Mohammed played one minute and grabbed a rebound in Tuesday's 118-94 Game 4 win over the Warriors.

EDGE Analysis

The 24-point margin of victory enabled Mohammed to see the floor for the first time this series. The Thunder typically count on Steven Adams, Enes Kanter and Serge Ibaka to handle all the minutes at center, so Mohammed probably won't be needed to play meaningful minutes in the postseason so long as those three options remain healthy.

Mohammed (coach's decision) didn't play in Monday's 98-97 Game 2 win over the Spurs.

EDGE Analysis

Though Mohammed was active for the contest, he's still viewed as the 13th man on the roster, which will prevent him from taking the court most nights. Mohammed has played in just two of the Thunder's seven postseason games and only seven of the team's 27 games in total since signing with the team in early March.

Mohammed signed a contract with the Thunder on Saturday that will keep him with the team for the remainder of the season, Shams Charania of Yahoo! Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

After striking out in their efforts to add a playoff-eligible player who was recently bought of his contract, the Thunder opted to round out their 15-man roster by bringing back Mohammed, who previously played with the team in the 2010-11 and 2011-12 campaigns. The 38-year-old most recently saw action with the Bulls last season, with whom he averaged 1.2 points and 1.7 rebounds over 5.6 minutes in 23 appearances. He'll likely assume a similar deep reserve role for the Thunder.

Mohammed played in 23 games for the Bulls this season and averaged 1.2 points and 1.7 rebounds a game.

Mohammed only averaged six minutes a game when he did play as he was buried on the end of the Bulls bench. If the Bulls bring him back or he plays anywhere else next season, don't expect him to get on the court much.

Mohammed has not played in either of the Bulls first two playoff games against the Bucks.

Mohammed might find his way onto the court with Nikola Mirotic (quad/knee) expected to miss at least Game 3, but he will only play limited minutes if he does play.

Mohammed was held scoreless (0-1 FG), but grabbed two rebounds and blocked one shot in six minutes Saturday against the Knicks.

The Bulls big men are finally getting healthy, meaning Mohammed will return to his role of playing limited minutes off of the bench if he even gets into a game.

Mohammed scored eight points (4-4 FG) to go along with two rebounds, one assist and one steal in seven minutes Sunday against the Spurs.

Not only was this a rare appearance for Mohammed, but this was the most points he has scored in a game this season. He's not playing much even with all of the Bulls injuries and his biggest value at this time is that he is a veteran leader on the team.

Mohammed scored two points (1-3 FG) to go along with four rebounds and one steal in 10 minutes Friday against the Timberwolves.

Mohammed was forced into action Friday with Paul Gasol (illness) out and Taj Gibson (ankle) leaving the game after playing only nine minutes. Gasol could be back for Sunday's game against the Clippers, so expect Mohammed to return to his very limited role when he does.

Mohammed did not play again Saturday against the Hawks.

Mohammed has only played eight games this season and his value to the Bulls at this point in his career is that of a veteran voice in the locker room.

Mohammed scored one point (0-3 FG, 1-2 FT) to go along with six rebounds, one assist and one block in 20 minutes Friday against Portland.

Mohammed played in only his second game of the season Friday as the Bulls were without Pau Gasol (calf) and then lost Taj Gibson (ankle) in this game. If both players are out again Monday, Mohammed could see increased playing time again. Even if he does though, don't expect him to provide much fantasy value.
