Full injury report for Saturday’s Thunder vs. Grizzlies matchup

The Oklahoma City Thunder travel on the road to take on the depleted Memphis Grizzlies on Saturday. It’ll be the final matchup between both teams this season as OKC won the first two in blowouts.

The Thunder (46-20) have a clean injury report, with their only absences being players with the G League’s OKC Blue.

Ousmane Dieng (G League assignment), Keyontae Johnson (G League two-way), Olivier Sarr (G League two-way) and Adam Flagler (G League two-way) are out.

Meanwhile, it’s the complete opposite for the Grizzlies (23-44), whose injury report rivals the length of a pharmaceutical receipt. It’s been a lost season for Memphis as it’s dealt with a slew of injuries.

Ja Morant (shoulder labral repair) is out. Vince Williams Jr. (patellar tendonitis) is doubtful. Marcus Smart (finger tear) is out. Brandon Clarke (Achilles tendon repair) is out. Derrick Rose (groin, back recovery) is out.

Ziaire Williams (back, hip flexor strain) is out. Yuta Watanabe (personal reasons) is out. Scotty Pippen Jr. (shin soreness) is questionable. Lamar Stevens (adductor strain) is out.

Jaren Jackson Jr. (quad tendonitis) is questionable. Desmond Bane (ankle sprain) is questionable. Santi Aldama (elbow soreness) is questionable.

This game could mark the return of Bane, who was upgraded to questionable. He’s been out for over two months with an ankle sprain.

In their last contest, the Thunder wrapped a four-game homestand with a nice win over the Dallas Mavericks, who were without Luka Doncic, on Thursday. The win marked the return of Jalen Williams from a one-game absence due to an ankle sprain.

Meanwhile, the depleted Grizzlies suffered a double-digit loss to the lowly Hornets on Wednesday. Memphis has one month left in its injury-riddled season.

Tip off from Memphis is set for 7 p.m. CT.
