As they face the Oklahoma City Thunder on Thursday evening, the Portland Trail Blazers could potentially see the return of two big men who have missed the previous few contests. Jabari Walker is listed as questionable for the upcoming game against Oklahoma City and Deandre Ayton is listed as doubtful.

Here is the full injury report for the matchup:

INJURY REPORT 1/11 @ OKC:

OUT

Moses Brown (L Wrist Fracture)

Robert Williams III (R Knee Ligament Tear)

DOUBTFUL

Deandre Ayton (R Knee Tendinitis)

QUESTIONABLE

Jabari Walker (L Knee Tendinitis)

The potential return of Walker and Ayton would help the Blazers to strengthen their center rotation that has been decimated by injuries. In the absence of the two, Portland has played Duop Reath and Ibou Badji as the only two in the middle.

Centers Robert Williams III and Moses Brown are both out indefinitely. If Walker and Ayton can’t return, the Blazers may be forced to once again play a short center rotation.

The Blazers and Thunder will face off at 5:00 PM, Pacific tomorrow.
