Kendrick Perkins Out Indefinitely With Strained Hip

According to a Thunder press release, Kendrick Perkins has a strained right hip, and there is no timetable for his return. The good news is Perkins will get time to rest after OKC swept the Mavs in the first round: “The Oklahoma City Thunder announced that an MRI today confirmed that Kendrick Perkins suffered a right hip muscle strain in last night’s game against the Dallas Mavericks. Perkins’ return to play will be based on his progress and recovery in the coming days.”

    Hope he gets well. Man, David Stern is crippling a whole lot of players with his 66 game season. Smh.

    He wants no part of Bynum. He decided to hide under the bed.

    Perk’s scowl will return for the second round!

  • OkC

    @NYPlaya Perk shut down Bynum the last time played that’s why LA started playing Jordan Hill and don’t worry homie is going to play the next round

  • MikeC.

    Just feed the man a bucket of broken glass and he’ll be fine.

  • lakernation

    I hate to say it but…..YES! I hope he’s out for the whole second round. My lake show will terrorize Ibaka down low….he will foul out almost every game against us. LEGO!

    Do the Lakers allow Denver to win to force a game 6 then take on the Thunder with a full line up? Or do they stroll into OKC with MWP packing light.

  • biggieman

    Don’t get too excited Laker fans…. Perk will be back, and Kobe will be watching from the couch in round 3!

    Perk is a goon!

    I still love him, but Perk is what he is… a slow footed post defender who can’t score. He is an asset and a liability depending on who the team is. I hope he gets well and plays in the second round. He is still fun to watch… even if he no longer wears the green!

    Love Perk. He knows what he is, which is something most guys never figure out. He defends, sets screens, rebounds and occasionally scores in the post. Hope he bounces back.
