It's a tight calf, so likely nerlens going to be a good streamer for a few games

how do you know it is a tight calf?

THIS GUY NEEDS TO BE A STARTER SOMEWHERE ELSE.

 

Spurs could use him, he just needs to show that he's not the brat that the Sixers made him out to be and the uncoachable player that made Carlisle (!) bench him for basically the entire season.

Good luck with this guy, that was a beastly line he put up the other day.

Everyone is healthy until they aren't (reference James Harden since January). I'm not trying to predict Adams health. The focus is on the upside of nerlens with minutes. If you can stash then stash. If you can't then be fast to any Twitter news. But this is the name of the game with wire guys. If it hits then you have a top 50 player. If it doesn't you keep hustling. No one should expect to start nerlens if he isn't starting. Also, this line was against the suns. It doesn't get much better than that.

He's unrosterable in H2H if you're looking for seasonlong gains. If you own Adams in a roto league of a certain depth, it's a different story.

Everyone needs to apply the context of their league setting. I can't go through all the variations. The point is that nerlens represents high upside if his starter goes down. That's all.

Yea agree high upside, and if he's on the wire it's by definition low risk.  That said, there's an opportunity cost and anybody that picks him up should be prepared and ready to move on quickly if the minutes and production aren't there.

He really can't handle big minutes anymore.

 

Yea you're dealing with two problems with Noel:

 

1) he kinda sucks now

2) even if he plays well he's a big injury risk and more minutes, more risk.

 

I'd say he has a very high upside with almost no chance to reach, this year or any other year.

Questionable to play after ankle tweak in last game. Would have been useful to have heard about that yesterday after the game...

What's up with this guy. Is he not even trying?

 

He fouled out in 9 minutes lol

 

His personal fouls are through the roof this year.

 

Million dollar talent (now down to about 10 dollars thanks to injuries) and a 10 cent head.  This dude is a superstar in an alternate universe but in this one?  Drop him.

2 steals 2 blocks in 5 minutes, it’s criminal that they don’t give him a few more minutes...

Quietly averaging over 2.5 stocks the last 2 weeks. I just added him in my 14 team league. Shrewd add in the case Adams ever goes down, and he is still producing low end value in 15-20 minutes anyways.

Any OKC fans (or people who watches OKC) here? Do they ever play Noel & Adams together?

 

No. It’s scientifically impossible. Neither can shoot outside of 5 feet
