OKC Thunder: Dennis Schroder clears quarantine

Thunder point guard Dennis Schroder has cleared quarantine and will start Friday night against the Clippers, coach Billy Donovan said before tip-off. 

Schroder is set to play for the first time since Aug. 1. Schroder left the bubble for the birth of his daughter, and recently returned and completed the mandatory self-isolation period. 

"If we can get him out there with some of the main guys that he'd be on the floor with, that'd be good," Donovan said. "And then maybe some minutes where he's running a second unit."

Donovan said he doesn't anticipate the Thunder's "main guys playing very much," but Schroder will have a chance to find his rhythm after a two-week break. 

"There is a fine line there for us with him," Donovan said. "I'm sensitive to the fact that he's been away from it and he needs some kind of play to get himself back." 

Schroder, a Sixth Man of the Year finalist, is averaging 18.9 points per game.
