But the most significant aspect of the move is its implications for injured stars Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant. There is a growing belief that one or both could rejoin the lineup soon, perhaps as early as Friday against New York. They returned to practice this week and are scheduled to have their respective injuries evaluated over the Thanksgiving holiday. Oklahoman

In a surprise move, the Thunder has waived point guard Sebastian Telfair. The team announced the news Wednesday night, hours after its home win over Utah. Telfair came into the season projected to be the Thunder’s third string point guard but ended up playing a prominent role for a team that has been decimated by injuries in the season’s first month.

Telfair, who was attempting to resurrect his NBA career after competing in China last season, posted a farewell message to his Instagram account after the Thunder announced the move. “It’s been a honor and thanks to all the okc fans that showed me love while I was here,” Telfair wrote. “Good luck to all my teammates as they work for a ring! All love #BA #headup” Oklahoman

As expected, Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant participated in practice Saturday, joining their Thunder teammates in select portions of non-contact drills. Both are said to be progressing from their respective injuries on schedule. “They looked good,” said Thunder coach Scott Brooks. “They’ve been with the group the whole time, but (Saturday) was the first day they’ve actually participated in some of the drills. It wasn’t the entire practice.” Oklahoman
