Brandon Rahbar: Shai Gilgeous-Alexander went down hard, grabbed at his leg right above his ankle, painfully shot 2 free throws and darted/limped to the locker room. Hope all is well with SGA.
Rylan Stiles: #Thunder list Shai Gilgeous-Alexander as questionable (right ankle soreness). Darius Bazley, Jeremiah Robinson-Earl, Josh Giddey, Tre Mann, Aleksej Pokusevski remain out in health and safety protocols. Vit Krejci is out. Kenrich Williams is questionable (ankle sprain) vs Knicks.
Joe Mussatto: Shai Gilgeous-Alexander didn't start feeling the symptoms of a concussion until today after he woke up from a nap, per Mark Daigneault. Daigneault said SGA wouldn't have made the trip if they would have known earlier.
Brandon Rahbar: Mark Daigneault says SGA is progressing and wouldn’t rule out Friday or Monday for his return, but thinks it may be just after that. Says it’s nothing long term. “I just saw him in the hallway, jogging to the court. We’re obviously playing the long game.”
Rylan Stiles: Shai Gilgeous-Alexander feels “150-percent.”
Brandon Rahbar: Daigneault on SGA: “He’s got a significant tear. It’s not something you should mess around with. We’re not gonna sacrifice anything long term with any of our guys, especially with a guy like Shai.” This makes sense. Rest is the only things that heals plantar fasciitis.
Joe Mussatto: It's been two weeks since the Thunder said Shai Gilgeous-Alexander (plantar fasciitis) would be re-evaluated in two weeks. No update today from Mark Daigneault other than "he's progressing."
Brandon Rahbar: Mark Daigneault on SGA, who is on the court lightly shooting around right now: "He's on a return to play. A lot of his stuff is in the weight room. He's like an addict. I don't know if we can keep him away from the court. (Laughs). In terms of the time table, I'm not sure."
Thunder guard Shai Gilgeous-Alexander will miss a significant amount of time due to plantar fasciitis in his right foot. “Obviously when we’ve got a guy out for maintenance or for rest, it’s easy to be in the moment and wonder why we’re doing that, but I think this makes it very tangible,” Thunder coach Mark Daigneault said Wednesday.
Daigneault was referencing the wear and tear of a condensed 2020-21 schedule which followed a shortened offseason. Gilgeous-Alexander has had two “maintenance” days since the All-Star break, but Wednesday night against the Grizzlies was not one of those. “This one is an injury that we need to now take a look at,” Daigneault said.
Joe Mussatto: Shai Gilgeous-Alexander is listed as out tonight with right foot plantar fasciitis. George Hill, Darius Bazley and Josh Hall remain out. It looks like Al Horford will play.
Brandon Rahbar: Shai Gilgeous-Alexander will play today. The other four usual starters Lu Dort, Theo Maledon, Darius Bazley and Al Horford are out. Mark Daigneault will wait until closer to game time to announce the starters.
Joe Mussatto: Thunder guard Shai Gilgeous-Alexander will be available tonight after missing the last four games with a left knee sprain. Al Horford (rest) is out on the second night of a back-to-back.

Brandon Rahbar: Mark Daigneault says the team is just exercising caution with Shai: “It’s nothing really serious.” Thunder will see how SGA responds to treatment. Seems like it’s nothing to worry about.

Marc J. Spears: With the hiring of Darvin Ham as the new head coach of the Los Angeles Lakers via @Adrian Wojnarowski, half of the 30 head coaches in the NBA are now black. With Heat head coach Erik Spoelstra (Asian), 16 of the NBA head coaches are of color. The Charlotte Hornets still have an opening.
According to the lawsuit, Mr. Pierce received more than 15 trillion EthereumMax tokens in exchange for tweets endorsing the coin. None of the tweets excerpted in the lawsuit mentioned a business relationship with the token’s creators. Shortly after promoting the project, the lawsuit claimed, Mr. Pierce sold his tokens — an apparent “pump and dump” operation in which he profited by encouraging fans to buy the tokens, before selling his own holdings at a higher price. A lawyer for Ms. Kardashian said the suit’s allegations “lack merit.” Mr. Mayweather, Mr. Pierce and the project’s founders did not respond to requests for comment.
