Joe Mussatto @joe_mussatto
Derrick Favors is available tonight, so I’m guessing he gets the start with JRE limited and Roby out. – 6:45 PM

Rylan Stiles @Rylan_Stiles
Isaiah Roby, like Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and Vit Krejci has a right ankle sprain. – 6:45 PM

Joe Mussatto @joe_mussatto
Daigneault said Roby’s ankle sprain isn’t as severe as Shai’s. Roby, SGA and Krejci are all have right ankle sprains. – 6:45 PM

Jason Calmes @BourbonStShots
I don’t have any inside knowledge — but I think it’s worth saying that CJ McCollum (who is rumored to be of Pels interest) is probably near a perfect match in terms of these 3 practical questions:
1. What can Pels reasonably get?
2. What do Pels need?
3. Who is available?

Brandon Rahbar @BrandonRahbar
Mark Daigneault said he’s gonna keep the starters vs Blazers a secret but told us to tweet our guesses.
Okay Mark, I’ll call my shot:
Giddey
Mann
Dort
Bazley
Favors
The wildcard is Wiggins. – 6:35 PM

Assigned to the G League
Leads OKC Blue to a win with 25 points/10 rebounds/4-8 from 3
Recalled back to Thunder with his buddy Poku

For the sickos who like to watch, Monday’s @LockedOnLakers podcast, YouTube version! Among the talking points, 4 of the next 5 games for the Lakers are Blazers (2x), Clippers, Knicks. Crazy to say in January, but these are, not hyperbole, must win.

Jeremiah Robinson-Earl had a nice afternoon with the Blue: 25 points and 10 rebounds in 32 minutes.
He shot 9-15, including 4-8 from three. – 3:04 PM

Christos Tsaltas @Tsaltas46
Inside Josh Giddey’s leadership at Thunder. In his rookie season he’s proving what he’s capable of doing on the floor and with Shai out until All-Star weekend he did a step up as a leader. And he embraced this role.

Oklahoma City Thunder @okcthunder
The Thunder looks to close out the homestand tonight with its first matchup of the season against the Blazers. Following overtime on Friday, OKC enters tonight’s game well-rested thanks to two days off from games.
