The OKC Thunder are back in action in downtown Oklahoma City as the Thunder welcome the Dallas Mavericks to the Paycom Center for a Sunday evening tilt.
Tonight’s contest will tip-off at 6 p.m. local time as the OKC Thunder will miss Darius Bazley, Tre Mann, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, and Jeremiah Robinson-Earl who are all still in the league’s health and safety protocols.
OKC Thunder see Luka Doncic return to the Dallas Mavericks
On top of missing a few key contributors to the COVID protocols, the Oklahoma City Thunder will also miss Vit Krejci and list Lu Dort as questionable for tonight’s tilt against the Mavericks.
As the OKC Thunder gets Josh Giddey back, it is almost like the classic “One step forward two steps back” as the team has missed having an additional playmaker on the floor next to Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, but as Giddey returns, SGA exits stage left for presumably six days at least.
