His 29 minutes marked his highest usage rate since Nov. 14. Adams chipped in one assist and one block in the win, the team's fifth straight. He'll square off with the Suns Sunday.


Thunder C Steven Adams posts double-double vs. Grizzlies

Not buying into Steven Adams' Fantasy value


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/29/2014) 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.
