Brewer generated three points (1-2 FG, 1-2 3Pt), one steal and one block across 22 minutes during Oklahoma City's 113-96 loss to the Jazz in Game 4 of their Western Conference first-round playoff series.

EDGE Analysis

Brewer had served as a solid complementary source of offense over the previous two games in particular, but his usage saw a notable downturn Monday. The veteran wing's two shot attempts were his fewest of the series, leading to his lowest scoring total of the four games, as well. While Brewer is likely to be more aggressive in Wednesday's Game 5, his involvement is highly likely to pale in comparison to the rest of his first-unit teammates.

Brewer finished with nine points (3-6 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block across 28 minutes during Oklahoma City's 115-102 loss to the Jazz in Game 3 of their Western Conference first-round playoff series.

EDGE Analysis

Brewer has now shot at least 50.0 percent in each of the first three games of the series. The veteran wing has his hands full on the defensive end while often facing off with star rookie Donovan Mitchell, but he's provided solid offensive contributions while serving as a supplementary scoring option behind the Thunder's Big Three.

Brewer (knee) is not listed on the injury report for Wednesday's Game 2 against the Jazz, Erik Horne of The Oklahoman reports.

EDGE Analysis

It appeared as if Brewer may enter Wednesday as questionable, as he only took "some" contact during Tuesday's practice. However, that seems to have been a precautionary measure, as he isn't listed on the team injury report. As a result, he should be expected to be available and in the starting five.

Brewer (knee) was able to go through "some" contact at Tuesday's practice, Erik Horne of The Oklahoman reports.

EDGE Analysis

Brewer's status for Game 1 against Utah was relatively up-in-the-air after suffering a knee sprain during the team's regular-season finale, though he ultimately played 34 minutes, contributing seven points, three boards, two steals, one assist and a block. He's apparently feeling some residual pain, however, limiting him in Tuesday's practice. As a result, he should be considered questionable for Wednesday's Game 2.

Brewer (knee) has been cleared to play in Sunday's playoff opener against the Jazz and will start at shooting guard, Brett Dawson of The Oklahoman reports.

EDGE Analysis

Ever since spraining his knee in the regular-season finale, Brewer has indicated he planned on being ready for Game 1, which has now been confirmed. He'll take on his usual spot in the starting five and the Thunder have also reported that Brewer won't have any restrictions. Alex Abrines (concussion), who was originally ruled out, has been upgraded to available, so the Thunder should have a healthy wing rotation.

Brewer (knee) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's playoff opener against the Jazz, Andy Larsen of KSL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Brewer, who sprained his knee in Wednesday's regular-season finale, originally indicated that he expected to play in Sunday's opener, so despite being questionable, there's still plenty of optimism that he'll ultimately be able to give it a go. That said, he'll likely be reevaluated following the team's shootaround Sunday morning, so look for another update on Brewer after that session. The Thunder are already short on wing depth with Alex Abrines (concussion) out, so look for Brewer to do everything he can to take the court

Brewer (knee) participated in some contact portions of Saturday's practice, Erik Horne of The Oklahoman reports.

EDGE Analysis

Brewer (knee) did not practice Friday, though the assumption remains that he'll be available for Game 1 against Utah on Sunday, Royce Young of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Brewer has noted that he plans on taking the floor for Game 1, so the fact that he didn't practice seems to be a precautionary measure. More information should be available Saturday as he continues to receive treatment.

Brewer will have his sprained knee treated over the next few days and plans to play in the Thunder's playoff opener against the Jazz on Sunday, Shams Charania of Yahoo! Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

Brewer suffered the injury during Wednesday's regular-season finale and while there were concerns it was fairly serious, it appears he's dodge a bullet and should be available for the start of the playoffs. For now, we'll call Brewer probable, with additional word on his progress likely coming over the coming few days. Brewer has been a key addition on the wing after Andre Roberson (knee) was lost for the season, as he's averaged 10.1 points, 3.4 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 2.1 steals in 18 games (16 starts) since joining the Thunder.

Brewer sprained his right knee during Wednesday's regular-season finale against the Grizzlies, Berry Tramel of The Oklahoman reports.

EDGE Analysis

Brewer suffered the injury midway through the fourth quarter of Wednesday's contest, appearing to land awkwardly after being fouled by Grizzlies' guard Mario Chalmers on a three-point attempt. He was eventually helped to the locker room and was unable to shoot his free throws, which eliminated Brewer from returning to the game. The Thunder have yet to provide any sort of update on the severity of Brewer's knee sprain, but his availability for the start of the playoffs is certainly in danger at this point Consider Brewer questionable for Sunday's playoff opener against the Jazz until more information is provided.
