At least the #Nets beat the Durant/Westbrook-less Thunder by two thanks to an open miss from 3 by Jackson last night.

Jeff Caplan

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

Mike Mazzeo

#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.

Anthony Slater

Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook getting a little healthier each day. Video via @DylanBuckingham from shootaround: vine.co/v/OJPaFwdQT75

Arash Markazi

Clippers struggled to beat OKC without Durant and Westbrook and lost to the Bulls without Rose and Gasol.

Royce Young

Lots asking: Durant and Westbrook are both set to be re-evaluated in about a week. Doesn't mean they'll return then, but conceivably could.

Royce Young

Another thing: 85.7 percent of Jackson's baskets have been unassisted this season. Last season, Russell Westbrook was at 67.3 percent.

Kevin Pelton

I'm intrigued to see how Nick Collison, 3-point shooter works when he's playing with Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook.

Tony Jones

At shootaround today, Quin Snyder talked about not taking Thunder without KD/Westbrook lightly. This is his worst fear

Steve Luhm

Brooks believes the experience players are getting without injured Durant/Westbrook will make OKC better "when we get whole again."

Gary Lee

Russell Westbrook playing hard to get, I see.

Jimmy Spencer

Might not be too much longer.. RT @Darnell Mayberry: Durant and Westbrook getting in a workout after shoot-around. vine.co/v/OJW9EO1JWUd

Jimmy Spencer

The fan who asked @Russell Westbrook to come to Los Angeles —> RT @j8rod13: @Jimmy Spencer that's me I got the witnesses and ticket to prove it

Arash Markazi

Clippers basically got the Thunder without Durant & Westbrook and the Bulls without Rose & Gasol. Not quite the litmus tests we expected.

Steve Luhm

According Coach Quin Snyder, Jazz must be ready for shorthanded OKC (no Durant, Westbrook): "There are a lot of good players out there."

Chris Sheridan

Russell Westbrook doesn't take the bait from a Lakers fan about going to LA, who can blame him. By @BrettNBA Story: wp.me/p1Ogzi-lXc.

Iñako Diaz-Guerra

La cómica discusión entre Westbrook y un fan de los Lakers: "¡Vete de aquí y vuelve a L.A.!" dozz.es/lbbqr http://t.co/kTiRTmx054

Ben Golliver

I ask again: Could LeBron James, Anthony Davis & (healthy) Russell Westbrook beat the Lakers 3-on-5 in otherwise standard 48-minute game?

Kurt Helin

Russell Westbrook shakes off Lakers’ fan’s recruiting efforts dlvr.it/7XqCCs

Baxter Holmes

Ahem RT @Darnell Mayberry Fan: "You can shoot all you want. Come to LA. We got rings." Westbrook: "Get yo ass out of here & go back to L.A."

Darnell Mayberry

Fan: "You can shoot all you want. Come to L.A. We got rings." Westbrook: "Get yo ass out of here and go back to L.A."

Darnell Mayberry

Lakers fan six rows behind the scorer's table screams at Westbrook: "Russ, come to L.A.!!" Russ starts shaking his head no.

Darnell Mayberry

Both are scheduled to be reevaluated in two weeks. RT @RamseyRivera @Darnell Mayberry what's the time table with durant and Westbrook?

Darnell Mayberry

I never saw Jennings talk nearly this much whenever Westbrook was on the court. Even going back to Milwaukee. Never looked confident.

Royce Young

Currently watching: Russell Westbrook singing along to Shake It Off during this timeout.

Rick Mahorn

Can't take this team lightly!! Dominate in the paint. No Westbrook or KD but this team plays HARD

Jerry Zgoda

A tidbit re: Zach: Wolves have been showing him tape of CP3 & Westbrook to show him how to push ball, probe, pull ball back out if necessary

Royce Young

Scott Brooks says he's already thinking about a lineup of Westbrook, Durant, Collison, Ibaka and Adams, using the zone.

Dan McCarney

Spurs play OKC at 1:30 that day. Keeping fingers crossed Durant and/or Westbrook might be back.

Royce Young

Russell Westbrook has been given the NBA Cares Community Assist Award for October for his work with child literacy in Oklahoma City.
