How did the injuries to KD and Russ affect the team and who's stepped up? Steven Adams: Oh, man, everyone was devastated when we heard the news, but there are like four other players, too. Even our rookies, when Mitch McGary went down, everyone was down. So when all of our injured players went out, it wasn't just one particular person who came up. It was kind of like our whole team. We understood as a team we had to collectively come together. We knew we weren't going to be the same team without them, but we have to pick up their workload collectively and try to make up for it that way and distribute it amongst the team. That was our whole mindset. complex.com

Telfair, who was attempting to resurrect his NBA career after competing in China last season, posted a farewell message to his Instagram account after the Thunder announced the move. “It’s been a honor and thanks to all the okc fans that showed me love while I was here,” Telfair wrote. “Good luck to all my teammates as they work for a ring! All love #BA #headup” Oklahoman
