Thunder Injury Update: Anthony Morrow injures left knee

By on 10/24/2014 11:23:00 PM

The Oklahoma City Thunder point guard Anthony Morrow is set to miss 4-6 weeks after he tweaked his left knee during practice.

Morrow suffered a sprain on his left medial collateral ligament and the Thunders announced today that his injury will be re-assessed in about a week's time.

Morrow had a good preseason run, scoring in double figures in all six games and racked up thirteen 3-pointers. With Kevin Durant out, the 29-year-old would have seen a huge boost in the number of minutes. Morrow signed for the Thunder this July in a three-year, $10 million contract. Last season, he averaged 8.4 points-per-game and 1.8 rebounds-per-game for the New Orleans Pelicans.

The Thunder have had a difficult October with most of their important players picking up injuries. They expect to have Reggie Jackson, Jeremy Lamb, Nick Collison and Kendrick Perkins available for the opener against the Portland Trail Blazers next week. Rookie forward Mitch McGary and veteran Kevin Durant will not be available before late November though.

It hasn't been a great preseason on the court as well for Scott Brooks' men with their win-loss record at 2-4. Last season, the Thunder lost to the San Antonio Spurs 4-2 in the Western Conference Finals, after finishing first in their division and second in their conference.
