Thunder notebook: Reggie Jackson doesn't practice, status unknown for Sunday against the Jazz

Scott Brooks called Reggie Jackson a game-time decision for Sunday’s 2 p.m. tip against the Utah Jazz. Jackson suffered a mid-back sprain at practice on Thursday and didn’t play in the Thunder’s win over the Kings on Friday.

After the game, Durant was asked about his videobombing antics.

“Just enjoying the win, having a little fun,” Durant said. “Can't always be too tensed up, it's a long season. Just staying loose.”

But, Durant said, he's far from the best videobomber on the team. That award goes to Thabeet.

“Yeah, he's the king,” Durant said. “He's the selfie king and he's the videobomb king. So I followed his lead tonight.”

SHOES OR NO SHOES?

At Friday’s shootaround, Durant was asked about opposing players wearing his shoes.

As he has in the past, Durant said he is flattered by the gesture.

“When I see it on TV, it’s pretty cool,” he admitted. “I was watching the Utah game the other day and Gordon Hayward had on my shoes. Thought that was pretty cool. But when we are playing, I don’t really recognize it as much.”

However, Durant said he wouldn’t allow his players to wear an opponent’s brand of shoes if he was a coach, echoing the sentiment of Denver coach Brian Shaw earlier this season and even singling out one of his teammates.

“I get on Reggie almost every day, he wears LeBron’s,” Durant said. “Fish (Derek Fisher) wore some Kobe’s when he first got here, but I gave him a pass because him and Kobe are like BFFs. I can feel where Brian Shaw coming from.”
