Thunder s Kyle Singler: Has scored 32 points over last two games

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Singler produced 15 points (5-8 FG, 5-6 3Pt), six rebounds and one assist across 29 minutes in Thursday’s 110-94 preseason loss to the Grizzlies.

Singler has looked stellar while starting the last two games in place of an injured Andre Roberson (knee), producing 32 total points on 10-of-17 shooting from the field and 9-of-12 shooting from beyond the arc. His career 37 percent mark from long distance suggests that Singler’s scoring will regress in swift fashion, but if nothing else, his two quality games in a row have put him in the driver’s seat to serve as the top backup to Roberson when the regular season opens.

Thunder s Kyle Singler: Nets 17 points while starting in loss

Singler tallied 17 points (5-9 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 3-3 FT), three rebounds, one assist and one steal across 31 minutes in Tuesday’s 114-109 preseason loss to the Mavericks.

Coach Billy Donovan handed Singler the start at small forward with Andre Roberson sitting out Tuesday’s matchup with a sore knee, and the veteran responded with perhaps his best performance in a Thunder uniform. That speaks to just how miserable Singler has been in his one-plus seasons with the Oklahoma City, as he was largely excluded from the rotation in the postseason last spring after averaging 3.4 points on 38.9 percent shooting from the floor and 30.9 percent shooting from distance during the 2015-16 campaign. While Victor Oladipo will aim to cover most of the offensive void left by Kevin Durant’s departure this offseason, the Thunder will turn to a ragtag collection of players to man all the minutes at small forward. The defensive-minded Roberson leads the way, leaving Singler to duke it out with Anthony Morrow and Alex Abrines for whatever playing time is left over. Both Morrow and Abrines profile as superior shooting options, so Singler may need to exhibit some strengths in other areas if he hopes to hold down a rotation spot.

Thunder s Kyle Singler: Active for Game 6, but doesn t play

Singler didn’t play in Thursday’s series-clinching 113-99 Game 6 win over the Spurs in a coach’s decision.

Singler was inactive for Tuesday’s Game 5 due to an illness, but it appears he’s since returned to full health and simply didn’t get off the bench Thursday because he isn’t a member of coach Billy Donovan’s rotation. The forward has appeared in just three of the Thunder ‘s 11 postseason contests.

Thunder s Kyle Singler: Out with illness Tuesday

Kyle Singler will not play in Tuesday’s Game 5 against the Spurs because of an illness, Anthony Slater of the Oklahoman reports.

Singler saw 12 minutes of action during Game 1 against the Spurs, but hasn’t touched the court since, so his absence shouldn’t affect coach Billy Donovan’s regular rotation. Singler is dealing with the stomach flu and will sit out Tuesday, however, it isn’t likely to keep him sidelined for an extended period of time. He’ll have two days off before Game 6 on Thursday.

Thunder s Kyle Singler: Out of rotation last three games of series

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kyle Singler (coach’s decision) didn’t play in Monday’s Game 5 win over the Mavericks.

Coach Billy Donovan tightened his rotation over the last three games of the series, as Singler failed to leave the pine for any of those contests. That figures to remain the case heading into the Oklahoma City Thunder ‘s second-round matchup with the Spurs, when Donovan will likely be forced to lean on his starters even more heavily than he did against the Mavericks.
