MILWAUKEE -- Kendrick Perkins has rejoined the team and will be in the lineup for Saturday's game at Milwaukee.
Perkins missed the team's last two games to be with his family following the death of his grandfather.
Rookie center Steven Adams had started in place of Perkins but struggled in the first string. He averaged five points and two rebounds in 17.8 minutes compared to six points and six rebounds in 20.1 minutes per game coming off the bench.
But with Perkins returning, the Thunder rotation will now go back to its customary look, which should be a boost to the team's second unit.
