After suffering a mild ankle sprain late in Oklahoma City’s 106-92 win over Portland, Kendrick Perkins “should” play, Scott Brooks said Saturday.
Perkins left the game in the fourth quarter and did not return.
“It wasn’t as bad as I initially thought,” Brooks said Saturday. “He’s feeling much better today than I thought he would.”
Brooks said that Perk would be reevaluated again Sunday and he didn’t practice Saturday, so things could change. But the expectation now is that Perk plays and more than anything else, the injury wasn’t serious.
