OKC Thunder: Five players listed as out for Suns game

The Thunder will be more shorthanded Monday than it's been all season. 

Five of OKC's top six scorers are listed as out against the Suns: Shai Gilgeous-Alexander (right calf contusion), Danilo Gallinari (left ankle injury maintenance), Dennis Schroder (personal reasons), Steven Adams (left lower leg contusion) and Nerlens Noel (right ankle sprain). 

Those players account for 75.7 points per game. 

Chris Paul will be the only point guard available and Mike Muscala will be the only center available. 

It's the second game of a back-to-back for the Thunder. Thunder coach Billy Donovan said he doesn't expect any of the injuries to be long-term. 

It's fortunate news for the Suns, who are the only undefeated team in the bubble at 5-0. Phoenix, Memphis, Portland and San Antonio are all jockeying for the No. 8 seed in the West. 

The Thunder and Suns will tip-off at 1:30 p.m. on Fox Sports Oklahoma.
