  • Thunder's Steven Adams: Another double-double in loss

    Adams netted 11 points (5-10 FG, 1-4 FT), 15 rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block across 37 minutes in the Thunder's 117-113 loss to the Kings on Monday.

    Adams provided a team-high number of rebounds on his way to his second straight double-double. The six-year veteran's shot attempts did take a bit of a dip with Russell Westbrook returning to the lineup after a six-game absence, but he's still put the ball up on at least 10 occasions in six consecutive games. Adams' combination of high-percentage shots, elite rebounding and solid rim protecting continue to keep his fantasy value strong across all formats.

  • Thunder's Paul George: Falls just short of double-double

    George registered 27 points (9-24 FG, 4-14 3Pt, 5-5 FT), nine rebounds, three assists and one block across 37 minutes in the Thunder's 117-113 loss to the Kings on Monday.

    George served as an excellent complement to the effort of the returning Russell Westbrook, and he fell just short of a second straight double-double. George's shot has been a bit spotty in November, as he's now drained 40.9 percent or less of his attempts in four of the last six contests. Nevertheless, the 28-year-old is locked into a high-usage role even when Westbrook is in the lineup -- as evidenced yet again Monday -- and he's now averaging a career-high 7.9 rebounds, 4.3 assists and 2.4 steals. His versatile production therefore continues to render him an elite asset across all formats.

  • Thunder's Russell Westbrook: Excels in return

    Westbrook supplied 29 points (12-25 FG, 4-10 3Pt, 1-2 FT), 13 rebounds, seven assists and three steals across 37 minutes in the Thunder's 117-113 loss to the Kings on Monday.

    Westbrook's return from a six-game absence was a highly successful one from a statistical standpoint, even as the night ended disappointingly from a team perspective. The perennial All-Star operated without a minutes restriction as advertised, and he didn't appear hampered by his previously sprained ankle whatsoever. Westbrook has now scored 29 points apiece in two of the four games he's played in November, and he's double-doubled in three of those contests as well. Given his performance Monday, he appears to be at full strength moving forward.

  • Thunder's Jerami Grant: Heads to locker room

    Grant went back to the locker room after rolling his ankle in Monday's game against the Kings, Erik Horne of The Oklahoman reports.

    Before exiting the contest, Grant contributed eight points (3-9 FG, 2-2 FT), one rebound and a block across 26 minutes. The Thunder are already dealing with several injuries, including Nerlens Noel (illness) in the frontcourt. With three games over the next fives days, the Thunder will have to rely heavily on Patrick Patterson and Tyler Davis should Grant miss time.

  • Thunder's Alex Abrines: Ruled out for second half

    Abrines (illness) won't return to Monday's game against the Kings in the second half, Brett Dawson of The Athletic reports.

    Abrines didn't check into the game during the first half, and the Thunder have confirmed that he won't take the court in the second half. Hamidou Diallo is expected to shoulder the load with Oklahoma City currently thin at shooting guard. Abrines figures to be a game-time decision for Wednesday's matchup with Golden State.

  • Thunder's Alex Abrines: Will try to play Monday

    Abrines (illness) will attempt to play Monday against the Kings, Brett Dawson of The Athletic reports.

    Abrines evidently doesn't feel 100 percent, but he'll try to tough it out in Sacramento. His minutes will likely depend on how he feels during the game, and he's also slated to come off the bench in an effort to take it easy on the 25-year-old guard.

  • Thunder's Nerlens Noel: Out due to illness

    Noel is unavailable for Monday's game against the Kings due to an illness, Brett Dawson of The Athletic reports.

    With Noel out of the mix, expect Patrick Patterson to see a bump in minutes at center. Given the nature of the issue, Noel figures to be a game-time decision for Wednesday's tilt at Golden State.

  • Thunder's Alex Abrines: Active for Monday's game

    Abrines (illness) is active for Monday's game against the Kings, Brett Dawson of The Athletic reports.

    Despite being active, Abrines will remain a game-time decision. Abrines has been struggling with the illness for the past week, but appears to be nearing a return. Raymond Felton and Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot may see a bump in minutes if Abrines is unable to go.

  • Thunder's Russell Westbrook: Will play Monday

    Westbrook (personal) is available to play and won't be on a minutes restriction Monday against Sacramento, Brett Dawson of The Athletic reports.

    Westbrook hasn't played since Nov. 5 due to an ankle sprain and the birth of twin daughters, but he's been cleared to return to the court in Sacramento. He figures to rejoin the starting five and see his usual workload.

  • Thunder's Hamidou Diallo: Draws another start Monday

    Diallo will start Monday's contest against Sacramento, Brett Dawson of The Athletic reports.

    Diallo is in line for his second straight start, even if Alex Abrines (illness) is cleared to take the court. Diallo scored just one point over 19 minutes Saturday, so he'll aim to do more on the offensive end in Sacramento.

  • Thunder's Alex Abrines: Questionable to play Monday

    Abrines (illness) is questionable for Monday's game against Sacramento, Brett Dawson of The Athletic reports.

    Abrines was limited at practice Sunday as he continues to deal with an illness, and the Thunder will wait to make a call on his status until closer to game-time. Coach Billy Donovan indicated that, if Abrines is cleared, he could get the start at shooting guard in the absence of Terrance Ferguson (personal).

  • Thunder's Deonte Burton: On fringe of rotation

    Burton has played in each of the Thunder's last three contests.

    This isn't exactly breaking news, but Burton has totaled double-digit minutes in two consecutive games, playing 12 minutes against the Knicks last week and 10 minutes in Saturday's win over Phoenix. Burton will have a difficult time earning any sort of consistent spot in the rotation, but with Terrance Ferguson (personal) and Andre Roberson (knee) out -- and Alex Abrines (illness) questionable -- Monday, Burton could again see some deep bench minutes. Once that trio is healthy, however, Burton will likely sink back into a reduced role.

  • Thunder's Terrance Ferguson: Ruled out Monday

    Ferguson (personal) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Kings, Brett Dawson of The Athletic reports.

    Ferguson will miss a second straight game as he continues to tend to a personal matter. In his absence, Alex Abrines (illness), Hamidou Diallo and Timothy Luwawu-Cabarrot are all candidates to see added minutes.

  • Thunder's Russell Westbrook: Will be evaluated pregame

    Updating a previous report, Westbrook (personal/ankle) will be evaluated prior to Monday's game against the Kings, Brett Dawson of The Athletic reports.

    The Thunder continue to handle Westbrook's status in a confusion fashion, listing him as "out" on their initial injury report, yet waiting until closer to game-time to officially clarify his status. The general expectation was that Westbrook would miss a seventh straight game, though there now looks to be a chance he could be cleared to play after dealing with an ankle injury, as well as the recent birth of his twin daughters.

  • Thunder's Russell Westbrook: Won't play Monday

    Westbrook has been ruled out for Monday's game against Sacramento due to personal reasons, Royce Young of ESPN.com reports.

    Westbrook is still away from the team due to the birth of his daughters, although he's likely to return later in the week. A lingering ankle injury is also bothering Westbrook, so it's unclear whether he'll play upon rejoining the Thunder. His next chance to take the floor will come Wednesday at Golden State.
