Oklahoma City Thunder Roster Report 2009-12-02

ROTATION: Starters -- Point guard Russell Westbrook, Shooting guard Thabo Sefolosha, Small forward Kevin Durant, Power forward Jeff Green, Center Etan Thomas. Bench -- Guard James Harden, Guard Mike Wilks, Guard Kyle Weaver, Guard Kevin Ollie, Forward D.J. White, Center Serge Ibaka.

PLAYER NOTES:

--F Kevin Durant scored 25 against Houston on Sunday, but he missed all three of his 3-point shots. The woes behind the arc were contagious, as OKC was 1-of-15 from distance.

"Some went in and out," Durant said. "I think there were good looks, but you just can't make every shot. We've got to continue to shoot them and be confident in them, and hopefully they go down next game."

--C Etan Thomas made his first start in a Thunder uniform, but wasn't effective in place of Nenad Krstic. Thomas had just six points and three rebounds in 17:13. Backup center Serge Ibaka got more time in the middle, logging 23:05.

--G Mike Wilks was thrust into the lineup Friday, a day after joining the Thunder. He played 9:59 against Milwaukee and another 13:49 Sunday against Houston. The 30-year-old vet didn't have a problem getting up to speed.

"This is a first-class organization that runs some similar plays as other teams," Wilkes said. "It wasn't hard for me to pick things up. So far so good, but I know I have a lot of learning to do."

MEDICAL WATCH:

--G Shaun Livingston (left knee) is on the inactive list. He's expected out for 3-4 weeks, which would put his return at mid-December at the latest.

--G Kevin Ollie (sore knee) underwent minor surgery Monday. He is expected to be out up to four weeks.

--G Kyle Weaver (separated shoulder) underwent surgery Monday. He is expected to be out four months.

--C Nenad Krstic (sore Achilles) is day-to-day.

--F Nick Collison (sore knee) is day-to-day.
