Kendrick Perkins Injury Update: Thunder Center A 'Game-Time Decision' For Game 2 Vs. Lakers

Kendrick Perkins will be a game-time decision for Game 2 of the 2012 NBA Playoffs second round Western Conference series between the Oklahoma City Thunder and the Los Angeles Lakers, according to Thunder coach Scott Brooks. The center reportedly aggravated the hip injury he sustained during the Thunder's first round series against the Dallas Mavericks.

Perkins was not expected to be limited for Game 1 on Monday, but wound up with just four points and one rebound in 17 minutes before leaving the game. If he is held out Wednesday night, expect Nazr Mohammed, Serge Ibaka and Nick Collison to continue to see more minutes.
