Russell Westbrook apparently is one heck of a fast healer. The Oklahoma City Thunder will play tonight against the Phoenix Suns at home despite being ahead of schedule by nearly a month. Russell will be a welcomed addition for the Thunder who now has their second banana back.
Westbrook passed all required physicals and rehab benchmarks to be cleared to play by doctors and other team officials. Russell, who had surgery in October to repair torn cartilage in his knee, will address the media prior to making his season debut in tonight’s game.
R. Westbrook has passed all medical/physical benchmarks in rehab. Russ, his reps, physicians & medical team agree. He will play tonight.
