Starting center Kendrick Perkins was held out of the Oklahoma City Thunder's practice Tuesday while getting treatment for a strained muscle in his right hip. Coach Scott Brooks says Perkins is still considered day-to-day as he recovers from the injury suffered in the clinching Game 4 of Oklahoma City's first-round playoff sweep against Dallas. The Thunder won't start the Western Conference semifinals until at least Saturday. Brooks says Perkins is ''going to do everything to put himself in a position to play. If that happens, great. If it doesn't, we have to make adjustments.'' Brooks says he won't have the final decision on whether Perkins plays. It'll be up to Perkins and the team's medical staff.
