Durant, Westbrook could return early next week
The Oklahoma City Thunder’s two best players are close to making their debut for the season. Kevin Durant (foot) and Russell Westbrook (hand) are increasing the activity in their individual work outs and preparing to be back in full contact practices.
Via The Oklahoman:
“Probably not any of the contact stuff,” Brooks said. “(But) they will go through some of our practice and we’ll go from there.”
The two seem to be healing at an accelerated rate and a return by the end of next week – particularly for Westbrook – isn’t out of the question.
Oklahoma City plays Golden State on Sunday. Neither are expected to return for that game. The Thunder are off to a 3-11 start without Durant and Westbrook.
