4. Durability

Many believe that the youth of this Thunder team will be their downfall when it could actually aid their championship aspirations. Through 67 games, their five starters have missed a combined 11 games.

The health and durability of this team will be a major factor during the postseason.

After missing the entire 2022-2023 season with an Achilles injury, Chet Holmgren has played in all outings for the Thunder thus far this year. Injury concerns were a main focal point surrounding Holmgren, but so far he’s laid them to rest this season.

These guys are ready to go and give everything they have every single night.

Jalen Williams has missed the most games for the team this season with seven. If they are able to keep themselves healthy through the end of the season and the playoffs, there is no way you can rule them out. At full health, this Thunder team has knocked off both the Celtics and Bucks and even blew out the Nuggets in Denver.

This is not a team anybody wants to see come playoff time.
