Thunder injury report

The Oklahoma City Thunder may be able to hand the Houston Rockets their 20th loss in a row — but they’re not making it easy on themselves.

Guard Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and center Al Horford will miss the game, according to Locked on Thunder’s Rylan Stiles. Gilgeous-Alexander is out with right shoulder soreness, and Horford will sit for rest on the first night of a back-to-back.

They join an expansive injured list. Forward Darius Bazley remains out with a left shoulder contusion that head coach Mark Daigneault called “week-to-week” on Thursday.

Guard George Hill remains out with a thumb injury and Josh Hall is out with left knee soreness.

With this report, wing Lu Dort is the only everyday starter who will be available for the Thunder.

Guard Theo Maledon is available, according to Stiles, and as a player who has started frequently with Hill injured, will likely get the nod at a guard spot.

As for the rest of the lineup, Oklahoma City will get a chance to dive deeper into its depth and explore the roster, as Daigneault has said is the organization’s intention on several instances.

Tipoff for the Thunder (17-24) and Houston (11-29) is scheduled for 1 p.m. on Sunday at Toyota Center in Houston.
