Brown had 16 points (7-9 FG, 2-3 FT) and seven rebounds in Saturday's loss to the Pacers.
Calling Brown the lone bright spot for the Thunder would be generous, as OKC trailed 82-46 at the half and ultimately fell by a final score of 152 to 95. The UCLA product has been wildly inconsistent of late, though he did come down with 18 boards in 32 minutes against the Pelicans on Thursday. Brown has shown enough this season to prove he has some long-term potential, but it's unclear how favorably the Thunder view him as a future piece.
Brown recorded five points (2-5 FG, 1-2 FT), 18 rebounds, two steals and an assist across 32 minutes in Thursday's 109-95 loss to the Pelicans.
Brown was not very involved offensively, but his 18 rebounds were the UCLA product's second-best total off the glass this season. Shot volume is Brown's biggest threat to his viability as a fantasy option, but his swift adoption to a starting role with the Thunder guarantees a prominent role with the squad in their youth-based rebuild.
Brown scored 12 points (5-8 FG, 2-2 FT) to go along with 11 rebounds, two steals and one assist across 17 minutes in Wednesday's loss to the Pacers.
Brown saw his playing time limited again, as Isaiah Roby got 28 minutes and Tony Bradley saw 15. Because of that, it's difficult to buy into Brown as a consistent fantasy producer, as he had scored zero points with 10 rebounds, one steal and block across his last two games combined entering Wednesday's contest. Overall, Brown remains a solid source of boards and blocks, but his production may suffer with Roby and Bradley also earning minutes in the frontcourt.
Brown managed 18 points (8-13 FG, 2-3 FT), 12 rebounds, two steals and two blocks in Wednesday's loss to the Warriors.
Brown continues to be a double-double machine for the Thunder, as this was the center's ninth such performance since returning to the team following the conclusion of the G League season in early March. In fact, he's averaged a double-double in his 19 games since the All-Star break -- 11.3 points and 11.2 rebounds with 1.3 blocks to boot.
Brown posted 12 points (4-8 FG, 4-4 FT), 15 rebounds, two steals and a block across 26 minutes in Tuesday's loss against the Jazz.
Brown was coming off a poor six-point, six-rebound effort the last time out, but he bounced back here and notched another double-double -- the third one over his last six appearances. The undrafted big man has grabbed double-digit rebounds in 10 of his last 15 contests.
Brown posted six points (3-5 FG) and six rebounds in 19 minutes during Saturday's 117-93 loss to the Thunder.
The 21-year-old's 19 minutes are the lowest he's played since March 11. Brown was outplayed by backup center Tony Bradley Saturday, so fantasy managers should keep an eye on how the Thunder divvy up both players' moving forward. The second-year center's scoring has been all over the map lately, as he's posted tallies of 20, one, 10, 11, five, 13, and six points over his last seven games, respectively. He'll look to bounce back Tuesday on the road against the Jazz.
Brown recorded 13 points (6-10 FG, 1-1 FT), 11 rebounds, a steal and a block across 31 minutes in Thursday's loss against the Cavaliers.
Brown finished the game as the Thunder's third-best scorer while pacing the team in rebounds and posting another double-double -- his third one over his last six appearances. Brown hasn't been as productive -- and dominant -- as he was during a six-game stretch in March in which he averaged 13.7 points and 14.3 rebounds per game, but he remains a nightly double-double threat due to his excellent two-way skill set.
Brown had just five points (2-8 FG, 1-3 FT), 10 rebounds and one block in 27 minutes during Wednesday's 113-102 loss to the Hornets.
The shine has certainly come off Brown over the past few games, something that is certainly not unexpected. After exploding out of the gates, the struggles typically associated with young players have come to fruition. That said, the Thunder are simply looking to develop their youth at this point and so Brown should continue to log heavy minutes moving forward. As long as you can take the good with the bad, he should remain a 12-team option the rest of the way.
Brown delivered 10 points (4-7 FG, 2-4 FT) and 14 rebounds across 23 minutes in Saturday's loss against the Blazers.
The Thunder was brutally outmatched in this 48-point defeat, but Brown still delivered fantasy value with his fourth double-double over his last six games. He was coming off a one-point, seven-rebound performance in the previous contest, but the big man once again proved he can produce on both ends of the court. Expect him to play a big role for the Thunder down the stretch.
Brown registered 20 points (6-10 FG, 8-9 FT), 11 rebounds and a block across 30 minutes in Wednesday's win over the Raptors.
Brown has been one of the Thunder's most pleasant surprises this season, and since he's already inked a multi-year deal with the franchise, he seems primed to play a big role down the stretch. The sophomore center has responded with a string of excellent performances, and he has four double-doubles in his last six games -- a span in which he's averaged 13.8 points, 14.7 rebounds, 1.0 steals and 1.3 blocks. That'll play in any fantasy format.
Brown and the Thunder agreed to terms on a multi-year contract Sunday, Marc Stein of the New York Times reports.
The Thunder haven't released the terms of the deal, but it likely includes a partial guarantee for Brown, who began the season as a two-way player. Brown emerged from relative obscurity after the All-Star break to average 12.4 points, 12.3 rebounds and 1.7 blocks over his last nine games. And with Al Horford shut down for the season, Brown should continue to have a path to heavy minutes the rest of the way.
Brown posted 21 points (8-10 FG, 5-8 FT) and 23 rebounds in 33 minutes Saturday in the Thunder's 111-94 loss to the Celtics.
Brown collected 17 of his points and 19 of his boards in the first half alone, becoming the first player since Shaquille O'Neal in 1998 to reach those totals through the first two quarters of a game, per ESPN Stats & Info. With the Thunder announcing prior to the contest that Al Horford would be shut down for rest purposes for the remainder of the season while OKC prioritizes the development of younger players, Brown should have a long runway as the team's starting center. He was already worthy of rostering in 12-team leagues while backing up Horford, but Brown becomes a must-roster player in nearly every league now that he sits atop the depth chart.
Brown recorded 19 points (7-9 FG, 5-9 FT), 12 rebounds, three blocks and two steals across 31 minutes in Wednesday's loss against the Grizzlies.
Brown moved back to the bench after starting five games in a row due to Al Horford's return to the lineup, but that didn't stop him to keep producing -- Brown now has three double-doubles over his last five appearances. He is averaging 11.4 points and 10.9 rebounds per game over his last eight contests (four starts) for the Thunder.
Brown will come off the bench Wednesday against the Grizzlies, Rylan Stiles of BricktownBuckets.com reports.
The 21-year-old started four of the past five games but will return to the bench Wednesday with Al Horford (rest) back in the lineup. Brown has averaged 10.3 points, 10.7 rebounds and 1.7 blocks in 26.4 minutes over the past seven games for the Thunder.
Brown had four points (2-6 FG), 17 rebounds and three blocks in Monday's win over the Timberwolves.
Al Horford rested for the fourth time in five games, so Brown made another start alongside Isaiah Roby in the frontcourt. Roby wasn't nearly as productive in his 31 minutes (nine points, four rebounds), but Brown continues to be a fantasy difference-maker since emerging from relative obscurity after the All-Star break. Brown now has at least 12 rebounds in four of his last seven appearances.
Brown will start Monday's game against Minnesota, Joe Mussatto of The Oklahoman reports.
With Al Horford resting for the fourth time in five games, Brown will remain in the starting five alongside Isaiah Roby. In Sunday's win over Houston, Brown finished with 13 points, 14 rebounds and a steal in 28 minutes.
Brown posted 13 points (5-8 FG, 3-6 FT) and 14 rebounds in Sunday's win over the Rockets.
With Al Horford resting, the Thunder started Brown and Isaiah Roby together, with the pair combining for 31 points and 22 rebounds. Brown has come out of nowhere to emerge as a rebounds/blocks contributor in fantasy leagues of late, though his overall value figures to fluctuate night-to-night based on Horford's status.
Brown posted 20 points (9-16 FG, 2-3 FT), 16 rebounds and five blocks across 30 minutes during Tuesday's 123-102 loss to the Bulls.
Tuesday's performance was the best of Brown's career, and it seems like there's a good chance he'll be fantasy relevant for the remainder of the season, especially if the Thunder trade Al Horford, who sat out Tuesday's game for rest. Not only was Brown's performance the best of his career, but it was also one of the better efforts by any big man this season. The only other player this season with a game of at least 20 points, eight offensive rebounds and five blocks is Clint Capela.
Brown finished Sunday's win over the Grizzlies with 13 points (5-6 FG, 3-3 FT), four rebounds, one steal and one block before fouling out in 24 minutes.
Brown got the nod over Isaiah Roby with Al Horford (rest) out, and, while he fared well, his fantasy upside was limited by the quick foul trouble. Brown only played in seven games between the start of the season and the All-Star break, but he's now played 19, 27 and 24 minutes over the Thunder's last three contests.
Brown will start at center in Sunday's game against the Grizzlies, Joe Mussatto of The Oklahoman reports.
After a nine-point, nine-rebound game Saturday against the Knicks, Brown earned himself the first start of his career while the team is holding out Al Horford for rest. The 21-year-old center will likely have a decent workload for the second-consecutive game after he played 27 minutes Saturday.
