  • Terrance Ferguson - G - Oklahoma City Thunder

    Sunday's injury report has Terrance Ferguson listed as out for Monday.

    Ferguson is away from the Thunder to tend to a personal matter. Hamidou Diallo should start again while Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot will look to build on his solid performance from Saturday. Only deep-league owners need to pay attention here.

  • Alex Abrines - G - Oklahoma City Thunder

    Alex Abrines (illness) is currently listed as out for Monday's game.

    Abrines was able to return to partial practice on Sunday and he might not be ready to go tomorrow. Hamidou Diallo and Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot will handle the minutes at shooting guard with Terrance Ferguson also out.

  • Russell Westbrook - G - Oklahoma City Thunder

    Russell Westbrook is listed as out for Monday's game in Sunday's injury report.

    Westbrook just welcomed a pair of twins into the world and the team will give him all the time he needs. Congratulations to the Westbrook family. That said, these injury reports aren't the most official sources in the world, and if Westbrook wants to return tomorrow and his ankle checks out we could see him suit up. Things could change here though we're expecting Westbrook to take another day or two off.

  • Russell Westbrook - G - Oklahoma City Thunder

    Russell Westbrook was "basically able to do everything" at Friday's practice and Saturday's shootaround, according to Billy Donovan, though the Thunder never got to the point of evaluating him for game action since he left the team to tend to a personal matter.

    Westbrook does appear close to a return, and it'll be dependent on when he rejoins the team. The practice is an encouraging step but the Thunder want to know how his ankle responds to that activity. It sounds like he could be back within the week.

  • Alex Abrines - G - Oklahoma City Thunder

    Alex Abrines (illness) was back at practice on Sunday, though he was limited to shooting and non-contact drills.

    Abrines sat out on Saturday, and with Terrance Ferguson also out it was Hamidou Diallo and Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot handling the minutes at shooting guard. If Abrines can get back into the lineup before Ferguson he'll be worth a look as a 3-point specialist in deep leagues.

  • Terrance Ferguson - G - Oklahoma City Thunder

    Terrance Ferguson (personal) was unable to practice on Sunday.

    There's no timetable for his return. Ferguson sat out on Saturday, allowing Hamidou Diallo to start and Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot to get his first real minutes of the season. TLC has interesting skills but is simply buried on the depth chart when the Thunder are healthy. Alex Abrines also missed that game, so Billy Donovan might be looking at a two-man group at SG for as long as Ferguson and Abrines are out.

  • Russell Westbrook - G - Oklahoma City Thunder

    Russell Westbrook (personal) did not practice on Sunday and there's no timetable for his return.

    Well, at least it isn't his ankle. There's no telling if his ankle is actually healthy or not but his current absence is not injury-related. With Westbrook likely to need some full practices before returning to action, Dennis Schroder is looking at another week of solid production.

  • Paul George - F - Oklahoma City Thunder

    Paul George continued his hot run on Saturday, notching 32 points, 11 rebounds, three steals, three blocks and three 3-pointers in a win over the Suns.

    George went 9-of-22 from the field and hit all 11 attempts from the free throw line. PG has been electrifying over his last five, averaging 27.8 points, 10.0 rebounds, 5.0 assists, 2.6 steals, 0.8 blocks and 4.0 3-pointers while shooting .457 on over 21 shots per game. Life's good without Russell Westbrook but it's not like George is going to slip outside of the top-15 when OKC is at full strength.

  • Steven Adams - C - Oklahoma City Thunder

    Steven Adams scored a season-high 26 points against the Suns on Saturday.

    Adams added 10 rebounds and a steal while going 11-for-15 from the field. There's not much left to say about Adams' consistently excellent production, so fantasy owners should kick back and enjoy his exploits.

  • Jerami Grant - F - Oklahoma City Thunder

    Jerami Grant finished Saturday's win with 14 points, six rebounds, three assists, two blocks and a 3-pointer in 32 minutes of action.

    This looks to be the new normal for Grant, who has grown from shot-blocking specialist to must-own asset in 12-team leagues. The power forward spot should be his for the rest of the year.

  • Dennis Schroder - G - Oklahoma City Thunder

    Dennis Schroder delivered 15-5-7 with four assists on Saturday but also committed five turnovers and shot 6-of-15 from the field.

    That's the Schroder that fantasy owners have come to know over his time in the league — the counting stats will be there but so will the turnovers and bad shooting nights. At the end of the day he's worth the trouble but it does put a hard cap on his ceiling. Keep him in all lineups until Russell Westbrook (ankle) is ready to go.

  • Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot - G/F - Oklahoma City Thunder

    While Hamidou Diallo started with Alex Abrines (illness) out, it was Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot who made the biggest impression with 25 minutes, 12 points, four rebounds and a 3-pointer on Saturday.

    TLC had played 11 minutes all season before tonight, and hopefully this is a sign of things to come. He's a long way from the standard-league radar but Luwawu-Cabarrot might offer more upside than Abrines, Diallo and Terrance Ferguson. This feels like a fluke, so we'll see what happens in the next one.

  • Alex Abrines - G - Oklahoma City Thunder

    Alex Abrines has been ruled out of Saturday's game due to an illness and Hamidou Diallo will start at shooting guard.

    With both Abrines and Terrance Ferguson out, we will get a good look at Diallo once again. He's shown some flashes in the past and will get a chance to earn rotation minutes tonight.

  • Russell Westbrook - G - Oklahoma City Thunder

    Russell Westbrook is not with the Thunder on Saturday, leaving after shootaround to attend to a personal matter.

    He's been sidelined with a sprained ankle but has been mending quite well. The fact that he's out for personal reasons and not the ankle, is a good sign pointing to a return to the court soon.

  • Alex Abrines - G - Oklahoma City Thunder

    Alex Abrines (illness) missed Saturday's shootaround but could still suit up against the Suns.

    Terrance Ferguson is out so there will be extra work available at shooting guard. If Abrines can't go we'll see lots of Hamidou Diallo. Maybe Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot can get into the rotation as well.
