Shai Gilgeous-Alexander News
Oklahoma City Thunder guard Shai Gilgeous-Alexander led his team in scoring in a losing effort to the Jazz Wednesday. Gilgeous-Alexander wasn't efficient, as he scored 18 points on just 7 of 17 shooting from the field and 1-for-7 shooting from deep, adding four boards and a pair of assists. Despite his disappointing performance, the 23-year-old was right where fantasy managers want him to be from a usage perspective, as he led the team with 33 minutes played and 17 shot attempts. Gilgeous-Alexander should bounce back in a tasty matchup on Friday against the Rockets, who just allowed 124 points to the Timberwolves.
Oklahoma City Thunder point/shooting guard Shai Gilgeous-Alexander (foot) will be down for at least the next two weeks as he continues to rehab plantar fasciitis, head coach Mark Daigneault revealed Friday. Gilgeous-Alexander faces a muddled path to returning to action this season, especially as OKC has shown a propensity for erring on the side of caution as it pertains to their players' health in 2020-21. Theo Maledon and Luguentz Dort figure to continue seeing the largest role increases with Gilgeous-Alexander unavailable, although Ty Jerome and Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk will also get added chances with the second unit. There will only be just over two weeks remaining on the calendar even in the best-case scenario for Gilgeous-Alexander, meaning that the vast majority of season-long managers can begin to consider cutting ties in redraft formats.
Oklahoma City Thunder guard Shai Gilgeous-Alexander (foot) and forward Aleksej Pokusevski (arm) are both out for Friday's game against the Pistons. Gilgeous-Alexander remains out with plantar fasciitis- and it wouldn't be entirely surprising to see the team shut him down for the remainder of the season with little left to play for. Pokusevski's absence should mean continued opportunities for Darius Bazley, who had 22 points and eight rebounds in his most recent outing.
Oklahoma City Thunder guard Shai Gilgeous-Alexander (plantar fasciitis) will be out until at least mid-April. Gilgeous-Alexander will be reevaluated at that point, per head coach Mark Daigneault. It's not very encouraging that the team has yet to name an exact timetable for his return, though there's still at least some hope that he'll be able to return before the end of the season. Guard Theo Maledon will continue to benefit from Gilgeous-Alexander's absence, as he has averaged 13.4 points, 5.2 rebounds, 2.4 assists, and 1.7 steals per game over his last five contests.
