OKC Thunder: Abdel Nader misses final seeding game
Thunder wing Abdel Nader was a late scratch Friday night after experiencing "tingling in his elbow," coach Billy Donovan said after the Thunder's loss to the Clippers.
Donovan said he found out just before the team had to submit its active/inactive list. Kevin Hervey took Nader's place on the active roster.
"Really it's something I think more with his neck, where's he's got almost something with his neck that's kinda running down to his elbow," Donovan said. "They're just going to get it checked out. At this point in time we're just gonna be a little bit more cautious."
Nader is averaging career highs in points (6.3), rebounds (1.8) and assists (0.7) in his third NBA season and second with the Thunder. He's shooting 37.5% from 3-point range.
