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.
Payne (foot) said Tuesday that he had his walking boot removed two weeks ago, Erik Horne of The Oklahoman reports.
Payne, who underwent surgery to repair a Jones fracture in his right foot back in late July, seems to be progressing as the Thunder had anticipated following the procedure. Since shedding the boot, Payne has resumed shooting and running, perhaps putting him on course to return to full action at some point during training camp. Assuming he's able to steer clear of any setbacks over the next month and a half, Payne will open the regular season as the top backup to Russell Westbrook.
McGary has been suspended an additional 10 games to begin the 2016-17 season for non-compliance with the NBA's drug policy, The Vertical reports.
McGary had already been facing a five-game suspension for a violation of the policy back in July, so he'll now be ineligible for the first 15 games of the season. It's another setback for the former Michigan star, who faced a drug-related suspension in college prior to entering the draft. While he's played only sparingly over the last two seasons, McGary remains a relatively high-upside prospect, but it's unclear if the Thunder still consider him part of their long-term plans. Despite parting ways with Kevin Durant and Serge Ibaka over the summer, Oklahoma City has plenty of depth in the frontcourt, so it wouldn't be a surprise if GM Sam Presti explores the idea of moving McGary at some point.
