NBA.com staff report

Ruled out for tonight's game with the Clippers, Thunder All-Star Russell Westbrook could return to action Sunday (Monday, PHL time) against the Kings, ESPN reported on Friday (Saturday, PHL time).

Westbrook has been sidelined since Sept. 12 after an arthroscopic procedure to treat stiffness and inflammation in his right knee.

Westbrook averaged 25.4 points, 10.3 assists and 10.1 rebounds last season, his second straight with double-figures in all three categories. He's been extremely durable during his career, playing at least 80 games in seven of his nine NBA seasons, and all 66 in the shortened 2011-12 campaign.
