Oklahoma City Thunder guard Shai Gilgeous-Alexander is playing through a quad injury. Gilgeous-Alexander said he was injured a week ago in a game against the Utah Jazz.

"Yeah, little banged up in my quad. Happened in the Utah game," Gilgeous-Alexander said about the injury when asked about it after the Thunder's victory over the New Orleans Pelicans on Tuesday.

Oklahoma City head coach Mark Daigneault deferred to his star guard, but didn't seem too concerned about the injury.

"He’s banged up, for sure. He’s not 100%. We’re monitoring it, but he’s certainly not a hundred percent. I’ll let him speak on it," Daigneault said about Gilgeous-Alexander.

The Thunder coach later added that the injury was "not to the point of not playing obviously, he was out there tonight." With Oklahoma City in a fight for the top seed in the Western Conference, it's worth watching to see if Gilgeous-Alexander misses any games to let his quad heal.
