  • Thunder's Lindy Waters: Good to go against Utah

    Waters (ankle) is available for Tuesday's game versus the Jazz.

  • Thunder's Lindy Waters: Questionable for Tuesday

    Waters is questionable for Tuesday's game versus Utah due to a left ankle strain.

    Waters has appeared in five of the Thunder's last six contests, though he's logged double-digit minutes on only two of those occasions. If he's able to play through the ankle issue Tuesday, Waters could maintain a small role in the Oklahoma City rotation.

  • Thunder's Lindy Waters: Gets 10 minutes off bench

    Waters logged two points (1-2 FG, 0-1 3Pt), two rebounds and one block across 10 minutes Sunday in the Thunder's 120-104 loss to the Pistons.

    After turning in 33- and 20-point performances with the G League's Oklahoma City Blue on Jan. 21 and 24, Waters rejoined the parent club ahead of the Thunder's last two contests. After seeing two minutes of garbage time at the tail end of Friday's 107-83 win over the Pelicans, Waters saw more extended playing time Sunday, but he didn't check into the contest until the Thunder trailed by 16 points with 9:52 remaining in the fourth quarter. The 26-year-old doesn't look as though he'll be a regular contributor in the Oklahoma City rotation while the club is at full strength.

  • Thunder's Lindy Waters: Leads team in points

    Waters logged 33 points (12-19 FG, 7-9 3Pt, 1-1 FT), six rebounds, two assists and two steals in 30 minutes during Oklahoma City's 128-105 win over Mexico City on Sunday, Jan. 21.

    Waters was highly productive offensively for the Blue, as he led the team in scoring. Most of his damage was done from three-point distance, as he connected with seven long-range shots.

  • Thunder's Lindy Waters: Won't play Saturday

    Waters logged 25 points (10-21 FG, 2-10 3Pt, 2-2 FT), eight rebounds, five assists and one steal in 35 minutes Dec. 8 in the G League Oklahoma City's 135-114 loss to the Osceola Magic.

    Waters was second on the team with 25 points. As one of the Thunder's two-way players, Waters will likely continue to move back and forth between the G League and NBA throughout the season.

  • Thunder's Lindy Waters: Good to go against Philadelphia

    Waters (back) is available for Saturday's game versus the 76ers.

  • Thunder's Lindy Waters: Questionable for Saturday

    Waters (back) is questionable for Saturday's game against the 76ers.

    Waters is dealing with lower back spasms and is considered day-to-day. He's been getting some rare minutes in recent games due to Jalen Williams' hip injury, but he played just five minutes Wednesday against the Bulls before leaving for good with his back issue.

  • Thunder's Lindy Waters: Won't return Wednesday

    Waters (lower back spasms) has been ruled out for the remainder of Wednesday's game against the Bulls, Rylan Stiles of reports.

    Waters will finish Wednesday's tilt scoreless with two rebounds, an assist and a block over five minutes. Kenrich Williams, Isaiah Joe and Aaron Wiggins are likely candidates to receive more action for the rest of the contest. Waters' next chance to play will come Saturday against the 76ers.

  • Thunder's Lindy Waters: Garbage time special Tuesday

    Waters registered six points (2-3 FG, 2-3 3Pt) over five minutes during Tuesday's 123-87 victory over the Spurs.

    Waters featured in the rotation for just the fifth time this season, joining a number of his teammates who have also seen limited run thus far. This was simply a result of the Thunder gaining control early against a Spurs team playing for nothing more than lottery balls. Waters remains a non-factor and barring a significant run of injuries to other players, it appears he will spend more time cheering on from the sideline than actually playing this season.

  • Thunder's Lindy Waters: Returns to OKC

    Waters agreed Friday with the Thunder on a one-year, two-way contract, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    Though Oklahoma City chose to decline Waters' $1.93 million team option for 2023-24 heading into the start of free agency earlier this offseason, the 26-year-old wing will ultimately stick around with the Thunder as one of the team's three two-way players. A career 36 percent shooter from downtown over 66 appearances with the Thunder the past two seasons, Waters will likely face a tougher path to playing time in 2023-24 after Oklahoma City lost none of its key rotation players from the past season while adding rookies Cason Wallace and Vasilije Micic and returning 2022 No. 2 overall pick Chet Holmgren from injury.

  • Lindy Waters: Thunder decline option

    Oklahoma City declined Waters' $1.9 million team option Thursday, making him an unrestricted free agent, Clemente Almanza of USA Today reports.

    Waters played in 66 games for the Thunder over the past two years but won't be back for another year, unless he's re-signed at a cheaper price. The 25-year-old averaged 5.2 points and 1.8 rebounds in 12.9 minutes last season.

  • Thunder's Lindy Waters: Scores 10 points off bench

    Waters totaled 10 points (4-7 FG, 2-5 3Pt), three rebounds and one steal over 16 minutes during Thursday's 114-98 victory over the Jazz.

    Waters scored in double figures for the first time since March 8. However, he's playing just 14.3 minutes per contest since returning from a three-game absence at the end of March, so he lacks significant fantasy intrigue.

  • Thunder's Lindy Waters: Makes return from foot injury

    Waters (foot) finished with eight points (3-7 FG, 2-6 3Pt), two rebounds, one assist and one block across 17 minutes in Friday's 121-117 loss to the Pacers.

    Waters recaptured a spot in the Thunder rotation after missing the previous three games while recovering from left foot plantar fasciitis. The third-year wing has now received double-digit minutes in five consecutive appearances and is averaging 6.0 points, 1.8 rebounds, 1.6 three-pointers and 0.8 assists per game over that stretch.
