Derek Fisher is back in a Thunder uniform. Insurance policy? Sure, why not. Safety valve if Russell Westbrook or Reggie Jackson get into foul trouble? I suppose.

Via Royce Young at Daily Thunder:

But that was assuming he wasn't going to be jumping right back into the rotation because surely not, right?

"Definitely, he will play," so says Scott Brooks.

Oh.

More Brooks: "Does he take spots on the floor, minutes from other guys? To have a good team you have to have sacrifices from everybody."

Oh.

"Minutes are going to be had, minutes are probably going to be taken away from many guys. Not just because of Derek Fisher, but as the season goes on, sometimes the rotations become smaller."

Oh. No.
