Aleksej Pokusevski Questionable Sunday vs. Suns; Lu Dort Not Listed on Injury Report

The Thunder are coming off a 57-point drubbing last night at the hands of the Pacers, but they could have some reinforcements for Sunday’s matchup vs. the Suns. Dort is not listed on the injury report, and he’s been a huge part of the Thunder’s rotation recently. He leads the team with a usage rate of 28.0% in games without Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, Al Horford, and George Hill this season, and he’s averaged 1.03 FanDuel points per minute in those contests. He’s also had a big impact on the team’s success: They’ve increased their Net Rating by +7.7 points per 100 possessions with Dort on the floor since the All-Star break.

Additionally, Pokusevski is questionable after missing yesterday’s game with a knee contusion. Isaiah Roby entered the starting lineup in his absence, so Pokusevski’s return would impact him the most from a fantasy perspective.

Even with the Thunder a bit closer to full strength, they are still expected to lose in convincing fashion vs. the Suns on Sunday. They’re currently listed as 16-point underdogs on FanDuel Sportsbook.
