C - OKC - G-League
Per Rylan Stiles, The OKC Thunder have assigned Aleksej Pokusevski to the G-League. He will be with the team for at least one week.
After a nice rookie year, Pokusevski has had a very disappointing 2021-2022 season. The second-year center has averaged 4.6 points, 4.0 rebounds, and 1.1 assists on 35.8% shooting across 36 games this season. He will be with the G-League affiliate for at least one week.
According to Adrian Wojnarowski, the Thunder have placed center Aleksej Pokusevski in the league's health and safety protocols.
On Monday, the Thunder placed Aleksej Pokusevski, Jeremiah Robinson-Earl, and Aaron Wiggins all in the league's health and safety protocols. With the trio headed expected to miss multiple games comes the absence of Darius Bazley who also entered the protocols on Sunday before tip-off. Expect a combination of Isaiah Roby and Mike Muscala are in like for a larger workload with the foursome out of the lineup for likely the next few games.
Thunder Aleksej Pokusevski finished with three points (1-4 FG, 1-2 3Pt), three rebounds and two steals over 10 minutes during Wednesday's 110-109 victory over the Raptors.
The up and down season for the second year forward continued on Wednesday. Pokusevski logged just 10 minutes and actually played decently well in that span logging three boards and two steals. He has shown high upside ability but with the Thunder playing nearly a new rotation every night, it's hard to trust any as a fantasy asset.
OKC Thunder C Aleksej Pokusevski scored one point while notching six boards and two assists during a 105-103 win over the Kings.
Pokusevski continues to play bench minutes so far this season for a rebuilding Thunder team. The 2020 draft pick has yet to score in the double-digits since 10/22 and is really only providing rebounds. With a ton of options, the Thunder seem content with giving Poku his 14.5 season average in MPG. He is droppable in all leagues outside of dynasty leagues.
OKC Thunder C Aleksej Pokusevski scored seven points on 50% shooting while collecting nine boards in a blowout loss to the Warriors.
The second year player continues to be unimpressive on a rebuilding Thunder team. This season, he's struggled with playing time, the center is seeing just 13.8 points per game and not showing much reason why he should continue playing with them. On the season, Pokusevski is averaging 5.0 PPG, 4.0 RPG, and 1.2 APG on 37.9 shooting. I'm dropping him in all formats outside of dynasty until further notice.
