Singler was held without a point (0-5 FG, 0-4 3Pt) in his first start of the season Monday against the Grizzlies. He played 12 minutes. Singler didn't help himself by shooting poorly from the field, but his four fouls were likely more responsible for his limited time. Most of the minutes reserved for the absent Andre Roberson (illness) and Kevin Durant (hamstring) ended up going to Dion Waiters (38 minutes), and that figures to remain the case if either player ends up missing further time.
Singler will start Monday's game at Memphis, Anthony Slater of The Oklahoman reports. Singler will enter the starting lineup for an ill Andre Roberson, who, along with Kevin Durant (hamstring), is sitting out Monday. As a result, Singler could approach his per-36 production of 7.4 points, 5.4 rebounds, 1.4 steals, and 1.4 three-pointers with expanded run.
Thunder forward Kyle Singler (knee) is officially out Friday night, Anthony Slater of The Oklahoman reports. Singler bumped knees during the previous preseason contest and is likely dealing with minor bruising. As a precaution, the team will sit him, but the injury doesn't appear to be serious.
The Thunder re-signed forward Kyle Singler to a multi-year contract, the team announced Thursday.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed, but previous reports indicated the contract was worth $25 million over five years. Singler averaged 6.0 points and 2.4 rebounds in 80 games last season.
