Felton (wrist) will play in Thursday's regular-season opener against the Knicks, Royce Young of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Both Felton and Patrick Patterson (knee) have been given the green light to take the court, meaning the Thunder will open the season at full strength. Felton should jump right into the regular backcourt rotation, though the fact that he's backing up Russell Westbrook will likely hurt his chances of picking up significant minutes most nights.

Felton (wrist) went through morning shootaround, but remains questionable for Thursday's regular-season opener against the Knicks, Erik Horne of the Oklahoman reports.

EDGE Analysis

Felton has been a full participant in practice the last few days as well, so at this point, it seems likely he'll take the court in Thursday's opener. Look for another update sometime closer to tip-off, but if cleared, Felton should operate as Russell Westbrook's backup at point guard.

Felton (wrist) went through full contact during Wednesday's practice, but remains questionable for Thursday's regular-season opener against the Knicks, Brett Dawson of The Oklahoman reports.

EDGE Analysis

Both Felton and Patrick Patterson (knee) have put together back-to-back full practices, so they appear to be inching towards being available for Thursday's contest. Felton should have his status updated again following the team's morning shootaround, which should give us a better indication if he'll ultimately be cleared.

Felton (wrist) took part in the contact portions of Tuesday's practice, Erik Horne of The Oklahoman reports.

EDGE Analysis

Felton has been nursing a left wrist sprain since Oct. 8. Taking part in contact during Tuesday's practice is an important step in his recovery and availability for the team's season opener Thursday against the Knicks. That said, he should still be considered questionable until further notice.

Felton (wrist) was a non-contact participant in Thursday's practice, Erik Horne of The Oklahoman reports.

EDGE Analysis

Felton sprained his wrist over the weekend and was forced to miss the team's final preseason contest as a result. The Thunder will likely continue to proceed cautiously with the point guard seeing as the start of the regular season is just a week away, but he's trending in the right direction. Felton is expected to serve as Russell Westbrook's backup during the regular season, though he likely won't see enough minutes to keep him relevant in most fantasy leagues.

Felton (wrist) will not play in Tuesday's preseason game against the Nuggets, Brett Dawson of The Oklahoman reports.

EDGE Analysis

Felton left Sunday night's game with a sprained wrist and was unable to to return after logging 11 minutes. The Thunder will likely remain cautious with the point guard with the regular season just around the corner, so Semaj Christon should see some additional minutes at point guard in the team's final preseason contest.

Felton suffered a sprained left wrist during Sunday's preseason matchup against Melbourne United and will not return, Brett Dawson of The Oklahoman reports.

EDGE Analysis

Felton played 11 minutes before suffering the injury, totaling six points (3-4 FG), three rebounds, one assist, two steals, one block and one turnover. The severity of the sprain is unclear, but he'll likely have additional tests on the wrist following the game, which should give us a better indication of how much time Felton could miss. Tentatively consider him questionable for Tuesday's game against the Nuggets.

Felton will start the Thunder's preseason opener Tuesday against Houston, Brett Dawson of The Oklahoman reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Thunder will hold Russell Westbrook out as a precaution, so the veteran will log a start in his place. Felton is expected to see regular minutes as Westbrook's backup during the regular season, but he's unlikely to see enough minutes to achieve fantasy relevancy in most formats.

Felton and the Thunder have agreed to terms on a one-year contract, Chris Haynes of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

The terms of the deal have not been released, but Felton will likely sign on for close to the veteran's minimum. The 33-year-old nearly fell out of the league after a tumultuous couple of seasons in New York and Dallas, but he's bounced back over the last two years and was a key bench player for the Clippers last season, averaging 6.7 points and 2.4 assists in 21.3 minutes per game. Felton will likely hold a similar role for the Thunder, who are currently in need of depth at point guard behind Russell Westbrook.

Felton finished with 11 points (5-10 FG, 1-3 3Pt), four rebounds, and two assists across 26 minutes during Thursday's 114-98 victory over the Grizzlies.

EDGE Analysis

Felton's minutes have been choppy since the return of Chris Paul, but finished Thursday's game with the most time on the floor since Paul's return, dropping 11 points in the process. While his impact on the court has been limited in the eight games that Paul has been back -- averaging just 5.0 points on 47.1 percent shooting, 2.1 rebounds, 1.5 assists, and 0.9 steals across 16.9 minutes per game -- it's games like Thursday's outing against the defensive-minded Grizzlies that show he's still a very capable player. That being said, the fantasy value that he accumulated while Paul was absent has all but vanished, and he now remains valuable in only the deepest of fantasy formats.
