NBA rumors: Shai Gilgeous-Alexander to miss time due to foot injury

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.
