Russell Westbrook still hurt, but partially involved in Thunder practice already
Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook participated in at least a portion of practice on Monday, The Oklahoman reports. Westbrook took part in on-court drills for the first time since he underwent arthroscopic surgery earlier in the month.
"There were bits and pieces where Russell participated in practice, so that was good," coach Scott Brooks said. "It was good to get everybody out there, working together."
Westbrook apparently amped things up in Monday's practice. The Thunder are expected to remain cautious on the point guard's recovery, so his timetable is unlikely to be sped up. That said, it appears he is on the right track for a quick return.
