by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(1/27/2015) Thunder center Steven Adams doesn't know how he gets migraines, but he's trying to figure it out. Adams missed Sunday's game against the Cavaliers when 30 minutes before tipoff, he caught a sharp pain in his head.

"I started losing peripheral vision in my left eye," Adams said. "I couldn’t see anything like right here (places hand close to face). And from then on it was going downhill. Got a mess of pain, got real drowsy, couldn’t do nothing."

Adams said he's been dealing with these types of pain since he was 14-years-old.

"It’s really random," Adams said. "Don’t even know. I’ve been seeing someone, trying to figure out what my trigger points are."

Thunder C Steven Adams grabs career-high 20 rebounds


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1/21/2015) Thunder center Steven Adams scored six points on 3 of 7 shooting while hauling in a career-high 20 rebounds in his team's 105-103 overtime win over the Wizards Wednesday.

Adams' previous rebounding high came earlier this season when he racked up 15 rebounds on Christmas Day. He was able to post a double-double in that performance but couldn't manage many points on a night where Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant combined to score 66. The Thunder are set to face the Hawks Friday.


Thunder C Steven Adams doubles up vs. Timberwolves


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12/12/2014) Thunder center Steven Adams scored a season-high 16 points on 8 of 12 shooting while racking up 11 rebounds in his team's 111-92 win over the Timberwolves Friday.

Adams came just one point shy of matching his career scoring high set last November, but he did manage to put together just his second double-double of the season. 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


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11/7/2014) Thunder center Steven Adams scored 13 points on 6 of 9 shooting and grabbed 11 rebounds in his team's 91-89 loss to the Grizzlies Friday.

The Thunder had just nine players available as the team continues to deal with a rash of injuries, leading to Adams playing a season-high 34 minutes in the loss. It's the first double-double of the season for the big man from New Zealand, who also tallied two assists and two steals Friday. The Thunder are set to face the Kings Sunday.


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. 


Thunder announce lineup, Steven Adams named starting center


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/28/2014) Thunder coach Scott Brooks announced Tuesday that Steven Adams has won the starting center job, per The Oklahoman. Brooks added the team's lineup for Wednesday's season opener against the Trail Blazers will be Russell Westbrook, Andre Roberson, Perry Jones, Serge Ibaka and Adams.

Thunder extend four players Wednesday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/22/2014) The Thunder picked up options on four players Wednesday. 

Andre Roberson and Steven Adams had their third-year options picked up by the club. Both Jeremy Lamb and Perry Jones had their fourth-year options covered by the team. 


Steven Adams back to bench for good


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/10/2014) Though he started 18 of 19 games with Kendrick Perkins out, Thunder center Steven Adams has been back on the bench over the last two games.

Adams played 19 minutes in the team's 107-101 win over the Clippers Wednesday, one night after logging 27 minutes, while coming off the bench in both games. Adams averaged just 3.2 points and 4.4 rebounds per game during his stretch as a starter.

The Oklahoman reports Thursday Adams is likely to see just sporadic playing time in the postseason, which is in line with his season role. He has played fewer than 20 minutes in 47 of 77 games so far this season, averaging 3.3 points and 4.3 rebounds per game as a rookie.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
