OKC Thunder Confirm Westbrook's Return

Posted: Updated:
The Oklahoma City Thunder have confirmed that All-Star point guard Russell Westbrook will return from a knee injury tonight against the Miami Heat. 

The following statement was issued today by Oklahoma City Thunder Executive Vice President and General Manager Sam Presti:

“We are all very excited to have Russell back. He has worked extremely hard throughout his rehabilitation, and his addition will allow us to build on the progress we have made in his absence. As Russell integrates back into the team we are going to manage the transition by building his minutes over time and will evaluate his availability in back-to-back situations. These steps are an effort to control the areas of his return to play where feasible, given the reduced practice and conditioning time during the regular season. Our goal is to create the best foundation for Russell and the team as we head into the postseason.”

Westbrook has been out since December 27th, when he underwent his third knee surgery since April.
