Oklahoma City Thunder

Western Northwest

Danilo Gallinari will be held out of Saturday's game against Portland for rest purposes, Jamie Hudson of NBC Sports Northwest reports. (Source: Jamie Hudson on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The Thunder playing on the backend of a back-to-back on Saturday and is looking to give Gallinari a rest. The veteran forward has a deep injury history and fantasy owners need not panic as Gallinari should be back out on the floor when the team faces the Rockets on Monday.

Hamidou Diallo contributed 11 points (5-12 FG, 1-4 3PT, 0-1 FT), six rebounds, and one steal in 23 minutes of play off the bench Friday night.

Fantasy Impact: It was Diallo's first double-digit scoring output in seven games, so while it was nice to see him more involved in the offense, he shouldn't be trusted on fantasy rosters at this point. He is worth keeping on your radar as the former Kentucky Wildcat is still a raw talent.

Nerlens Noel scored ten points (4-6 FG, 1-1 3PT, 1-1 FT) with six rebounds, one steal, and three blocks over 21 minutes of the Thunder’s loss to the Heat Friday night.

Fantasy Impact: Noel is averaging 7.7 points, 5.1 rebounds, 1.2 assists, 1.1 steals, and 1.6 blocks per game in 18.5 minutes a game in 35 played. Noel could be a cheap plug and play option tonight against Portland if Steven Adams is ruled out again.

Dennis Schroder scored 18 points (6-16 FG, 3-11 3PT, 3-3 FT) with seven rebounds and eight assists across 37 minutes of Friday’s 115-108 loss to Miami.

Fantasy Impact: Schroder is averaging 18.3 points, 3.8 rebounds, 3.8 assists, 0.7 steals, and 1.9 3PM per game over 41 games. Schroder ranks around the top 100 in category formats and would see an increase in value should anything change with Chris Paul at the trade deadline.

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander scored 18 points (5-13 FG, 2-6 3PT, 6-6 FT) with five rebounds, eight assists, and a steal in Friday’s loss to the Heat.

Fantasy Impact: Gilgeous-Alexander has been on a roll over his last 15 games averaging 23.1 points, 6.7 rebounds, 3.4 assists, 1.6 steals, and 1.3 3PM per game while shooting 53 percent over that span. Gilgeous-Alexander is on pace to return top 50 value this year, up next are the Blazers tonight.

Chris Paul scored 14 points (6-10 FG, 2-6 3PT) with three rebounds and six assists in Friday’s loss to Miami.

Fantasy Impact: Paul is averaging 16.4 points, 5.1 rebounds, 6.5 assists, 1.6 steals, and 1.6 3PM per game while shooting 47 percent on the season. The Thunder host the Blazers tonight.

Steven Adams is not on the injury report for Friday's matchup with the Heat after suffering a right knee bruise Wednesday against Toronto. (Source: NBA Injury Report)

Fantasy Impact: Adams played just seven minutes Wednesday before heading to the locker room, though he's been cleared to play Friday against Miami. There is, however, a chance his workload is scaled back for precautionary measures.

Mike Muscala compiled 17 points (6-11 FG, 3-7 3PT, 2-3 FT), four rebounds, three assists, one steal, and one block over 30 minutes of play Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact: Muscala played the majority of minutes at center after Steven Adams left with a knee injury. If he and Nerlens Noel remain out Friday Muscala will become a great fantasy value.

Terrance Ferguson scored 14 points (5-7 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three rebounds and one assist across 28 minutes in the Thunder's 117-104 victory over the Timberwolves.

Fantasy Impact: Monday's game against Minnesota was just the fifth time all season where Ferguson scored double digits. With that said, Ferguson can be left on the waiver wire and used as a cheap option for DFS tournaments.

Darius Bazley got the spot start on Sunday against the Clippers with Danilo Gallinari out with an ankle injury. Bazley finished with seven points, eight rebounds, two assists, and two steals in 25 minutes.

Fantasy Impact: Bazley would be next in line for minutes if Gallinari is indeed traded. For now, Bazley is only a DFS option whenever Gallinari is out.

Abdel Nader records 15 points (5-9 FG, 5-6 3Pt), four rebounds, and one steal over 33 minutes in the Thunder's 94-93 loss to the Kings on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact: Nader hasn't been worthy of rostering this season but with Terrace Ferguson missing time Nader can be a spot start for a team that needs a forward. Be sure to keep an eye on Ferguson's status moving forward before you move Nader into your starting lineup.

Andre Roberson will miss Friday's matchup with the Lakers while recovering from off-season knee surgery. (Source: NBA Injury Report)

Fantasy Impact: Roberson's rehab continues, and he still hasn't made his season debut for the Thunder. There's no timetable for his return, and his role once healthy remains unclear.

Category: Injury Updates


Deonte Burton managed four points (2-2 FG) over 11 minutes in the Thunder's 112-107 loss to the Lakers on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact: Burton saw double-digit minutes for the second time in three games, though he's averaged just 7.4 minutes on the court this season. He won't make much of an impact barring injuries or a blowout loss in which starters are sent to the bench.

Patrick Patterson has decided to mount up with the Clippers on a one-year, $2.3 million deal. The move comes after the Oklahoma City Thunder bought out Patterson's contract earlier this month, allowing him to become a free agent. (Source: Adrian Wojnarowski on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: This is a solid move for the Clips as they sign a productive veteran to add to their already deep front court. Patterson is coming off an underwhelming two years in OKC, where he only averaged 3.6 points in 13.7 minutes played per game last season. He'll be fighting for meaningful minutes in Los Angeles as well but a move to the championship contending Clips could help revitalize his career. He won't hold any fantasy value, however.

Russell Westbrook has been traded to the Houston Rockets in exchange for Chris Paul, first round picks in 2024, 2026, and pick swaps in 2021, and 2025. (Source: Adrian Wojnarowski on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Russell Westbrook has reunited with James Harden to form quite the dynamic duo in Houston. With the Thunder entering a rebuilding phase, they decided to move on from Westbrook and his enormous contract, which includes a $46.7 million player option in 2022-2023. His fantasy value will take a small hit, due to the fact he is sharing the ball now with James Harden. Westbrook averaged 22.9 points, 11.1 rebounds, 10.7 assists, and 1.9 steals in 73 games for Thunder last season.

The Oklahoma City Thunder have traded Jerami Grant to the Denver Nuggets in return for a first-round pick in 2020. (Source: Adrian Wojnarowski on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The Thunder continue their firesale, and one has to wonder if their MVP point guard is the next one to be dealt. Regardless, the Nuggets are receiving a versatile stretch-forward who scored a career-high 13.2 PPG and hit 39.2% of his three-point attempts. Grant may not crack the starting lineup in the Mile High City just yet, but the 24-year-old joins a young core ready to take another step in the playoffs.

The Los Angeles Clippers have received 2019 NBA MVP candidate Paul George from the Oklahoma City Thunder. The Thunder will receive Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, Danilo Galllinari and a record-setting number of draft choices. (Source: Adrian Wojnarkowski on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: George has been Kawhi Leonard’s preferred running mate all along. Leonard gave the Clippers time to acquire the two-way star and now this seemingly means Leonard is on his way to Los Angeles, as a Clipper.
