Luguentz Dort News
Oklahoma City Thunder guards Shai Gilgeous-Alexander (illness) and Luguentz Dort (ankle) are available to play in Wednesday's tilt versus the Denver Nuggets. The two starters were getting up some shots at the end of the team's shootaround on Wednesday morning, indicating that they were on the right track to suit up. Gilgeous-Alexander is dealing with a non-COVID illness, but it shouldn't affect his workload against the defending champions. The 25-year-old MVP candidate ranks as fantasy's No. 1 overall player in nine-category leagues, racking up 31.3 points on 54.7% field-goal shooting, 6.4 assists, 5.6 rebounds, 2.2 steals, and 1.2 triples per game for the Thunder in 2023-24. Dort is nursing soreness in his left ankle but should handle his usual allotment of minutes on the wing as a three-and-D presence in OKC's starting five.
Oklahoma City Thunder guard/forward Luguentz Dort (illness) is in danger of missing a second consecutive game, as the team considers him questionable for Saturday's matchup against Minnesota. Dort missed his second game of the season Thursday versus Utah due to an illness, and he's still trying to get over the bug. Cason Wallace jumped into the starting five on Thursday and will likely remain in the role if Dort can't return versus the Timberwolves. The Kentucky product had one of the best games of his young career with a 16-point effort across 32 minutes on Thursday. However, he's set to face the No. 1 ranked defense on Saturday, and it will likely be difficult to repeat the performance.
Oklahoma City Thunder forward Luguentz Dort (illness) has been ruled out ahead of Thursday's game against the Utah Jazz. His status was uncertain coming into this game, but the team will ultimately hold him out due to this illness. Ousmane Dieng (illness) will join him on the bench, which should open up some playing time for the reserve players. Cason Wallace and Isaiah Joe figure to both benefit during Thursday's game. Between the two, Joe is the better streaming option. He's coming off a 15-point performance during his last game.
Oklahoma City Thunder forward Luguentz Dort picked the perfect time to score a season-high during their 123-118 win over the New Orleans Pelicans on Wednesday. He ended with 27 points, five rebounds, one assist, and one block while shooting 8-for-14 from the floor and 4-for-8 from beyond the arc. Dort is always going to be one of most important rotational players on the team, so when he's playing well, it usually means good things for the entire team. He should also have a field day with the struggling wings of the Timberwolves in their next contest.
