Horford (rest) won't play Thursday against the Spurs.
Horford will sit out the Thunder's final game before the All-Star break for rest purposes during the second half of a back-to-back set. Isaiah Roby and Mike Muscala should see increased usage for Oklahoma City in his absence.
Horford will play and start Saturday against the Nuggets.
As expected, following a rest day for Friday's game against the Hawks, the veteran will re-join the starting five Saturday. This month, Horford has averaged 16.7 points, 6.4 rebounds, 4.8 assists and 1.2 steals in 29.5 minutes.
Horford (rest) will not play in Friday's game against Atlanta.
Unsurprisingly, Horford will be rested for the front end of a back-to-back, following a pattern this season for the 34-year-old veteran. Horford's absence will likely mean Isaiah Roby will receive a start. The 34-year-old should be available to return Saturday against the Nuggets.
Horford notched 16 points (7-16 FG, 2-6 3Pt), seven rebounds and seven assists across 30 minutes in Wednesday's win over the Spurs.
Horford played an instrumental role in the win, finishing as the Thunder's second-highest scorer and third-best rebounder while also pacing the team in assists. In fact, he was the one who dished out the assist for Luguentz Dort's game-winning three-pointer. The veteran big man has now scored 16 points in back-to-back games and surpassed the 15-point plateau in five of his last seven appearances.
Horford will be rested for Monday's game against the Heat.
No surprise here, as the Thunder will stick to their plan of holding Horford out of one-half of back-to-back sets. The big man played 28 minutes in Sunday's win over the Cavs, finishing with 16 points, eight boards, one assist and two steals. Expect Isaiah Roby to start in Horford's place Monday.
Horford compiled 16 points (7-12 FG, 2-4 3Pt), eight rebounds, two steals and one assist over 28 minutes in Sunday's 117-101 win over the Cavaliers.
Horford only recorded 10 points while returning to the court Friday, but he was slightly more effective while shooting 58.3 percent from the floor against Cleveland. He led the team with eight rebounds Sunday, but his fantasy output has cooled off over his last three appearances since a string of several vintage performances.
Horford managed only 10 points (4-14 FG, 2-9 3Pt), five rebounds, four assists and one block in 29 minutes during Friday's 98-85 loss to the Bucks.
Horford was back in the lineup after sitting out the previous game due to rest but failed to come through with the goods. After a stretch of vintage performances, Horford is beginning to regress and sits outside the top 80 over the past two weeks. The elevated production immediately following his extended absence likely had an impact on expectations. Congratulations to those who managed to move him out for a top 40 player. He is likely to hover around the top 75 moving forward but will continue to miss games as part of his management program.
Horford (rest) will play and start Friday against the Bucks, Jim Owczarski of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
After sitting out Wednesday's game for rest, the veteran is back in the lineup, which will push Isaiah Roby back to the bench. Across Horford's past five appearances, he has averaged 17.4 points, 6.0 rebounds, 5.4 assists and 1.0 steals in 31.0 minutes.
Horford will not play in Wednesday's game against the Grizzlies, Joe Mussatto of The Oklahoman reports.
With the Thunder playing on the second night of a back-to-back, Horford will get the night off, as has been the case all season. The veteran has been on a tear over the last two weeks, but he cooled off a bit Tuesday night against Portland, finishing with 12 points, five rebounds and three assists in 29 minutes. Expect Isaiah Roby and Mike Muscala to pick up more minutes in Horford's stead.
Horford scored 20 points (8-16 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT) to go along with nine assists and seven rebounds in Oklahoma City's 114-109 victory over Milwaukee on Sunday.
With Shai Gilgeous-Alexander (knee) missing his third straight game, Horford stepped up as the main Thunder distributor, coming away with a new season-high assist total. In the five games that Gilgeous-Alexander has missed this year, Horford has averaged 20.8 points, 6.6 rebounds and 6.4 assists per game. The center has also recorded at least 20 points, eight rebounds and seven assists in two out of the last three games.
Horford put up 16 points (6-15 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 1-2 FT), five rebounds and four steals over 28 minutes in Friday's 97-95 loss to the Nuggets.
After playing 34 minutes in each of the last two games, Horford saw less playing time in Friday's narrow loss. However, he was still a solid contributor while shooting 40 percent from the floor against Denver. He's now averaging 18.0 points and 6.0 rebounds over 32.0 minutes per game across the past three matchups.
Horford contributed 25 points (11-18 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), eight rebounds, eight assists, four steals and one block across 34 minutes in Wednesday's overtime loss to the Lakers.
With Shai Gilgeous-Alexander (knee) unable to play, the Thunder looked to Horford to lead the offense against the defending champions. The veteran performed admirably, leading OKC in field-goal attempts, scoring, steals and assists. The effort added to a strong seven-game stretch by Horford, during which he has posted per-game averages of 18.7 points, 7.1 boards, 4.4 dimes, 2.1 steals and 1.3 blocks. He has also averaged 2.7 three-pointers per contest and has shot over 50 percent from deep over that span.
Horford recorded 14 points (6-20 FG, 2-8 3Pt), five rebounds, three assists, a steal and a block across 34 minutes in Monday's 119-112 overtime loss against the Lakers.
Horford had a woeful shooting performance, and this game was certainly a step in the wrong direction after he scored at least 15 points in four of his previous five games since returning from a six-game absence last month. The high volume of shot attempts was encouraging, however, especially with star guard Shai Gilgeous-Alexander in the lineup. Gilgeous-Alexander and Horford should continue to shoulder the offensive load for the Thunder most nights.
Horford (rest) will not play in Saturday's game against the Timberwolves.
After posting 26 points, eight assists, seven rebounds and three blocks in his best statistical performance of the season Friday, Horford will get a rest day and will not be available Saturday. Isaiah Roby (foot) and Darius Bazley (back) are both currently listed as questionable, but if they can't go, Mike Muscala could see increased run in Horford's absence.
Horford posted 26 points (10-19 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 3-3 FT), eight assists, seven rebounds, three blocks and two steals across 29 minutes in Friday's loss against the Timberwolves.
Horford took advantage of Shai Gilgeous-Alexander's absence due to a sprained left knee and posted a strong output as the team's clear-cut offensive option. He needed just three rebounds and two assists shy of recording a triple-double while also surpassing the 20-point mark for the third time this season. This was Horford's best scoring game of the season, and while expecting these numbers on a regular basis might be a stretch, he's bound to experience an uptick on his usage while guys such as Gilgeous-Alexander, Luguentz Dort (knee) and George Hill (thumb) remain out.
Horford posted 12 points (5-13 FG, 2-3 3Pt), seven rebounds, three assists, two steals and a blocked shot across 25 minutes in Monday's 136-106 loss to the Rockets.
Horford lost the battle inside, as he was unable to gain any traction in the paint opposite Christian Wood and DeMarcus Cousins. Houston shot 48 percent from the floor as well, and that limited Horford's opportunity for success on the boards.
Horford scored 16 points (6-15 FG, 4-6 3PT) to go along with six rebounds, four assists, one steal and two blocks across 24 minutes in Friday's loss to the Nets.
Horford continued his hot shooting from three-point range, nailing nine of his 11 attempts across two contests since returning from a personal absence. He's also piled up defensive stats in that same span, recording three blocks and four steals. While Horford has only played in 11 games to this point in the season, he has increased his scoring and rebounding despite playing fewer minutes in comparison to his 2019-20 season in Philadelphia.
Horford (personal) registered 21 points (8-12 FG, 5-5 3Pt), 11 rebounds, two assists, three steals and a block across 30 minutes in Wednesday's win over the Suns.
Horford had missed the past six games to be with his family following the birth of his child, and he returned with an impressive performance on both ends of the court en route to his first double-double of the season. While Horford is no longer the double-double threat he was during the prime of his career, he's still scored in double digits in all but three games this season. He'll remain one of the Thunder's most important scoring threats behind Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, who's the team's undisputed offensive leader.
Horford (personal) is available for Wednesday's game against the Suns, Rylan Stiles of BricktownBuckets.com reports.
The 34-year-old missed the past six games to be with his family following the birth of his child, but he'll return to the court Wednesday. Horford is averaging 27.1 minutes this season but could have some limitations since he hasn't seen game action in over two weeks. Isaiah Roby started at center during his absence and will presumably move back to the bench.
Horford (personal) is questionable for Wednesday's game against the Suns.
Horford has missed the past six games while being with his family following the birth of his child. However, he could return to the lineup Wednesday. If that's the case, Isaiah Roby would presumably shift back to the bench.
