OKLAHOMA CITY - The Oklahoma City Thunder will be without starting center Kendrick Perkins for Friday's matchup against Golden State.

Perkins is out with a knee contusion he suffered during OKC's one point loss against the Rockets.

Nazr Mohammed will start in place of the injured Perkins. Fans can expect to see Nick Collison with increased playing time in Perkins' absence as well as some possible court time for Cole Aldrich.

From Friday's Thunder shootaround, it was also reported that Kevin Durant didn't go through practice as usual because of stomach pain. Durant is still expected to play.

Thabo Sefolosha remains listed as day-to-day as he has missed 11 games with what the team is calling right foot soreness. Daequan Cook will be the starting two-guard for OKC's matchup against the Warriors.

Tipoff is set for 7 p.m. Be sure to tune in to News 9 at 10 p.m. for highlights and post game interviews.
