Dennis Schröder Returns To NBA’s Campus

Thunder guard Dennis Schröder has returned to the NBA’s campus at Walt Disney World, a team spokesperson confirmed to Joe Mussatto of The Oklahoman on Tuesday. Schröder left Orlando over a week ago in order to be with his wife for the birth of their second child.

Assuming Schröder tested negative for the coronavirus for each of the last seven days while away from the campus, the expectation is that he’ll have to quarantine for just four days now that he’s back at Disney World. We don’t know exactly when Schröder returned and began quarantining, so it remains to be seen whether he’ll be available to play in Oklahoma City’s final seeding game on Friday vs. the Clippers.

At the very least, Schröder figures to miss Wednesday’s game against Miami. If the veteran guard doesn’t clear quarantine in time for Friday’s game, the Thunder will plan to work him back into the rotation during the first game of the postseason next week, barring any quarantine- or testing-related complications.

While he was away from the NBA’s campus, Schröder was named a finalist for the NBA’s Sixth Man of the Year award for 2019/20. He has enjoyed the best year of his career in OKC this season, averaging 18.9 PPG, 4.0 APG, and 3.7 RPG with career-best shooting percentages of 46.9% from the floor and 37.9% from beyond the arc.

    OKC loses Harden,KD and Westbrook and they are still a great team. Great job by that management team

      Great teams don’t lose in 5 during the first round every year.

        Harden-Westbrook, I like the Rockets, but Thunder scare you at all? Looks like that is your first round get.

      they aren’t a great team, but agreed management has done a great job.

    Great teams go to the finals more than never in the past 25 years. Go Heat.

    The thunder are one of the best run franchises in professional sports. If they were in a bigger market they’d be unreal. In a string of drafts they picked:
    Durant
    Westbrook
    Harden
    Ibaka
    Jeff Green
    Sefalosha
    Adams
    On and on and on. Also they managed to turn Westbrook and George into six first rounders plus players. Their front office is legit.

      They would be one of the best run franchises if they actually managed to keep any of the three MVP’s they drafted 10 years ago.

      What’s so great about Steven Adams? Sure he’s extremely strong, but averaging 7.4 rebounds per game (for his career) isn’t that impressive. Adams is above average, but isn’t worthy of being paid among the best at his position like Embiid, Jokic, KAT, and Gobert.

      The talent drafted by OKC declines though. I’m still wondering about 2019’s Darius Bazley and his lost year interning. Presti drafted #21 Brandon Clarke (23yo, 21PER) then traded him for #23 Bazley (19yo, 9PER) and a future second.

        Well if I would have looked up Bazley, I would have found a couple links on him on the next page over. >>>
