Thunder basketball is BACK.

It all kicks off tonight with the first preseason game of the season against the Detroit Pistons at 7:00 p.m. at Chesapeake Energy Arena.

The Thunder had a gameday shootaround this morning giving Thunder Center Steven Adams a chance to take questions from the media before the team wrapped up the morning to prepare for tonight.


  • Russell Westbrook, Andre Roberson, Alex Abrines and Richard Solomon are out for tonight with injuries and to continue the healing process.
  • Abdel Nader remains questionable with knee soreness, and his status will be unknown until Billy Donovan’s media availability prior to tonight’s tip.
  • Nader did minimal practice today, but Donovan will give the final say tonight.
  • Nerlens Noel is good to go for tonight after being on watch for a foot sprain.
