“I think he walked in this morning and that’s when we started to kinda unpack it,” Daigneault said of the injury. “I don’t have a ton of detail on it to be honest with you. It happened pretty quickly today.”
Daigneault said there is no set timetable for Gilgeous-Alexander’s return — only that it’s “not day-to-day; it’s going to be a more significant amount of time.”
The coach indicated the injury didn’t happen on a particular play and in all likelihood is “a little bit more cumulative” from the wear and tear of the condensed season.
Gilgeous-Alexander, who leads Oklahoma City with 23.7 points per game, is averaging a team-high 34 minutes.
“Like I said, he’s a higher-minute player that’s tracked a lot of miles so far this season after a short offseason,” Daigneault said.
At 19-25, the Thunder are 12th in the Western Conference standings.
