According to Chris Broussard of ESPN.com, the Heat could make a run at acquiring Kendrick Perkins.

Needless to say, things will have to go horribly wrong for the Heat to make a move on Perkins. He has one year left on his deal and his decline as a big man has been a precipitous one. The Thunder added Michigan center Mitch McGary in the draft to make Big Perk even more expendable.

Oklahoma City Thunder general manager Sam Presti said on Thursday that the team has not discussed whether to use the amnesty clause on Kendrick Perkins.

"It's not something that's been considered to this point," he said. Perk's production has dipped every season he has been in Oklahoma City, and the development of Steven Adams may soon render him expendable. He is set to make $9.4M next season, the fourth highest salary on the team. With OKC already tight against the salary cap, they may change their tune on the big man when the free agency period comes around. Perkins should not be on fantasy radars heading in to next season.

Kendrick Perkins said Oklahoma City was outsmarted by San Antonio.

"The Spurs, they weren't more athletic than us, they weren't more talented than us, they just outsmarted us," Perkins said. Coach Scott Brooks probably gave Perkins more minutes than he deserved, which may have been part of the problem. Brooks also tightened his rotation in Saturday's loss and he'll get a popular target for falling short in the playoffs again.

When Scott Brooks was asked whether it was time to "turn the page" on Kendrick Perkins the coach was reluctant to give a definitive answer.

"That remains to be seen," said Brooks. "There's a lot of work to be done this summer." Perkins finished the 2013-14 season with averages of 3.4 points, 4.9 rebounds, and 0.5 blocks while averaging 20 minutes per game. Those are not the numbers of a serviceable center in the NBA, and it's a bit curious as to what exactly "remains to be seen." While Brooks may be uncertain with what he's doing with his lineups, fantasy owners can be certain that Perkins is not a viable asset.

Kendrick Perkins (groin) is expected to play in both of Oklahoma City's back-to-back games on Tuesday and Wednesday.

The Thunder were initially planning to rest him one game during their remaining back-to-back sets, but it appears he's progressed nicely since returning. Even though he won't get a DNP, his poor production and minimal playing time ensure that he will not help fantasy owners.

Kendrick Perkins (groin) returned to action on Sunday and played 13 minutes, finishing with four points and three rebounds.

OKC is very cautiously plugging him back into the rotation and he will not play in back-to-back games during the regular season. He offers no fantasy value of his own, and his presence ensures that rookie Steven Adams (DNP-CD) will also be a non-factor.

Kendrick Perkins will sit out Friday's game against the Rockets for rest purposes.

Perkins is getting the same treatment as Russell Westbrook, which means he won't play on back-to-backs. Steven Adams will likely draw the start against either Dwight Howard (ankle) or Omer Asik.

Kendrick Perkins (groin) did not score in his return on Thursday, adding one board and one assist in 12 minutes.

Luckily for the Thunder, he didn't take any shots tonight and only played 12 minutes. They were running all over the Spurs tonight with a whopping 30 points in fast break, which is not exactly Perk's forte. He can be left alone in all leagues.

Kendrick Perkins will return from his groin injury on Thursday, but he'll be limited to 10 minutes of action.

OKC will ease him back into the rotation with five minutes in each half, and neither Perkins nor rookie center Steven Adams are remotely trustworthy for fantasy owners.

Kendrick Perkins (groin) practiced on Wednesday and could return for Thursday's game vs. the Spurs.

Thunder rookie Steven Adams hasn't done much in 19 starts with Perkins out, averaging 3.3 points, 4.3 rebounds and 0.6 blocks in 17 minutes per game. OKC's center position is a desert for fantasy value.
