|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(12/19/14) Thunder center Kendrick Perkins will not play in Friday's game against the Lakers due to a left knee contusion, The Oklahoman reports.
The injury is considered minor and Perkins is day-to-day, which means he may end up missing just one game before returning Sunday against the Pelicans. He has averaged 4.0 points and 5.9 rebounds in 26 games.
The Thunder are a 5 1/2-point favorite in Friday's game against the Lakers in Los Angeles.
Not buying into Steven Adams' Fantasy value
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
|(10/29/14) The Thunder will turn to Steven Adams to start at center to open the season Wednesday, finally ending Kendrick Perkins' hold on the role. Should Fantasy owners be jumping at the chance to add the second-year big man, given his role?
I'm not convinced. Yes, Adams has talent and could be a solid option down the road, but I'm not sure he is ready to impact the box score in a big way. His merits for the Thunder are clear: s he brings more mobility and athleticism to the table than the plodding Perkins. However, those talents may not make much of a difference for Fantasy, where all that matters is how many times you can make your name show up in the box score.
Adams started 20 games last season while Perkins dealt with injuries, but was basically a non-factor. He averaged 3.3 points, 4.2 rebounds and just 0.5 blocks per game, while racking up 2.4 personal fouls in 17.1 minutes per game. Although he should see a bigger role this time around as a starter, fouls are probably going to put a ceiling on how much he is able to play.
Adams played 25-plus minutes six times as a rookie, and averaged just 6.7 points, 6.3 rebounds and 1.8 blocks in those games. He should top those numbers but probably doesn't have much of a chance to be a consistent starting Fantasy option at this point in his career.
