According to NewsOK, Steven Adams was held out of contact for today's Thunder practice. Adams remains questionable for Sunday's Blue-White scrimmage in Newcastle, Oklahoma. According to coach Billy Donovan, Adams recovery from the initial back injury is going well:

Donovan: "[Adams] actually did some stretching and running earlier in practice with the guys, but I think the contact part they wanted to give him an extra day. I think probably tomorrow (Saturday) they'll reevaluate him and see where he's at. But right now I think from everything I'm hearing he's progressing real well and should be back soon."

There is no official date set for Adams return. As of right now, the rest of the roster is fully healthy. Saturday will be an off day, and Sunday will have the Blue-White scrimmage at 3 PM. The scrimmage will not be televised.
