The Thunder however, don’t plan on playing Adams and Noel together all the time but it’s something that Billy Donovan wants to occasionally try out to see if the two can co-exist on the court. “You want to give those guys opportunities to play with each other,” Donovan said. “We haven’t had as much of time, as I would like, for Nerlens and Steven to play a little bit together. That’s been challenging just because Nerlens was out with his foot and then I threw them into the ‘Blue & White’ scrimmage probably unfairly.
Thunder coach Billy Donovan said Nerlens Noel should be available for Sunday’s Blue and White Scrimmage, but Alex Abrines’ status is in question. Noel returned to practice Saturday after suffering a mid-foot sprain during the week. The 6-foot-11, 220-pounder was rested Friday. Donovan said the Thunder will find out more about Abrines on Sunday, as the 6-6, 200-pound shooting guard is battling back spasms.
Storyline: Alex Abrines Injury
Most of the guys from last year are returning, plus the team added players like Dennis Schroeder and Nerlens Noel this offseason. The Western Conference is obviously loaded, but how do you think this team stacks up in the West? Jerami Grant: “I definitely feel like we’re contenders. We have amazing talent on our team, honestly, we’re right up there with the other top teams in the West. We have a great opportunity to do something really special, as long as everyone is focused and everyone is playing their hardest. If that happens, I think we’ll be fine and we’ll definitely get to where we want to get to.”
