After missing 13 games with a bruised knee, Perry Jones of the Oklahoma City Thunder has finally been cleared to play and will be in the lineup come tonight’s game against the pathetic Philadelphia 76ers. News of Jones’ return was tweeted by Darnell Mayberry of The Oklahoman.
For the first time this season the Thunder has its entire 15-man roster healthy. Perry Jones practiced today and is now available for games.

Now, there’s no question that the Thunder are going to have a tough road ahead of them, but with both Westbrook and Durant healthy and back on the court, I have no doubt that the OKC will make it to the playoffs. The Thunder has two of the best players in the world. There’s no way they let this team miss out on a chance to compete for a title – no way.
Tonight’s game begins at 7:00 PM EST and will be played at the Wells Fargo Arena. To be honest, it wouldn’t surprise me if the fans turned their back on the 76ers, despite their recent victory, and started cheering for the Thunder – I know I would.
