Oklahoma City Thunder Roster Report 2009-02-21


Oklahoma City Thunder Roster Report 2009-02-21
ROTATION: Starters -- Point guard Russell Westbrook, Shooting guard Kyle Weaver, Small forward Kevin Durant, Power forward Jeff Green, Center Nenad Krstic. Bench -- Guard Earl Watson, Guard Chucky Atkins, Center Robert Swift, Center Nick Collison, Guard Damien Wilkins, Forward Joe Smith, Guard Thabo Sefolosha.

PLAYER NOTES: -- C Nenad Krstic made his second start of the season Friday at Phoenix. He scored 16 and grabbed six rebounds, replacing Nick Collison in a move that was more than just a simple matchup against Shaquille O'Neal.

"We're just going to change it up and give him an opportunity to start," coach Scott Brooks said of Krstic. "It's nothing against Nick. Nick's been playing very well for us. It just gives us a different look. They both are going to play good minutes. We want them to both play well."

--F Chris Wilcox was ultimately traded Thursday to New York because he didn't fit in OKC's long-range plans. There was speculation that the Thunder had to move Wilcox after he was originally part of the failed Tyson Chandler deal.

"We certainly didn't make any decisions based on reaction to that situation," GM Sam Presti said. "That's something that we've tried to be thorough with in our process. We have to make the intelligent decisions for our organization, take the information that we have and do what we think is in the best interest of the team. We did not alter our process."

--C Mo Sene was waived to make room for G Thabo Sefolosha on the 15-man roster. The 6-11 three-year vet from Senegal played in just five games this season and averaged less than five minutes.

MEDICAL WATCH:

--F D.J. White (jaw surgery) had a benign tumor removed Oct. 13. The second phase of the surgery involved mending the jaw with bone graft taken from his hip. He's begun doing light workouts.

--G Desmond Mason (knee surgery) is missing the rest of the season. He is expected to make a full recovery.
