Oklahoma City center Kendrick Perkins went through a full practice Thursday for the first time since joining the team.

Perkins suffered a mild strain of the MCL in his left knee on Feb. 22, two days before coming to Oklahoma City in a four-player trade with Boston. He has not played since joining the Thunder, but moved a step closer to doing so Thursday.

"It went OK. I'd probably give myself a 6 on a scale of 1 to 10.," said Perkins, who added that he felt no discomfort and was able to move freely. "I was a little rusty in some spots but it went real well."
