Oklahoma City Thunder point guard Shai Gilgeous-Alexander just wrapped up his third year with the franchise, the last two of which have seen the team combine for 46 regular-season wins. Despite that, Gilgeous-Alexander, the face of the team, remains committed, saying of his relationship with head coach Mark Daigneault and general manager Sam Presti, "Every time we talk, I get a little bit more excited I'm excited for the future," per Joe Mussatto of The Oklahoman. The 23-year-old is coming off having set a career high in scoring (24.5 PPG) this year despite being setback by injuries once again. But he did attempt 18.8 shots on a nightly basis, an indication that his role as the primary scoring option with OKC is not going to change heading into 2022-23, further elevating his appeal as the Thunder work toward playoff contention again.
Oklahoma City Thunder point/shooting guards Shai Gilgeous-Alexander (ankle) and Tre Mann (hamstring) have been deemed unavailable to play in Wednesday's contest vs. Utah. Gilgeous-Alexander's season comes to a close due to right ankle soreness, while Mann has been down with a strained right hamstring since March 26. The Thunder backcourt has been ransacked by injuries throughout the year, leaving Theo Maledon, Zavier Simpson, and Vit Krejci to see the vast majority of minutes over the final three games of the year. Barring an update saying otherwise, fantasy managers can anticipate Mann missing the rest of his impressive rookie campaign.
Oklahoma City Thunder point guard Shai Gilgeous-Alexander (ankle) has been ruled out for Monday's contest vs. Portland due to a sore right ankle. Gilgeous-Alexander's absence will mark his third in a row due to the ailment, paving the way for Tre Mann and Theo Maledon to continue seeing elevated offensive roles. With OKC battling injuries up and down the depth chart, any member of the starting five figures to see sizable DFS appeal, with Aleksej Pokusevski and Isaiah Roby standing out. Since the All-Star break, Gilgeous-Alexander has averaged a whopping 30.4 PPG across 13 contests, all while shooting 54.2% overall. His next chance to take the floor comes Wednesday against the Hawks.
The Oklahoma City Thunder have ruled out point guard Shai Gilgeous-Alexander (ankle) for Wednesday's game against the Orlando Magic. According to the injury report, he is dealing with right ankle soreness. However, the 20-52 Thunder are likely just trying to weaken their arsenal against the 20-53 Magic to help their tanking process. With SGA sidelined, we should see a lot of offense fall on the shoulders of rookie Tre Mann, who scored a career-high 35 points on Monday. He's a must-start player for the game. Aleksej Pokusevski should see a usage boost as well. He's startable if you can risk a potentially devastating field goal percentage.
