Thunder Injury Update: Reggie Jackson, Jeremy Lamb inactive for tonight's game

By on 11/01/2014 04:00:00 PM

The Oklahoma City Thunder will be without Reggie Jackson and Jeremy Lamb for the third straight game, as the two guards have been declared out for Oklahoma City's contest Saturday against the Nuggets. Lamb is recovering from a back injury suffered this past Monday during practice, while Jackson has been nursing a right ankle injury that occurred during the same practice.

After major injuries to Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant, the Thunder are left with a starting lineup that only sees Serge Ibaka as a returning starter. Jackson and Lamb will surely attempt to replace the voids left by the stars, however Oklahoma City will have to wait until later this week to see how they do. As reported by Thunder writer Royce Young, this leaves the team with just eight active players.
Perry Jones scored 32 points in Oklahoma City's recent three point loss to the Los Angeles Clippers in Kevin Durant's starting small forward spot, and the Thunder will look to Jackson to produce similar results in Westbrook's absence. For now Sebastian Telfair will run the show for the Thunder, however he will most likely return to the bench upon Jackson's recovery. Andre Roberson has started both of Oklahoma City's games at the shooting guard position because of newly-acquired Anthony Morrow's MCL sprain, however when Lamb returns both he and Roberson will likely see significant minutes.
