Russ Isabella-US PRESSWIRE

Over the past week, the preseason went on and the Thunder attempted to narrow down their roster for the first game of the regular season.

In this week's preseason games, the Thunder went 3-0, defeating the Bobcats 120-98, the Suns 107-97 and the Nuggets 108-101. Let's look at what happened.

-DeAndre Liggins seems to be the most likely candidate to make the 15th spot on the Thunder's roster, beating out Daniel Orton, Hollis Thompson and Andy Rautins. (Article)

-Kendrick Perkins, Thabo Sefolosha and James Harden both returned from their injuries Sunday in the Thunder's win over the Nuggets. Perkins played 18 minutes and got 2 points and 4 rebounds, Sefolosha played 20 minutes and racked up 8 points while Harden played 29 minutes, scoring 16 points. This was also the first time this preseason that the Thunder starting 5 all played. (Boxscore)
