Kendrick Perkins C OKC 15 Days

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.

Kendrick Perkins (groin) underwent rigorous individual drills after Friday's team shootaround.

Perkins is targeting a late-March return and this latest news would seem to have him on target for a potential return against the Rockets next Friday. Perkins won't have much fantasy value upon his return other than diminishing Steven Adams' value as the rookie would likely return to the bench once Perkins is healthy.

Kendrick Perkins (groin) is hoping to return to action next Friday vs. the Rockets.

That is still nine days away, so a lot can happy. The Thunder are not really missing Perkins and he can be left on the wire in all formats. Steven Adams would likely move back into a bench role.

Kendrick Perkins will miss up to six weeks after undergoing surgery on his groin.

Perkins suffered a left groin strain against the Heat on Thursday and will essentially miss the rest of the regular season with this timetable. Perkins' averages of 3.4 points, 5.0 rebounds, and 0.5 blocks weren't helping fantasy owners much anyway, but he can be dropped without any regrets at this point. Nick Collison, Perry Jones III, and Steven Adams will each inherit a chunk Perkins' 19.7 minutes per game, with Adams providing the most upside for owners in deep leagues.

An MRI on Friday confirmed Kendrick Perkins suffered a groin strain and he will be re-evaluated in one week.

He was in serious pain after his injury on Thursday and it's possible he will need to miss more than one week. Perkins has been lost out there this year and he's not the same player he was from back in his Boston days. The Thunder will call on Steven Adams, Nick Collison and Perry Jones III to help fill the void. Adams is only worth a look in deep leagues.
