Probable starting lineups

Guard Shai Gilgeous-Alexander's status is unclear. On Monday, head coach Mark Daigneault said the guard was out "as of right now" but said he's close. More information in the section below. We'll operate under the assumption he will miss this game.

  • Guard: Justin Jackson

  • Guard: Luguentz Dort

  • Forward: Kenrich Williams

  • Forward: Darius Bazley

  • Center: Al Horford

  • Forward: Derrick Jones Jr.

  • Forward: Robert Covington

Injury reports

Thunder

The injury report from Monday night lists Gilgeous-Alexander as out with a left knee sprain, but here's what Daigneault said that afternoon:

"No update on Shai. Still out as of right now for tomorrow, but he's really close, so you’ll be seeing him soon I think."

Keep an eye out for updates, but right now we will assume he will miss his fourth game in a row. Theo Maledon is also listed as out. He will miss his fifth game in a row due to health and safety protocols.

Blazers

Portland will be missing five players including guard CJ McCollum, who remains out with a left midfoot fracture. Bigs Jusuf Nurkic (right wrist fracture), Zach Collins (left ankle stress fracture) and Harry Giles III (left calf sprain) are out, as is guard Rodney Hood (left foot sprain).
