Thunder's Westbrook and Durant back Friday? sportando.com/en/usa/nba/142…

Gary Lee

He’s a combination of Iverson and Westbrook. RT @TheeCoreyH: idk who Ronnie Price thinks he is right now, but he needs to calm down...

Royce Young

Something to keep in mind: Westbrook is about to return, meaning Smith will be the third point guard. He won't be in the regular rotation.

Darnell Mayberry

The most significant thing in all this is confirmation that Russell Westbrook, Kevin Durant and Mitch McGary are almost back.

Anthony Slater

With Durant, Westbrook and McGary returning soon, Thunder had to waive somebody. It was between Ish Smith and Telfair. OKC chose Telfair.

Gary Lee

31-year-old Ronnie Price reminds me of Allen Iverson (crossover) and Russell Westbrook (steal and dunk).

Royce Young

Reggie Jackson dropping a Westbrook-to-Durant-esque between-the-legs bounce pass in transition to Morrow for 3.

Royce Young

If it means anything (and it probably doesn't), Russell Westbrook is still using only his left hand to high-five teammates.

Demian Belmonte

Además Kevin Durant y Russell Westbrook podrían volver a las pistas a finales de esta semana, tras empezar a realizar ejercicios de contacto

Anthony Slater

Reminder: No Russell Westbrook, Kevin Durant or Mitch McGary vs Jazz tonight. Even if healthy enough, can't play because of 10-day hardship.

David Locke

Everything I read about Russell Westbrook is that he is not ruled out of Friday. Is he ruled out of Wednesday?

Chris Palmer

Put Westbrook in a class by himself. There's no one like him.

Paul Garcia

Whoa RT @sn_nba: OKC Thunder's Russell Westbrook could return as soon as Friday dlvr.it/7dSxwd

Anthony Slater

No additional update on Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook. Partially practiced today. Won't play Wednesday. Friday not out of question.

Andrew Perna

OKC has the worst winning percentage in the West, but I’m concerned about Westbrook rushing back Friday.

Because of 10-day hardship, Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook (even if healthy enough) can't play on Wednesday vs Jazz. It expires Thurs.

All I know is whenever Durant and Westbrook play, things are going to get mighty interesting.

#Nets up 90-83. Deron is carrying them against the Durant/Westbrook-less Thunder. They might just win this one.

Mike Mazzeo

#Nets down 53-49 at the half. Had eight turnovers in the second quarter. Thunder don't have Durant or Westbrook.
