News: Jerrett (ankle) is not expected to play in Saturday's game against the Nuggets, The Oklahoman reports.
Impact: Jerret has missed the opening two games of the season and apparently won't have a shot to make his 2014-15 debut until at least Monday against the Nets. The 21-year-old isn't expected to have much time on the court at all this season, but the injury bug has hit the Thunder hard which may open up a very small role for Jerrett off the bench if he's able to recover in the next week or so.
Fri. Oct 31, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Westbrook (broken hand) will miss four-to-six weeks, the Oklahoman's Anthony Slater reports.
Impact: It's a similar injury to what Rajon Rondo suffered, and Rondo was able to return in four weeks after originally having a six-week timetable, so there's hope for Westbrook's owners that he will only be out a month. In the meantime, the Thunder's remaining rag-tag backcourt crew featuring a banged up Reggie Jackson (ankle) and Sebastian Telfair will attempt to fill the large portion of the offense vacated by Westbrook. Don't look for Westbrook to have the same value owners expected when they drafted him, as he is now on the same timetable as Kevin Durant, so he will likely be the second option for most of his remaining games this season.

News: Jones scored a career-high 32 points in a 93-90 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers on Thursday.
Impact: With Kevin Durant out and Russell Westbrook suffering a hand injury Thursday, someone will have to score for the Thunder. Jones might just be that guy.
Thu. Oct 30, 2014 | STATS
News: Coach Scott Brooks said Westbrook suffered a small fracture in his right hand in the second quarter of Thursday's loss to the Clippers.
Impact: Brooks said Westbrook would be reevaluated Friday. Westbrook missing significant time would obviously be devastating for Oklahoma City with Kevin Durant already out. It remains to be seen how long Westbrook will be sidelined, though.
Thu. Oct 30, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Jackson, when healthy, could start at point guard with Russell Westbrook's injury.
Impact: Following Thursday's game against the Clippers, it was announced Westbrook had a small fracture in his right hand. Although there is no timetable for his injury yet, if Jackson is able to return for his ankle injury, he'll presumably get the start. Sebastian Telfair played 38 minutes with Westbrook out for most of the game Thursday, but Jackson is the more talented player. He's usable in all formats if he's healthy.
Thu. Oct 30, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Westbrook has a small fracture in his right hand, the Oklahoman reports.
Impact: No timetable has been announced as of yet, but Rajon Rondo recently suffered a broken hand and was expected to miss six weeks of action after undergoing surgery. Rondo was able to return in just over four weeks, so until there's an official announcement on how long Westbrook will be out, managers should hold onto him. In the mean time, as long as Westbrook is sidelined, Reggie Jackson (ankle) should be a big part of the Thunder's offense. Unfortunately, Jackson is also sidelined with an injury at the moment, leaving Sebastian Telfair as the only healthy point guard on the roster at the moment.
Thu. Oct 30, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Roberson almost played the entire game for the Thunder on Thursday against the Clippers, scoring nine points (3-5 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 3-4 FT) and grabbing six boards.
Impact: This is the second game in a row that Roberson played in over 30 minutes. Reggie Jackson, Jeremy Lamb and Anthony Morrow all sat out with injuries, and Russell Westbrook also left Thursday's game with an injury. With the plethora of injuries for the Thunder, it'd be no surprise to see Roberson keep up these minutes for the time being.
Thu. Oct 30, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Telfair played for 38 minutes after Russell Westbrook left the game Thursday with an injury, scoring 11 points (2-9 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 6-8 FT) against the Clippers.
Impact: If Westbrook's injury keeps him out for an extended period of time, Telfair will be the starting point guard for the Thunder, at least until Reggie Jackson returns from his injury. Telfair could be worth a flier in some leagues given the volume of minutes he played without Westbrook.
Thu. Oct 30, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Perkins played his first minutes of the season for the Thunder on Thursday against the Clippers, failing to make a single field goal.
Impact: Although Perkins is healthy, Steven Adams has been named the starter at center. Perkins came off the bench, playing 19 minutes and scoring only three points (0-2 FG, 3-4 FT), though he did pull down six rebounds. Perkins will likely continue to come off the bench.
Thu. Oct 30, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Jones scored a career-high 32 points (10-17 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 9-11 FT) for the Thunder versus the Clippers.
Impact: With Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant out, Jones was the only real scoring option besides Serge Ibaka. Jones also had seven rebounds, three assists and a steal. If Westbrook's injury keeps him out for an extended period, Jones is worth a flier in most leagues. Someone is going to have to score for this team.
Thu. Oct 30, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Westbrook will not return to Thursday's game after suffering a right hand injury in the second quarter, The Oklahoman reports.
Impact: Westbrook went straight to the locker room after injuring his hand going up for a rebound. His official status was initially listed as questionable, but changed to out as the teams came out for the second half. He later returned to the bench with his hand wrapped in ice. The Thunder are already without one superstar in Kevin Durant among a plethora of other players, so losing Westbrook for an extended period of time could be devastating. The team should update his condition in the near future, and his status for Saturday's game could be in question.
Thu. Oct 30, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Westbrook left Thursday's game with a right hand injury and his return is questionable, The Oklahoman reports.
Impact: Westbrook left the game and went straight to the locker room rather than heading to the bench. The injury occurred as he went up for a rebound, and he left the game immediately after. The Thunder are already down one superstar with Kevin Durant out for an extended period of time, but luckily Westbrook's questionable status to return likely indicates the injury isn't too serious. The fact that it is on his shooting hand is a bit concerning, however.
Thu. Oct 30, 2014 | STATS
News: Westbrook scored 38 points in Wednesday's season opener, a 106-89 loss to Portland on Wednesday night.
Impact: The Thunder only suited up nine players. Most notably they were without reigning NBA MVP Kevin Durant, who had surgery for a fractured bone in his right foot this month and will likely be sidelined until December. Westbrook could have a number of high-scoring efforts in his absence.
Wed. Oct 29, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Westbrook scored 38 points (11-26 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 15-16 FT) in his first game without Kevin Durant.
Impact: Owners who drafted Westbrook should be very pleased seeing how many shots he attempted without Durant on the floor. Serge Ibaka and Lance Thomas were the only other players on the roster to attempt 10 or more shots Wednesday, and Westbrook had 26 points in the first half alone. With Durant out, owners can't necessarily expect 38 points each night, but they can expect the offense to run through Westbrook at all times.
Wed. Oct 29, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Roberson, who was dealing with a minor ankle injury, started in place of the injured Reggie Jackson at shooting guard and led the Thunder in minutes in a loss to the Trail Blazers Wednesday night.
Impact: Roberson only attempted four shots in the game, scoring six points. However, he did add seven rebounds, two assists and a steal. While Jeremy Lamb, Anthony Morrow and Jackson are all out, the Thunder will likely use Roberson and Russell Westbrook in the two guard spots.
Wed. Oct 29, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Jones started Wednesday night's opener against the Trail Blazers in place of Kevin Durant, scoring just three points (1-9 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 1-2 FT) in 31 minutes.
Impact: This was the Thunder's first game without Durant, and Jones started in his place. Jones was coming off of a knee injury, but couldn't get anything going, failing to record a single assist, steal or block in addition to his poor shooting night. However, without Anthony Morrow and Jeremy Lamb for the time being, Jones is the Thunder's best option at small forward. Once those guys return, Jones will likely see his role shrink.
Wed. Oct 29, 2014 | STATS
News: Jerrett is dealing with an ankle injury.
Impact: Jerrett shouldn't be on anyone's fantasy radar.
Wed. Oct 29, 2014 | STATS
News: Lamb is expected to miss at least the first two games of the season with a back injury.
Impact: The Thunder are hoping to see him debut sooner than later.
Wed. Oct 29, 2014 | STATS
News: Jackson is expected to miss at least the first two games of the season with an ankle injury.
Impact: While many were expecting big things from Jackson with Kevin Durant out, he'll have to wait a while before making his debut.
Tue. Oct 28, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Jackson (ankle) will miss at least the first two games of the season, Anthony Slater of The Oklahoman reports.
Impact: Jackson will not join the team on its season-opening, two-game road trip to Portland and Los Angeles, meaning his first opportunity to take the floor this season will come Saturday against Denver. Whenever he does return, Jackson will play a significant role off the bench, as the Thunder are as banged up as any team in the league heading into the season.
Tue. Oct 28, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Lamb (back) will miss at least the first two games of the season, Anthony Slater of The Oklahoman reports.
Impact: Neither Lamb nor Reggie Jackson (ankle) will travel with the team for its first two games in Portland and Los Angeles. Lamb, who sustained a back injury during Monday's practice, could play as early as Saturday, when the Thunder return home to face the Nuggets.
Tue. Oct 28, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Perkins (quad) will come off the bench to begin the season, Anthony Slater of The Oklahoman reports.
Impact: Coach Scott Brooks announced Tuesday that Steven Adams has won the starting job, which will push Perkins to the bench for the first time in four seasons. Perkins has started every game he's played in a Thunder uniform, but his effectiveness - particularly on offense - has tailed off over the past two years. The 29-year-old isn't much of a fantasy commodity, and his numbers - 3.4 points, 4.9 rebounds last season - probably won't be significantly impacted this season.
Tue. Oct 28, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Adams will open the season as the Thunder's starting center, Anthony Slater of The Oklahoman reports.
Impact: Coach Scott Brooks finally made the announcement following Tuesday's practice that Adams will take over the starting job previously held by Kendrick Perkins. It's long been speculated that Perkins would eventually move to the bench, as his effectiveness has waned in recent years. Adams proved last season that he's capable of excelling at both ends of the floor, and he especially provides more of an offensive threat than the slower Perkins. As a rookie last season, Adams averaged 3.3 points and 4.1 rebounds in 14.8 minutes. Those numbers figure to make a considerable leap in Year 2.
Mon. Oct 27, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Jerrett (ankle) will not play in Wednesday's season opener against the Blazers, Anthony Slater of The Oklahoman reports.
Impact: Jerrett continues to recover from the ankle injury that kept him out of action during the preseason. Little is known about his condition, but considering his fantasy value is about as minimal as it gets, the lack of information isn't a major concern.
Mon. Oct 27, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Lamb hurt his back in Monday's practice and is questionable for Wednesday's season opener, the Oklahoman's Darnell Mayberry reports.
Impact: He was recovering from a heel injury, and now that he has a back ailment, it's unlikely that he'll be at 100 percent if he is able to take the court out of necessity Wednesday, given the massive amount of injuries the Thunder have sustained during the preseason.
Mon. Oct 27, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Jackson twisted his right ankle during Monday's practice and is questionable for Wednesday's season opener, the Oklahoman's Darnell Mayberry reports.
Impact: He needed assistance from two people to limp into the Thunder's meeting room Monday, so saying he's questionable for Wednesday's game, may be a little optimistic. That said, the Thunder have more injured players than healthy players on the roster right now, so if Jackson can go, the Thunder will need him to give it a shot.
Sat. Oct 25, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Jones has a sore knee and did not practice Saturday, the Oklahoman's Darnell Mayberry reports.
Impact: It doesn't sound like anything serious, but owners should monitor his status leading up to the season opener.
Sat. Oct 25, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Roberson is dealing with a minor ankle injury, the Oklahoman's Darnell Mayberry reports.
Impact: Coach Scott Brooks offered up the fact that Roberson did not practice Saturday because of the ankle injury, but it doesn't appear serious. Monitor his status leading up to the season opener.
Fri. Oct 24, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Telfair played 43 minutes over the last two preseason games.
Impact: Telfair was dealing with a thumb sprain the past two weeks, but has played in the last five games for the Thunder without any setbacks. It's safe to say it shouldn't give him problems going forward.
Fri. Oct 24, 2014 | STATS
News: Morrow is expected to miss the start of the season due to a sprained left MCL. It's another tough blow to a Oklahoma City team already without Kevin Durant.
Impact: Morrow may be out for a couple of weeks. Expect Russell Westbrook to carry a heavy load early on for the Thunder.
Fri. Oct 24, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Morrow suffered a sprained MCL at practice Thursday and will miss the start of the regular season, the Oklahoman reports.
Impact: Morrow was poised to start at small forward to begin the season with Kevin Durant out, but with the recent MCL injury, he'll have to wait for his opportunity to show his new organization and teammates what he can do. Perry Jones will probably take over the starting small forward postion for the Thunder until either Durant or Morrow can return. The typical recovery time for this sort of injury is anywhere from four to six weeks, but we'll know more in the next few days.
Thu. Oct 23, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Lamb (heel) practiced Thursday and is expected to be ready for the regular season opener, Anthony Slater of The Oklahoman reports.
Impact: Lamb missed a pair of preseason games with a bruised heel but returned to practice Thursday and should be 100 percent for the season opener Wednesday in Portland. An excellent scorer, Lamb will be called upon to carry more of an offensive burden off the bench this season, particularly in the early-season absence of Kevin Durant.
Thu. Oct 23, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Perkins (quad) practiced Thursday and is expected to be ready for the regular season opener, Anthony Slater of The Oklahoman reports.
Impact: Perkins missed all of the preseason with a quad injury, but he returned to practice Thursday and will have about a week to get himself conditioned for the regular season. While Perkins projects to be in the starting lineup again this season, second-year forward/center Steven Adams is sure to see plenty of minutes.
Thu. Oct 23, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Jackson (wrist) practiced Thursday and is expected to be ready for the regular season opener, Anthony Slater of The Oklahoman reports.
Impact: Jackson suffered a wrist injury nearly two weeks ago and missed a handful of preseason games. He was still experiencing discomfort earlier this week, but a full practice Thursday indicates he'll be ready to go Wednesday against the Blazers.
Tue. Oct 21, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Collison (ankle) will make his preseason debut for the Thunder on Tuesday, the Oklahoman's Anthony Slater reports.
Impact: He will likely be the first big man off the bench, as Serge Ibaka and Steven Adams continue to start in the frontcourt. Consider Collison healthy moving forward.
Tue. Oct 21, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Jackson (wrist) will not play in Tuesday's preseason game, the Oklahoman's Anthony Slater reports.
Impact: Coach Scott Brooks said Jackson didn't feel comfortable after Monday's workout, but expects him to be ready for the season opener.
Tue. Oct 21, 2014 | STATS
News: Durant says he has been antsy since finding out he will miss the early part of the season with a broken bone in his right foot. The reigning MVP spoke to the media Tuesday for the first time since the injury. He had surgery on Oct. 16 and will be re-evaluated in about five weeks. He rolled into the media session on a scooter with the lower half of his right leg in a cast.
Impact: Durant says he's never had surgery, so he doesn't know how he will respond to it, but he won't rush his return. He said the situation presents an opportunity for his teammates to grow, and he feels that the team will be better off in the long run as a result.
Mon. Oct 20, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Ibaka made his preseason debut over the weekend, appearing in Friday's game against the Raptors, as well as Sunday's matchup with the Timberwolves.
Impact: As expected, Ibaka made his preseason debut after battling a sprained ankle for most of camp. Coach Scott Brooks limited his minutes, holding him to 21 against the Raptors and 25 against the T'Wolves. Ibaka struggled from the field (4-12 FG) Friday, finishing with eight points and six rebounds. He found his stride Sunday, however, connecting on 5-of-7 field goal attempts and finishing with 12 points, six rebounds and two blocks. Ibaka also converted his only three-point attempt.
Mon. Oct 20, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Collison (ankle) was a limited participant in Monday's practice, but he could make his preseason debut Tuesday, the Oklahoman's Anthony Slater reports.
Impact: It doesn't sound like Collison is in jeopardy of missing the start of the regular season, but even so, he won't approach 30 minutes per game, and can therefore be left alone in shallower leagues.
Mon. Oct 20, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Jackson (wrist) was a full participant in Monday's practice and could play in Tuesday's exhibition, the Oklahoman's Anthony Slater reports.
Impact: There seems little doubt at this point that Jackson will be healthy for the Oct. 29 season opener, after dealing with a minor wrist injury last week.
Oct 19, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Jerrett (ankle) will not play in Sunday's preseason game against the Timberwolves.
Impact: Jerrett had a rough go of it during his rookie season as he was only able to play in 37 games for the Thunder at 7.7 minutes averaged per contest. Things won't likely change during his second year in the league as he's already dealing with a prolonged ankle injury and has too many players ahead of him on the depth chart.
Oct 19, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Collison (ankle) will not play in Sunday's preseason game against the Timberwolves, the Star Tribune reports.
Impact: Collison dealt with knee issues during the offseason and has now spent training camp nursing an ankle injury. His inability to get on the court is certainly concerning, although the aging veteran should only be owned in the very deepest of leagues that are alright with players who only get on the court for 10-15 minutes a game.
Oct 19, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Perkins (quadriceps) will not play against the Timberwolves in Sunday's preseason game, the Star Tribune reports.
Impact: Perkins has been dealing with a quad injury since late September and consequentially has had an unproductive training camp. However, the 29-year-old is an aging veteran that hardly needs to go through training camp to be ready for the start of the regular season. With the capable and young Steven Adams nipping at the heels of Perkins, it's still unclear who will end up being the Thunder's starting center to open the season on Oct. 29 against Portland.
Oct 19, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Jackson (wrist) won't play in Sunday's preseason game against the Timberwolves, the Star Tribune reports.
Impact: Despite not being able to play Sunday, Jackson still seems poised to be ready for the start of the regular season on Oct. 29 against Portland. Jackson will have one last preseason game to test out his ailing wrist when the Thunder face the Jazz on Tuesday.
Oct 19, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Lamb is dealing with a left heel contusion and won't be available for Sunday's preseason game against the Timberwolves, The Oklahoman reports.
Impact: Lamb's injury isn't considered to be serious but the Thunder will be cautious with their 22-year-old shooting guard. His next opportunity to get on the court before the regular season starts will be Tuesday against the Jazz.
Fri. Oct 17, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Jackson (wrist) won't play Friday, but he's getting close to returning to the court, the Oklahoman's Anthony Slater reports.
Impact: He went through a full workout before Friday's game, and it seems like he'll be ready to go for the start of the regular season. It's pretty clear that he will open the season as the team's sixth man, but he should be the fourth Thunder player off the board in fantasy drafts.
Fri. Oct 17, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Adams could be the favorite to open the season as the Thunder's starting center, the Oklahoman's Anthony Slater reports.
Impact: He is averaging 17 points, 6.5 rebounds, 1.8 blocks and 1.8 steals while shooting 77 percent from the field in four preseason games, so it's pretty clear that he's a better player than Kendrick Perkins at this stage in each player's career. Adams' biggest flaw is his propensity to get in foul trouble. He picked up 11 fouls in his first two games of the preseason, but has just four in his last two, so perhaps it's getting drilled into the young center that in order to play big minutes, he needs to clean up his defense. Adams is worth a pick in most category leagues, given his upside in all the relevant big-man stats.
Fri. Oct 17, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Morrow may open the season as the Thunder's starting small forward, the Oklahoman's Anthony Slater reports.
Impact: He is expected to return from a minor ankle injury Friday and would start at small forward. While Perry Jones offers superior size and athleticism at the three, the Thunder may value Morrow's experience and long-range shooting. The big backcourt of Russell Westbrook and Andre Roberson should help make up for the 6-foot-5 Morrow's lack of size at the three, and he should offer fantasy owners significant three-point shooting in Kevin Durant's absence through the first month or so of the regular season.
Fri. Oct 17, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Ibaka (ankle) will make his preseason debut Friday and is expected to get 15-20 minutes, the Oklahoman's Anthony Slater reports.
Impact: This is excellent news, and it seems like Ibaka will be at full strength for the start of the regular season.
Thu. Oct 16, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Morrow will miss Thursday's preseason game against the Pelicans due to a left ankle injury, The Oklahoman reports.
Impact: Morrow's ankle injury is not considered serious and the sharpshooter could very well return for Friday's tilt versus Toronto. In wake of Kevin Durant (foot) being sidelined, Morrow is expected to help fill the Thunder's perimeter shooting void, making him of value in corresponding fantasy categories.
Thu. Oct 16, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Durant (foot) underwent successful surgery Thursday and will be re-evaluated in six weeks, Darnell Mayberry of The Oklahoman reports.
Impact: As expected, Durant underwent surgery to repair a stress fracture in his right foot. He'll be re-evaluated in six weeks, which places him out until at least the end of November. Still, Durant remains one of the top fantasy options, and his value shouldn't be greatly diminished, assuming he returns shortly after that six-week timetable.
Thu. Oct 16, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Westbrook (rest) will not play Thursday against New Orleans, Darnell Mayberry of The Oklahoman reports.
Impact: It's simply a night off for Westbrook, who figures to play big minutes and carry a heavy workload when the regular season opens, particularly given the absence of Kevin Durant (leg).
Sun. Oct 12, 2014 | STATS
News: The Oklahoma City Thunder say star forward Kevin Durant had successful surgery Thursday to address a bone fracture in his right foot and will be out at least six weeks. General manager Sam Presti said the procedure was performed at a clinic in Charlotte, North Carolina, after the team, Durant and his representatives "jointly decided" surgery was needed.
Impact: Durant will be re-evaluated in six weeks. The reigning NBA MVP was diagnosed over the weekend with a "Jones fracture," a broken bone at the base of his small toe. The Thunder open the season Oct. 29 at Portland. A six-week absence could have Durant back for the start of December, with about 65 games remaining.
