Thunder's Luguentz Dort: Carries offense in Game 7 loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dort tallied 30 points (10-21 FG, 6-12 3Pt, 4-6 FT), four rebounds, one assist and one block in 35 minutes during Wednesday's 104-102 loss to the Rockets.

Dort exploded for a career-high scoring total, shocking the world with his offensive exploits. Prior to Wednesday's performance, Dort had scored in double digits only seven times this season. Not only was Dort dominant on the offensive end, but he also limited James Harden to just 18 points on 4-of-15 shooting. While this is a clear outlier for Dort, it does demonstrate his ability to get hot at times. His defensive prowess is likely to keep him on the floor next season, and fantasy managers will want to remember this high-octane offensive performance come draft time.

Thunder's Luguentz Dort: Logs 25 minutes as starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dort (knee) put up eight points (3-10 FG, 2-8 3Pt), two rebounds and a block in 25 minutes during Thursday's 111-98 Game 2 loss to the Rockets.

Dort (knee) missed his first several shot attempts before eventually making a few in the second half. He had been ruled out earlier in the day prior to being upgraded to questionable, then was ultimately cleared to play. Dort's defense was stellar, as he contained Houston's James Harden and kept him from single-handedly taking over. Nevertheless, Dort's defensive ability doesn't often translate into copious counting stats, so those in daily fantasy leagues should view him as a dart throw at best.

Thunder's Luguentz Dort: Starting in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dort (knee) is in the starting lineup for Thursday's Game 2 against the Rockets, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Surprisingly cleared to play, Dort will presumably be asked to guard James Harden. Thursday will mark Dort's 29th straight start; across that stretch, he's averaged 7.6 points, 2.5 rebounds and 1.0 steals in 24.5 minutes.

Thunder's Luguentz Dort: Cleared for Game 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dort (knee) will play in Thursday's Game 2 against the Rockets, Michael C. Wright of ESPN.com reports.

After originally being ruled out and then upgraded to questionable, Dort has been cleared to play. He may be asked to be the primary defender on James Harden, as Dort is one of the strongest wing players OKC has available.

Thunder's Luguentz Dort: Upgraded to questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dort (knee) has been upgraded to questionable ahead of Thursday's game against the Rockets.

Dort was previously listed as out, so his upgraded status comes as a surprise. His presence would be welcomed by the Thunder, who struggled to contain James Harden during Game 1; Dort is a rare player with the physical tools to bother the former MVP.

Thunder's Luguentz Dort: Listed out for Game 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dort (knee) is listed as out for Thursday's Game 2 against Houston.

There was some hope that Dort would be able to return from a sprained knee Thursday, but the rookie will miss a second straight game to begin the series. Dort is not a major fantasy contributor, but when he returns he'll likely be tasked with serving as the primary defender on James Harden.

Thunder's Luguentz Dort: Officially out for Game 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dort (knee) will not play in Tuesday's Game 1 against Houston.

As expected, Dort will miss at least the series opener as he battles a sprained right knee. The rookie, who's started every game for the Thunder since Jan. 20, is not a major factor on the offensive end, but his loss will be felt on defense, as Dort will likely match up against James Harden when he returns to action.

Thunder's Luguentz Dort: Expected to miss Game 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dort (knee) is not expected to play in Tuesday's Game 1 against Houston, Royce Young of ESPN reports.

He hasn't been completely ruled out, but Dort's knee sprain is expected to keep him out of at least the series opener. On a more positive note, coach Billy Donovan said that Dort has been progressing in recent days, so there's hope that he could return as soon as Thursday's Game 2. Once he's healthy, Dort figures to draw the unenviable assignment of defending James Harden.

Thunder's Luguentz Dort: Out Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dort (knee) will not play in Friday's game against the Clippers, Steve McGehee of KWTV in Oklahoma City reports.

Dort exited Wednesday's game against Miami with a sprained right knee, and it'll keep the young wing out of action in the Thunder's seeding-game finale. Consider Dort day-to-day as the start of the playoffs approaches.

Thunder's Luguentz Dort: Out with knee injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dort won't return to Wednesday's game against the Heat due to a right knee injury, Joe Mussatto of The Oklahoman reports.

The 21-year-old sustained the injury during the first half in a collision with Jae Crowder. Dort had two points (0-1 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and one rebound in eight minutes before exiting, and he should be considered questionable for Friday's final seeding game against the Clippers until his status is updated.

Thunder's Luguentz Dort: Contributes with 16 points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dort posted 16 points (6-9 FG, 4-5 3Pt, 0-2 FT), three rebounds, two assists and one steal in 30 minutes during Friday's 121-92 loss to the Grizzlies.

Friday's performance was Dort's second-highest scoring outing of the season and his second-most made threes of the season. His previous highs were set in the same game, Jan. 29 against the Kings, where Dort popped for 23 points on four three-pointers, two rebounds, one steal and one block in 27 minutes. While Dort's role isn't that of a scorer, he's totaled a solid 40 points across the past three games.

Thunder's Luguentz Dort: Shines in expanded role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dort produced 14 points (4-11 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 6-6 FT), four rebounds and a steak across 31 minutes in Friday's 105-86 win over the Lakers in Orlando.

With Dennis Schroder (personal) absent, an increased role was expected for Dort, but Hamidou Diallo was also in consideration for more minutes. The rookie out of Arizona State kept Diallo off the floor, and also decreased Shai-Gilgeous Alexander's role somewhat. The Thunder played at a different speed when Dort was in the lineup, and his tremendous hustle and defensive skills were apparent to anyone watching the game. Shooting is still his weakness, and if he hopes to carve a more significant role, he needs to sort that issue out. Still, the guard has enormous potential and should see a similar workload until Schroder returns.

Thunder's Luguentz Dort: Makes three triples
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dort went for 13 points (4-7 FG, 3-5 3Pt), three assists, two steals and one rebound in 23 minutes during Tuesday's 131-120 scrimmage win over the Blazers.

Dort earned a spot in the starting lineup as the year progressed, and he will remain in that role once the regular season resumes. Dort has appeared in 29 games with the team this season, averaging 6.2 points and 1.9 rebounds in 22.2 minutes.

Thunder's Luguentz Dort: Scores 13 efficiently
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dort posted 13 points (4-7 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 3-3 FT), two rebounds and one block in 21 minutes during Sunday's 102-97 scrimmage win over the 76ers.

Dort was excellent defensively while making an impact offensively, as well. He's generally not the most fantasy-friendly player, but Dort's defense keeps him on the floor and has helped him earn a spot in the starting five.

Thunder's Luguentz Dort: Signs multi-year deal with OKC
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dort has signed a multi-year contract with the Thunder, Mark Stein of The New York Times reports.

Dort was previously on a two-way contract, and the Thunder have opted to bring him on with a full deal. He's appeared in 29 games with the team, averaging 6.2 points and 1.9 rebounds in 22.2 minutes.

Thunder's Luguentz Dort: Struggles again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dort had six points (3-7 FG, 0-3 3Pt) and three rebounds over 25 minutes of action in the Thunder's 133-86 loss to the Bucks on Friday.

Since Dort's 15-point (6-6 FG) outing, he has combined for 12 points in three contests. The rookie from Arizona State attacks the rim with confidence and good strength, but Oklahoma City's push for the five seed isn't the ideal environment to grow. The flashes of talent are merely a mental note at this juncture.

Thunder's Luguentz Dort: Perfect shooting night
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dort put up 15 points (6-6 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT) to go with three steals, two rebounds and two assists across 24 minutes Sunday in a 131-103 victory over the Spurs.

Dort has now reached double figures in scoring in back-to-back contests to go with a combined six steals, but his averages over his 14 games as a starter (7.9 points, 1.2 steals) are probably better indicators of what to expect from him moving forward. The rookie's lack of standout production in any one area limits his fantasy utility, though he's probably done enough at this point to keep himself entrenched atop the depth chart at small forward.

Thunder's Luguentz Dort: Hits double figures
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dort put up 11 points (4-9 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT) to go with three steals, two assists and one rebound across 22 minutes Friday in the Thunder's 113-101 win over the Nuggets.

Dort has maintained his spot in the starting five following Terrance Ferguson's (personal) return to action earlier this month, but the rookie's low usage on offense makes his fantasy appeal minimal. Friday's outing marked the first time in seven games that he reached double figures in scoring.

Thunder's Luguentz Dort: Scores career-high 23 points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dort amassed 23 points (8-12 FG, 5-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), two rebounds, one steal and one block in 27 minutes during Wednesday's 120-100 victory over the Kings.

Dort exploded on what was a career night, demonstrating his ability to convert from downtown. Despite the impressive performance, Dort is not a player to consider adding anywhere outside of deeper formats. This would appear to be somewhat of an outlier based on what we have seen thus far. However, this is the one position the Thunder have had some trouble in filling on a regular basis and perhaps Dort will be able to carve out a decent role moving forward.

Thunder's Luguentz Dort: Hits double figures for first time
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dort produced 10 points (3-5 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), two rebounds, two steals and one assist in 30 minutes Saturday in the Thunder's 113-104 win over the Timberwolves.

Making his fourth straight start while Terrance Ferguson (personal) and Abdel Nader (ankle) were unavailable, Dort set new career high in points and three-point buckets and matched his previous best in steals. Dort should continue to see steady playing time as long as Ferguson and Nader are out, but as Saturday's stat line suggests, the rookie's upside is fairly low.
