Ferguson is starting at shooting guard for Tuesday's season opener against the Warriors, Connor Letourneau of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
With both Russell Westbrook (knee) and Andre Roberson (knee) out, the Thunder are thin in the backcourt. Ferguson will draw the start as a result. When seeing over 20 minutes last season, he averaged 7.0 points and 2.1 rebounds.
Ferguson (concussion) was cleared for contact over the weekend, Brett Dawson of The Athletic reports.
The second-year wing had been in the league's concussion protocol for several days, but he passed his final round of tests on Sunday and was able to practice in full capacity with the team. Given that Andre Roberson (knee) won't be available for Tuesday's season-opener against the Warriors, Ferguson looks to be in position to start in his place at shooting guard for the time being.
Ferguson remains in the NBA's concussion protocol, Erik Horne of The Oklahoman reports.
Ferguson has been sidelined for just under a week now, which included him missing the team's preseason finale Tuesday. He'll still have to progress through a series of tests in order to be cleared, with the final one being a controlled practice. The Thunder don't kick off the regular season until Tuesday against the Warriors, so Ferguson sill has four or five days to get back into the swing of things and cleared for practice. That said, the uncertainty surrounding head injuries should give him a questionable designation heading into the opener. Hamidou Diallo started the preseason finale at shooting guard and could begin the year in the top unit if Ferguson can't give it a go.
Ferguson (concussion) has officially been ruled out for Tuesday's preseason finale against the Bucks, Brett Dawson of The Athletic reports.
Ferguson was placed in the NBA's concussion protocol earlier Monday, so this was the expectation all along. With Tuesday's contest concluding the preseason slate, Ferguson will now look towards getting back to full strength prior the regular-season opener Oct. 16 against the Warriors. With Ferguson sidelined, in addition to Andre Roberson's (kneecap) absence, the Thunder will likely have to rely on some combination of Alex Abrines, Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot and Raymond Felton at shooting guard for the time being.
Ferguson has been placed in the NBA's concussion protocol, Erik Horne of The Oklahoman reports.
Ferguson was forced to leave Sunday's exhibition early with concussion-like symptoms and he's now been placed in the league's protocol after additional testing confirmed the diagnosis. That means Ferguson will now have to pass through a handful of different tests before being cleared for a return, with the final being a controlled practice. With the Thunder taking on the Bucks this Tuesday, it seems highly likely that Ferguson will be unable to take the court for that contest. That said, tentatively consider him questionable until an official update is provided.
