Thabo Sefolosha and Kendrick Perkins are tending to injuries early in training camp.

The Oklahoma City Thunder are tending to a couple of injuries during the first week of training camp, with starters Thabo Sefolosha and Kendrick Perkins missing practice time.

Perkins continues to recover from offseason wrist surgery that will keep the Thunder center out of action for most of the preseason. The team is focusing on having Perkins ready for the start of the regular season, with hopes to have him back in the lineup for the season opener on Nov. 1 at San Antonio.

Sefolosha remains sidelined during the first week of camp while tending to a leg injury as he too looks ahead to being ready for the start of the season.

Coach Scott Brooks continues to keep his playing rotation intact by keeping Sixth Man of the Year, James Harden running with the second unit instead of filling in for Sefolosha at shooting guard with the starting unit. That approach also makes for more competitive scrimmage work during camp.
