Bad news came out of the Thunder’s blue and white scrimmage. NewsOk.com has reported that backup point guard Cameron Payne is out indefinitely with a foot injury. The Thunder released this statement on the matter:
Payne, 22, didn’t play much during the Thunder’s 2016 playoff run, but averaged 12 minutes a game in 57 appearances during the regular season. His spot in the rotation will likely be filled by Ronnie Price, a new addition to the team, who averaged 5.3 points in 62 games for the Phoenix Suns in 2015-16. Semaj Christon, a 23-year-old point guard form Xavier, will also see more playing time in Payne’s absence.
