Thunder guard Alex Abrines (knee) expects to see 10 minutes of game action against the Nuggets on Tuesday.
Abrines has missed the entire preseason so far with a minor knee injury, but will play tonight. It’s really nothing more than a quick stretch to test out the knee and make sure things are good to go for the opener. The young guard is the backup to Andre Roberson and although he is a superior shooter to the latter he is a subpar defender. Unless an injury opens things up he won’t have much fantasy value this season. However, it’s not out of the question the Thunder grow tired of Roberson’s shooting woes and opt to play Abrines more later in the year.
