Bad news is coming out of the Oklahoma City Thunder’s camp Sunday evening. Backup guard Eric Maynor is lost for the season after tearing his ACL. Maynor was Westbrook’s primary backup the last few years and now the load will be carried by Reggie Jackson and Royal Ivey.
It is hoped that Maynor will return next season at full strength. With only playing nine games, Maynor averaged 4.2 points per game as well as 2.4 assists. The 15 minutes he puts into the game as a reserve player will surely be missed this season.
Against the Spurs Sunday, Jackson played 23 minutes and scored 11 points. Ivey played six minutes and scored two points. The Thunder won the game 108-96.
