• Russell Westbrook
    G, Oklahoma City Thunder

    Thunder coach Billy Donavan said the team has prepared both having and not having Russell Westbrook as they are still unsure if he will play in Tuesday's opener.

    Donavan also said Westbrook has been doing more every day, but still needs to be evaluated after workouts. We still have not heard anything about Westbrook being cleared for contact, which is not a good sign one day before the game. If there was a player who would play the same day he was cleared for contact, it'd be Russ, but the Thunder have no reason to push him for the first game of the season. Either way Dennis Schroder should see extended run in what projects to be a high scoring game against the Warriors.
