C - OKC - OUT
Oklahoma City Thunder center Al Horford (rest) has been ruled out Friday against the Hawks.
With Horford not playing against the Hawks on Friday due to rest, the Thunder have traditionally turned to Isaiah Roby to start at center.
Al Horford collected 16 points (7-16 FG, 2-6 3Pt), seven rebounds, and seven assists across 30 minutes in Wednesday’s 102-97 victory over San Antonio.
Horford provided another well-rounded stat line in Wednesday’s win, supplying a healthy dose of rebounds and assists to go along with his 16 points. Big Al and the Thunder will look to secure another win on Friday against the Hawks.
Oklahoma City Thunder C Al Horford (rest) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Heat.
The Thunder are on the second leg of a back-to-back tonight in which Horford will rest for. In the most recent game he rested, Isaiah Roby drew the start at center. In nine starts this season, Roby has averaged 12.1 points and 6.8 rebounds in 26.9 minutes per game. Roby makes for an incredible play in DFS formats on Monday.
Thunder F/C Al Horford (rest) will not play on the second night of a back-to-back Wednesday vs. the Grizzlies.
Par for the course as Horford has been resting at least one of the games on back-to-backs this season. Isaiah Roby becomes a nice DFS value play as he is the most likely candidate to enter the starting lineup.
Al Horford collected 20 points (8-16 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT), nine assists and seven rebounds in Sunday's 114-109 win over the Bucks.
Horford stuffed the stat sheet again on Sunday in the absence of Shai Gilgeous-Alexander (knee), leading the Thunder to possibly their biggest win of the season. For the duration Gilgeous-Alexander remains on the sidelines, Horford will continue to carry the Thunder offensively.
