Oklahoma City Thunder
2022 Fantasy Outlook
One of the most promising young wing players in The Association, Dort enjoyed a career year during the 2021-22 season -- his third campaign in the NBA. He averaged 17.2 points and 4.2 rebounds per game, both career-best numbers, and he supplemented that with 1.7 assists, 0.9 steals and 0.4 blocks per contest. He also posted career-best numbers in field goal percentage (40.4 percent) and free throw percentage (84.3 percent), though the durability remains a concern. He played in 51 games, and while his first two years in the league were during the shortened seasons due to the pandemic, it's worth noting that he hasn't played more than 52 games in any of the three years he's spent in the league so far. Regardless of those concerns, Dort is a solid pickup in most formats since he's widely expected to be one of the top contributors for the Thunder, especially now that Chet Holmgren will miss the entire season due to a foot injury. He could be in line for another strong year worthy of a late-round selection in standard leagues. Read Past Outlooks
$Signed a four-year, $64.78 million contract with the Thunder in July of 2022. Contract includes $17.72 million team option for 2026-27.

November 28, 2022
Dort had 14 points (6-13 FG, 2-5 3Pt), three rebounds, five assists and two steals over 32 minutes during Monday's 105-101 loss to the Pelicans.
ANALYSIS
Dort was held to three points on 1-for-4 shooting Saturday against the Rockets, but he looked much improved Monday as he contributed across the board and put together his best passing night since Nov. 5 against Milwaukee (seven assists). The 23-year-old has scored in double figures in four of his last five matchups and is averaging 13.7 points through 21 games this season.

Expected to play Wednesday
FOklahoma City Thunder
October 16, 2022
Dort is dealing with a quadriceps injury but is expected to be available for Opening Night, Joe Mussatto of The Oklahoman reports.
ANALYSIS
Dort is expected to be one of the Thunder's most prolific players during the 2022-23 regular season, and there is no question his availability represents a huge plus for the team. If healthy, expect Dort to operate as the starting guard next to Shai-Gilgeous Alexander, who is also expected to be available for Opening Night despite a knee injury.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2021
2020
Dort really broke onto the scene in the 2020 bubble playoffs when he was the player primarily tasked with guarding James Harden. Dort was also left alone from three but kept launching, going 13-for-50 (26.0%) in the six-game series. Despite the struggles, it became clear that the Thunder would feature Dort more in 2020-21. That happened, with the sophomore wing averaging 14.0 points, 3.6 rebounds, 1.7 assists and 1.3 combined steals-plus-blocks in 29.7 minutes. Most notably, he made strides as a three-point shooter, hitting 2.2 per game at a passable 34.3 percent. He also became marginally more confident finding his own shot and dishing to teammates, though that's hardly the focus of his game. Dort is one of the better defenders in the NBA, and it's likely his offense will always lag behind. That said, there will continue to be plenty of opportunities for Dort to expand his game while with the deep-rebuild Thunder. The 22-year-old should continue starting at shooting guard and seeing roughly 30 minutes per game. He ranked just outside of the top 200 last season, but fantasy managers shouldn't be surprised if he can creep closer to the top 150 mark.
Dort went undrafted out of Arizona State, though he found a meaningful role with Oklahoma City in his first NBA campaign. The first-year wing averaged 6.8 points and 2.3 boards across 22.8 minutes as a key contributor off the bench in the Thunder's surprisingly successful season. Dort started the season with the Thunder's G-League affiliate but latched on to the parent club in December. Dort alternated time between the NBA and G-League for the next month before becoming a full-time starter at the end of January. Dort saw plenty of run in the playoffs, and he capped off the season with a season-high 30 points in the Thunder's Game 7 loss to the Rockets in the first round. Dort's late-season surge in the scoring department was due to multiple injuries in the Thunder's lineup, and he's not expected to take on a substantial offensive workload in 2020-21. Dort isn't an adept shooter, but he's made his bones as a defender, particularly one who isn't afraid to guard the opposing team's best player. Dort should be a full-time starter for the rebuilding Thunder this season, and he could be drafted as a specialist for defensive categories in upcoming fantasy drafts.
