The Thunder might be without starting shooting guard Corey Brewer for their first-round playoff series opener Sunday against Utah.

Brewer sprained his right knee during Oklahoma City’s regular-season finale against Memphis. He did light work Friday and didn’t practice.

Another Thunder shooting guard Harrison Phillips Jersey , Alex Abrines, is in concussion protocol. He was injured during a win over the Miami Heat on Monday and didn’t play against Memphis. The reserve averages 4.7 points per game and has made 84 3-pointers this season.

Coach Billy Donovan said he’s not sure if either will be ready for the opener.

”I don’t know that yet,” he said. ”We’ll have to get closer to that. I don’t want to speculate either way. Every day, we’ll find out a little more.”

The Thunder added the 32-year-old Brewer after the All-Star break to fill the void left when Andre Roberson was knocked out for the season with a ruptured left patellar tendon. Brewer started 16 of 18 games with the Thunder and posted averages of 10.1 points and 2.1 steals per game. Oklahoma City is 11-5 with him as a starter.

The injuries could force 19-year-old rookie Terrance Ferguson into a more significant role. Ferguson has 12 starts this season and averages 3.1 points for the season. He’s an explosive dunker and an improving 3-point shooter.

”Eighty-two games, I think, has helped him Harrison Smith Jersey ,” Donovan said. ”He’s obviously been able to be in the rotation. I think that was really important during the year.”

Donovan didn’t say how he would adjust if Brewer and Abrines are unavailable. He said Ferguson’s mental approach will help him if he is given more responsibility.

”He’s done a really good job of keeping himself ready and focused,” Donovan said. ”Obviously, the playoffs are new for him. This is the first time he’s going through it. I’ve got a lot of confidence in Terrance just because of his competitiveness and how hard he works, and he’s a bright guy and will put forth a great effort getting himself prepared and ready to play.”



A record performance from rookie Clayton Keller helped the Arizona Coyotes knock off one of the NHL’s top teams.

Keller set the Coyotes’ rookie goal mark with an empty-net score in Arizona’s 4-1 win over the Tampa Bay Lightning on Monday night. Keller’s goal was his 23rd, surpassing Peter Mueller’s total in the 2007-08 season. Keller also became the 22nd Coyote to reach 60 points in a season, and Arizona improved to 17-12-6 since January.

”I think we’re trying to treat every game like a playoff game and we kind of get up for that Steve Largent Jersey ,” Keller said. ”We just want to come out and finish the year strong and hopefully bring something home for next year.”

The Coyotes got two goals from defensemen as Trevor Murphy and Jacob Chychrun each scored to help Arizona. Brendan Perlini also scored for the Coyotes, and Antti Raanta had 19 saves

Chychrun scored the winner on the power play at 17:22 of the second period as Arizona, which blew a two-goal lead on Saturday against Florida, held Tampa Bay to just 20 shots on goal.

”I was kind of hard on them in practice in the other day and they responded,” Arizona coach Rick Tocchet said. ”I liked the way we played tonight.”

The Lightning played without captain Steven Stamkos, who missed the game with an undisclosed lower-body injury and is considered day-to-day.

Nikita Kucherov scored on the power play with 5:23 left for his 38th goal. Louis Domingue made 31 saves facing the team he started the season with as Tampa Bay has lost consecutive games for the second time in 10 days.

Since scoring seven goals against the New York Islanders on Thursday Oren Burks Jersey , the Lightning have two goals in two games.

”We can play better in the offensive zone than we have,” Tampa Bay coach Jon Cooper said. ”We just have to get a little bit confidence factor of guys being able to make plays the way they can and execute the way they can. I think that’s one thing we were lacking tonight, our execution was just a little off and obviously the guys were getting a little frustrated.”

Tampa Bay has been in first place in the Eastern Conference since Oct. 19 but is just two points ahead of the Boston Bruins, who have played two fewer games.

”We were definitely not as sharp offensively as we have been,” Lightning defenseman Anton Stralman said. ”A big game for us trying to fight off Boston behind us and that’s not what we wanted.”

After a scoreless first period, Murphy fired a slap shot from the outside of the left circle that hit off the inside back post at 10:45 for his first career goal. Chychrun’s goal Kemal Ishmael Jersey , on an open look from the slot with Domingue prone on the ice, made it 2-0.

Arizona increased the lead to 3-0 when Perlini was in the slot for a quick one-timer off a feed from Dylan Strome. The goal was originally waived off for goaltender interference but overturned on a challenge.

NOTES: Keller extended his scoring streak to nine games. … Tampa Bay RW Adam Erne left the game in the first period with a lower-body injury and did not return. … Lightning D Slater Koekkoek was in the lineup for the first time since e was a healthy scratch in 11 of the previous 12 games. . Domingue had his personal four-game winning streak end.
