Milwaukee, WI (Sporting Alert) — Kendrick Perkins could return to the starting lineup for the Oklahoma City Thunder in tonight’s game against the Milwaukee Bucks at BMO Harris Bradley Center.
Perkins missed OKC’s last two games because of family reasons, following the death of his grandfather, but the big center is expected to return to the starting team after rejoining his teammates for the road trip.
Steven Adams has started in Perkins’ place in the last two games which Oklahoma City dropped to the Los Angeles Clippers and the Golden State Warriors.
The Oklahoma City Thunder (5-3) are on a two game losing streak and will look to bounce back against a Milwaukee Bucks (2-6) side which dropped four games in a row and five of its last six games.
Milwaukee is 1-2 at home, while Oklahoma City is 2-3 on the road.
