Reggie Jackson became the second player in as many games to go down, leaving Friday night’s 118-109 Thunder win at Dallas with what a team official called a right wrist injury. The severity of the injury is unknown, but more details should emerge after Jackson gets re-evaluated Saturday in Oklahoma City. Jackson was unavailable for comment after the game. Oklahoman

Before Friday night’s game, Durant and Tyson Chandler met at center court for a lengthy embrace and conversation. The two won the gold medal together at the 2012 Olympics and seem to share some genuine mutual respect. Oklahoman

The Rockets are widely expected to take a step back this season, thanks to all the depth they squandered on the Bosh dice roll, but they expect to have significant salary-cap room next summer -- when they can chase point guards as accomplished as Goran Dragic and Rajon Rondo if they choose -- as well as in the summer of 2016. Which is when, sources say, they'd like to give Harden an opportunity to serve as Houston's lead recruiter in the pursuit of a free agent named Kevin Wayne Durant. ESPN.com

With the Nationals playing an elimination game in San Francisco and the Redskins hosting the defending Super Bowl champion Seahawks at FedEx Field in primetime, Monday was a big day for D.C. sports fans. Which means it was a big day for Oklahoma City Thunder star and Prince George’s County native Kevin Durant. Durant, whose Natitude is well established with a curly ‘W’ tattoo on his stomach and a custom Nationals jersey, watched the Redskins’ loss to Seattle in a burgundy and gold No. 35 jersey with his name printed on the back. He also wore a Redskins ski cap. Washington Post

Former Xavier standout Semaj Christon will start his professional basketball career in the NBA Development League, his agent said Monday.

As for a possible preseason trade, akin to the James Harden surprise trade, Presti said, “That’s just not something we’ve considered. He’s a guy we see being here for a long time.” These sound like reassuring words, but is it sufficient reassurance to believe in his long-term future in OKC? “My representation and Sam and the Thunder organization, they’re talking,” Jackson shared. “We’ve got a month to try to get things done; hopefully we can figure that out. I definitely like being a part of this team. Let’s just hope they make progress on things. It’s not something that anybody has to talk about anymore or think about it and we can just focus on the season.” Basketball Insiders
