We've got some very, very good news for Thunder fans and some very, very bad news for Knicks fans: After spending the last month on the sidelines with a hand injury, Russell Westbrook is scheduled to be back in the lineup for Oklahoma City tonight. We thought that this might be a possibility for the Thunder earlier this week. But a short time ago, OKC head coach Scott Brooks confirmed that Westbrook will, in fact, be back with the Thunder when they take the floor tonight.
Unfortunately, Kevin Durant won't be joining him. It seems he's not ready to make his return just yet. But at the very least, Westbrook's return will give a big boost to the 4-12 Thunder. Welcome back, Russ.
