OKLAHOMA CITY – The Thunder will rest back-up point guard Reggie Jackson in tonight’s game against the Sacramento Kings downtown inside “The Peake”. The 3rd year point guard from Boston College slightly injured his back yesterday in practice, so he will NOT play against the Kings.
Coming into tonight’s game, Jackson and rookie center Steven Adams were the only Thunder players to have played in all 71 games so far this season.
All-Star Russell Westbrook will start for OKC and 39-year old veteran Derek Fisher will back him up. After tonight, the Thunder only has 10 regular season games left before the NBA Playoffs begin April 19th.
