Thunder's Chris Paul: Plays 24 minutes in loss
Paul had 14 points (3-9 FG, 1-5 3PT, 7-7 FT), seven assists, five rebounds and two steals in Monday's loss to the Suns.
Paul was limited to just 24 minutes in a game that tilted the Suns' way early in the second half. Paul will have two more tune-ups before the playoffs begin next week.... See More ... See Less
Thunder's Darius Bazley: Double-double in loss
Bazley went for 22 points (8-16 FG, 2-4 3PT, 4-5 FT) and 10 rebounds in Monday's loss to the Suns.
It was another strong performance for Bazley, who made his first start in Orlando. Coming off of a 23-point effort in Sunday's win over Washington, Bazley logged his first career double-double and added three assists, a steal and a block.... See More ... See Less
Thunder's Dennis Schroder: Not back in action
Schroder (personal) is listed as out for Monday's game against the Suns.
Schroder left the Thunder a week ago to witness the birth of his second child and remains without a definitive timeline to report back to the NBA bubble in Orlando. Whenever he arrives at the Walt Disney World complex, Schroder will have to complete a mandatory quarantine before he's allowed to rejoin the Thunder for workouts. The Thunder likely aren't counting on Schroder to be ready to play until the postseason gets underway.... See More ... See Less
Thunder's Devon Hall: Seeing limited run in NBA bubble
Hall played two minutes Sunday in the Thunder's 121-103 win over the Wizards, contributing one assist.
After being waived by Oklahoma City in December, Hall re-signed with the club in late June on a two-way deal after Luguentz Dort was upgraded to a standard NBA contract. The 25-year-old hasn't been a regular part of coach Billy Donovan's rotation during the NBA season restart in Orlando, but Hall has appeared in each of the last three games, all of which have been blowouts. The Thunder will be down six players for the second half of a back-to-back set Monday against the Suns, so Hall could be in store for his most significant playing time to date off the bench....

Thunder's Andre Roberson: Back in action Monday
Roberson (foot) doesn't appear on the injury report ahead of Monday's game against the Suns.
Roberson was withheld from Sunday's win over the Wizards due to a sore foot, but his absence from the injury report a day later suggests he was likely just getting some maintenance in the front end of a back-to-back set. With starting shooting guard Shai Gilgeous-Alexander (calf) out Monday and top backcourt reserve Dennis Schroder (personal) still away from the team, Roberson could be in store for his biggest workload to date in the NBA bubble. In his four appearances since the NBA restart, Roberson has played between five and 11 minutes each time out.... See More ... See Less
Thunder's Danilo Gallinari: Out Monday with ankle issue
The Thunder list Gallinari as out for Monday's game against the Suns with a left ankle injury.
Though Gallinari is listed with an injury, his absence is most likely maintenance-related more than anything else while the Thunder finish out the second half of a back-to-back set. Gallinari played 22 minutes in Sunday's 121-103 win over the Wizards and was efficient during his time on the court, pouring in 20 points (6-8 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 5-5 FT) to go with two rebounds, two assists and one steal. Darius Bazley looks like the most logical candidate to replace Gallinari in the starting five Monday.... See More ... See Less
Thunder's Nerlens Noel: Remains out
Noel (ankle) will sit out Monday against Phoenix.
The Thunder are being cautious with a number of regulars on a back-to-back set, but for Noel this will be the second consecutive absence. With Steven Adams also out, Mike Muscala will likely be set for another start.... See More ... See Less
Thunder's Steven Adams: Not playing Monday
Adams (lower leg) is listed as out for Monday's game against the Suns.
He'll be sidelined for the third game in a row while managing a lower left leg contusion. With Adams' top backup, Nerlens Noel (ankle), also sidelined, the Thunder will likely turn to Mike Muscala and Darius Bazley to fill most of the minutes at center.... See More ... See Less
Thunder's Shai Gilgeous-Alexander: To sit Monday
Gilgeous-Alexander will sit out Monday against Phoenix.
He's on the injury report with a bruised calf, but the absence is likely precautionary as OKC plays on the second night of a back-to-back.... See More ... See Less
Thunder's Darius Bazley: Scores 23 points in win
Bazley exploded for 23 points (8-13 FG, 5-8 3Pt, 2-2 FT) while adding seven rebounds, one assist and one steal in 26 minutes off the bench during Sunday's win over the Wizards.
Bazley has routinely logged 20-plus minutes off the bench since the league resumed July 30, and he has scored in double digits in three of his five Orlando appearances. That said, this 23-point performance was his highest scoring output of the season by a considerable margin -- his previous best was a 17-point effort against the Pelicans on Nov. 2.... See More ...

Thunder's Shai Gilgeous-Alexander: Another stat-filling effort
Gilgeous-Alexander registered 18 points (6-12 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 6-8 FT), seven assists, six rebounds and one steal in 36 minutes during Sunday's win over the Wizards.
Gilgeous-Alexander has not scored as much as he did during the regular season before play was suspended in March, but he continues to fill the stat sheet on a daily basis -- this means he still has decent upside due to his knack for contributing on both ends of the court at a steady rate. In five bubble games, the second-year guard is averaging 16.8 points, 4.6 rebounds, 4.6 assists and 1.6 steals in 35.0 minutes per game.... See More ... See Less
Thunder's Chris Paul: One assist shy of double-double
Paul notched 13 points (4-9 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), nine assists, six rebounds, three steals and two blocks in 33 minutes during Sunday's win over the Wizards.
CP3 hasn't registered a single double-double in five bubble games, but that doesn't mean he hasn't been productive. The veteran point guard has dished out five or more dimes in every contest while grabbing at least five rebounds in all but one, while also averaging 18.4 points per game on 54.1 percent shooting -- and 52.9 percent from three -- since the league resumed....

Thunder's Mike Muscala: Starting Sunday
Muscala is in the starting lineup Sunday against the Wizards.
With both Steven Adams and Nerlens Noel sitting, Muscala is the Thunder's last option at center. He should be set for extended minutes after missing the previous two games with a concussion.... See More ... See Less
Thunder's Steven Adams: Late scratch Sunday
Adams (leg) has been scratched from Sunday's game against the Wizards, Erik Horne of The Athletic reports.
Adams was initially expected to sit out, then the Thunder reversed course and indicated that he would play. Now, the team has once again switched gears and Adams will sit out, as will backup Nerlens Noel. That leaves Mike Muscala, who recently returned from a concussion, as the Thunder's only true option at center.... See More ... See Less
Thunder's Nerlens Noel: Out Sunday
Noel (ankle) is officially listed as out for Sunday's games against the Wizards, Erik Horne of The Athletic reports.
Noel was announced as a late-scratch just before the contest with the Wizards on Sunday. Considering Steven Adams will also be out on Sunday, look for Darius Bazley to pick up a good chunk of the minutes vacated by the two big men. While it is unclear what the timetable looks like for Noel, his next opportunity to return to the floor will come on Monday against the Suns.... See More ... See Less
