Westbrook cleared to play today Vs Phoenix

OKC's Russell Westbrook has been cleared to play today against the Phoenix Suns at home.
Great news for the organization who have been missing their Star PG since he went down last season.

The Thunder beat the Jazz in their season opener before going down to the Timberwolves.

OKC Thunders Kiwi Steve Adams has been fairly impressive in his rookie campaign despite most people saying he'd need to develop in the D League for at least a season. Had 8 points and 8 boards in the loss against the T-Wolves.

Adams is still behind the play a bit sometimes, but he is looking like a can't-miss 7-footer with a decent career as a rotation center ahead of him already. He's already looking about as comfortable as Aaron Baynes out there, albeit in a less-complicated system. Both guys need to bobble less passes and loose balls and improve their finishing and footwork.

I agree Mick.
Adams has only played 2 regular season games and will improve greatly with time on court and in the NBA enviroment. It was only a few months ago that he was a "long term project that may never pay off" and destined for the DLeague.
