The Oklahoma City Thunder, 0-2 this preseason, welcome the Charlotte Bobcats to the Chesapeake Energy Arena on Tuesday night. Oklahoma City has dropped two road games to start the preseason, in Houston and Utah.
Thabo Sefolosha and Kendrick Perkins will once again not play for the Thunder, with James Harden also sitting out the contest against Charlotte. All three are expected to be ready for the regular season opener.
Russell Westbrook, who did not play in Oklahoma City's 97-81 loss to Utah on Friday, is expected back in the lineup against the Bobcats. In addition to Westbrook, the projected starting five for the Thunder and coach Scott Brooks will include Kevin Durant, Serge Ibaka, Cole Aldrich and Lazar Hayward.
Rookie Perry Jones III from Baylor looked good in the game against the Jazz, scoring 14 points on 6-of-11 shooting from the field. However, Jones III has yet to share the floor with veterans Westbrook and Durant.
