Cleared for Game 4 Adams (knee) doesn't appear on the injury report ahead of Monday's Game 4 matchup with the Rockets, Erik Gee of SI.com reports.
Impact Coach Billy Donovan suggested Sunday that Adams was "fine" after suffering a bruised right knee in the fourth quarter of the Thunder's Game 3 victory; the injury kept him sidelined for the overtime period. While Adams was resting, the Thunder used Danilo Gallinari as a small-ball center rather than deploying Adams' top backup, Nerlens Noel. From a statistical standpoint, Adams hasn't been hindered much by playing against the smaller, faster Houston lineups, as he's averaging 10.3 points, 12.0 boards and 2.3 assists in 31.0 minutes per game over the first three contests of the series.
