C. Miles - SF

T. Ariza - SF
Ariza (personal) didn't practice Friday and is out Saturday against the Thunder, Gina Mizell of The Athletic reports.
Ariza missed Wednesday's contest against San Antonio due to handling a family matter, and will be out Saturday versus Oklahoma City. With Ariza absent, Mikal Bridges and Josh Jackson will probably see more minutes than usual.

T. Craig - SF
Craig (hamstring) is questionable for Saturday's game against New Orleans, Harrison Wind of BSNDenver.com reports.
It's unknown when Craig started feeling tightness in his left hamstring and as a result will be listed as questionable for Saturday's date versus the Pelicans. If Craig doesn't play Saturday, Juancho Hernangomez and and Malik Beasley will likely see increased usage.

A. Abrines - SG
Abrines (illness) didn't practice Friday but will travel with the team over the Thunder's three-game road trip, Brett Dawson of The Athletic reports.
Abrines left Wednesday's game early due to an illness and was absent at practice Friday. However, the native of Spain will be traveling with the Thunder starting Saturday in Phoenix and may end up giving it a go.

R. Westbrook - PG
Westbrook (ankle) participated in practice Friday including part of contact portions, Brett Dawson of The Athletic reports.
Westbrook has not played in a game since scoring 17 points on Nov. 5 due to a lingering left ankle sprain but remains optimistic about a possible return against Phoenix on Saturday. The former UCLA guard currently doesn't have a definitive injury designation for Saturday yet. Teammate Dennis Schroder will likely continue to start as long as Westbrook remains sidelined.

J. Green - PF
Green (jaw) practiced with the Memphis Hustle on Friday.
It's just a pit stop in the G League for Green, who continues to make his way back from a broken jaw. The return to practice is certainly encouraging for Green, and he should be close to a return given he's approaching the end of his initial four-week timetable.
Added 1:58 pm (EST)
W. Matthews - SG
Matthews (hamstring) is doubtful for Saturday's game against the Warriors, Brad Townsend of The Dallas Morning News reports.
Matthews suffered a strained left hamstring in Wednesday's win over the Jazz and did not return. It looks like the injury will cost him at least one game, but hamstring injuries are known to linger. Dorian Finney-Smith got the start the last time Matthews was out, and that will likely be the case again with J.J. Barea also seeing extended minutes in the backcourt.
