Top Thunder News

  • Thunder's Derrick Favors: Good to go Friday

    Favors (back) is available for Friday's matchup against the Hornets, Brandon Rahbar of DailyThunder.com reports.

    Favors returns following a two-game absence and will come off the bench. As a reserve, he's averaged 3.3 points and 3.7 rebounds in 13.5 minutes.

  • Thunder's Mamadi Diakite: Bags another 10-day deal

    The Thunder re-signed Diakite on Friday to a second 10-day contract.

    Oklahoma City immediately plugged Diakite into its rotation upon signing his initial 10-day deal, as he appeared in each of the past four games while averaging 3.5 points and 2.3 rebounds in 12.0 minutes. He should continue to see backup minutes in the Thunder frontcourt while Derrick Favors frequently sits due to rest and minor injuries and while Aleksej Pokusevski remains in the G League.

  • Thunder's Kenrich Williams: Off injury report

    Williams (COVID-19 protocols) is off the injury report for Friday's contest against the Hornets.

    Williams has missed the past five games due to protocols but will return Friday. He could be on a minutes limit, though he typically only sees minutes in the low-20s anyway. Since the start of December, he's averaged 7.2 points, 4.5 rebounds, 2.1 assists and 1.3 steals in 21.2 minutes.

  • Thunder's Derrick Favors: Questionable Friday

    Favors (back) is questionable for Friday's matchup against the Hornets.

    Favors has missed the past two games with back soreness, and he hasn't played in more than three consecutive games since Dec. 18-Dec. 22. If he sits out Friday, his next chance to play arrives Saturday against the Cavaliers.

  • Thunder's Theo Maledon: Rides free throws against Legends

    Maledon tallied 26 points (3-6 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 13-14 FT), six rebounds and seven assists across 26 minutes in Wednesday's 113-103 victory over the Texas Legends. He also had two steals and a block in the game.

    Maledon shot an outrageous 14 free throws Wednesday, and he made an impressive 92.9 percent of them as the Blue defeated the Legends. He's averaging a balanced 14.4 points, 6.4 rebounds and 5.2 assists per game in the G League this season, and this performance brought him up to an 80.6 percent free-throw shooter.

  • Thunder's Isaiah Roby: Near double-double in win

    Roby posted 16 points (8-11 FG, 0-1 3Pt), eight rebounds and three blocks across 22 minutes in Wednesday's 113-103 victory over the Texas Legends.

    Roby shot efficiently, was a force on the glass and excelled defensively Wednesday against Texas, three things he has done consistently with the Blue this season. He's averaging 15.6 points per game from 56.9 percent shooting from the field, and he also has 9.6 rebounds and 3.2 blocks per game in his five G League appearances so far.

  • Thunder's Josh Giddey: Near triple-double in loss

    Giddey provided nine points (4-16 FG, 0-5 3Pt, 1-2 FT), 11 rebounds and eight assists in 33 minutes during Wednesday's 118-96 loss to the Spurs.

    Despite a poor shooting performance, Giddey picked up the slack in rebounds and assists, and narrowly missed a triple-double. It would have been his second one this season already, as Giddey accomplished the feat against the Mavericks on Jan. 2. The Australian's nine points Wednesday snapped a streak of eight straight games in double figures offensively.

  • Thunder's Shai Gilgeous-Alexander: Dismal shooting in Wednesday's loss

    Gilgeous-Alexander recorded 13 points (5-21 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 3-4 FT), three rebounds, seven assists and two steals in 30 minutes during Wednesday's 118-96 loss to the Spurs.

    Coming off a 34-point performance against the Mavericks on Monday, Gilgeous-Alexander struggled mightily from the field, shooting a mere 23.8 percent overall, but the Kentucky product still manage to record double digits offensively. It was also the guard's fourth time across his past seven outings in which he has failed to convert a three-point attempt. Gilgeous-Alexander will look to bounce back versus the Hornets, who are currently second worst in the league in opponent's points per game, on Friday.

  • Thunder's Luguentz Dort: Tallies 15 points Wednesday

    Dort produced 15 points (4-13 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 4-4 FT) and two rebounds over 27 minutes during Wednesday's 118-96 loss to the Spurs.

    Despite struggling overall from the field and shooting just 30.8 percent, Dort recorded his seventh straight matchup with at least 14 points. During that span, the Arizona State product has averaged 18.0 points and has drained a total of 19 threes. Across the Thunder's 40 games this season, Dort is second on the team in scoring and minutes played.

  • Thunder's Aaron Wiggins: Leads team with 19 points

    Wiggins totaled 19 points (8-11 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 2-3 FT), eight rebounds, one assist, one block and one steal across 35 minutes during Wednesday's 118-96 loss to the Spurs.

    Wiggins led the Thunder offensively by posting his highest scoring total since dropping 22 points Dec. 29 against the Suns. His eight rebounds also tied a season best. The 2021 second-round pick has exceeded many expectations so far this season, as the guard is averaging 7.0 points, 3.2 rebounds and 1.1 assists while shooting 47.8 percent overall.

  • Thunder's Vit Krejci: Not close to return

    Coach Mark Daigneault said Wednesday that Krejci (ankle) isn't expected to return until late February, Joe Mussatto of The Oklahoman reports.

    Kreji has been sidelined by the severe ankle sprain since Dec. 22, and it appears he'll be unavailable for at least another month. He's appeared in only three games for the Thunder this season.

  • Thunder's Aaron Wiggins: Rejoins starting five

    Wiggins will start Wednesday's game against the Spurs, Joe Mussatto of The Oklahoman reports.

    Wiggins came off the bench the past two games but will return to the lineup for Wednesday's contest. Darius Bazley will shift to the bench as a result.

  • Thunder's Darius Bazley: Shifts back to bench

    Bazley will come off the bench Wednesday against the Spurs, Joe Mussatto of The Oklahoman reports.

    Bazley made his first start since mid-December against the Mavericks on Monday and will return to the bench after posting two points (1-8 FG, 0-2 3Pt), six rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block in 19 minutes. Aaron Wiggins will enter the lineup in his place.

  • Thunder's Derrick Favors: Out Wednesday

    Favors is out Wednesday against the Spurs due to lower back soreness.

    Favors was technically a DNP-CD during Monday's game against the Mavericks, though it's possible he was dealing with the sore back at that point. Jeremiah Robinson-Earl and Mike Muscala should occupy most of the center minutes in Favors' absence.

  • Thunder's Kenrich Williams: Nearing return

    Thunder head coach Mark Daigneault said Tuesday that Williams (COVID-19 protocols) is "close" to rejoining the team and could be available at some point during the remaining three games of Oklahoma City's road trip, Joe Mussatto of The Oklahoman reports.

    Since Williams has been out since Jan. 10 after entering the protocols, he'll more than likely need to get in at least one practice before the Thunder clear him to play. With that in mind, Williams looks safe to rule out for Wednesday's game in San Antonio, even if he happens to clear protocols earlier that day. Friday's game in Charlotte or Saturday's game in Cleveland could represent more realistic targets for Williams' return.
