With this forgettable Mexico City visit behind him, he should fare better in Saturday's matchup with the badly struggling Grizzlies.

Apparently there is room for one more fantasy factor on the Oklahoma City roster.

Analysis: A disappointing fantasy line for the New Zealander after he posted 12 points, five steals and three blocks in Thursday's season opener against the Knicks. Of course, having to go up against Rudy Gobert surely factored into his reduced stats in this one. Adams should find Sunday's matchup with the Timberwolves a bit more favorable.
Oct. 22 7:19 PM PT8:19 PM MT9:19 PM CT10:19 PM ET2:19 GMT10:19 7:19 PM MST9:19 PM EST6:19 UAE (+1)04:1922:19 ET9:19 PM CTNaN:� - Steven Adams scored 17 points Sunday on 8-of-12 shooting as the Oklahoma City Thunder fell to the Minnesota Timberwolves 115-113.
