The Oklahoma City Thunder announced on Saturday that Shai Gilgeous-Alexander will be re-evaluated after the All-Star Break as he deals with a right ankle sprain he suffered in Friday’s loss to the Indiana Pacers.
The All-Star Game is on Feb. 20, which means Gilgeous-Alexander will miss at least the next 10 games for the Thunder. The 14-34 Thunder are 0-5 and have averaged just 93.4 points in games without Gilgeous-Alexander this season.
This news is not all that surprising considering just how hobbled Gilgeous-Alexander was as he checked out of the game and hurried into the tunnel to get his ankle checked out. The Suave Report’s Addam Francisco reported after the game that Gilgeous-Alexander was in a boot and crutches.
SGA is leaving the arena in a boot and crutches.

It’ll be interesting to see who takes advantage of the touches Gilgeous-Alexader usually gets as the number one option on the offense. My guess is that Josh Giddey and Lu Dort will have a heavier load and responsibilities.
