Perkins, who has averaged 3.4 points and 5.0 rebounds in 54
starts, was injured during the third quarter of last Thursday's
loss to the Miami Heat and did not play on Sunday against the
Los Angeles Clippers.
Rookie Steven Adams has started all three games that Perkins,
29, has missed this season for Oklahoma City, who are in first
place in the Northwest Division at 43-14 but have lost their
last two games.
Next up for the Thunder will be the visiting Cleveland Cavaliers
