Full injury report for Tuesday’s Thunder vs. Sixers matchup

The Oklahoma City Thunder continue a five-game road trip when they face the Philadelphia 76ers on Tuesday. It’s the second matchup of the season between the two squads.

The Thunder (52-22) could be without arguably their two best players. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander (quad contusion) and Jalen Williams (ankle sprain) are questionable.

After making his return from a two-game absence, it looks like the quad contusion continues to hobble Gilgeous-Alexander.

Ousmane Dieng (G League assignment) is out. Lindy Waters III (G League assignment) is out. Keyontae Johnson (G League two-way) is out. Olivier Sarr (G League two-way) is out. Adam Flagler (G League two-way) is out.

Meanwhile, the Sixers (40-35) could be without their two best players. Joel Embiid (meniscus procedure) is out but is inching closer to a return following a lengthy absence.

Tyrese Maxey (hip tightness) is questionable. Robert Covington (knee bone bruise) is out. De’Anthony Melton (lumbar spine bone stress) is out.

Ricky Council IV (G League two-way) is out. Terquavion Smith (G League two-way) is out. Jeff Dowtin Jr. (G League two-way) is out.

This will be the first night of a road back-to-back for the Thunder. In their last contest, they escaped with an exciting win over the New York Knicks on Sunday. Gilgeous-Alexander hit a game-winner and Williams scored 33 points.

Meanwhile, the Sixers picked up a much-needed win over the Toronto Raptors on Sunday to snap a three-game lose streak.

Tip off from Philadelphia is set for 6:30 p.m. CT.
