Perkins plays through hip issue

News: Thunder center Kendrick Perkins was able to play through a hip injury during Game 1 of the Western Conference Semifinals on Monday night. Perkins finished with four points and one rebound, making both of his field-goal attempts. He also added two blocks, while logging 17 minutes of game action.

Analysis: Perkins seemed to re-aggravate his hip injury late in the first half, but he was back on the bench for the second half. While he did not re-enter the game, the Thunder were able by 20-plus points at that point, so he wasn’t needed. Perkins will be counted on the try and help slow down the Lakers’ pair of 7-footers in this series, which will be key for the Thunder to advance. He can be considered a very low-end Fantasy option moving forward.
