Perkins suffered a ligament tear in his left wrist during the Western Conference finals against the Spurs and continued to play through during the NBA finals. He had surgery on the wrist in July. The nine-year veteran averaged 5.1 points and 6.6 rebounds in 26.8 minutes during the regular season and started in all 20 playoff games last year. Orton, Thabeet and Aldrich started in a combined 5 games last season.
