The six regulars are Westbrook, Lamb, Morrow, Roberson, Jones and Adams. My guess is Morrow comes off the bench and the other five start.

Darnell Mayberry

That leaves 10 healthy players tonight. Four are camp invitees. So presumably six players are in contention for five starting spots tonight.

Anthony Slater

Steven Adams asked if the extra playing time from injuries could be blessing in disguise: "Nah...It's pretty crap what happened."

Anthony Slater

EIGHT players out with injury for the Thunder tonight: KD, Perk, Ibaka, Collison, McGary, Jackson, Telfair, Jerrett.

Darnell Mayberry

Oh yeah, and Nick Collison (ankle) is out as well.

Anthony Slater

Reggie Jackson doing some individual court work right now, too. No wrist brace, looks good.

Anthony Slater

Kendrick Perkins back on the court shooting around with the bigs today. First time I've seen that this year.

Darnell Mayberry

Oh yeah, and Reggie Jackson (wrist) is out as well.

Darnell Mayberry

Ibaka (ankle), Telfair (thumb), McGary (foot), Durant (foot), Perkins (quad) & Jerrett (ankle) are all out tonight against Memphis.

Westbrook pretty adamant his role won't be changing. Says he just wants to run the team as always. Mmmhmm.

A thunderstorm is blowing into OKC, at 35 mph, in Thunder colors. Oklahoma's pouring one out for you tonight, KD: http://t.co/21kcDbhhnf

Everyone's always thought Russell Westbrook not-so-secretly wanted be OKC's alpha. Well, here's his chance: es.pn/1tTrL9c

Darnell Mayberry

Wikipedia says a Jones fracture was first described by orthopedic surgeon Sir Robert Jones, who sustained the injury while dancing.

Royce Young

In the 41 minutes he played last season with Kevin Durant sitting, Russell Westbrook's usage rate was... 47.5 percent. #whoa

I'm really hoping this is all just one really elaborate rookie hazing scheme.

Royce Young

Now, a couple days after McGary's injury, Durant completely one-ups him again and steals all the attention.

Royce Young

Last week at practice, Mitch McGary was talking to reporters and Durant interrupted him couple questions in and told him to get out of way.

Royce Young

Going on SportsCenter shortly to discuss Kevin Durant's injury.

Royce Young

I just want to go on record and say I'm definitely opposed to injuries. I'm firmly anti-injury, and I'm not changing my mind.

Darnell Mayberry

Sam Presti also says Reggie Jackson may miss a little time as well with a right wrist contusion but will be back relatively soon.

Royce Young

Presti: "He could be playing on it today but he'd be doing further damage to it."

Anthony Slater

Sam Presti on KD's fracture: "He could be playing on it today. But he'd be doing more damage to it."

Anthony Slater

Sam Presti quoting Ernest Hemingway is the most Sam Presti thing ever: "forget your personal tragedy"

Royce Young

Presti says he's been told a Jones fracture is the most common injury for NBA players.

Royce Young

Presti: "In these cases you can either withdraw or advance, and we're going to advance."

Royce Young

Presti: "With any adversity, we're looking for the opportunity."

Anthony Slater

Sam Presti said the team, Durant and his reps will decide best course of medical action in next couple days.

Royce Young

Presti says they are fortunate that Durant alerted them early and that they caught it on the "front end" of the injury.

Anthony Slater

Sam Presti: "We're really fortunate we're catching it when we're catching it...before it becomes an acute issue."

Anthony Slater

Sam Presti said Kevin Durant 'felt a little bit of aching' after practice yesterday.

Royce Young

Presti says Durant told the medical staff he felt an "aching" in his foot.

John Rohde

In 2009-10 season, #Thunder starters missed 6 total starts: missed 79 last year; and now @Kevin Durant. From blessed to cursed. @FranchiseOK

Royce Young

-- > RT @Tom Ziller: Rondo, Beal and Durant injured in training camp/preseason, but FIBA's the real risk, right?

John Rohde

Stressful weekend in Oklahoma - #Sooners should have lost; #okstate could have lost; and @Kevin Durant was lost. @FranchiseOK @steelyonsports

Mitch McGary

Morning world! Stay positive today! Enjoy life

Royce Young

Before that was the 2010-11 season where Westbrook played four games without KD. OKC went 3-1. Russ: 26.7 pts, 7.0 asts, 22.5 shots per game

Royce Young

The last time Westbrook played without Durant was the last game of the 2012-13 season where Durant sat and Westbrook only played 7 minutes.

Royce Young

If Kevin Durant became the Slim Reaper last season, Russell Westbrook might just become the devil himself.

Darnell Mayberry

Kevin Durant fractures right foot; could miss up to two months: newsok.com/article/5352994

John Rohde

The #Thunder's difficult early season sked now incredibly brutal with @Kevin Durant out two months w/foot fracture. @FranchiseOK @steelyonsports

Anthony Slater

Bright side for the Thunder: Early-season injuries are a lot better than late-season ones (Westbrook 2013 playoffs, Serge 2014 playoffs).

Royce Young

Per Wikipedia: "A Jones fracture is a fracture of the diaphysis of the fifth metatarsal of the foot, at the base of the small toe."

Anthony Slater

Kevin Durant has never missed more than eight games in a season. A 6-8 week timetable would mean he'd miss 15-20 games to start year.

Royce Young

Six weeks would have Durant returning in late November. Eight weeks, early December.

Royce Young

Six to eight weeks is what's typical of a Jones fracture surgery but Durant doesn't currently have a timetable until after the procedure.
