Oklahoma City Thunder guard Josh Giddey (hip) is not expected to be back on the court anytime soon. Head coach Mark Daigneault said Giddey's injury is not a day-to-day issue and he is likely to miss time. This is certainly frustrating with the fantasy playoffs right around the corner. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander will see his usage skyrocket through the roof with both Giddey and Luguentz Dort (shoulder) sidelined. Tre Mann should move into the starting five and is worth snagging in most fantasy formats.
Oklahoma City Thunder small forward Josh Giddey and center Derrick Favors have entered the league's health and safety protocols as of Tuesday, ruling the duo out indefinitely. Giddey has emerged as a stat sheet stuffer during his rookie campaign, having amassed 10.8 points, 7.1 rebounds, and 6.1 assists across his first 30 professional contests. Favors has played a sparing role in the frontcourt for OKC, snagging just 4.9 boards per outing, which is on pace to set a new career low. Giddey's absence opens up more playmaking opportunities for Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and Luguentz Dort, while Kenrich Williams will likely see a bump in minutes; Favors' absence paves the way for Mike Muscala and Isaiah Roby to hold down the center spot for the time being.
Oklahoma City Thunder shooting guard Josh Giddey logged his sixth double-double of the season by posting 10 boards, 10 assists, and zero points during a 117-112 victory over the New Orleans Pelicans on Sunday. The 19-year-old went 0-for-8 from the field, including 0-2 from deep. The rookie guard is a fascinating player, as this is the second double-double in which one category wasn't points. The Australian product has shared playmaking responsibilities with point guard Shai Gilgeous-Alexander but needs to refine his scoring touch to enhance his fantasy profile. While Giddey's 7.1 rebounds, 6.1 assists, and 1.5 stocks per game from the guard position are strong, his 38.8 shooting from the field, including 24.5% from deep, and 65.1% from the line leaves a bit to be desired.
Oklahoma City Thunder shooting guard Josh Giddey made things tick on Monday against Memphis with 11 assists and finished the contest with 19 points on 7-for-16 shooting. He was 3-for-8 with the three-ball and 2-for-6 at the line, adding three rebounds with one steal and three turnovers. Giddey narrowly missed a triple-double at the weekend against the Clippers and this was another nice all-around performance by the rookie. His shots don't want to drop on most nights, but Giddey always finds ways to make up for it with his work in other areas.
