Two More Thunder Players Ruled Out For Rest of Season

The Oklahoma City Thunder continue to shut things down for the season, ruling out two more players for the balance of the season. 

Head coach Mark Daigneault told Thunder beat writer Joe Mussatto that veteran center Derrick Favors is officially done due to a lower back injury. He hasn't played since February 24th. The 12-year vet has a $10M option for next season. 

Daigneault also said that forward Kenrich Williams is very doubtful to return to the lineup. He's been out with a knee sprain since Feb. 14th. Williams averaged 7.4 points and 4.5 rebounds and played his usual staunch defense on the perimeter. 

The Thunder have the 4th worst record in the NBA this season, at 22-54, and have been shutting down their regulars for weeks now as they chase as strong a draft position (aka: as poor a finish) as possible. 

Just earlier this week, star guard Shai Gilgeous-Alexander was ruled out, the day after rookie sensation Josh Giddey called it a season. Earlier in March, three other players had season-ending surgery
