The Thunder has boarded its charter to NYC and will depart momentarily. Wednesday's game against the Knicks scheduled to go on as of now.
The Thunder is scheduled to fly to NYC around 1 pm CT today. Sounds like a high probability game vs Knicks will be a go on Wednesday.
Minor concern: Steven Adams said he been getting sporadic but "random" migraines since he was 14. Been trying to figure out "trigger points"
Steven Adams on Nikola Pekovic vs Kendrick Perkins: "It was like watching two bears attack each other. It looked amazing."
Scott Brooks says as of now the Thunder are still heading to New York tomorrow. They pushed their flight back, but anticipate going.

Thunder beat the Wolves 92-84. Westbrook 18 and 5 assists, Ibaka 13 and 19 rebounds, Jackson 14, Morrow 14, Waiters 10 and 5 assists.
Final: Thunder 92, Wolves 84. OKC improves to 23-22.
Thunder now 2.5 games back of Phoenix for #8.
Thunder beat the Wolves 92-84 and now let's never speak of this game again.
Never seen a player less excited to check into an NBA game than Miroslav Raduljica just now in an 11-point game with a minute left.
Nice efficient night from Reggie Jackson: 14 points on 5/7 FG.
Anthony Morrow just can't get his 3-point shot going this month. Just 10-41 (0-6 tonight).
In a race with very little competition, Serge Ibaka has been OKC's best player tonight: 13 points, 17 rebounds, 2 steals, 2 blocks.
Every single jumper Westbrook has missed has been short. Second night of a back-to-back coming off a five-game trip possibly a factor.
Westbrook checks back in and immediately takes the first three Thunder shots...despite being 3-16...and not a word from anyone.
Nick Collison is getting dangerously close to a double-double: 7 points and 8 rebounds in 17 minutes.
Second time this season Dion Waiters has had at least 10 points and five assists in a game, first with OKC.
Nick Collison with back-to-back buckets. THIS IS THE GREATEST GAME OF THE SEASON.
Oh, nevermind. Morrow hits the Derek Fisher Memorial toe-on-the-line 2-pointer.
Anthony Morrow hits 3, spontaneously combusts.
Thunder and Wolves shot a combined 12-of-42 in the third quarter. OKC won it 17-16.
Thunder lead 65-56 after three quarters in the worst basketball game you've ever seen. Westbrook has seven points on 3-16 shooting.
Flip Saunders stiff-arming his assistant was one of the top three highlights of this game. Which says a lot.
Flip Saunders with every right to get a technical there. No idea how that is possibly a foul on Wiggins.
Serge Ibaka with 13 points, 14 rebounds tonight. One of the few things going right for OKC.
Mo Williams, probably not going for 50 tonight. One point on 0-8 shooting so far.
One of those games the Thunder are messing around with to the point they're in danger of losing. Which would be not good.
Russell Westbrook's shooting struggles continue -- now 3-of-13 -- and the Wolves are back in it: down 57-54, mid-third.
Perry Jones does a really great job existing on a basketball court.
Steven Adams skyhook over Pekovic. Alright then.
The Thunder played a terrible first half and lead by eight because Wolves.
Nick Collison was just playing a perfect lobbed through ball there. L1 triangle y'all.
What an accidentally perfectly executed play with 1.6 seconds left. That's how it's really done Laettner.
Thunder lead the Wolves 48-40 at half. Ibaka 8 and 7 rebounds, Jackson 8, Westbrook 7 (3-9 shooting), Waiters 7 and 4 assists.
Least impactful half for Russell Westbrook in a long time: 7 points, 1 rebound, 1 assist, 3/9 FG, 3 turnovers. Guarded well by Wiggins.
Reggie Jackson too unselfish there. Shoulda just dunked it.
Dion Waiters with 7 points, 4 assists, 2 rebounds and a steal in the first half. He's a +15 in 14 minutes.
No KD and an extreme off night for Westbrook. Good time to be playing the TWolves. Thunder up 40-27.
Dion Waiters throwing lobs to Reggie Jackson. They're obviously best friends.
Anthony Morrow has never been accused of a lack of passion. He was just hitting himself in the face in celebration after last assist.
Problem: Anthony Morrow shooting 27 percent from three (10-of-37) in January.
Nick Collison fouls Pekovic hard and IMMEDIATELY reached down to help him up. Do not anger the Pek.
A bad-good first quarter for the Durant-less Thunder: Lead 25-19, but definitely did not play very well.
Serge Ibaka active inside in the first quarter: 8 points and 5 rebounds, including 3 on the offensive glass.
Best player out, offense out of sorts, wouldn't be a bad game to feed Steven Adams a batch of times in the post. Two quick buckets early.
Rough start for Russell Westbrook: Four straight missed shots and a bad turnover. OKC down 8-4 to Wolves early.
Thunder start out 2-11. Wolves start out 2-9. Basketball!
Andrew Wiggins starts the game guarding Russell Westbrook.
KD's injury bumps Grant Jerrett to the active list. Mitch McGary still inactive.
Kevin Durant missed 16 games combined his first 7 seasons. Has missed 24 games this yr: 17 for foot fracture, 6 for ankle sprain, 1 for toe.
Perry Jones has officially been inserted into the starting lineup in place of Kevin Durant. And Steven Adams will start.
Perry Jones will start in place of Kevin Durant. PJ3 has been out of the rotation, playing a total of 11 minutes the past eight games.
Russell Westbrook is averaging 21.9 points, 4.7 rebounds and nine assists in 21 career games against Minnesota.
Maybe Reggie Jackson will get to 12 minutes tonight.
With Thunder fighting for playoff spot, there's no 'good' time for a KD absence. But with 7-36 Wolves and 8-37 Knicks up next, this is best.
Of note: Durant's surgery was on his right foot, not the left.
Mildly good sign: Toe is not on same foot as his preseason fracture or ankle sprain last month.
Kevin Durant has a sprained left big toe and is a late scratch tonight against Minnesota. He'll be inactive...Happened late at Cleveland.
As others have reported, no Kevin Durant tonight. Sprained big toe in left foot. Warmed up, couldn't go. Day to day.
Durant went through pregame warm ups anticipating to play tonight but it was more sore than expected. He's day to day with the injury.
Kevin Durant is inactive tonight because of a left big toe sprain. Injured yesterday in Cleveland.
Scott Brooks sounds optimistic about the Knicks-Thunder game being played Wednesday, but "we'll know more tomorrow morning."
Scott Brooks says he doesn't know yet if the Thunder will be able to get to New York. Expects to have a better idea tomorrow morning.
Scott Brooks says "as of right now" Steven Adams will start tonight against Minnesota.
Scott Brooks said "as of right now" Steven Adams will start tonight against the Wolves.
Steven Adams is expected to start tonight.
Man, good thing the Super Bowl wasn't in New York this year, amirite you guys?
My flight to NY on Tuesday already cancelled. Decent chance Thunder-Knicks game on Wednesday gets postponed. Stay tuned.
The Thunder are supposed play at the Knicks on Wednesday. Strong chance that game gets postponed as well.
Seven years later and I still think about this every day. http://t.co/SnRZeBQWgW
