Diallo netted 14 points (5-10 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 4-6 FT), seven rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block across 26 minutes in the Thunder's 92-87 win over the Trail Blazers in a Las Vegas Summer League game Thursday.
Diallo drew even with Deonte Burton for second on the team in scoring during what was yet another strong summer league performance. Diallo is now averaging 14.8 points, 4.3 rebounds, 1.5 steals and 1.3 assists across four games in the desert, with his scoring average putting him behind only Kevin Hervey on the Thunder during play in Las Vegas.
Diallo delivered 14 points (6-12 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 1-4 FT), four rebounds, one assist, three steals and one block across 27 minutes during the Thunder's 84-81 overtime win over the 76ers in Las Vegas Summer League play Monday.
Diallo is potentially in line for an expanded role this coming season, and he's certainly making a solid case for it with his first pair of summer league performances. The 2018 second-round pick is now averaging 17.0 points, 4.5 rebounds, 1.0 assist, 2.0 steals and 1.0 block over the Thunder's first two Las Vegas contests, and he encouragingly shot 50.0 percent Monday after having drained just 36.0 percent of his attempts in OKC's summer league opener.
Diallo (elbow) finished with 20 points (8-22 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 3-6 FT), five rebounds, one steal, and one block in 31 minutes during Saturday's 78-66 loss to the Jazz.
Diallo saw his first game action since undergoing elbow surgery back in mid-May, and he was aggressive offensively in the team's summer league opener. He'll look to continue honing his craft and could find himself earning a regular role next season if the front office remains active on the trade market.
Diallo underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right elbow Wednesday, Maddie Lee of The Oklahoman reports. He's expected to be withheld from basketball activities for the next four weeks.
Diallo wasn't available for either of the Thunder's first two playoff games, and it appears the injury is more serious than initially noted. Given his timeline to resume activity, there's a strong chance Diallo won't be available for the remainder of the playoffs.
Diallo (elbow) won't play against the Trail Blazers on Tuesday, Jamie Hudson of NBC Sports Northwest reports.
Diallo has missed the previous four contests due to an elbow injury, although given his limited contributions for the Thunder this year off the bench, his absence shouldn't impact the outcome of the game all that much. He averaged 3.7 points and 1.9 rebounds over 51 matchups during the regular season.
Diallo will not play in Sunday's playoff contest against Portland due to a right elbow injury, Jamie Hudson of NBC Sports Northwest reports.
Diallo hasn't been a factor all season long for the Thunder but nevertheless, he will remain on the sidelines permanently during Sunday's matchup with the Trail Blazers.
Diallo was recalled from the G League on Wednesday, Maddie Lee of The Oklahoman reports.
With Markieff Morris (neck) questionable for Wednesday's game against the Nets, it appears the organization wants Diallo potentially available for the matchup. In his 48 NBA appearances this season, Diallo is averaging 4.1 points and 2.1 rebounds in 11.2 minutes.
Diallo tallied 20 points (8-19 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 3-3 FT), eight rebounds, one assist and one block in the 123-120 win Wednesday over Stockton.
Diallo recently joined the Blue, averaging 20.7 points in three contests with the G League lineup. The 2018 Slam Dunk Contest winner will likely continue to develop his game in the G League for the foreseeable future, but could wind up back with the Thunder before the end of the regular season.
Diallo was the winner of Saturday Night's Slam Dunk Contest at All-Star Weekend in Charlotte.
It was a bit of an underwhelming contest, overall, but Diallo came through with the dunk of the night, vaulting over Shaquille O'Neal's shoulders and finishing with a Vince Carter-esque arm-in-the-rim. The effort was good enough for a 50, and Diallo finished up with scores of 43 and 45 for his final two dunks, giving him 88 total points in the final round -- three more than second-place finisher, Dennis Smith, Jr.
Diallo was assigned to the G League's Oklahoma City Blue on Sunday and played 29 minutes in the affiliate's 113-110 loss to the South Bay Lakers. He finished with 21 points (8-20 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 2-3 FT), eight rebounds, three assists, three steals and one block.
The Thunder moved Diallo to the G League for the first time all season after the rookie had recently surrendered his spot in the rotation to two-way player Deonte Burton. It's expected that Diallo will be recalled before long, but the Kentucky product probably won't be on track to pick up meaningful minutes in the near future given the poor form he's shown of late. Since the calendar flipped to 2019, Diallo has made only one third of his field-goal attempts across 14 appearances at the NBA level.
Diallo will come off the bench Friday against the Heat, Erik Horne of The Oklahoman reports.
With Terrance Ferguson (back) returning to the lineup after a one-game absence, Dillo will resume his usual role on the bench. In a reserve role, Diallo averages 4.1 points and 2.2 boards across 11.6 minutes.
Diallo totaled seven points (3-5 FG, 1-1 FT), one rebound and a block across 17 minutes in the Thunder's win over the Magic on Tuesday.
Diallo drew the start at shooting guard with Terrance Ferguson (back) out on Tuesday, but his contributions were modest. The rookie out of Kentucky can't be counted on as a consistent option, even when he's inserted into the starting five.
Diallo will start Tuesday against the Magic, Erik Horne of The Oklahoman reports.
Terrance Ferguson is out with mid-back spasms, so the nod will go to Diallo at shooting guard. In two previous starts, the rookie has averaged 9.5 points, 2.5 rebounds, 1.0 assist and 1.0 steal across 20.5 minutes.
Diallo went scoreless (0-3 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 0-2 FT) and provided three rebounds and an assist across 11 minutes Thursday in the Thunder's 138-128 overtime loss to the Lakers.
Diallo is stuck in a shooting slump, as the rookie has converted just 20.8 percent of his field-goal attempts and 45.5 percent of his free throws over the past 10 games. Those percentages are exacerbated by a low volume of attempts, with Diallo typically coming off the bench for brief spurts before checking out of contests. He could probably benefit from an extended stint in the G League, where he would be able to receive consistent playing time.
Diallo (ankle) posted one point (0-1 FG, 1-2 FT) and two rebounds across five minutes during Wednesday's 114-112 win over the Nets.
Diallo had "a chance" of playing Wednesday while recovering from an ankle injury, and he ended up seeing the floor. It seems coach Billy Donovan still wants to ease Diallo back into action, as he saw just five minutes.
Diallo (ankle) will have a chance to return Wednesday against the Nets, Brett Dawson of The Athletic reports.
Diallo has technically been available for the Thunder's last two games, but he hasn't seen the floor as the team continues to handle his sore left ankle with caution. Diallo was limited at Tuesday's practice, but coach Billy Donovan said Wednesday afternoon that Diallo is doing better, and the Thunder will wait until after pregame warmups to make a final call.
Diallo (ankle) managed to take part in Tuesday's practice without contact, Brett Dawson of The Athletic reports.
Diallo was reportedly available for Monday's contest in an emergency, and he was held out as expected. While it's good news that he was at practice and participating in some capacity, the fact that there was no contact could mean he'll be sidelined again for Wednesday's tilt in Brooklyn. Expect a decision on his availability closer to tipoff.
Diallo (ankle) is expected to be available for Monday's game against the Pistons, but he'll only play in an emergency, Erik Horne of The Oklahoman reports.
As was the case against the Hawks on Friday, Diallo will likely be in uniform, but coach Billy Donovan sounded as though the rookie would only be used if absolutely necessary.
Diallo (ankle) participated in Sunday's practice, but was unable to finish as he experienced left ankle soreness, Brett Dawson of The Athletic reports.
Diallo has missed the previous four games for the Thunder after suffering a left ankle sprain. He was cleared to return for their last game, but never made an appearance. More information should come out early Monday, and at this time, he should be considered questionable for Monday's game against Detroit.
Diallo (ankle) will be available for Friday's game against Atlanta, Royce Young of ESPN.com reports.
Diallo has missed the last three matchups due to an ankle issue, but he's been cleared to play, although the Thunder figure to use him sparingly, given he hasn't gone through a full day of practice with contact since suffering the injury.
