OKLAHOMA CITY: GUARDS: RUSSELL WESTBROOK is going to likely miss the first 4-to-6 weeks of the regular season after getting another procedure done on Oct. 1 to reduce swelling on his knee. It will probably take him some time to get rid of the rust of not playing all summer . . . THABO SEFOLOSHA should play even more minutes this season with Kevin Martin gone. He has added a three-point shot to his repertoire . . . REGGIE JACKSON could end up absorbing a lot of the minutes that went to James Harden two years ago and Martin last season. But he's nowhere near the offensive threat . . . JEREMY LAMB will push Jackson for that sixth-man role. He's dominated against lesser competition . . . DEREK FISHER will get minutes as a player/coach. FORWARDS: KEVIN DURANT may have to take on an even bigger role in the regular season as the Thunder try to replace Kevin Martin's offensive production. Either way, he's the MVP among the league's non-LeBrons . . . SERGE IBAKA has had his postseason issues and still struggles defensively outside of rim protection, but he has added value with his mid-range shooting . . . NICK COLLISON's biggest skill is his ability to take charges. He'll continue to log big minutes at the four and five as a glue guy . . . One of two very raw young players, PERRY JONES III and ANDRE ROBERSON, has a chance for playing time on a thin team. CENTERS: KENDRICK PERKINS was a disaster in last year's postseason, but still provides the kind of low-post muscle the Thunder look for . . . Rookie STEVEN ADAMS could take over for Perkins down the road, but he's too raw to make an impact this year . . . HASHEEM THABEET fills out the final roster spot.
DENVER: GUARDS: TY LAWSON is turning into something of a one-man army as the roster around him crumbles. As good as he is as a quick playmaker who can knock down an open three, his supporting cast is lacking . . . EVAN FOURNIER is better than RANDY FOYE now, and he's certainly a bigger part of Denver's future. Fournier proved surprisingly ready for the NBA last season. While Foye brings more scoring power to a team that suddenly lacks offense, he's both inefficient and one-dimensional . . . NATE ROBINSON will provide instant offense and lead the second unit . . . ANDRE MILLER will lose a few minutes this year, but the 37-year-old still has good basketball left. FORWARDS: Coming off a late-season ACL tear, DANILO GALLINARI will be lucky to make it back by December . . . KENNETH FARIED will likely never develop into anything more than an energy guy and high-volume rebounder, but he's good at what he does . . . WILSON CHANDLER can shoot and defend multiple positions. With Gallinari a question mark, he could be in for a much bigger role this year . . . DARRELL ARTHUR is an interesting second-unit player. He's an athlete who was starting to show some skill in Memphis before getting hurt . . . Gunning wingman JORDAN HAMILTON may get a longer look in the second half of the season . . . QUINCY MILLER is likely ticketed for more D-League action . . . ANTHONY RANDOLPH is a lost cause. CENTERS: The time has arrived for JAVALE MCGEE. The front office wants him on the floor full-time. For all the knucklehead plays, he's still an incredible athlete in a massive 7-foot frame . . . Talk of J.J. HICKSON potentially starting is absurd. A brutal defender unable to play within the flow of an offense, he's a second-unit talent . . . TIMOFEY MOZGOV is Plan B behind McGee. The 7-footer can defend and set screens.

*Thunder-Nuggets Preview* =========================


Oklahoma City (19-4) at Denver (14-9), 9:00 p.m. EDT

The NBA's hottest team isn't just winning. The Oklahoma City Thunder have been completely running by the competition.

The Thunder will look to extend the longest active win streak in the NBA to seven games when they visit the Denver Nuggets on Tuesday night.

Oklahoma City (19-4), which has won 14 of its previous 15, has been excelling primarily with speed and athleticism on both ends of the floor. The Thunder are averaging 17.8 fast break points, one of the best totals in the league, with stars Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook leading the way.

Durant leads the NBA in scoring at 28.5 points per game, and he's done his best work while attacking the basket, with 95 of his 206 field goals coming at or around the rim.

Westbrook is averaging 21.0 points and has been creating opportunities to open the floor with a team-leading 40 steals.

"It just gets us easy baskets," Durant told the team's official website about their up-tempo style. "Once you start to hit layups and get dunks, it opens the flood gates a little bit."

Against the Magic on Sunday, the Thunder ran out to 27 fast-break points and scored 50 in the paint. They were a bit sluggish in the fourth quarter, however, allowing Orlando to rally from a 16-point deficit before holding on to win 101-98.

"We were able to get started there, but you have to be able to play 48 minutes," said Durant, who had 28 points and nine rebounds. "(On Sunday) we had some tough stretches but we just kept fighting."

If the Nuggets are going to slow the Thunder, they'll need a better defensive performance than the last time these teams met. Durant scored 38 points and Westbrook added 30 in Oklahoma City's 115-113 home victory on Nov. 18.

Five Denver players scored in double figures in that one, led by Ty Lawson's 29, but the Nuggets allowed the Thunder to shoot 13 for 27 from 3-point range.

The Nuggets (14-9) have been playing well at home of late, winning seven of their last eight in Denver. Still, coach Brian Shaw knows his team's level of play needs to rise against the Thunder.

"I told them that if we want any chance winning against Oklahoma City, we're going to have to do a lot better in every area to even have a chance to win that game," Shaw said.

The team has received a spark from Nate Robinson, who is averaging 14.7 points since Nov. 25 despite not starting a single game. While he's always been fearless on the offensive end despite his 5-foot-9 stature, Robinson has also improved on defense.

In the team's last game, a 102-93 victory against New Orleans on Sunday, Robinson had two blocked shots. It marked only the fourth time in the guard's nine-year career that he has recorded more than one block in a game.

"I told the guards to watch out, I'm blocking shots," Robinson joked. "I just really try to take pride in my defense."
