Chet Holmgren News
Oklahoma City Thunder center Chet Holmgren (ankle) is listed as available for Wednesday's meeting with the Denver Nuggets. Holmgren was not spotted at the team's morning shootaround, which spelled pessimism for his availability, but he's good to go and will avoid missing his first game of the campaign. The 21-year-old Rookie of the Year candidate may be hitting the proverbial rookie wall of late, averaging 11.7 points on 41.8% shooting from the field, 8.2 rebounds, 2.9 assists, 2.8 blocks, and 1.0 treys in 30.7 minutes over his last nine games, but he's returned second-round fantasy value in nine-category leagues overall in Year 1. Considering the defending champions are without Nikola Jokic (back) on Wednesday, Holmgren's matchup outlook should be brightened significantly.
Oklahoma City Thunder forward/center Chet Holmgren (ankle) could be unavailable for the first time this season on Wednesday against Denver, as he has landed on the injury report as questionable. The rising star is nursing a left ankle sprain. Jaylin Williams could get a massive workload without Holmgren on Wednesday, while the rest of the frontcourt will also be asked to step up, especially with Jalen Williams (ankle) already ruled out for the contest.
Oklahoma City Thunder center Chet Holmgren may have experienced the worst shooting performance of his young career in Monday's 126-;117 victory over the Atlanta Hawks, but he tallied his third double-double of the campaign and connected on all seven of his free-throw attempts. Holmgren ultimately closed with 16 points on 4-of-14 shooting, 12 rebounds, three assists, and three blocks. The 2022 No. 2 overall pick has been phenomenal thus far, following an entirely missed 2022-23 year due to a Lisfranc injury. Holmgren is returning first-round value in 12-team 9-category settings with averages of 17.0 points (55.3% shooting overall, 90.0% from the stripe), 8.0 boards, 2.7 dimes, plus 3.4 combined steals and blocks. Already resembling a young version of Kristaps Porzingis, the 21-year-old's next chance to impress is on Wednesday versus the Cleveland Cavaliers. Holmgren swatted seven shots along with a double-double against the Cavs on Oct. 27.
Oklahoma City Thunder head coach Mark Daigneault said forward/center Chet Holmgren (foot) is fully recovered from his foot injury at Tuesday's training camp. This serves as confirmation that the 2022 No. 2 overall pick is good to go for his NBA regular-season debut after tearing up the Summer League this past July. Holmgren suffered a Lisfranc injury during last year's summer exhibitions, costing him his rookie campaign, but should slide right into OKC's starting center spot this fall. The 21-year-old is looking like the fourth or fifth scoring option in an up-and-coming Thunder lineup, but Holmgren's blocks and percentages upside could make it hard to let him slip past the top 50 in fantasy drafts this fall.
