    Description: Thunder center Steven Adams grabbed a season-high 20 rebounds versus the Wizards on Wednesday.
    Insight: This came out of nowhere. Adams hadn't recorded a 10-rebound game since Christmas Day. Adams is averaging 6.4 rpg this month, so this is definitely an aberration.
     
    Hot12/25/2014 5:26:00 PM
    Description: Thunder center Steven Adams was solid in his Christmas Day outing versus San Antonio with 16 points, 15 rebounds and three blocks.
    Insight: Adams has been playing well of late, with four consecutive games of double-digit rebounds and it's the reason he saw 32 minutes and Kendrick Perkins just 12 minutes.
     
    12/18/2014 12:03:00 PM
    Description: Thunder center Steven Adams is probable for Thursday's game against Golden State while dealing with a sore left calf.
    Insight: Adams is seeing around 25 minutes a game, but doesn't produce much with them. He's averaging 7.5 ppg, 7.0 rpg, 1.2 bpg. As long as Kendrick Perkins is healthy they will split the time fairly evenly and neither will be fantasy worthy.
     
    10/17/2014 4:46:00 PM
    Description: Thunder center Steven Adams could be a player for owners to keep an eye on this season.
    Insight: While he should not be drafted, Adams may find himself starting at center at some point this season. He has made his presence felt with Oklahoma City, and probably will give more production on the floor, than Kendrick Perkins is able to give.
     
    3/30/2014 7:27:00 PM
    Description: Thunder rookie center Steven Adams had eight points, eight rebounds and two steals Sunday against the Jazz.
    Insight: Adams has started 17 straight games for the Thunder but played under 18 minutes per game in that span. He's not a fantasy option.
     
    2/28/2014 7:43:00 PM
    Description: Thunder rookie center Steven Adams (illness) will start Friday against Memphis, according to Anthony Slater of The Oklahoman.
    Insight: Adams has done very little this season, even as a starter in place of the injured Kendrick Perkins. There's no need to own him at this time.
     
    2/25/2014 1:26:00 PM
    Description: Thunder rookie center Steven Adams should continue to start with Kendrick Perkins sidelined for up to six weeks.
    Insight: Adams has averaged 3.7 ppg and 3.3 rpg in three games as a starter which means he currently has zero interest for fantasy owners.
     
    2/22/2014 1:38:00 PM
    Description: Thunder rookie center Steven Adams will start with Kendrick Perkins sidelined.
    Insight: Adams has averaged 5.0 ppg and 2.0 rpg in two games as a starter which means he has zero interest for fantasy owners.
     
    12/12/2013 11:59:00 AM
    Description: Thunder rookie center Steven Adams suffered a right ankle sprain in the fourth quarter of Wednesday's game against Memphis.
    Insight: Adams started a couple of games earlier this season, but is seeing about 16 minutes off the bench and his statistics (4.1 ppg, 4.8 rpg) don't warrant attention from fantasy owners.
     
    11/13/2013 3:05:00 PM
    Description: Thunder rookie center Steven Adams is expected to move into the starting lineup for the next two games while Kendrick Perkins is out due to the death of his grandfather, according to Yahoo! Sports.
    Insight: Adams, the 12th pick in the 2013 NBA Draft, has played 20 minutes per game as a reserve this season and is averaging 6.0 points, 6.0 rebounds, 1.3 blocks and 0.5 steals. The Thunder are unlikely to remove Perkins from the starting lineup permanently, however, as they were reluctant to amnesty him even though it gave them a better chance to retain James Harden.
