  • Thunder's Shai Gilgeous-Alexander: Questionable Tuesday

    Gilgeous-Alexander is questionable for Tuesday's game against the Hornets due to a left ankle sprain.

    Gilgeous-Alexander tweaked his ankle on a drive to the hoop during Sunday's game in Portland, and while he was able to finish that game, it appears the ankle swelled up on him on the trip back to OKC. It wouldn't be shocking to see SGA skip the first game of a back-to-back against the 25-51 Hornets, and if he does hit the sidelines, that would likely result in a start for Isaiah Joe and extended minutes for Aaron Wiggins and Tre Mann.

  • Thunder's Shai Gilgeous-Alexander: Drops 31 points in win

    Gilgeous-Alexander accumulated 31 points (9-17 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 13-15 FT), two rebounds, three assists and four steals over 35 minutes during Sunday's 118-112 victory over the Trail Blazers.

    Gilgeous-Alexander posted an efficient shooting night and got to the charity stripe with ease. This is the fourth time in 10 March appearances that he's attempted double-digit free throws. Gilgeous-Alexander has now put up 30 or more points in eight of his last 10 matchups.

  • Thunder's Shai Gilgeous-Alexander: Ties for team lead in scoring

    Gilgeous-Alexander registered 27 points (9-22 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 8-9 FT), five rebounds, eight assists, one block and one steal in 36 minutes during Friday's 116-111 loss to the Lakers.

    Gilgeous-Alexander is dealing with an abdominal strain, but it didn't prevent him from taking the court in a critical game against Los Angeles. The star point guard managed to tie for the team lead with 27 points, though his 9-for-22 mark from the field was subpar by his standard. Gilgeous-Alexander added a team-high eight assists in the loss, his highest mark since he dished eight dimes the last time he faced the Lakers on Feb. 7.

  • Thunder's Shai Gilgeous-Alexander: Cleared for Friday

    Gilgeous-Alexander (abdominal strain) is available for Friday's game against the Lakers.

    This is the second night of a back-to-back set, but with the Thunder looking to make a playoff push, they will allow their franchise player to give it a go. He played only 27 minutes Thursday, so he should be relatively fresh.

  • Thunder's Shai Gilgeous-Alexander: Iffy against Lakers

    Gilgeous-Alexander is questionable for Friday's game versus the Lakers due to an abdominal strain.

    Gilgeous-Alexander's potential absence could result in extended minutes for Isaiah Joe and Tre Mann. If Gilgeous-Alexander is unable to suit up Friday, his next chance to do so will be Sunday's matchup with Portland.

  • Thunder's Shai Gilgeous-Alexander: Excels against former team

    Gilgeous-Alexander produced 30 points (10-15 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 9-9 FT), four rebounds, three assists, three blocks and one steal over 27 minutes during Thursday's 127-105 loss to the Clippers.

    It would be hard to blame Gilgeous-Alexander if he had a bit of a chip on his shoulder entering Thursday's contest, as he was going up against the team that drafted him -- and subsequently traded him after just one season. The star point guard flashed his standout offensive repertoire against his former club, leading OKC with 30 points on an efficient 10-for-15 mark from the field. Gilgeous-Alexander has evolved into one of the NBA's top scorers over the past few seasons, and he ranks fourth in the league this year with an average of 31.4 points per game.

  • Thunder's Shai Gilgeous-Alexander: Leads team with 31 points

    Gilgeous-Alexander finished Tuesday's 101-100 victory over the Clippers with 31 points (12-25 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 6-7 FT), seven rebounds and four assists over 36 minutes.

    Gilgeous-Alexander scored the Thunders' final 10 points to seal the victory. The elite guard is on a tear after a one-game absence, averaging 33.8 points and 5.5 rebounds while shooting 52.2 percent from the field over his last four outings.

  • Thunder's Shai Gilgeous-Alexander: Another big performance Sunday

    Gilgeous-Alexander finished with 40 points (12-24 FG, 16-19 FT), five rebounds, four assists and one steal across 35 minutes during Sunday's 124-120 victory over the Suns.

    It's the sixth time this season SGA has delivered at least 40 points, with his last such performance coming Feb. 10 against the Trail Blazers. Gilgeous-Alexander has missed a couple games in March while managing an abdominal issue, but when he's been on the court he's averaging 35.0 points, 5.2 boards, 3.8 assists and 2.2 steals over six contests.

  • Thunder's Shai Gilgeous-Alexander: Carries team to victory

    Gilgeous-Alexander (abdomen) accumulated 35 points (12-24 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 10-12 FT), seven rebounds, four assists and one steal across 36 minutes during Tuesday's 121-107 win over Brooklyn.

    Gilgeous-Alexander returned from a one-game respite and continued his domination thus far in March, as he's now poured in 30-plus points in each of his four appearances this month. He's also registered at least one steal in each matchup and has added solid contributions on the boards (5.8 rebounds per game). While Gilgeous-Alexander is expected to have his workload monitored closely down the stretch, he's proven this season that he's evolved into one of the league's premier scoring guards, now averaging 31.3 points through 58 appearances.

  • Thunder's Shai Gilgeous-Alexander: Not listed on injury report

    Gilgeous-Alexander (abdominal) has been removed from the injury report ahead of Tuesday's matchup with the Nets.

    Gilgeous-Alexander was rested on the second leg of a back-to-back Sunday, but he'll be back in action Tuesday night, which will likely send Isaiah Joe to the second unit and make Aaron Wiggins' minutes dip. The Thunder do not have a back-to-back set during Week 21, so Gilgeous-Alexander should be good to go for the three-game week.

  • Thunder's Shai Gilgeous-Alexander: Out Sunday

    Gilgeous-Alexander (abdominal) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Spurs, Rylan Stiles of reports.

    Though Gilgeous-Alexander's absence is being attributed to an abdominal issue, it likely has more to do with the fact that the Thunder are on the second leg of a back-to-back set. Aaron Wiggins and Isaiah Joe should both get boost in playing time with Gilgeous-Alexander watching from the sideline Sunday, and Josh Giddey should have the ball in his hands more often. Gilgeous-Alexander's next opportunity to play will come Tuesday versus Brooklyn.

  • Thunder's Shai Gilgeous-Alexander: Lights up Pels in return

    Gilgeous-Alexander (abdomen) finished Saturday's 110-96 win over the Pelicans with 35 points (11-23 FG, 13-13 FT), six rebounds, four steals, two assists and one block across 37 minutes.

    Gilgeous-Alexander sat out the Thunder's previous game Wednesday against the Suns, but his absence was largely for maintenance purposes while Oklahoma City was wrapping up a back-to-back set. The All-Star point guard didn't miss a beat in his return to the lineup Saturday, delivering his usual efficiency from the field while cleaning up at the free-throw line en route to his fourth consecutive outing with at least 30 points. The Thunder will conclude another back-to-back set with a matchup Sunday in San Antonio, so Gilgeous-Alexander's fantasy managers will want to verify his status for that contest ahead of the 7 p.m. ET opening tip.

  • Thunder's Shai Gilgeous-Alexander: Will play Saturday

    Gilgeous-Alexander (abdomen) will play Saturday against New Orleans, Andrew Schlecht of The Athletic reports.

    As expected, Gilgeous-Alexander will be back in action following a one-game absence to manage his abdomen injury. The Thunder previously said that they want to monitor the superstar guard's minutes during the stretch run, but he played 36 minutes and scored 33 points Tuesday versus Golden State before resting Wednesday, so it's safe to expect Gilgeous-Alexander to garner his usual usage versus the Pelicans.

  • Thunder's Shai Gilgeous-Alexander: Scores 33 points in win

    Gilgeous-Alexander (abdomen) amassed 33 points (14-24 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 3-4 FT), three rebounds, six assists and two steals in 36 minutes during Tuesday's 137-128 victory over Golden State.

    Gilgeous-Alexander continued to score at will Tuesday despite playing through an abdomen injury, knocking down seven of 11 shot attempts in the first half for 15 points before pouring in another 18 on 53.8 percent shooting from the field over the final two quarters. He finished second behind only Stephen Curry with 33 points in the contest and has now scored at least 30 points in three straight. The shooting guard will now sit out for Wednesday's matchup versus the Suns due to injury maintenance before presumably returning to the lineup Saturday against the Pelicans.

  • Thunder's Shai Gilgeous-Alexander: Playing Tuesday, out Wednesday

    Gilgeous-Alexander (abdomen) will play Tuesday against the Warriors but will sit out Wednesday against the Suns, Rylan Stiles of reports.

    Head coach Mark Daigneault has noted that the team intends to be careful with Gilgeous-Alexander's workload for the rest of the season, as he wouldn't be playing through his abdomen injury if it was earlier in the year. While it's encouraging that the Thunder want to play SGA to shoot for a playoff spot, fantasy managers must be careful about back-to-backs. The guard will sit out the second half of the Tuesday-Wednesday set, and there's another back-to-back Saturday and Sunday. The team hasn't decided on SGA's availability for the weekend, so fantasy managers should watch for information.

  • Thunder's Shai Gilgeous-Alexander: Returns with big line

    Gilgeous-Alexander (abdomen/COVID-19 protocols) accumulated 38 points (10-17 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 17-19 FT), seven rebounds, four assists, three steals and one block across 37 minutes during Sunday's 129-119 win over the Jazz.

    After a five-game absence due to an abdominal strain as well as a stint in the NBA's COVID-19 health and safety protocols, Gilgeous-Alexander returned with a flourish Sunday. Though Thunder head coach Mark Daigneault suggested over the weekend that Gilgeous-Alexander could sit out one half of the Thunder's four remaining back-to-back sets this season and also see his minutes monitored more carefully, no restriction was evident in his return to the lineup. Gilgeous-Alexander didn't scale back his aggression on the offensive end either, as his 19 trips to the free-throw line tied a career-high total.

  • Thunder's Shai Gilgeous-Alexander: Minutes will be monitored ROS

    Head coach Mark Daigneault said Sunday that the team will monitor Gilgeous-Alexander's (abdomen/COVID-19) workload for the rest of the season, Rylan Stiles of reports.

    Gilgeous-Alexander is expected to suit up Sunday following a five-game absence due to a combination of ankle and abdomen injuries, plus a stint in health and safety protocols. However, Daigneault said that if it were earlier in the season, the team would want to keep the dynamic point guard sidelined to rest his abdomen injury, but since there's limited time left and the Thunder are in the mix for a play-in spot, Gilgeous-Alexander is going to play through the issue. The coach's comments are a bit concerning for fantasy managers, especially with the playoffs looming, but the extent of the restrictions remain unclear. Daigneault did mention that it's possible Oklahoma City opts to rest Gilgeous-Alexander during back-to-back sets, which would mean he'd miss at least four of the team's final 19 contests.

  • Thunder's Shai Gilgeous-Alexander: Off injury report

    Gilgeous-Alexander (abdomen, COVID-19 protocols) is not on the injury report for Sunday's game against the Jazz.

    After a five-game absence due to a combination of ankle and abdomen injuries, plus health and safety protocols, Gilgeous-Alexander will return to the floor. He may be on a minutes limit in his first game back, but it seems likely that he'll at least start. SGA has scored at least 20 points in 21 straight matchups, averaging 31.2 points, 5.6 assists, 4.6 rebounds, 1.6 steals and 1.1 blocks during this stretch.
