Thunder notebook: Jeff Green questionable, Nenad Krstic probable Sunday

Forward Jeff Green, who reinjured his left ankle Friday at Indiana, did not practice Saturday and is questionable for tonight's game at Houston. Green has missed seven games because of the ankle sprain this season and spent Saturday's practice rehabbing the injury.

“He was feeling pretty good (Saturday),” said Thunder coach Scott Brooks. “It's day-to-day. We'll see how he feels (Sunday) and then make the decision.”

Meanwhile, center Nenad Krstic said he hopes to be able to play after missing Friday's game because of back spasms. Krstic didn't partake in the team's full-contact portion of practice Saturday, but he did do some shooting drills.

If Krstic and Green can't play, their likely replacements would be Serge Ibaka and Nick Collison, respectively.


A day after watching Russell Westbrook post a career-high 43 points against Indiana, Brooks praised his starting point guard not for his scoring acumen but for the smart way in which his record night came about.

“He's played well for us, and he's going to continue to play well and get better,” Brooks said. “I thought he had a very smart game going. Kevin (Durant) and our guys were not making shots early and we felt that he had a good matchup. I like the fact that he wasn't settling for jump shots. He took the game inside and got to the basket and made plays at the basket. And that opened up his midrange game.”
