All Thunder players and staff were tested for the COVID-19 virus and the results of the test came back negative.
Finally, a bit of good news here. The testing was done after some consultation with health officials, based on the team's exposure to the Utah Jazz on March 11. Rudy Gobert and Donovan Mitchell of the Jazz tested positive for the coronavirus. The Thunder used a private laboratory to not put undue stress on Oklahoma City's medical system.

As expected, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander (hip contusion) will be available to play against the Jazz on Wednesday after practicing on Tuesday.
SGA missed the first game of his career on Sunday after playing in the first 151 games (including playoffs). He should be ready to finish the season strong as the Thunder try to earn home-court advantage in the first round of the playoffs. In terms of total value, SGA is on track to finish with 3rd/2nd-round value across 8/9-cat leagues while he falls two rounds when looking at his statistics from a per-game perspective.

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander (hip contusion) returned to practice on Tuesday and is expected to play in Wednesday’s game against the Jazz.
Gilgeous-Alexander missed his first game on Sunday but it looks like that should be it. The Thunder are climbing in the Western Conference standings and have incentive to get their budding star guard out there. Make sure to check back on SGA’s status on Wednesday and fire him up as usual.

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander will miss the first game of his career on Sunday because of a right hip contusion.
Gilgeous-Alexander went from game-time decision to out very quickly, which puts a dark cloud over his availability for OKC's three-game slate next week. Look for more from wings like Terrance Ferguson and Hamidou Diallo for as long as SGA remains out, and there's really no pickup to make in standard formats.

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander (hip) will be a game-time decision for Sunday against the Celtics.
Gilgeous-Alexander has been huge for the Thunder and fantasy players alike all season, so hopefully he's able to gut it out on a Sunday that will have huge fantasy playoff implications. He has yet to miss a game in his career. If the trend can't continue today, look for more Dennis Schroder with extra Terrance Ferguson on the wings.

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander scored a team-high 27 points on a blistering 12-of-15 shooting, adding three assists, two steals, two blocks and two threes in a 114-107 win vs. the Pistons on Wednesday.
This was a mouth-watering 9-cat performance for the sophomore guard. SGA is a top-50 player on the season and a top-40 player over the past two months. He's going to produce mid-round value ROS and looks like he can be an early-round player for multiple seasons beyond this year.

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander had a fine night highlighted by three blocks to supplement his 15 points on 7-of-12 shooting, six rebounds, two assists, one steal and one triple in 34 minutes on Tuesday vs. the Clippers.
SGA finds a way to contribute on a nightly basis in one form or another. While he isn't the most consistent player yet, he continues to grow and is a safe bet for mid-round production for the rest of the season.

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander cooled off quickly on Friday in an ugly blowout loss to the Bucks, quietly posting 11 points on 5-of-12 shooting with three rebounds, one 3-pointer and two assists.
The Thunder got steamrolled in this one and they just could not get anything going. SGA has been cruising with mid-to-early round value lately, so consider this just a hiccup and expect a rebound-performance very soon.

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander scored 20 points on 8-of-15 shooting while adding three boards, three dimes, a block and a 3-pointer on Thursday.
Gilgeous-Alexander kept the Thunder in this one with his scoring ability after a slight rough stretch in the first few months, he's absolutely killed it. He's in the top-50 in 9-cat leagues on the season and over the past two months he's been a top-30 player with averages of 18.9 points, 8.0 rebounds, 3.9 assists, 1.0 steals, 1.0 blocks and 1.1 3s on .475 shooting. These are all sustainable and a top-30 finish is likely given how the Thunder have gotten better as the season progresses.

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander had a great outing in Tuesday's tight 124-122 win over the Bulls, recording 21 points (5-of-11 FGs, 9-of-12 FTs), 11 rebounds, two treys, three dimes, one steal and two blocks.
SGA is holding steady, recording back to back games with at least 21 points and 11 rebounds. The dynamic line tonight just moves his needle upward. He's been a top-90 player over the last week but will be able to flirt with top-75 or better value especially with more lines like this in the future.

Shai-Gilgeous Alexander scored 17 points with three boards, seven dimes, a steal and two triples on Thursday.
SGA had a decent night across the board, but was stifled a bit towards the end of the game. He made some solid defensive plays, but overall it wasn't his night on the offensive end as he made some questionable decisions. He's still learning though and a top-50 finish is still in play.

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander went 8-of-12 from the field to post 24 points, six rebounds, four assists and three 3-pointers in Sunday's 111-112 loss to the Celtics.
Chris Paul hit a three at the buzzer to make the score a bit tighter but OKC's late comeback charge came up short. CP3 chipped in 22 points (8-for-15 FG), five rebounds, five assists, two steals and a three. Dennis Schroder added 22 points, seven rebounds, a steal, a block and three 3-pointers off the bench. All three Thunder guards are must-start options and they've made the best out of what looked like a precarious situation coming into the year.
