Injuries are normal in basketball, and every year there's at least one team that draws the short end of the stick and gets hit with a wave. But what the Thunder are going through right now is something else, their playoff chances in the ultra competitive West diminishing every single day. Already facing a month without Kevin Durant or Russell Westbrook, KD-replacement Perry Jones left tonight's game against the Raptors and will not return, with a knee contusion.
Andre Roberson is already missing the game, but at least future-Harden Reggie Jackson is playing after missing the first two games of the season!
Ahh, damn. Jackson would eventually return, but pretty soon Sam Presti's going to be digging up old Sonics player directories and asking if Damien Wilkins and Chris Wilcox are free.
