    Hamidou Diallo will be re-evaluated in 4-6 weeks after suffering a hyperextended right elbow.

    Diallo was already set to miss the next two games, but the injury ended up being more serious. Abdel Nader and Terrance Ferguson are likely to pick up the slack.

    Hamidou Diallo will not play on Monday or Wednesday due to a sprained right elbow.

    Diallo already dealt with a knee sprain before injuring his elbow on Friday against the Lakers. Diallo is averaging 8.8 points and 3.8 rebounds in 21.3 minutes per game this season but has had trouble staying on the court. Abdel Nader could see a few more minutes in the meantime.

    Abdel Nader scored 11 points on 5-of-12 shooting (including a three) with eight rebounds, two assists and one steal in 14 minutes off the bench in Wednesday's finale against the Bucks.

    Nader saw action in 61 games and averaged 11.4 mpg. His stat set is pretty deficient and fantasy owners can safely watch him from the wire, even in Dynasty formats.

    Abdel Nader tallied 15 points on 4-of-10 shooting with three 3-pointers and two steals in 23 minutes in a win over the Grizzlies on Sunday.

    He saw more minutes due to Paul George missing this one, but he should not be owned in any formats and can be left on the wire.

    Abdel Nader (illness) is available to play on Tuesday.

    The Thunder will be at full strength for this matchup with the Magic. Nader isn't usually a fantasy option, but he's there if they need him.

    Abdel Nader is questionable to play vs. the Magic on Tuesday with an illness.

    He's been dealing with this illness since the weekend and appears to not have fully recovered yet. He has not been a fantasy option even in deep leagues, so no lineup worries here.

    Abdel Nader (illness) has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Celtics.

    Nader has been a solid rotation piece for the Thunder this year but they have enough wing types to fill in any spot minutes he leaves behind. It's not a good spot for fantasy value.

    Abdel Nader took full advantage of garbage time against the Knicks, scoring 16 points in the fourth quarter of Monday's win.

    Nader ended up with 20 minutes on the day and was able to add six rebounds, two assists, two steals and two threes to his scoring numbers. He's emerged as a quality depth piece for OKC and is certainly on the radar in leagues with 20 teams or more. We wouldn't feel entirely comfortable with Nader since the return of Alex Abrines figures to hurt him, but he's played well enough over the last few weeks to stay on the court, even if it's only for a handful of minutes a night.

    Abdel Nader only managed three points on 1-of-5 shooting in 16 minutes as the starting shooting guard in Sunday's loss to the Mavs.

    He scored 18 points on Friday, but he was not able to replicate his career-best performance on Sunday. He was only able to add one rebound and one steal to the box score as well. He does not hold any fantasy value in even the deepest of leagues.

    Abdel Nader will start at shooting guard on Sunday night with Terrance Ferguson still under the weather.

    Nader put up 18 points on Friday after Ferguson left just seven minutes in because of an illness. He's active for this one and may play, however, so it seems like OKC is just going to give him a few extra minutes on the sidelines early on to see if his stomach settles. There's no fantasy appeal here outside of 30-team formats.

    Abdel Nader — yes, Abdel Nader — set multiple career-highs on Friday with 33 minutes, 18 points, five rebounds and two 3-pointers while shooting 7-of-12 overall.

    Terrance Ferguson (illness) left after seven minutes, Alex Abrines was out and Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot isn't in the rotation, but this one was truly out of nowhere. Nader had played 55 minutes all season prior to this explosion, and while the Thunder did win this one handily they didn't pull away until the fourth. This one wasn't a garbage time special. Owners in 30-teamers should see where this goes but we're expecting it to end up as a total fluke.

    Abdel Nader (knee) will not have any minutes restrictions to open the season.

    Left knee soreness limited Nader in preseason but he might not even be in the rotation so this news has almost no impact in fantasy.

    Billy Donovan said that Abdel Nader "was fine" in Sunday's practice.

    Nader spent a lot of time watching because of knee soreness in preseason. His presence or lack thereof means nothing in fantasy circles.
