Thunder guard Thabo Sefolosha, who had his streak of 127 consecutive starts snapped Friday night because of a sprained left knee, remains questionable for today's noon start against Miami inside Oklahoma City Arena.

“We'll see how he feels (Sunday),” Thunder coach Scott Brooks said after Sefolosha sat out of Saturday's light practice session.

If Sefolosha is unable to play, James Harden will get his fourth start of the season.

As for the Heat, guard Dwyane Wade (right wrist) and forward Chris Bosh (left ankle) are listed as day-to-day and considered doubtful for today's game. Both made the team trip to Oklahoma City on Saturday.

Former Heat player Daequan Cook is coming off his most significant performance with the Thunder with nine points (3 for 7 from 3-point range), five rebounds, one steal and a key assist in the second overtime while playing 23 minutes against Washington on Friday night.

Asked if he considered starting Cook against his former team if Sefolosha is out, Brooks said, “Daequan will definitely play, but James will start in place of Thabo. I thought Daequan played good minutes (Friday) night. He made some shots for us and defended pretty good when we needed some defense at the end of the game. I thought he did a good job.”
