  • Thunder's Dario Saric: Posts double-double as reserve

    Saric totaled 14 points (5-10 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 10 rebounds, one assist, two blocks and one steal across 23 minutes during Thursday's 114-98 victory over the Jazz.

    Saric posted his first double-double since Feb. 3 against the Celtics, a contest he started and played 30 minutes in. The veteran big man also tied his season high with two blocks, a mark he hasn't reached since Dec. 2.

  • Thunder's Dario Saric: Plays 19 minutes in loss

    Saric finished Tuesday's 136-125 loss to the Warriors with five points (1-3 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-4 FT), four rebounds and one steal across 19 minutes.

    Saric has worked his way back into the rotation over the past two games, totaling 13 points, six rebounds, one assist and one steal over 33 minutes. The veteran's role remains too limited to make much of a fantasy impact, but his elevated playing time meant fewer minutes for Jaylin Williams.

  • Thunder's Dario Saric: Efficient effort versus Warriors

    Saric contributed 14 points (6-8 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 1-1 FT), five rebounds, one assist and one steal across 15 minutes during Tuesday's 137-128 victory over the Warriors.

    Saric finished in double figures in the scoring column for the fourth time in the last five games after failing to reach double digits in the three games prior to that. Surprisingly, he continues to reach the threshold on limited playing time, logging 17 or fewer minutes in each of the last four tilts. Saric should continue to hoist shots frequently as a reserve, but he's connecting on 67.6 percent of his shots over his recent hot streak, so there's likely some regression in the scoring column on the way unless his playing time picks up.

  • Thunder's Dario Saric: Drops season-high 21 points

    Saric closed Tuesday's 123-117 loss to the Kings with 21 points (7-11 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 5-5 FT), eight rebounds and two assists in 27 minutes.

    Saric was terrific in Tuesday's loss, scoring a season-high 21 points off the bench. As with just about every Thunder player, his role is unpredictable from one night to the next, meaning a performance like this is hard to get behind. There is no reason to be adding him based on this effort alone, although he is a player to watch in case he somehow carves out a consistent role down the stretch.

  • Thunder's Dario Saric: Turns in strong per-minute numbers

    Saric delivered 12 points (4-6 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 3-3 FT), five rebounds and one steal across 14 minutes in Wednesday's 133-96 win over the Rockets.

    Making his Thunder debut, Saric was able to make most of his modest bench role, but Oklahoma City's ever-changing frontcourt rotation makes it tough to discern whether the veteran big man will have the opportunity to consistently replicate this sort of performance. Saric's role will likely be worth tracking over the next handful of games before a firmer determination can be made regarding whether he's a reliable pickup in 14-team leagues or deeper.

  • Thunder's Dario Saric: Left off injury report

    Saric isn't listed on the Thunder's injury report ahead of Monday's game agains the Pelicans.

    After being acquired from the Suns on Thursday, Saric sat out the Thunder's 138-129 win over the Trail Blazers on Friday. Now that Saric has gotten the chance to practice with his new squad at least once, he could be incorporated in the rotation Monday in his Thunder debut. Even if he's used off the bench, Saric likely won't be in line for significant minutes.

  • Thunder's Dario Saric: Won't play Friday

    Saric (coach's decision) is out for Friday's game versus Portland, Joe Mussatto of The Oklahoman reports.

    The Thunder acquired Saric from Phoenix on Thursday in exchange for Darius Bazley and a 2029 second-round pick. Once available to make his Oklahoma City debut, Saric will compete for reserve minutes in the frontcout. His next chance to make his first appearance with the Thunder will arrive Monday versus the Pelicans.

  • Suns' Dario Saric: Dealt to Oklahoma City

    The Suns traded Saric to the Thunder for Darius Bazley and a second-round pick, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    Saric averaged 5.8 points, 3.8 rebounds and 1.5 assists in 14.4 minutes across 37 games for the Suns this season. His departure will likely open up playing time for Jock Landale and Bismack Biyombo in Phoenix. Saric will likely compete for rotation minutes in the Thunder's bench unit.

  • Suns' Dario Saric: Back to bench Saturday

    Saric is not in the starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Pistons.

    Saric accumulated 14 points (5-13 FG, 4-7 3Pt), 13 rebounds and three assists across 30 minutes during Friday's 106-94 victory over the Celtics, but he heads back to the bench with Cameron Johnson (knee) being available and in the starting unit. Saric is averaging 4.4 points and 3.5 rebounds across 11.1 minutes per game when coming off the bench this season.

  • Suns' Dario Saric: Records double-double Friday

    Saric accumulated 14 points (5-13 FG, 4-7 3Pt), 13 rebounds and three assists across 30 minutes during Friday's 106-94 victory over the Celtics.

    Saric got the starting nod in place of Cameron Johnson (knee), and while he wasn't efficient from the field, he still ended with one of Phoenix's better scoring totals, also notching his first double-double of the campaign. The veteran has scored in double digits in five of his last seven outings, and he could remain in the starting lineup if Johnson can't go against the Pistons on Saturday in the second half of a back-to-back set.

  • Suns' Dario Saric: Gets starting nod

    Saric is in the starting five for Friday's game versus the Celtics.

    Saric will replace Cameron Johnson (knee) in the starting lineup Friday. The 28-year-old big man is averaging 8.5 points, 4.2 rebounds and 2.5 assists in 20.1 minutes across his previous 11 starts this season.

  • Suns' Dario Saric: Impresses off bench

    Saric ended with 19 points (6-9 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 4-4 FT), eight rebounds, three assists and one block over 24 minutes during Tuesday's 128-97 win over the Hornets.

    Saric led the Phoenix bench with 19 points with the help of three triples on four tries. He also registered eight rebounds for a second straight game. Saric has notably received a heavier workload in his last two contests, logging 21 and 24 minutes, respectively, which is well above his season average of 13.8 minutes per matchup.

  • Suns' Dario Saric: Produces in move to bench

    Saric finished with 14 points (4-5 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 6-7 FT), eight rebounds, four assists and three steals across 21 minutes in Sunday's 112-110 win over the Grizzlies.

    After starting in each of the past seven games, Saric was moved to the bench with Chris Paul (hip) and Cameron Johnson (rest) returning to the lineup. Considering Saric had received just eight minutes in both of the Suns' past two contests, he looked like a logical candidate to move out of the rotation entirely, but he instead saw an uptick in playing time while Duane Washington (zero minutes) and Ish Wainright (three minutes) were essentially cut out of Phoenix's second unit. Based on how he performed Sunday, Saric may have extended his leash in head coach Monty Williams' rotation, but the 28-year-old still appears at risk of losing playing time once players like Deandre Ayton (illness), Devin Booker (groin), Landry Shamet (foot) and Cameron Payne (foot) make their returns from injury.

  • Suns' Dario Saric: Produces across board as starter

    Saric finished with 12 points (4-9 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT), seven rebounds and five assists across 23 minutes in Monday's 136-106 loss to the Grizzlies.

    Though he was a minus-17 during his time on the court, Saric contributed a decent stat line in the blowout loss. While starting in each of his last six appearances, Saric has posted averages of 10.0 points, 5.0 rebounds, 3.0 assists, 1.5 three-pointers and 1.0 steals in 23.7 minutes per game while shooting 52.3 percent from the floor, numbers that give him a degree of utility in 14-team leagues or deeper. However, Saric is a prime candidate to lose out on playing time as soon as the Suns get one or two of their injured rotation players back in the fold -- Cameron Johnson (knee) and Chris Paul (hip) appear to be the closest to returning.

  • Suns' Dario Saric: Nears double-double in win

    Saric racked up 19 points (7-11 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT), nine rebounds, seven assists and one steal across 30 minutes during Tuesday's 125-113 victory over Golden State.

    Saric was limited to three points, four rebounds, two assists and two steals in Sunday's start against the Cavaliers despite playing 26 minutes, but he was much more efficient Tuesday and came within one rebound of his first double-double of the season. He's played double-digit minutes in four of his last five appearances and has averaged 8.2 points, 3.8 rebounds and 2.8 assists in 20.8 minutes per game during that time.

  • Suns' Dario Saric: Gets starting nod

    Saric is in the starting lineup for Sunday's game versus the Cavaliers.

    Saric will start alongside Deandre Ayton as the Suns opt to go big with Chris Paul (hip) out. Saric is averaging 8.8 points, 3.5 rebounds and 2.0 assists in 20.5 minutes across his four previous starts this season.
