Status for Olympics uncertain
Gilgeous-Alexander's foot issue first cropped up shortly after the All-Star break, and though the Thunder initially anticipated that he would be ready to return before the end of the regular season, he ultimately sat out the final 29 games with the injury. He's apparently still not 100 percent nearly two months after being diagnosed with the injury, but it's at least a positive sign that he hasn't plateaued in the recovery process. Even if Gilgeous-Alexander doesn't feel comfortable enough with his health to take part in international competition this summer, he should be back to full strength for the start of training camp in the fall.

Declares self healthy
Muscala, an impending free agent, noted that he would have interest in re-signing with the Thunder this summer, which would seem to suggest he was on board with the organization's decision to hold him out of action following the All-Star break. The 29-year-old looks like he won't be affected by the ankle sprain heading into the offseason, but he'll presumably still have to settle for a one- or two-year deal on the open market. He ended up seeing action in 35 games on the season, averaging a career-high 9.7 points to go with 3.8 rebounds and 1.9 triples in 18.4 minutes per contest.

Available for finale
Hall missed the Thunder's previous game due to COVID-19 protocols but is good to go for the finale. Over his past five appearances, he's averaged 4.8 points, 4.2 rebounds and 1.6 assists in 22.6 minutes.
