Shai Gilgeous-Alexander to be out for extended time with plantar fasciitis
Thunder G Shai Gilgeous-Alexander to be out for extended period with right foot plantar fasciitis.
Mark Daigneault: "It's not day-to-day, it's going to be a more significant amount of time...this one is an injury that we need to take a look at."
ANALYSIS: Head coach Mark Daigneault added that he believes the injury occurred over time rather than pinning it to a specific play. This is a huge blow for the Thunder as their surprising play this year only has them a few games out of the 10th spot in the West, which would qualify them for the play-in tournament.
Gilgeous-Alexander is averaging 23.7 points, 5.9 assists, and 4.7 rebounds in 33.7 minutes per game for Oklahoma City. Look for Theo Maledon to continue to get the start with Gilgeous-Alexander sidelined.
