The Oklahoma City Thunder are off to a 3-7 start to the 2014-15 NBA season.

It's been extremely difficult for coach Scott Brooks as his two best players have been out with injuries. Kevin Durant fractured his foot on Oct. 11, and he is expected to miss up to two months. Russell Westbrook fractured his right hand on Oct. 31, and his return is still unknown.

Andre Roberson, Anthony Morrow and Perry Jones have all been battling injuries as well.

The Thunder compete in an extremely tough Western Conference with elite teams like the San Antonio Spurs, Golden State Warriors, Dallas Mavericks and many others. With so many injuries, the Thunder may want to consider adding more depth to the roster.

One option for the Thunder could be Los Angeles Lakers point guard Jeremy Lin. Lin only has one year remaining on his contract, and the Lakers don't appear to be going anywhere this year even though they are healthy and Kobe Bryant is leading the NBA in scoring. The Lakers have the worst record in the Western Conference at 1-8, and trading away Lin for value may just be the best option at this point.

As for Thunder, Westbrook's fractured hand is still healing, and there's no definite date for his return. Even though Lin is still scheduled to make $14.9 million this season, this is the last year of his contract. The Thunder can basically use Lin as a "rental player" as he becomes an unrestricted free agent after this season. Lin probably isn't the long term solution in Oklahoma City, but for this season, the Thunder may want to explore this option.

Westbrook is the best scoring point guard in the league, but has had many injuries in his career. Even when he comes back, his health isn't guaranteed for the remainder of the season. Last season Westbrook had knee surgery and only played 46 games.

Reggie Jackson has done a good job offensively filling in for Westbrook this year. Jackson not only leads the Thunder in assists, but he is their leading scorer as well with 22.4 points per game. With Durant and Westbrook both out, Lin and Jackson could be a terrific back-court. Lin could even provide backup minutes to an extremely injury plagued roster.

Adding Lin could help make up for some of Jackson's defensive flaws and allow Jackson to get more rest.

At 3-7, the Thunder have to compete in a tough division with the Portland Trailblazers leading the way. The Thunder have yet to even win two consecutive games this season. With their two best players out with bone fractures, trading for Lin may be worth the one year risk.
