing mightily to that cause recently.

Thunder's Shai Gilgeous-Alexander: Swats three shots
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gilgeous-Alexander had 24 points (7-16 FG, 0-2 3PT, 10-13 FT), six assists, three rebounds, three blocks and one steal in 37 minutes during Friday's 140-111 win over the Hawks.

Gilgeous-Alexander continues to make a strong case to be named the Most Improved Player this season, and he has shown a marked improvement on his defensive numbers this month -- over his last five games, he is averaging 8.0 rebounds and 1.4 blocks to go along with 19.0 points per contest. The second-year guard will be one of the Thunder's top scoring threats ahead of Saturday's matchup at Minnesota.

Thunder's Shai Gilgeous-Alexander: Posts double-double
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gilgeous-Alexander recorded 22 points (9-17 FG, 0-4 3PT, 4-6 FT), 10 rebounds and five assists in 35 minutes during Saturday's 119-106 win over the Trail Blazers.

The second-year guard has scored at least 20 points in six of the Thunder's last seven games, entrenching himself as Oklahoma City's main scoring threat in the process. A candidate for the NBA's Most Improved Player award, Gilgeous-Alexander has nearly doubled up his 2018-19 averages in points (20.0 from 10.8), rebounds (5.8 from 2.8) and three-pointers (1.2 from 0.6) per game.

Thunder's Shai Gilgeous-Alexander: Scores 18 with eight assists
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gilgeous-Alexander posted 18 points (5-13 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 6-6 FT), eight assists, five rebounds and one steal in a loss to the Heat on Friday.

Not a single Thunder player broke double-digit scoring by halftime in this game, but Gilgeous-Alexander was tied with Danilo Gallinari for the most with nine points. Over his last two outings prior to this one, Gilgeous-Alexander was posting 20.5 points, 13.0 boards, 8.0 assists, 2.0 threes, 1.5 steals and 1.0 blocks per game, while shooting 63.4 percent from the field, and going 9-of-9 from the line in that span. While those numbers are certainly buoyed by his 20-20-10 outing against the Timberwolves on Jan. 13, the 21-year old has really kicked things into gear after his relatively slower start to the season. He's producing top 30 value over the last couple of weeks, and even better over the last four games.

Thunder's Shai Gilgeous-Alexander: Fills stat sheet in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gilgeous-Alexander had 21 points (6-10 FG, 2-2 3PT, 7-7 FT), six rebounds, six assists, three steals and one block in 38 minutes during Wednesday's 130-121 loss against the Raptors.

Understandably, Gilgeous-Alexander couldn't repeat his historic triple-double from the previous game although he still delivered another strong performance on both ends of the court. He has scored 20 or more points in each of his last five games, and he has settled himself as the Thunder's most valuable fantasy asset due to his ability to impact the game on a consistent basis on both ends of the court. He will aim to extend his sizzling run of play Friday at home against the Heat.
