Cameron Payne (foot) expected to play 20 minutes on Saturday against the Nuggets.
Payne will make his season debut and look to take over the backup point guard duties. This may mean a slight hit for Victor Oladipo who has been handling the ball more when Westbrook is off the court. Last season Payne averaged 5.0 points, 1.5 boards, 1.9 assists on 41 percent from the field. The young guard should be left on waiver wires.
