Kevin Durant Confirms Russell Westbrook is Expected to Start Season

Oklahoma City Thunder v Memphis Grizzlies - Game Six

Russell Westbrook tore his meniscus during the first round of the playoffs against Houston. The injury required surgery and Westbrook has been rehabbing  hard to get back on the court.

There hasn’t been an exact timeline on Westbrook’s return but budding superstar Kevin Durant apparently has the inside information. During his Nike promotional tour in Europe, Durant was asked about Westbrook’s return.

Prior to this injury, Westbrook has played in every game since high school.
