Oklahoma City Thunder rookie guard Luguentz Dort was originally ruled out for Game 2 against the Houston Rockets, but he is now questionable.

Dort has been dealing with a sprained right knee that he suffered in the team’s next-to-last “seeding game” against the Miami Heat.

If he does suit up to play, he will be tasked with being the primary defender on James Harden.

In 36 games this season (28 starts), Dort averaged 6.8 points and 2.3 rebounds per game, while spending most of the season on a two-way contract.

He was then signed to a four-year, $5.4 million contract in June.
