Grading the Thunder's individual performers through the halfway point in the season.
Stats: 1.0 ppg, 1.9 rpg, 0.14 bpg, 7.9 mpg.
Bottom line: Look at Aldrich like a layaway purchase. He's going to take a while. But he'll be worth the wait.
Stats: 4.6 ppg, 4.4 rpg, 0.44 bpg, 0.4 apg, 19.7 mpg.
Bottom line: It's scary to think where the Thunder would be without Collison's energy, hustle, hard screens and low-post defense.
Stats: 2.1 ppg, 0.7 rpg, 0.4 apg, 9.6 mpg.
Bottom line: After canning 34 percent of his 3-pointers in the preseason, Cook shot just 18.8 percent from deep in his first seven games. It cost him his job.
Stats: 28.4 ppg, 6.2 rpg, 2.9 apg, 1.08 spg, 3.27 tpg, 39.3 mpg.
Bottom line: His assist-to-turnover ratio still isn't good. But after a slow start shooting the ball, Durant has regained his efficiency offensively while focusing more on the defensive end.
Stats: 15.1 ppg, 5.5 rpg, 2.1 apg, 1.0 spg, 37.4 mpg.
Bottom line: Green has been extremely erratic. He's had some huge plays, but his post defense and poor shooting (41.8 percent from the field and 27.8 percent from 3) have hampered the team.
Stats: 10.6 ppg, 3.2 rpg, 1.9 apg, 1.1 spg, 25.6 mpg.
Bottom line: Harden had his bout with a brutal start before bouncing back nicely. His defense has improved but his aggressiveness as a playmaker and finisher at the rim have teetered off.
Stats: 9.8 ppg, 6.7 rpg, 2.12 bpg, 26.3 mpg.
Bottom line: An improved offensive game is what has stood out most. Ibaka drains jumpers with consistency and is developing some go-to moves in the post.
Stats: 2.1 ppg, 0.9 rpg, 0.4 apg, 7.5 mpg.
Bottom line: The next thing he does wrong will be the first thing. Ivey's been perfect in his emergency/leadership role thus far.
Stats: 7.8 ppg, 4.9 rpg, 0.4 bpg, 0.4 apg, 22.5 mpg.
Bottom line: Krstic's scoring is down because he has lost a few minutes and some shot attempts. But defensively, Krstic has been steady.
Stats: 4.5 ppg, 1.5 rpg, 2.2 apg, 14.3 mpg.
Bottom line: Maynor sharpened his 3-point stroke to complement his set-up skills. But we still haven't seen him take a big jump because of the guy he's forced to play behind.
Stats: 1.3 ppg, 1.6 rpg, 0.25 bpg, 4.7 mpg.
Bottom line: With the exception of a game here and there, most of Mullens' playing time this season has been in garbage time.
Stats: 1.0 ppg, 0.8 rpg, 0.3 apg, 5.8 mpg.
Bottom line: Peterson has never been given a chance. His four games played are the fewest of any Thunder player. But with the Thunder shooting 32.4 percent from 3, you can't help but to think it couldn't hurt to throw Peterson a sniff.
Stats: 5.5 ppg, 5.2 rpg, 1.6 apg, 1.49 spg, 28.9 mpg.
Bottom line: Sefolosha's rebounding has improved. But his perimeter defense hasn't been as stout as last season. And while he's attack the basket better than he ever has, which has led to a career-high 46 percent from the field, Sefolosha's perimeter shot remains suspect.
Stats: 22.4 ppg, 5.1 rpg, 8.4 apg, 1.9 spg, 3.71 tpg, 36.1 mpg.
Bottom line: Without question, Westbrook has been the team's best player to this point. He's become more efficient and has boosted his scoring, assists, rebounds and steals, all while playing with more control and consistency.
Stats: 2.9 ppg, 2.3 rpg, 0.4 apg, 9.9 mpg.
Bottom line: With early injuries, White finally got a chance on the court. And he delivered a pleasant surprise when he showed that his defense is catching up to his offense. Steady minutes will be hard to come by, however, in the second half.
