Steven Adams (knee) misses Thunder practice Thursday

Oklahoma City Thunder center Steven Adams (bruised right knee) did not practice on Thursday.

What It Means:

Adams injured his knee on Wednesday, leading to an early exit. He will be re-evaluated on Friday, but with the Thunder being the front leg of a back-to-back set, there's a strong chance Adams will be held out. Nerlens Noel (left ankle sprain) will also be re-evaluated on Friday. If neither big is available, Mike Muscala may be asked to log large minutes.

Adams is averaging 31.7 FanDuel points per game this season. numberFire's models project him for 12.6 points, 8.7 rebounds, 1.3 assists, 0.7 steals, and 1.1 blocks over the rest of the season.
