Oklahoma City Thunder

Western Northwest

According to Kevin O'Conner of the Ringer, the Sixers front-office has "seriously debated" going after Chris Paul. (Source: Michael Kaskey-Blomain on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The Sixers don't have the cap space available to trade for Chris Paul - primarily because he is owed $41M next season and $44M in 2021-22. If the Sixers are going to pull this off, they'll have to part with cornerstone players and will likely have to get another team involved.

Steven Adams scored six points on 3-of-9 shooting, with 14 rebounds (nine offensive), one assist, one steal, and four turnovers across 31 minutes as Thunder force Game 7.

Fantasy Impact: Adams was extremely active on the glass in Game 6. He's now grabbed double-digit rebounds in five of six games against the undersized Rockets. Adams and the Thunder will now look ahead to a decisive Game 7 Wednesday night.

Dennis Schroder produced a team-high 19 points (6-13 FG, 3-8 3PT, 4-5 FT) and contributed one rebound, one steal, one block, and two turnovers across 21minutes in a 114-80 loss to the Rockets in Game 5.

Fantasy Impact: Schroder scored all 19 points in the first half before getting ejected after a scuffle with PJ Tucker that led to picking up a flagrant two foul. Schroder was the reason the Thunder was in the game until the third quarter, but after he was tossed, the game was out of reach. Schroder is playing well, but the Thunder will need him to finish the game if they're going to be able to extend the series being down 3-2. Schroder is a reliable DFS target as he's caught fire the past three contests in the series.

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander posted 18 points (7-17 FG, 2-2 FT, 2-5 3PT), 12 rebounds, six assists and one turnover across a game-high 44 minutes during the Thunder's 117-114 victory over the Rockets on Monday.

Fantasy Impact: Gilgeous-Alexander took a backseat to Dennis Schroder (30 points) and Chris Paul (26 points) in Game 4 but was able to contribute 12 rebounds and six assists to help fuel the Thunder to victory. The 22-year-old guard is averaging 20.2 points and 7.2 rebounds per game so far in the series.

Luguentz Dort played 36 minutes in an overtime, Game 3 victory over the Rockets, scoring nine points (3-10 FG, 0-6 3PT, 3-5 FT) and adding eight rebounds, one assist, and three blocks, with two turnovers on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact: Dort was a menace on defense, pestering James Harden into shooting 3-for-14 when being guarded by Dort. Game 3 showcased his ability as a lockdown defender, and it looks like he's healthy and ready for his assignment to slow down Harden for the remainder of the series. Despite his success on defense, Dort doesn't have the offensive skill set to warrant consideration in DFS at this time.

Danilo Gallinari recorded 29 points (9-17 FG, 2-5 3PT, 9-9 FT), three rebounds, three assists, and one block over 33 minutes of play Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact: It was a strong scoring performance for Gallinari, who doesn't typically lead the Thunder offensively. This type of performance shouldn't be expected in game two Thursday.

Hamidou Diallo registered 27 points (10-22 FG, 4-8 3PT, 3-5 FT), 11 rebounds, one assist, and one block over 40 minutes in Friday's 103-107 loss to the Clippers.

Fantasy Impact: In the Thunder's final regular season game, Diallo was given his largest opportunity and most minutes as a pro and made the best of it, churning out a career-high in points and rebounds. The Kentucky product is buried deep on a depth chart and the Thunder will likely be fielding some calls from other organizations about his availability this offseason.

Mike Muscala logged six points (2-5 FG, 2-4 3PT), five rebounds, and one assist in Wednesday's win over the Pacers.

Fantasy Impact: Muscala was 0-3 from the field heading into the fourth quarter but drained back-to-back threes in the final minute to squeeze out the one-point win over the Pacers. Muscala is averaging just 4.8 points, 2.3 rebounds, and 0.9 assists per game and is pretty far removed from the fantasy radar.

Darius Bazley logged a team-high 21 points (8-14 FG, 5-8 3PT, 0-1 FT), nine rebounds, four assists, one block, and one steal in a tight win over the Heat.

Fantasy Impact: Bazley set his career high in points (23) on Sunday and has followed that up with 22 and 21 points performances, showing that he is ready for the big stage. Over this three game stretch Bazley is averaging 22.0 points, 8.7 rebounds, 2.7 assists, 1.0 steals, and 0.7 blocks. Expect to see a heavy dose of the red-hot rookie in Friday's matchup against the Clippers.

Abdel Nader drew the start for the Thunder in Monday's 128-101 loss to the Suns. He scored 15 points (6-9 FG, 2-4 3pt, 1-1 FT), he also had two steals, one rebound, and two turnovers in 26 minutes of play.

Fantasy Impact: Abdel Nader could be an interesting value play down the stretch if the Thunder continue to have multiple starters out down the stretch.

Fantasy Impact: Noel was a late scratch before Sunday's game due to right ankle soreness. The Thunder were being cautious with Noel and decided to sit him out Sunday. It is unclear if he will miss additional time, but his next chance to return will be Monday against the Suns. Noel is averaging 7.5 points, 4.9 rebounds, 0.9 assists, 1.0 steals and 1.5 blocks across 59 games this season.

Andre Roberson is out against the Wizards, as he is being rested after experiencing some foot soreness, per coach, Billy Donovan. (Source: Erik Horne on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Roberson has averaged 8.5 minutes of playing time, 1.0 points, 2.3 rebounds, 0.3 steals, and 0.5 blocks per game. With him being out, Abdel Nader could see increased playing time.

Per Billy Donovan, Thunder G Terrance Ferguson has been ruled out of Monday’s game vs. Denver with a leg contusion. (Source: Dave McMenamin on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Ferguson saw just three minutes in the team’s first game, so his absence won’t have much of an effect on other members of the Thunder. That being said, Ferguson’s teammate Dennis Schroder has left the bubble for a personal reason, making both Luguentz Dort and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander great values in DFS.

Isaiah Roby will miss the rest of the season after undergoing a minor procedure on his right plantar fascia. (Source: Joe Mussatto of The Oklahoman)

Fantasy Impact: The 6’8” rookie out Nebraska was the 45th overall pick in the 2019 draft. This season, Roby has appeared in three games for the Thunder and averaged 3.8 minutes of playing time per game. His spot on the roster will not be filled.

The Detroit Pistons have signed former Oklahoma City Thunder F/C Justin Patton. (Source: Omari Sankofa II on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Patton played this past season for the Oklahoma City Blue of the G League as well as five games for the Thunder. The former 16th overall pick in 2017 out of Creighton gets $483,115 from Detroit for the remainder of this season as well as a fully non-guaranteed salary of $1,762,796 for the 2020-21 season. A solid pickup at the young age of just 23 for the Pistons. Patton still has a lot of potential and maybe he could even be the next Christian Wood.
