Kendrick Perkins wouldn't rule out a return to Boston when asked about his upcoming unrestricted free agency after the 2014-15 season.
After the Thunder beat the Celtics on Wednesday, Perkins was asked about the possibility of returning to the Celtics once free agency hits. "If the opportunity presented itself, I would," Perkins said. "But you never know. It's not on me. I have to be wanted, to come back." Perkins finished Wednesday's game with a typical stat line of six points, four rebounds, and one block and can be safely left on the waiver wire in almost all fantasy leagues. Nov 13 - 9:16 AM

Kendrick Perkins played well in a loss to the Bucks on Tuesday, finishing with seven points, nine boards, two assists and two blocks in 21 minutes.

It was an impressive line for Perk, but owners already know that his game doesn't translate to fantasy very well. Basically, if you are looking to Perkins for help your fantasy team probably isn't doing too hot. He can be safely ignored in all but the deepest of leagues.

Kendrick Perkins jokingly told reporters that he heard MVP chants during Sunday's win over Sacramento.

After receiving a standing ovation from the Oklahoma City crowd during the first quarter of Sunday's win over the Kings, Perkins said, "It felt good. I thought I heard a couple MVP chants." When told by reporters that no one heard those chants, Perkins added, "Yeah, neither did I. Just in my head." Despite a decent showing against the Kings, Perk is stuck behind Steven Adams and can be left on the waiver wire in standard leagues.

Kendrick Perkins did not score against the Nets on Monday.

There was no way he was going to duplicate his 17-point game on Saturday. If you picked up Perkins in your 60-man league, you can let him loose.
Nov 3 - 11:51 PM

Kendrick Perkins came out of nowhere for 17 points in 20 minutes against the Nuggets on Saturday, adding five rebounds and no other stats.

What in the Wide World of Sports is going on here? Perkins was 0-of-2 on Thursday and has scored just seven points in the first two games, but he made 6-of-7 from the field in a big win tonight. Yes, OKC needs offense, but we wouldn't add Perkins to our worst enemy's fantasy team.

Kendrick Perkins returned from a quad injury and had four points, eight rebounds, one steal and one block off the bench on Wednesday.

He played 21 minutes and will likely split time with Steven Adams, but Adams is the guy you want to own here, despite his quiet evening.

Kendrick Perkins said that he hasn't been told whether or not he'll start on opening night, but to him, it doesn't really matter.

"I started last year and a lot of games I was unhappy because I didn’t play in the fourth quarter, probably because I didn’t deserve it," he said. "So I want to give [Scott Brooks] a reason to have me out there in the fourth." No, Perkins certainly did not deserve the opportunity to finish games last season after averaging just 3.4 points and 4.9 rebounds. Steven Adams looks to have usurped Perkins for the starting role, and after an impressive preseason, Adams is the center to own in OKC.

Kendrick Perkins (quad) practiced on Thursday.

Perk has missed training camp and the entire preseason for the Thunder due to his ailing quad. The injury has led the way for Steven Adams to assume starting center duties and it's hard to envision Perkins reclaiming that role. He should be off fantasy radars in any format.

Kendrick Perkins' quadriceps injury will keep him on the sidelines yet again on Sunday.

Perk sat out training camp and he's now missed six games to open the exhibition season. Even if he does return for Tuesday's preseason finale, his conditioning may be an issue and it's hard to envision him overtaking Steven Adams for the starting C job on opening night. Perkins is still only 29 years old, but his days of fantasy relevance are long gone.

Kendrick Perkins (quad) will not suit up for Friday's preseason game vs. the Raptors.

Perkins averaged 3.4 points, 4.9 rebounds, and 0.5 blocks over 19.5 minutes of action last season, and it's actually kind of impressive how ineffective he can be in a starting center role on a playoff team. Steve Adams has been very good so far this preseason, and he's looking more and more like the starting center once the regular season begins, but with coach Scott Brooks you never really know. If Adams is named the starter he could be a late-round steal in standard leagues. However, if Brooks for some reason decides to go with Perkins, he still shouldn't be drafted in any league.

Kendrick Perkins' quad injury prevented him from playing in OKC's preseason opener on Wednesday.

Perkins claims to have lost 22 pounds prior to the start of training camp, but he's been on the sidelines since hurting himself in late September. His lower-body injury makes him even less likely to hold off Steven Adams for the starting center job, which should be music the ears of Thunder fans.
Oct 9 - 12:29 AM

Kendrick Perkins (quad) said he is down to 276 pounds at training camp.

He said he was all the way up to 298 pounds at the end of the season, which isn't a surprise. Perkins is going to miss a lot of training camp due to his quad injury and it may cost him his role as the starter. Hopefully you don't need us to tell you he's not worth drafting in any league.
Sep 30 - 12:56 AM

Kendrick Perkins (quad) will be out for the start of training camp.

Thunder GM Sam Presti said that Perkins recently tweaked his quad and will be re-evaluated in two weeks. With Perk out, Steven Adams will get a chance to establish himself as OKC's starting center during training camp and could end up being a late-round steal in fantasy drafts.
Sep 25 - 12:44 PM

According to Chris Broussard of ESPN.com, the Heat could make a run at acquiring Kendrick Perkins.

Needless to say, things will have to go horribly wrong for the Heat to make a move on Perkins. He has one year left on his deal and his decline as a big man has been a precipitous one. The Thunder added Michigan center Mitch McGary in the draft to make Big Perk even more expendable.

Oklahoma City Thunder general manager Sam Presti said on Thursday that the team has not discussed whether to use the amnesty clause on Kendrick Perkins.

"It's not something that's been considered to this point," he said. Perk's production has dipped every season he has been in Oklahoma City, and the development of Steven Adams may soon render him expendable. He is set to make $9.4 million next season, the fourth-highest salary on the team. With OKC already tight against the salary cap, they may change their tune on the big man when the free agency period comes around. Perkins should not be on fantasy radars heading in to next season.
