Nader has been recalled from the G-League for Thursday's game against the Rockets, Erik Horne of The Oklahoman reports. With Russell Westbrook (ankle) still sidelined, the Thunder will opt to have another player available. Nader has played six minutes in the NBA this season, recording one steal.
Nader was assigned to the G-League on Thursday. Nader has played six minutes across three games for the Thunder this season, totaling one steal. He'll look to see more run with the organization's G-League affiliate, the Oklahoma City Blue.
Nader (knee) logged full practices Friday and Sunday, Erik Horne of The Oklahoman reports. The report likely clears up any lingering concern about Nader's health heading into Tuesday's season opener against the Warriors after the sore left knee prevented him from playing in the preseason. Because Nader missed out on his opportunity to impress the coaching staff during the exhibition slate, however, it's not expected that he'll be included in the rotation to begin the campaign.
Nader (knee) has slowly increased in participation in practices, Erik Horne of The Oklahoman reports. Nader was limited throughout the preseason by a sore left knee and still isn't quite cleared for full practices. It sounds like he's slowly progressing and doing more at practice, but his lack of full 5-on-5 work brings his status into question for the regular-season opener Tuesday against the Warriors. Still, with another four or five days off for rest and recovery, there's a chance Nader is able to get back on the floor prior to that contest. Nader is unlikely to be viable fantasy option, even when he's healthy.
Nader (knee) is out Tuesday against Milwaukee, Erik Horne of The Oklahoman reports. Nader's lingering knee injury will keep him out for the Thunder's preseason finale. He should, therefore, be considered questionable for opening night.
