Thunder guard Luguentz Dort scores 42 points and grabs seven rebounds in Tuesday's 106-96 loss vs. Jazz.

Fantasy Impact: Fantasy owners were excited about the production Dort had on Tuesday. The 21-year-old out of Arizona State went 16 for 31 shooting the ball, which was his season-high, along with the points he scored. Dort even added four steals to the box score. Could this performance be a sign for Dort's fantasy future? It's possible. After a game like this, the Thunder can allow Dort to take more shots from the floor and be a consistent fantasy target for managers in games to come.

Thunder center Tony Bradley scores 16 and grabs 14 rebounds points in Saturday's 117-93 loss to Sixers.

Fantasy Impact: Bradley has played at least 20 minutes in six consecutive contests. Whether the Thunder games are competitive or not, Bradley has been worked into the rotation at a solid rate despite coming off the bench. Though his performances recently have been volatile, Bradley does have double-double upside every game, and Saturday was another example of this.

Thunder forward Darius Bazley scores 17 points, grabs nine rebounds, and dishes out five assists in Saturday's 117-93 loss to Sixers.

Fantasy Impact: Saturday was Bazley's first game since 3/4, and he played 36 minutes which was a pleasant surprise to fantasy owners. Though it's a small sample size, Bazley's production on the court cut into teammates Moses Brown's and Aleksej Pokusevski's. Fantasy managers would like to see more consistency from Bazley before considering rostering him as this was a one-game sample size in his return from being sidelined.

Fantasy Impact: Pokusevski got the start but went scoreless in just eight minutes in the first half. Jaylen Hoard opened the second half with the starting unit.

Thunder guard Kenrich Williams scores 12 points, dishes out nine assists, and compiles seven rebounds in Thursday's 129-102 loss to Cavaliers.

Fantasy Impact: It has quietly been two consecutive games where Williams flirted with a triple-double. Having played at least 31 minutes in two straight games, Williams becomes more of a fantasy consideration than he has before. Still, he remains viable in deeper leagues as fantasy managers would like to see more consistency before rostering Williams with conviction.

Thunder center Moses Brown scores 13 points and grabs 11 rebounds in Thursday's 129-102 loss to Cavaliers.

Fantasy Impact: Thursday was Brown's second consecutive performance with at least ten rebounds. Though he's been inconsistent as of late, Brown has two double-doubles in four games. Many are believers in Brown's long-term potential based on some performances at just 21 years of age in his second NBA season. There's reason to be optimistic we see more strong fantasy outings from Brown throughout the season.

Thunder guard Ty Jerome scores 23 points in Thursday's 129-102 loss to the Cavaliers.

Fantasy Impact: Thursday's performance was Jerome's season-high in points. He led the Thunder in field goals made and points partly due to the game getting out of hand. Still, maybe we see Jerome obtain more playing time going forward with this good performance. However, he remains an option primarily in deeper leagues until we see otherwise.

Thunder forward Jaylen Hoard scores 13 points in Wednesday's 113-102 loss to the Hornets.

Fantasy Impact: Wednesday was Hoard's second game this season, where he played 24 minutes. With the Thunder seemingly open to trying new things in their system, Hoard could be a player they want to work in for the remainder of the season. This is two straight outings with north of 20 minutes played. He may not be on many fantasy managers' radars right now, but it's worth monitoring Hoard's progress as we move through the rest of the year.

Thunder guard Theo Maledon scores 25 points in Wednesday's 113-102 loss to Hornets.

Fantasy Impact: Maledon added five assists and five rebounds to the box score, which was pleasant for fantasy owners. Wednesday was the second time in four games Maledon attempted 18 field goals. The usage rate remains tremendous for the Rookie though he can improve his efficiency shooting the ball. Still, Maledon is a risky option for fantasy owners to consider based on the upside he's flashed, assuming the Thunder are in a competitive game for all 48 minutes.

Thunder guard Svi Mykhailiuk scores 17 points in Monday's 132-108 loss to Pistons.

Fantasy Impact: Of all the Thunder players who took ten or more field goal attempts, Mykhailiuk led in field goal percentage. Mykhailiuk's fantasy production has not been the most consistent, but he's proven that he has fantasy upside if he attempts ten or more shots from the floor. Fantasy owners were likely pleased with Mykhailiuk's ability to stuff the box score with four steals on Monday, which was his season-high. Still, Mykhailiuk averages .8 steals per game, so that statistical category, along with rebounds (2.3) and assists (1.5), implies his fantasy upside is mainly tied to a hot shooting night.

Fantasy Impact: Roby sustained the injury Saturday night vs. the Trail Blazers. There’s no timetable for his return, so consider him out indefinitely while he progresses through the protocol. Expect more minutes for guys like Kenrich Williams and Justin Jackson while Roby is out.

Thunder F/C Al Horford will not play the remainder of the season as Oklahoma City looks to get young guys more minutes. (Source: Adrian Wojnarowski on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The five-time All-Star will continue to train with the team, but will not play in the remaining 28 games. Rookie C Moses Brown becomes an absolute must-add in all fantasy leagues, while guys like Isaiah Roby and Alexsej Pokusevski will continue to be main stays in the rotation.


The Oklahoma City Thunder are trading veteran PG George Hill to the Philadelphia 76ers for Tony Bradley, Terrance Ferguson, and two future second round picks. (Source: Shams Charania on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The Sixers get a high quality backup point guard behind Ben Simmons. This also takes some of the pressure off Shake Milton and will allow him to focus more on scoring.

The Thunder announced on Wednesday that guard Shai Gilgeous-Alexander would be out for an "extended period" and would miss "a significant amount of time" with plantar fasciitis in his right foot. (Source: Bryan Keating via Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Well, this is a bummer, especially after SGA just poured in 31 points on Monday in a win over Minnesota. The team went on to say that it's been a "cumulative" issue that has been building up over time. SGA has posted top-50 fantasy value this season when healthy, but with the Thunder sitting at 19-24 entering Wednesday, they clearly won't be rushing their star guard back any time soon. One has to wonder how much he will play for the rest of the season while dealing with an injury that only heals with extended rest on a tanking team. Young guards Theo Maledon and Ty Jerome should see an uptick in fantasy value with SGA out of the lineup.

The Oklahoma City Thunder have traded guard Hamidou Diallo to the Detroit Pistons in exchange for Svi Mykhailiuk and a second-round pick. (Source: Adrian Wojnarowski on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: It is a 2027 second-round pick. Diallo has averaged just under 12 points over close to 24 minutes per game this season, while Mykhailiuk is averaging just under seven points per game this season with the Pistons. Diallo has not played since February 24 due to a groin injury. The Pistons appear to be big on Diallo as he gets set to be an restricted free agent after this season. He should get more opportunity with the Pistons, while Mykhailiuk will likely continue to hold a smaller role with Oklahoma City.

Thunder PF/C Mike Muscala scored 18 points (7-13 FG, 4-7 3PT) to go along with seven rebounds and one block in OKC's victory over the Spurs.

Fantasy Impact: With Al Horford resting on Thursday, Muscala played an increased role for the Thunder, a role that yielded an efficient scoring night for the Thunder big man. Muscala's 18 points on Thursday marked the first time that he's eclipsed the 15-point mark since February 17th, a pleasant surprise for any Muscala managers. However, with Al Horford and Isaiah Roby still in front of him, Muscala should remain on the waiver wire for now.

Justin Jackson scored a season-high 20 points (7-11 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 3-3 FT) to go along with three rebounds, three assists, and two steals across 28 minutes in Friday's 95-97 loss to the Nuggets.

Fantasy Impact: Jackson's playing time has been sporadic all season, but he took full advantage of his 28 minutes on Friday, compiling his best game of the season. While Jackson isn't a reliable fantasy option, his minutes could be on the rise with so many Thunder injuries and continued good play.
