Payne had surgery to repair a Jones fracture in the same foot earlier this offseason, but this latest injury is reportedly to a different portion of his right foot. He suffered the injury while driving to the basket against teammate Josh Huestis during Tuesday's scrimmage. Payne has yet to be given any sort of timetable for a return, but based on the nature of the injury, it's reasonable to expect the second-year point guard to be sidelined multiple weeks, if not months, taking him out of the mix for opening night. With Payne out of commission, Ronnie Price is expected to settle in as the backup point guard to Russell Westbrook, while Semaj Christon's chances of making the team go up dramatically.
Payne was finally nearing a return to full strength after spending the offseason recovering from surgery he had performed to address a Jones fracture in his right foot. The ankle sprain is to the same foot he had surgery on, so it is a bit concerning moving forward. However, we'll likely have to wait for more details in the coming few days before having a better understanding of a potential absence.
Payne was a full participant to open up training camp, as he's completely recovered from July surgery to repair a Jones fracture in his right foot. The Thunder are going to push him into action right away in their scrimmage on Tuesday, which means they don't appear to be worried about any sort of setback. It's only further confirmation that Payne will be healthy going into his second NBA season, where he's slated to see a larger role as Russell Westbrook's primary backup at point guard.
Caruso signed a training camp deal with the Thunder on Friday.
Caruso is an undrafted free agent out of Texas A&M who finished his collegiate career as the school's leader in assists and steals. However, his chances are slim of making the Thunder's final 15-man roster.
