Oklahoma City Thunder guard Theo Maledon (foot) has been removed from the injury report ahead of Friday's game against the Utah Jazz. It sounds like Maledon will return, but Luguentz Dort (rest) and Ty Jerome (calf) are expected to be sidelined. That being said, Maledon is likely going to be in for a big game as OKC attempts to not get completely blown out. He could be worth a look as a possible cheap DFS option on Friday.
Oklahoma City Thunder point guard Theo Maledon (foot) and small forward Aleksej Pokusevski (knee) have been deemed questionable to play in Sunday's game versus Sacramento. Maledon has held down starting PG duties for OKC since Shai Gilgeous-Alexander went down, but he has struggled mightily from the field during his rookie season. Much of the same can be said for Pokusevski, who is shooting a whopping 32.5 percent overall on the year, including 25.9 percent from behind the arc. For season-long leagues in which shooting percentage is not a consideration, Maledon and Pokusevski stand to have sizable appeal over the final week. Check back prior to tip-off to get the final word on the duo's respective statuses.
Oklahoma City Thunder guard Theo Maledon rolled to 25 points on 9-for-18 shooting in Wednesday's home loss to the Hornets, going 3-for-10 from downtown and 4-for-4 at the foul line. He logged a team-high 36 minutes and had five rebounds, five assists and two blocks with six turnovers. The 19-year-old rookie has improved throughout the season, and with a bunch of guys currently missing for OKC, Maledon carries a big load on the offensive end. He can be inconsistent at times but the potential for big performances is there. Maledon started the month with a 33-point eruption against a strong Phoenix team, so putting points on the boards against a struggling Cleveland side on Thursday doesn't look like a tough task for him.
Oklahoma City Thunder guard Theo Maledon went off for a career-high 33 points in Friday's loss to Phoenix. Maledon was a model of efficiency, shooting 10-for-18 from the field, 5 of 7 from deep, and 8 of 10 from the free-throw line while chipping in five rebounds, three assists, and a steal in 31 minutes. The 19-year-old was already seeing an increased workload with Shai Gilgeous-Alexander (foot) sidelined- but the recent absences of Luguentz Dort (head) and Darius Bazley (shoulder) have opened up even more touches in the Thunder offense, which Maledon seized on Friday. With Gilgeous-Alexander expected to be out until at least mid-April, Maledon may very well have more games like this one.
