Russell Westbrook (knee) will not play on Friday vs. the Clippers.
Westy was going pretty hard during pre-game workouts and there were no reports of any knee pain so hopefully he’s close to a return. The Thunder will need him doing the heavy lifting all season long so they’re not trying to rush him back before he’s ready. ESPN’s Royce Young added that there’s a chance Westbrook suits up for Sunday’s game vs. the Kings. Dennis Schroder makes for a good stream as long as Russell is watching from the bench, although his DFS price is already on the rise on certain sites.
