Thunder's Josh Giddey: Elevated scoring continues Friday
Giddey registered 21 points (9-19 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 2-4 FT), seven rebounds and four assists in 33 minutes during Friday's 121-117 loss to the Pacers.
Giddey has taken on an expanded scoring role lately, averaging 22.8 points on 19.2 shots across the past five matchups compared to 16.1 points on 14.4 shots in his 68 prior appearances. That's partially due to two absences from Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, but Giddey has been extra aggressive even when SGA has been available. Giddey is also posting 10.0 rebounds and 6.6 assists per game during this run.... See More ... See Less
Thunder's Isaiah Joe: Ice cold from field
Joe recorded seven points (2-10 FG, 0-8 3Pt, 3-4 FT), two rebounds, one assist and three steals over 25 minutes during Friday's 121-117 loss to the Pacers.
Joe rejoined the reserves Friday upon the return of Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and turned in a second straight poor shooting performance. The sharpshooter has now missed all of his last 15 three-point attempts and has shot just 27.2 percent from the field since his 33-point outing Tuesday. Joe should be expected to snap out of the slump, considering he has nailed triples at a 40.9 percent clip this season.... See More ... See Less
Thunder's Jaylin Williams: Held scoreless by Pacers
Williams racked up three rebounds and one steal in 15 minutes during Friday's 121-117 loss to the Pacers.
Williams saw just 15 minutes Friday after playing 32 minutes in his last appearance. The rookie was quiet, failing to put a shot up and only pulling down three rebounds. Considering the Thunder use a very fluid rotation, it will be hard to trust Williams in fantasy for the rest of the season.... See More ... See Less
Thunder's Shai Gilgeous-Alexander: Nears 40-point effort Friday
Gilgeous-Alexander accumulated 39 points (11-22 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 17-17 FT), nine rebounds, four assists, one block and one steal across 38 minutes before fouling out of Friday's 121-117 loss to the Pacers.
Despite Gilgeous-Alexander returning with nearly 40 points with a perfect 17-for-17 showing from the charity stripe, the Thunder could not hold a slim lead entering the fourth quarter and remain on the fringe of the playoffs, sporting a half-game lead over the Mavericks. Primarily a scorer, SGA threw his hat in the ring on the glass Friday, nearly notching his fourth triple-double of the season and third with points and rebounds. He'll remain a key cog down the stretch if OKC is to claim a spot in the Play-in Tournament.... See More ... See Less
Thunder's Lindy Waters: Makes return from foot injury
Waters (foot) finished with eight points (3-7 FG, 2-6 3Pt), two rebounds, one assist and one block across 17 minutes in Friday's 121-117 loss to the Pacers.
Waters recaptured a spot in the Thunder rotation after missing the previous three games while recovering from left foot plantar fasciitis. The third-year wing has now received double-digit minutes in five consecutive appearances and is averaging 6.0 points, 1.8 rebounds, 1.6 three-pointers and 0.8 assists per game over that stretch....

Thunder's Lindy Waters: Available Friday
Waters (foot) will be in uniform for Friday's game versus the Pacers.
After three straight absences, Waters was upgraded from out to questionable for Friday's contest and will ultimately give it ago.

Thunder's Shai Gilgeous-Alexander: Will play Friday
Gilgeous-Alexander (ankle) will play in Friday's game against the Pacers.
Gilgeous-Alexander was initially ruled out for Friday's game before being upgraded to questionable, and he'll ultimately see the floor following a two-game absence. In 10 appearances this month, he's averaged 32.9 points, 4.9 rebounds, 4.1 assists and 1.9 steals in 35.0 minutes. With SGA's return, Isaiah Joe should head back to the bench.... See More ...

Thunder's Shai Gilgeous-Alexander: Upgraded to questionable
Gilgeous-Alexander (ankle) has been upgraded to questionable for Friday's game against the Pacers, Andrew Schlecht of The Athletic reports.
Gilgeous-Alexander was slated to miss a third straight game, according to the Thunder's initial injury report, but it appears he'll have a chance to suit up Friday. However, his official availability likely won't be known until closer to the 7:00 p.m. ET tipoff. If the superstar point guard is cleared, fewer minutes with be available for Isaiah Joe, Tre Mann and Aaron Wiggins.... See More ... See Less

Thunder's Shai Gilgeous-Alexander: Won't play Friday
Gilgeous-Alexander (ankle) won't take the floor Friday versus the Pacers.
Gilgeous-Alexander will miss out on his third consecutive tilt Friday as he continues to rest his left ankle. Isaiah Joe, Tre Mann and Aaron Wiggins are candidates to see some additional run again, while SGA will shift his sights toward Sunday versus Phoenix for his next opportunity to suit up....

Thunder's Aaron Wiggins: Provides 19 points off bench
Wiggins had 19 points (8-11 FG, 3-3 3Pt), four rebounds, two assists, two blocks and one steal across 32 minutes during Wednesday's 107-106 victory over Detroit.
Wiggins provided a major spark off the Oklahoma City bench, racking up 13 points in the first half alone on 5-of-6 shooting from the field, including 3-of-3 from beyond the arc. His big first two quarters allowed Wiggins to earn more playing time in the second half, with the 32 minutes he played marking his most since March 7. Given the inconsistency with which head coach Mark Daigneault tends to use his reserves with the exception of Isaiah Joe, Wiggins can't be counted on to get heavy minutes on any sort of regular basis....

Thunder's Luguentz Dort: Posts 20 points, three steals
Dort ended with 20 points (7-15 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 3-5 FT), six rebounds, one assist and three steals in 38 minutes during Wednesday's 107-106 win over the Pistons.
It wasn't the best start for Dort on the offensive end as the forward shot just 37.5 percent from the floor in the first half, though he did add four rebounds and a game-high three steals. He found his stroke in the second half, knocking down four of seven field-goal attempts for another 11 points to notch his third 20-point game this month. Dort has also collected at least six rebounds in six straight.... See More ... See Less
Thunder's Jalen Williams: Game-high 27 points in win
Williams finished Wednesday's 107-106 victory over the Pistons with 27 points (11-19 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 4-4 FT), eight rebounds, six assists and one block in 37 minutes.
Williams put together a solid first half with 10 points on 4-of-9 shooting from the field to go along with four rebounds and two assists. However, he was especially productive in the second half by pouring in another 17 points, 10 of which came in the fourth quarter on 5-of-7 shooting as the Thunder pulled out the one-point victory at home. The Oklahoma City forward led the contest with 27 points while also grabbing a team-high eight rebounds. He's now broken the 20-point mark in three straight games.... See More ... See Less
