Adams was forced from the court in the second quarter after hurting his right hand as he was fouled.

He returned briefly to take his free throws left-handed, making one of two, but was subbed out and did not return.

The second-year centre has been named to represent the international team in the Rising Stars Challenge at the All-Star weekend in New York City.

The Thunder moved to a winning record of 26-25 to boost their playoff hopes.
