Thunder's Darius Bazley: Puts up another double-double
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bazley finished with 11 points (3-10 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 4-7 FT), 10 rebounds, a steal and a block across 30 minutes in Thursday's win over the Spurs.

Bazley ended with 11 points and 10 rebounds for the second straight games, and he's now recorded three double-doubles over his last four appearances. He has also posted double-digit points and/or rebounds in each of his last six outings, so he has found ways to produce despite his persistent shooting woes. Bazley is averaging 12.5 points and 8.5 rebounds per game while shooting a meager 40.9 percent from the field during that aforementioned six-game stretch.

Thunder's Darius Bazley: Delivers another double-double
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bazley notched 11 points (3-11 FG, 2-8 3Pt, 3-6 FT) and 10 rebounds across 28 minutes in Wednesday's loss at Dallas.

Bazley delivered a double-double in what was one of the lowest-scoring games of the season, and he has reached that feat twice in his last three appearances. His shooting percentages remain subpar and he depends on volume to make things happen, but Bazley continues to be one of the most productive players on the Thunder roster on a nightly basis.

Thunder's Darius Bazley: Paces team in scoring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bazley recorded 22 points (8-16 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 3-4 FT), four rebounds and a block across 32 minutes Saturday in the Thunder's 126-96 loss to the Nuggets.

Though the Thunder were on the wrong end of a blowout, Bazley turned in his second strong shooting night in a row after having previously converted only 29 percent of his field-goal attempts over a four-game stretch. While Bazley took advantage of Al Horford's absence Friday against the Hawks to deliver a 18-point, 12-rebound line, the second-year forward kept the momentum going while Horford returned to the lineup Saturday for the second half of the back-to-back set. Consistency is still a concern for Bazley, but his excellent weekend should restore the faith of fantasy managers who may have contemplated dropping him from their rosters.

Thunder's Darius Bazley: Double-doubles in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bazley scored 18 points (8-12 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 1-4 FT) to go along with 12 rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block across 29 minutes in Friday's win over the Hawks.

Bazley was coming off a scoreless performance, but managed to rebound to match his highest point total in his last four games. He also notched double-digit boards for the second consecutive contest, leading to his sixth double-double of the campaign. Bazley rounded out his stat line with defensive contributions, a positive sign given that he had failed to register a block in any of his last five contests.

Thunder's Darius Bazley: Goes scoreless, grabs 10 boards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bazley posted zero points (0-8 FG, 0-3 3Pt) and 10 rebounds in 30 minutes during Wednesday's 102-99 win over the Spurs.

Wednesday marked the first time all season Bazley has been scoreless, though it's hardly the first time this season he's been extremely inefficient from the field. The forward is shooting just 38.4 percent from the field and 29.4 percent from three but continues to launch at enough volume to score 11.4 points per game. Most of his fantasy value at this point is coming from his rebounding (7.3).

Thunder's Darius Bazley: Three boards shy of double-double
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bazley notched 18 points (7-14 FG, 4-8 3Pt), seven rebounds and two assists across 32 minutes during Wednesday's loss at Memphis.

Bazley has scored 14 or more points in three straight games, and the two-game stretch where he couldn't reach the 10-point mark was simply an outlier. Bazley is a volume-based scorer and rarely delivers good shooting percentages such as Wednesday's, but he should remain a capable fantasy asset as long as he remains in the lineup. He is averaging 14.5 points per game despite shooting just 38.4 percent from the field in his last 10 contests.

Thunder's Darius Bazley: Scores 18 in victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bazley collected 18 points (8-13 FG, 2-7 3Pt), five rebounds, three assists and two steals across 32 minutes Sunday in the Thunder's 114-109 victory over the Bucks.

After two straight games of less than 10 points, Bazley was able to get back on track in the scoring column. The forward has taken advantage of his bump in playing time this season, averaging 11.9 points, 7.5 rebounds and 1.7 assists across 30.9 minutes per game.

Thunder's Darius Bazley: Modest production Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bazley recorded seven points (2-9 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), seven rebounds, two assists and one block over 29 minutes in Friday's 97-95 loss to the Nuggets.

Bazley had been quite productive on the scoreboard to begin the month, but he's now totaled just 16 points over the past two matchups. While he's still been relatively productive on the boards, he'll attempt to return to form Sunday against Milwaukee.

Thunder's Darius Bazley: Posts double-double in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bazley notched 21 points (7-21 FG, 2-8 3Pt, 5-5 FT), 16 rebounds, three assists and a steal across 42 minutes in Monday's 119-112 overtime loss against the Lakers.

Bazley's shooting woes have been well documented, and while he is not an abysmal shooter by any means, he has been prone to inefficient performances more often than not. Such was the case against the Lakers, but he overcame his shooting struggles with a season-high 16 rebounds. Bazley now has three double-doubles over his last four appearances.

Thunder's Darius Bazley: Provides 13 points in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bazley recorded 13 points (5-10 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-4 FT), four rebounds, an assist and a steal across 26 minutes in Saturday's 120-118 win over the Timberwolves.

The announcement of Al Horford's (rest) absence was good news for Bazley, but his upside was squelched by a surprising night from Mike Muscala. Bazley still managed a decent night of shooting, but Muscala compromised his rebound potential for the night.

Thunder's Darius Bazley: Starting Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bazley (back) will play and start Saturday against the Timberwolves, Joe Mussatto of The Oklahoman reports.

Bazley was originally questionable due to back soreness, but he's feeling good enough to play. He's scored in double figures across each of the past six games and, over this stretch, has averaged 14.7 points, 7.8 rebounds and 1.8 assists in 31.8 minutes.

Thunder's Darius Bazley: Questionable Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bazley (back) is questionable for Saturday's game against Minnesota.

Bazley posted a double-double Friday with 12 points and 10 rebounds over 35 minutes, but he's dealing with low back soreness that puts his status for Saturday's game into question. If Bazley is unable to play, Mike Muscala and Justin Jackson could see increased run for the Thunder.

Thunder's Darius Bazley: Another double-double
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bazley registered 12 points (4-14 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 3-4 FT), 10 rebounds and an assist across 35 minutes in Friday's loss against the Timberwolves.

Bazley might have ended with his second straight double-double -- the fifth time he accomplishes that feat this season -- but the efficiency issues surfaced again, as he needed 14 shots to record only 12 points and also missed five of his six attempts from long range. Bazley has scored in double digits in six straight games, though, so his volume-based performances continue to deliver value in most formats -- even if he's never going to show much efficiency when it comes to his shooting percentages.

Thunder's Darius Bazley: Puts together double-double
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bazley posted 18 points (6-13 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 4-4 FT), 12 rebounds, two assists and two blocks across 34 minutes Wednesday in the Thunder's 104-87 win over the Rockets.

After his production hit a bit of a lull in mid-January, Bazley has strung together a few quality outings in a row to remain a viable option in 12-team leagues. While efficiency will likely remain an issue for Bazley -- he's shooting 40.8 percent from the floor and 74.4 percent from the free-throw line on the season -- he should be a useful three-category contributor. Over the last five games, Bazley is averaging 15.2 points, 7.4 rebounds and 1.8 three-pointers.

Thunder's Darius Bazley: Scores 15 points in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bazley compiled 15 points (6-13 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 2-4 FT), six rebounds and an assist across 30 minutes in Monday's 136-106 loss to the Rockets.

As a core member of the Thunder's rebuilding effort, Bazley is availed with every opportunity to produce. Despite his young age, he's already distinguished himself as a floor-stretching big man who can make things happen all over the court. The team desperately needs his help offensively, so expect Bazley to continue his steady production.

Thunder's Darius Bazley: Provides balanced line
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bazley scored 14 points (5-9 FG, 2-5 3PT, 2-2 FT) to go along with five rebounds, four assists, one steal and one block across 33 minutes in Friday's loss to the Nets.

Bazley bounced back from a poor shooting performance Wednesday against the Suns to reach double-digit points for the fifth time in his last 11 games. He also posted a season-high four assists, as he had surpassed two dimes in only one game prior. Bazley also recorded a steal for the first time in five games and a block for the first time in four contests. Overall, Bazley is an inconsistent contributor due to his poor shooting and lack of defensive stats, though he has shown flashes of strong play with this line as one example.

Thunder's Darius Bazley: Three boards shy of double-double
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bazley registered 10 points (4-13 FG, 1-8 3Pt, 1-2 FT), seven rebounds and an assist across 30 minutes in Wednesday's win over the Suns.

Bazley might have ended with double-digit points for the second straight game and the third time in his last five contests, but it's not good to see him need 13 shots to reach the 10-point plateau. His shooting woes have been a real issue, as he's scored in double digits just eight times this year despite averaging 10.3 shots per game.

Thunder's Darius Bazley: Shows improved shooting in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bazley amassed 19 points (6-11 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 4-6 FT), seven rebounds and two assists in 29 minutes during Monday's 125-122 victory over the Trail Blazers.

Bazley looked better during the victory and appears to be gaining some much-needed confidence on the offensive end. He had been hyped coming into the season after an impressive run during the bubble, but on the whole, he has been somewhat underwhelming. The Thunder have everything to gain by playing Bazley no matter his output, making him a viable 12-team asset moving forward.

Thunder's Darius Bazley: Finds shooting stroke
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bazley chipped in 12 points (5-11 FG, 2-7 3Pt), two rebounds and two blocks in 24 minutes Tuesday night during the Thunder's 119-101 loss to the Nuggets.

Bazley's 12 points matched a high-water mark over his past six games. The second-year project came into Tuesday's game shooting just 37.2 percent from the field this season, including 7-for-31 from long range over his past six games. The rebuilding Thunder have plenty of shots to go around for young, developing players like Bazley, so he'll consistently have the green light to try to improve the averages.

Thunder's Darius Bazley: Sunday's game postponed
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bazley and the Thunder will not play Sunday against the 76ers after the game was postponed, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

The Sixers are undergoing contact tracing, so as of now it doesn't appear as though any Thunder players are at risk of missing time due to the virus. Oklahoma City's next scheduled game is Tuesday in Denver.
