Thunder notebook: Jeff Green remains day-to-day

Until Thunder coach Scott Brooks hears differently from team doctors, injured forward Jeff Green remains day-to-day and his playing status will be a game-time decision tonight against Philadelphia inside Oklahoma City Arena.

Green sprained his left ankle during Saturday's practice and hasn't played or practiced since.

"Jeff is improving," Brooks said. "He took some shots (Tuesday). He's improved a lot over the last day. I don't know exactly what that means, but he's improving every day."


Sixers shooting guard Andre Iguodala missed Sunday's game at New York with a strained right Achilles tendon, ending his streak of consecutive starts at 252.

Asked if he would play against the Thunder, Iguodala told The Philadelphia Inquirer: "Not sure. I haven't practiced. I talked about that with our trainer as well, about not practicing and then getting thrown right back into the flame too fast — going from just walking around to all out sprinting in NBA action. We'll see how it goes."

Philly coach Doug Collins said: "I would think, unless he had a dramatic setback or whatever, I would think that he would probably be able to go."


Based on the Thunder's statistics to this point — last in the league in both 3-point percentage offense and defense; 28th in field-goal percentage offense; 27th in field-goal percentage defense — having a 3-3 record seems unlikely having already played upper-echelon teams in Boston, Utah, Portland and Chicago.
