Thunder's Perkins leaves Game 4 with right hip strain


Posted May 5 2012 8:30PM

DALLAS (AP) -- Oklahoma City's Kendrick Perkins is out of Game 4 of the playoff series against Dallas because of a right hip strain.

Perkins walked gingerly back to the bench after getting called for his second foul with 4:09 left in the first quarter Saturday night. The Thunder were on defense at the time when the 6-foot-10 center made contact with another player, though it wasn't exactly clear if that is when he got hurt.

The Thunder said Perkins wouldn't return to the game.

Perkins had two rebounds, two assists and missed his only shot in his 8 minutes.
