Thunder vs. Kings channel, injury reports

For the first time this season, the Oklahoma City Thunder and Sacramento Kings will face off.

This month, the Thunder will have three games against the Kings, the first of which is Tuesday.

Sacramento is on a small run, having won four of its last six games, but the team is probably too far out of the race to reach the 10th seed. The Kings are 4.0 games back from the 10th-place San Antonio Spurs.

While they teeter toward elimination, they’ll also be without important players including De’Aaron Fox.

Here are the details of how to watch:

Opponent: Sacramento Kings
Date and time: May 4, 7 p.m. CT
How to watch: Bally Sports Oklahoma
Radio station: WWLS 98.1FM OKC
