Another night, another landmark for the elder Thunder.
Derek Fisher will play in Game 3 tonight against the Los Angeles Clippers after suffering a shoulder injury in Game 2 Wednesday, as reported by Darnell Mayberry.
Fisher went down in the second half with what is being called a shoulder contusion. His status was in doubt coming into tonight’s game, but the 39-year-old is expected to suit up for his NBA-record 250th playoff game tonight in Los Angeles.
