Warriors vs. Thunder injury report: CP3 questionable

The Golden State Warriors are about to visit the Oklahoma City Thunder in their second and final late addition to the schedule, after being eliminated from the NBA’s inaugural in-season tournament.

Both teams are fairly healthy, after having most of the week off. But there are still some notable names on each team’s availability docket.

Here’s the full injury report.


Out — Gary Payton II (right calf strain)

We haven’t had a GPII update in a while, and we might not get one for a while. The Warriors are deep enough that there’s not too much rush to get Payton back on the court ... they just want to make sure he’s fully healthy for the second half of the season and the playoffs.

Questionable — Chris Paul (general illness)

‘Tis the season for flus and colds and whatnot. Hopefully CP3 is well enough to play, and if not, drink some tea and soup and feel better, Chris!


Available — Ousmane Dieng

Teams don’t always list players who have been removed from the injured list, but the Thunder kindly do (they also list when two-way players will not be playing: Keyontae Johnson is out, while Olivier Sarr and Lindy Waters III are questionable). Dieng, the No. 11 pick a year ago, has been limited to 12 games this season, and hasn’t played in over a week. The power forward returns to OKC’s bench tonight, and will try to carve out a role in their rotation.

And that’s it! Enjoy the game, Dub Nation!
