I believe Jerrett was sent down so he could get some live practice time, something the Thunder weren't doing today.
So, the Thunder have recalled Grant Jerrett from the Blue. He was sent down about three hours ago.
Strange: Thunder assigned Grant Jerrett to the OKC Blue earlier this morning. Just sent out a release recalling him back to the Thunder.
The Thunder has recalled Grant Jerrett from the Oklahoma City Blue..3 1/2 hours after sending him down.
I think it's more a matter of the Thunder being leery of recovery times & being careful to not provide estimates that change & end up wrong
I don't think the Thunder is being secretive w/ the timelines on those two. The team is generally good when it comes to disclosing injuries.
I understand everyone wanting updates on their availability. But they both seem to be a ways away. Far enough that daily updates are futile.
I'm trying to get more detailed info on Perry Jones and Andre Roberson. But it doesn't look like either is anywhere near returning.
Thunder game notes still listing both Andre Roberson and Perry Jones as OUT tomorrow against the Rockets.
Just to be sure, I dutifully asked Scott Brooks if he'd start Perk against Dwight Howard tomorrow. The answer was no. He's sticking w/ Adams
Perry Jones and Andre Roberson both did not practice today. Unlikely either is available tomorrow against the Rockets.
Grant Jerrett assigned to the OKC Blue. Big man has been out after offseason ankle surgery. Good sign for his recovery.

Love our Team effort tonight! Thunder up!
Reggie Jackson not taking the 'Brandon Jennings just got hot' excuse: "You can tip your cap. Or you can just get a stop."
Jackson: "Anybody who watched the game, Brandon Jennings definitely destroyed Reggie Jackson. I lost the matchup and that's why we lost."
Jackson: "I failed my teammates. They played great. We were never supposed to go to overtime. I let them down tonight."
Reggie Jackson on that late miss: "Loved it. Loved the look I got...My teammates played great. Should have never gone to overtime.
Reggie Jackson: "Anyone who watches the game, Brandon Jennings destroyed Reggie Jackson. Lost the matchup and that's why we lost tonight."
Reggie Jackson pretty hard on himself after the game: "I lost the game for us."
The Thunder shot 36 3-pointers tonight. Serge Ibaka hoisted a game-high nine...five more than Josh Smith.
Scott Brooks on the 6 FT attempts and the 36 3s: "That's not a good ratio. Hopefully we won't have a game like that again (knocks on wood)."
Let me rephrase that: Since 1985, there have been only four games with a team taking fewer free throws and makes than that.
Thunder went 3-of-11 from the FT line in a 2-point loss to Memphis and 1-of-6 from the FT line in an OT loss to Detroit. Killer.
Pistons beat OKC 96-89 in OT. Lamb with 24 and 10 boards, Jackson 20 and 12 assists, Ibaka 19 and 10 rebounds, Morrow 10 (4-15 shooting).
Nightmare OT takes away a game the Thunder should've had. OKC loses 96-89 to Detroit, drops to 3-7 this season.
Final: Pistons 96, Thunder 89.
Jeremy Lamb with a new career-high of 24 points.
Make that 25 points for Brandon Jennings in the second half, 29 in game. Letting the Thunder bench know about it. That coulda been dagger.
The Pistons have run terrible offense in this overtime, but Brandon Jennings is just making impossible shots.
Brandon Jennings has taken over this ballgame.
Twenty second-half points for Brandon Jennings.
Josh Smith is seething about anything Steven Adams does.
Thunder went iso with Jackson and got a pretty solid look. Jackson lost his balance slightly which caused him to fade more than he wanted.
Jackson's turnaround fadeaway rolls off the rim as time expires. We'll go into overtime.
Jackson's fadeaway rims out at the buzzer -- overtime in Oklahoma City.
OT in OKC. Thunder-Pistons tied at 82.
How about Serge for 3 for the win?
My guess: High Jackson-Adams screen-and-roll, with either a Reggie pull-up, or a wrap-around pass to a corner shooter.
Lot of contact (Adams went straight up). Refs don't blow the whistle on Singler's drive. Goes down as a turnover. OKC ball, 10.6 sec left
Thunder get a stop. OKC ball, tied 82-82, 10.6 seconds left.
That was a pretty ridiculous make from Morrow too. He was juggling the thing almost all the way up until his release.
Anthony Morrow 2-of-8 from three tonight, but just drilled a huge go-ahead one. Thunder up 80-79, 2:13 left.
Thunder have clawed back from nine down to take an 80-79 lead on an Anthony Morrow 3 with 2:13 left.

Pistons lead the Thunder 67-66 after three. Jackson with 18 and 9 assists, Lamb 17-8-3, Ibaka 12.
I never saw Jennings talk nearly this much whenever Westbrook was on the court. Even going back to Milwaukee. Never looked confident.
Brandon Jennings and Kevin Durant have been playfully chirping at each other all game. Good stuff. However...
Thunder now 1-of-6 from the free throw line tonight and 4-of-17 in their past two home games. Brutal.
Pistons recognized it exploited it fantastically the first time. Swing, swing. Drummond just mised a dunk. Great offense. Just missed.
Currently watching: Russell Westbrook singing along to Shake It Off during this timeout.
Pistons have a clear mismatch with Anthony Morrow on Josh Smith but are determined to force-feed Greg Monroe against Ibaka. ????
Easily Jeremy Lamb's best half of the season: 12 points, 5 rebounds, 3 assists, 2 steals, 5/8 FG, 2/3 3FG, a +10.

Not the best stretch of Josh Smith's career: flagrant foul, obvious goaltend, airballed free throw all in two minutes of game action.
Call upgraded to a Flagrant 1 on Josh Smith.
Call is changed to a flagrant foul on Josh Smith.
Refs rule it a common foul. Reviewing the play (hip check) now to determine if it meets the criteria for a technical foul.
Refs are reviewing the play. Ruling on the floor is a common foul.
Josh Smith takes a shot at Steven Adams. Little bit of a hip-check/shove kind of thing.
Steven Adams just got to Josh Smith. First victim of the year.
It's early, but Serge Ibaka hasn't been the same shot-blocker as previous seasons. Looks a little sluggish on D.
I've figured out what Nick Collison's 3-point celebration is: A brief moment of shock that it actually went in.
Reggie Jackson with a terrific opening quarter as well. Doing it on both ends but has 12 points and four assists. He's 5-6 from the floor.
Thunder up 30-21 on the Pistons, end of the first quarter. Reggie Jackson continues his strong play: 12 points, 4 assists, 5/6 FG
Lamb comes out strong and Brooks rewards him by playing him the entire first quarter. Has nine points on 4-7 shooting. OKC up, 30-21.
Caron Butler picking up right where he left off in OKC, missing a wide open corner 3 front iron.
Weird thing I've noticed: Sebastian Telfair kisses the ball every time he receives it on an inbounds.
Reggie Jackson is straight up ballin. He's got 12 already on 5-6 shooting, with four assists.
Anthony Morrow enters to a nice ovation. Fans already fell in love with him before his first home appearance.
