Injury Report: Gabriel Deck to make Thunder debut, Steven Adams out for Pelicans

New Thunder signee Gabriel Deck is set to make his debut and former Oklahoma City favorite Steven Adams is set to play in the Thunder-Pelicans matchup Thursday

The Thunder begin a 4-game home stand on Thursday, taking on Zion Williamson and the Pelicans.

Oklahoma City saw their first win in the month of April on Tuesday, beating the struggling Celtics 119-115. OKC’s second-year’s, Luguentz Dort and Darius Bazley, combined to score 45 points in the victory.

Former Thunder Steven Adams left Wednesday’s game against the Nuggets due to a sprained right toe and will not play Thursday.

Argentinian signee Gabriel Deck, who was listed "not with team" on the previous injury report, will officially make his Thunder debut against the Pelicans.

“I haven’t seen him yet," Thunder guard Ty Jerome said of Deck. "I haven’t been able to meet him yet, from everything I hear he is a really good player. I’m excited to meet him.”

Oklahoma City will look to add another win to its late season campaign with most of its young core still intact.
