Top Alperen Sengun News

  • Rockets' Alperen Sengun: Bounces back with big game

    Sengun supplied 25 points (11-15 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 3-6 FT), eight rebounds, four assists and two steals over 32 minutes before fouling out of Wednesday's 130-125 loss to the Grizzlies.

    Sengun missed Monday's loss to Golden State due to illness but returned to the court Wednesday without any restrictions. Aside from the poor shooting from the free-throw line, Sengun delivered an excellent all-around performance before fouling out with just 1:26 remaining in the fourth quarter. The second-year pro should continue to play a big role down the stretch for the Rockets, who are looking to build for the future.

  • Rockets' Alperen Sengun: Not listed on injury report

    Sengun (illness) is not on the injury report ahead of Wednesday's game in Memphis.

    An illness forced Sengun to the sidelines Monday, but it appears it'll only be a one-game absence for the big man. With Sengun back in action Wednesday evening, expect Tari Eason to return to the second unit, where his minutes will likely be reduced to the mid-20s. Usman Garuba also figures to see a reduction in minutes.

  • Rockets' Alperen Sengun: Records double-double

    Sengun accumulated 16 points (6-9 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 3-4 FT), 10 rebounds, four assists and one steal in 28 minutes during Saturday's 122-110 victory over San Antonio.

    Sengun was active on both ends of the court Saturday and posted his third double-double in the last six games.

    Sengun supplied 17 points (8-16 FG, 1-2 FT), 10 rebounds and five assists across 25 minutes during Sunday's 131-114 loss to Portland.

    Sengun posted his first double-double since Feb. 1 and dished out at least five assists for a second straight game. It was a nice bounce-back performance for the talented big man, who came into the contest having made six of his last 22 field-goal attempts and totaled just 13 points over his last two contests. Despite the shaky two-game stretch, Sengun has still been a solid fantasy asset in February, posting 12.8 points, 8.1 rebounds, 4.6 assists and 1.2 steals-plus-blocks in 28.7 minutes over 10 appearances.

    Sengun struggled from the field and saved his scoring numbers thanks to his efficiency from the charity stripe, but he still posted a solid fantasy line with multiple assists and was just two boards shy of another double-double. One of the most versatile big men in the league, Sengun is averaging 14.3 points, 7.3 rebounds, 5.0 assists and a combined 1.6 steals-plus-blocks per game across six February appearances.

    Sengun amassed 18 points (7-11 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 3-4 FT), nine rebounds, 11 assists, one block and one steal over 35 minutes during Wednesday's 130-128 loss to the Kings.

He entered the break with nine points on 4-of-7 shooting from the field to go along with seven dimes and six boards, three of which came on the offensive end. The center chipped in another nine points and three assists in the second half, though he added just one more rebound to fall one board shy of a triple-double. His 11 assists on the evening marked a team and season high, and he's now scored at least 15 points in nine of his last 12 games.

  • Rockets' Alperen Sengun: Solid stat line Monday

    Sengun provided 15 points (4-10 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 6-6 FT), seven rebounds and seven assists in 36 minutes during Monday's 140-120 loss to Sacramento.

    Sengun struggled more than usual from the field, but he salvaged his night with a perfect showing from the free-throw line, doubling up his season average in assists. Aside from a 15-minute appearance in the Rockets' previous game Saturday against the Thunder, in which he battled early foul trouble and then didn't get back on the court in garbage time in a blowout loss, Sengun has now reached the 30-minute mark in each of his last 10 outings. The increased playing time has allowed Sengun to emerge as one of the more valuable fantasy centers in both points and categories leagues.
