Perkins played 23 minutes off the bench Tuesday, but was held scoreless on three shot attempts. He did manage three rebounds in the contest, however.

Perkins has played at least 20 minutes in four of his last five games, but has scored a combined 21 points in that span. He usually pulls down respectable rebounds for the amount of time he gets, but aside from that, he doesn't add enough in other categories to be a viable player on your team.

Perkins (knee) returned to action Sunday after a one-game absence. He put up four points and five rebounds in 14 minutes off the bench.

Perkins missed Friday's win over the Lakers with a left knee contusion. Through 27 games this season, he is averaging 4.0 points, 5.9 rebounds and 0.8 blocks in 20 minutes per game. Perkins is a virtual non-entity in standard leagues. Even if he were to ever overtake the starting center job again, he'd be unlikely to get enough minutes to be relevant in anything but the deepest of leagues.

Perkins (knee) is considered a game-time call for Sunday's game against the Pelicans, Anthony Slater of The Oklahoman reports.

After missing Friday's game with a knee bruise, Perkins will test out the injury during pregame before a final call on his status is made. If he's held out again, expect to see more of Nick Collison, who played 22 minutes Friday.

Perkins missed Friday's game against the Lakers with a left knee contusion and is considered day-to-day moving forward, The Oklahoman reports.

This injury flew under the radar with the news of Kevin Durant (ankle) missing Friday's game as well, although Perkins' injury is not believed to be serious and he has a serious chance to return against the Pelicans on Sunday. If he's unable to play, Steven Adams will likely absorb the minutes that Perkins is leaving on the court.

Perkins was held scoreless (0-3 FG, 0-2 FT) in 18 minutes of action against the New Jersey Nets on Monday. He added four rebounds and turned the ball over twice.

Perkins is slow, which leaves the Thunder vulnerable to transition buckets. He's simply a liability when on the floor both defensively and offensively. Steven Adams is the starter at C and a much better fantasy option. If you picked Perkins up after his 17-point anomaly on Saturday, go ahead and drop him now.

Perkins played his first minutes of the season for the Thunder on Thursday against the Clippers, failing to make a single field goal.

Although he's healthy, Steven Adams is the presumed starter at center. Perkins came off the bench, playing 19 minutes and scoring only three points (0-2 FG, 3-4 FT), though he did pull down six rebounds. Perkins will likely continue to come off the bench.

Perkins (quad) will come off the bench to begin the season, Anthony Slater of The Oklahoman reports.

Coach Scott Brooks announced Tuesday that Steven Adams has won the starting job, which will push Perkins to the bench for the first time in four seasons. Perkins has started every game he's played in a Thunder uniform, but his effectiveness - particularly on offense - has tailed off over the past two years. The 29-year-old isn't much of a fantasy commodity, and his numbers - 3.4 points, 4.9 rebounds last season - probably won't be significantly impacted this season.

Perkins (quad) practiced Thursday and is expected to be ready for the regular season opener, Anthony Slater of The Oklahoman reports.

Perkins missed all of the preseason with a hamstring injury, but he returned to practice Thursday and will have about a week to get himself conditioned for the regular season. While Perkins projects to be in the starting lineup again this season, second-year forward/center Steven Adams is sure to see plenty of minutes.
