Oklahoma City Thunder Roster
- Western Northwest
- Paycom Center
Oklahoma City Thunder forward Jalen Williams was in the building to witness history as LeBron James became the NBA's all-time leading scorer, but he had other plans in terms of the game's outcome. The rookie collected 25 points, seven rebounds, two assists, six steals, and one block on 10-for-19 from the floor and 3-for-6 from beyond the arc. Williams turned in a huge game on both ends as he was just one steal shy of the most steals in a game for the season. He now has seven games of three or more steals and five 20-point games.
Oklahoma City Thunder forward Luguentz Dort (hamstring) has been ruled out for Monday's contest against the Golden State Warriors. He's been dealing with a right hamstring strain that kept him out of Friday's game as well. After only missing one game before this injury, it's unfortunate to see Dort have to miss some extended time. While he's out, Aaron Wiggins should see some spot starts and Isaiah Joe will likely get some more time off of the bench.
Oklahoma City Thunder guard Shai Gilgeous-Alexander went for at least 30 points in a fourth consecutive contest Friday against Cleveland, leading his crew to a 112-100 win with a game-high 35 points. He got there with 12-for-21 shooting from the field and a 10-for-11 effort at the foul line. In typical fashion, SGA filled it up in other areas as well, notching five rebounds, eight assists, two steals and one block without a single turnover in 35 minutes. It's been a fantastic campaign for Gilgeous-Alexander, but he has managed to elevate his game even further in January, shooting over 55 percent from the field and averaging 31.1 points. He will look to cap off the big month with another 30-point effort Monday against the defending champions.
Oklahoma City Thunder guard Luguentz Dort (hamstring) is suffering from a hamstring strain that will keep him from playing against the Cleveland Cavaliers on Friday. The 23-year-old has been able to play through a lot of smaller ailments this season as is shown by the fact he's only missed one other game so far. With that being said, the hamstring strain must be a little more serious. While he's out, Tre Mann and Isaiah Joe could be good streaming options in deeper leagues.
Oklahoma City Thunder guard Shai Gilgeous-Alexander has been one of the best players in the league offensively but doesn't have much to show for it as the team suffered their 25th loss of the season. The fifth-year guard out of Kentucky finished with 36 points, five rebounds, seven assists, two steals, and two blocks while going 59.1% from the floor on 22 attempts and hitting his lone three-pointer. He now has 25 30-point games this season and 28 games of 30 or more.
