REPORT: Thunder's Sefolosha To Return To Starting Lineup

Posted: Updated:
OKLAHOMA CITY -

According to sources, Thunder shooting guard Thabo Sefolosha is expected to be in the starting lineup for Oklahoma City on Monday for Game 1 against the Clippers.

Sefolosha did not play a single minute of the Thunder's Game 6 or Game 7 victories against the Grizzlies after Caron Butler replaced him in the starting lineup.

He experienced noted struggles in the first round and the Thunder chose to go in a different direction because of Thabo's shooting woes. He is just 3-of-20 from 3-point range since returning from injury.

In fact, Sefolosha is averaging just 3.4 points, 2.8 rebounds and one steal per game so far in the playoffs on 33 percent shooting.

Sefolosha has experienced success in the past in covering L.A. point guard Chris Paul, particularly in screen-and-roll situations, which could explain his reinstatement.
