Top KZ Okpala News

  • Thunder's KZ Okpala: Waived by OKC

    Okpala (wrist) was waived by the Thunder on Friday, Andrew Schlecht of The Athletic reports.

    This news clears up the surprising reports of Okpala not being on Friday's injury report -- it turns out he wasn't on the team anymore. It's possible Okpala's wrist issue is, in fact, too much of a hindrance for the Thunder to hang onto him for the remainder of the season. More information regarding the confusing situation -- the Thunder gave up a second-round pick in the trade -- may arrive eventually.

  • Thunder's KZ Okpala: Not listed on injury report

    Okpala (wrist) is not listed on the Thunder's injury report ahead of Friday's contest against the 76ers, Rylan Stiles of BricktownBuckets.com reports.

    Okpala hasn't taken the court since Dec. 28 due to a wrist injury, but in a surprising turn of events, the third-year forward appears to be trending towards being available Friday. If he does suit up, Okpala would be making his Thunder debut after being traded by the Heat in exchange for a 2026 second-round pick. However, even if he is available, it's unlikely he garners a big enough role to crack fantasy relevancy.

  • Thunder's KZ Okpala: Traded to Oklahoma City

    Okpala (wrist) was traded from the Heat to the Thunder on Wednesday in exchange for a 2026 second-round pick.

    Okpala hasn't taken the court since Dec. 28 due to a wrist injury, and it's not yet clear when he'll be able to return in spite of his day-to-day designation from the Heat. However, he'll presumably be unavailable for Oklahoma City's game against the Raptors on Wednesday. It's not yet clear whether the Thunder will keep Okpala, Joe Mussatto of The Oklahoman reports. If he remains with the organization, he should provide an additional option off the bench once healthy after he averaged 3.7 points and 2.0 rebounds in 11.6 minutes per game across 21 appearances to begin the season.
