Thunder: Terrance Ferguson to miss fifth game for right hip soreness

DENVER – Thunder guard Terrance Ferguson will be sidelined for the Thunder’s game at Denver Saturday, OKC coach Billy Donovan announced after practice Friday.

Saturday will mark the fifth straight game Ferguson has missed due to right hip soreness.

“He’s doing good,” Donovan said. “He’s making some good progress. He’s definitely getting better.”

There is no set date for Ferguson’s return, but he traveled with the team on its current four-game road trip.

Hamidou Diallo (right elbow hyperextension) also remains out, contributing to the Thunder’s lack of wing depth. Diallo is scheduled to be reevaluated in another one to three weeks. He worked with assistant coach David Akinyooye in one-on-one drills after practice Friday, using his offhand to score at the basket.

In the wake of Ferguson and Diallo’s injuries, Abdel Nader has made four consecutive starts. After shooting 5-of-6 from 3-point range at Sacramento Wednesday, Nader is leading the Thunder in 3-point percentage (46.7) this season.
