Nader delivered 15 points (4-10 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 4-4 FT), two rebounds, one assist and two steals across 23 minutes in the Thunder's 99-95 win over the Grizzlies on Sunday.
A successful night from three-point range and a perfect showing from the charity stripe helped prop up Nader's final line significantly, and the continued absence of Paul George (shoulder) ensured extended minutes. Nader has proven capable of production along the lines of what he contributed Sunday on a handful of occasions this season, but with his minutes typically in the teens or single digits when George his healthy, he remains under consideration in only the deepest of formats.
Nader had two points (1-6 FG, 0-2 3Pt), five rebounds, three assists, and one steal in 25 minutes during Saturday's 116-102 loss to the Spurs.
Nader matched his career high assist total while earning 20-plus minutes for the fourth time through 43 appearances this season. The absence of Paul George (shoulder) undoubtedly played a part in Nader earning a combined 42 minutes across the last two tilts. Still, the 25-year-old wing has carved out a decent role off the bench, though he can still be left on waiver wires in most leagues.
Nader (illness) played 16 minutes Tuesday in the Thunder's 132-122 win over the Magic, delivering 11 points (4-5 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-3 FT), two steals and one assist.
Nader had missed the Thunder's previous game Sunday in Boston while tending to the illness. After gaining clearance to play ahead of the opening tip, Nader stepped back in on the second unit, a role he's held since late December. With respectable marks from both the field (47.8 percent) and distance (37.2 percent) on the season, Nader's place in coach Billy Donovan's rotation looks fairly secure.
Nader (illness) is available for Tuesday's game against Orlando.
Nader was previously listed as questionable due to illness, but he's evidently feeling well enough to give it a go Tuesday evening. The former second-round pick hasn't been all that productive from a scoring standpoint of late, averaging just five points in his last six matchups prior to missing Sunday's contest while under the weather.
Nader (illness) is questionable for Tuesday's game against Orlando, Brett Dawson of The Athletic reports.
Nader failed to play Sunday due to illness, and his status for Oklahoma City's upcoming contest remains uncertain. Expect clarification on his availability as tipoff approaches.
Nader will not play Sunday against Boston due to an illness, Maddie Lee of The Oklahoman reports.
Nader, who has apparently come down with the bug and will be inactive Sunday as a result, hasn't missed a game since Dec. 23, ending his 19 straight appearances streak. In Nader's absence, Hamidou Diallo will likely step into the backup role behind Paul George on Sunday. The Iowa State product is currently averaging 3.8 points and 1.8 rebounds across 33 appearances this season.
Nader put up 16 points (6-9 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 2-3 FT), six rebounds, two assists and two steals across 20 minutes Monday in the Thunder's 127-109 win over the Knicks.
It's the second-best scoring haul of the season for Nader, who has now logged double-digit minutes for the fifth time in six games. Nader should continue to stick in a second-unit role Tuesday against the Trail Blazers, but his playing time could be threatened in the Thunder's subsequent contest Thursday versus the Pelicans. Oklahoma City is expected to reintegrate Alex Abrines back into the rotation for that contest after the swingman missed extended action to tend to a personal matter.
Nader produced 15 points (6-6 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT), two rebounds, two assists, and one block in 17 minutes during Saturday's 122-112 win over the Spurs.
Nader was phenomenal, enjoying a perfect night from the field for the second straight game. He finished with nine points (4-4 FG, 1-1 3Pt), three boards, and one steal in 12 minutes during Thursday's matchup with the Spurs, and continues to step up with Alex Abrines (personal) sidelined for the last 10 contests, reaching double figures four times while making at least 50 percent of his field-goal attempts in six of those showings.
Nader tallied 10 points (4-6 FG, 2-3 3Pt), four rebounds and one assist across 14 minutes in the Thunder's 107-100 win over the Lakers on Wednesday.
Nader's recent move to the bench after a successful one-game turn with the starting five on Dec. 28 hasn't cooled him off, as he's now generated back-to-back 10-point efforts after despite averaging just 13.5 minutes over that pair of contests. Nader's sharp work from distance has helped, as he's drained four of six three-point attempts during that two-game span. The second-year wing had logged precious little time on the floor prior to Christmas Day, but he now seems to have carved out a modest but steady role off the bench and is thus an asset to at least keep an eye on in deeper formats and DFS contests.
Nader will return to a bench role for Monday's game against the Mavericks, Brett Dawson of The Athletic reports.
Nader will head back to the bench after making a spot start in place of Terrence Ferguson -- who was out due to an illness -- on Sunday. He finished with three points and one rebound in 16 minutes during Sunday's start.
Nader is starting Sunday against the Mavericks, Eddie Sefko of The Dallas Morning News reports.
Nader will enter the starting five as Terrance Ferguson battles a stomach bug. Ferguson may play some, although Nader figures to take over the majority of his workload Sunday.
Nader totaled 18 points (7-13 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and five rebounds across 33 minutes in the Thunder's 118-102 win over the Suns on Friday.
With Paul George (quadriceps) sitting for Friday's contest, Nader enjoyed a rare opportunity and made excellent use of it. The 25-year-old's scoring total was a career high, while his 33 minutes represented the second-highest allotment of playing time of his season-plus in the NBA. However, Nader hadn't logged more than 10 minutes in any game prior and has often logged a DNP-CD, so his brief moment in the spotlight isn't expected to extend beyond George's absence.
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.
Nader (knee) will remain out for Sunday's preseason game against the Hawks, Brett Dawson of The Athletic reports.
Nader will be missing a third straight exhibition contest, as he's yet to shake a lingering knee injury. The Thunder only have one game left on the preseason schedule and that comes Tuesday against the Bucks, so it's unclear if Nader will have enough time to be cleared for that contest. Also, with the regular-season opener coming up in just over a week, there seems to be a legitimate chance Nader's injury may not have fully healed by then.
Nader (knee) has been ruled out for Friday's preseason game against the Timberwolves, Brett Dawson of The Athletic reports.
Nader has been working through a sore left knee and while it wasn't originally expected to be anything serious, it's at least somewhat concerning that he's been ruled out a day in advance once again. Still, it's just the preseason, so the Thunder could just be taking an overly cautious approach with him. The Thunder have two more preseason games left prior to the regular-season opener and Nader's next shot to take the court will come Sunday against Atlanta.
Nader (knee) will be held out of Wednesday's preseason game against Detroit, Brett Dawson of The Athletic reports.
Nader wasn't a participant Tuesday in practice, so this doesn't come as a huge shock. His next chance to return will be Friday against the Timberwolves.
