Oklahoma City Thunder notebook: Thabo Sefolosha to miss 4-6 weeks with calf strain

Not long after it was announced that Kendrick Perkins would miss up to six weeks with a strained groin, the Thunder were hit with more injury news. Starting shooting guard Thabo Sefolosha will be out for a similar timeframe after straining his left calf against Cleveland on Friday.

Butler was originally scheduled to join the team on Sunday but, because of weather delays, likely won’t join his new teammates until Monday’s practice.

Brooks was noncommittal on whether Butler would play in the Thunder’s game against Philadelphia on Tuesday.

“I haven’t met him yet,” Brooks said. “I’d like to get to know him before I make a commitment.”

DURANT MAKES CBB TREK

Durant spent his most recent off-day the way he spends many of his work days — filled with basketball.

His Saturday started in Norman, taking in the Red River hoops game between the Sooners and his alma mater.

“I was definitely looking forward to that,” Durant said. “Just going to see my coaches and some of the young guys I got to know over at Texas was good. I hadn’t seen them play in a while.”

Durant then shot up to Stillwater for the OSU-Kansas game, taking in the Cowboys’ win.

“Going there to see five first round picks play was nice,” Durant said. “To see OSU guys run on the floor was something I’ve never seen. A good day for me, full of basketball and that’s how I love it.”
