Report: OKC's Russell Westbrook could return within two weeks
Russell Westbrook is reportedly ahead of schedule and could return to the floor within two weeks.
The Thunder could be getting an early Christmas present.
Westbrook had an original timetable of 4-6 weeks starting from the beginning of the regular season, but has been progressing well and recently returned to the practice floor, at least partially.
Backcourt mate Reggie Jackson said recently Westbrook has looked as explosive as ever, and hasn't shown any lingering effects from his meniscus surgery last April.
"Oh, man. Russell today..." Jackson said last week. "It's actually funny. My brother and his brother talk a little before games. His brother told mine that Russell's probably bouncing better than ever. I had to see it to believe it. One of the dunks (today), he went up and looked like the old Russell, plus some, head at the rim. We'll be happy when he gets back fully healthy, but it's good to see him with a smile on his face, being about the team, bouncing back and happy to be back on the court."
Westbrook, 24, averaged 23.2 points, 7.4 assists and 5.2 rebounds last season.
