SGA to the locker room. Hate that. Had to limp off the court. – 9:22 PM

Sabonis fouls SGA and SGA comes up limping badly. I believe it’s his right ankle. He’s headed straight to the locker room with 10:09 left in the 3Q. #Pacers9:21 PM

Well, OKC likes to run and that’s exactly what they’re doing. Josh Giddy just dropped it off to SGA for a dunk. Thunder now lead the #Pacers 16-15. – 8:24 PM

Josh Giddey with a beauty of a behind the back pass on a fast break to SGA for a dunk.

Rylan Stiles @Rylan_Stiles
Behind the back pass by Josh Giddey for a Shai Gilgeous-Alexander slam they smile and laugh their way into the huddle PM

Joe Mussatto @joe_mussatto
Giddey behind-the-back pass in transition to SGA for the slam. That was nice. – 8:23 PM

Jon Hamm @JonMHamm
SGA with a drive and kick to Tre Mann.
Fortunately the pass was off the mark and Mann had to chase it down, because it allowed him to set up for that jab stepback 3. – 8:21 PM

Andy Larsen @andyblarsen
Thing I’m surprised by: How did Dejounte Murray, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, and Anthony Edwards all get more player votes for All-Star starter than Donovan Mitchell? Mitchell only got one more vote than Desmond Bane! AM

More on this storyline

Brandon Rahbar: Shai Gilgeous-Alexander went down hard, grabbed at his leg right above his ankle, painfully shot 2 free throws and darted/limped to the locker room. Hope all is well with SGA. -via Twitter @BrandonRahbar / January 28, 2022

Rylan Stiles: #Thunder list Shai Gilgeous-Alexander as questionable (right ankle soreness). Darius Bazley, Jeremiah Robinson-Earl, Josh Giddey, Tre Mann, Aleksej Pokusevski remain out in health and safety protocols. Vit Krejci is out. Kenrich Williams is questionable (ankle sprain) vs Knicks. -via Twitter @Rylan_Stiles / December 30, 2021

Joe Mussatto: Shai Gilgeous-Alexander didn’t start feeling the symptoms of a concussion until today after he woke up from a nap, per Mark Daigneault. Daigneault said SGA wouldn’t have made the trip if they would have known earlier. -via Twitter @joe_mussatto / December 2, 2021
