Burke defending Westbrook, Booker could play and shootaround notes

In the preseason alone, Trey Burke has dealt with the all-around brilliance of Chris Paul and Damian Lillard. He’s had to fend off feisty veterans Ronnie Price and Steve Blake. Now comes perhaps the biggest challenge of them all: Russell Westbrook. Of course, it’s not that simple for Burke, the starting point guard for the Utah Jazz. Of course, the matchup on the marquee says Jazz vs. Thunder. But Burke plays at the deepest and most talented position in the NBA, arguably. And on Tuesday night, ...

Comparing Durant's Injury to Westbrook's 2013 Injury

How much different will the impact of this injury be, and how will it affect the team come April? If you're not living under a rock, you've probably heard by now that Kevin Durant will be sidelined for the first few weeks of the season with a Jones fracture in his right foot. It's pretty devastating news, but nothing that we haven't heard before. In the middle of last season, a season that had similarly high expectations, the Thunder had to deal with an injury to Russell Westbrook. Russ obviously brings a different presence to the team than KD does, but a lot of the issues are the same....

Erik Horne[img url=http://blog.newsok.com/dittocontent/uploads/sites/10/2014/10/Russell-Westbrook.jpg]3449301[/img] With Kevin Durant out due to injury, Russell Westbrook has become the focal point of the Oklahoma City Thunder.

With Kevin Durant set to miss the first 20+ games of the regular season but prognosis positive on his future health, we turn to what the Thunder need to do in the meantime so that they don't get buried in the hyper-competitive Western Conference.

Jusuf Nurkic, Gary Harris to make Pepsi Center debuts tonight vs. Thunder

Game two of the pre-season rolls forward, with the hated Thunder in town. On my way into the arena tonight, the Thunder team bus was rolling in, too. As I walked by the bus, the infamous Russell Westbrook was stepping out. I immediately thought of Westbrook's antics with Super Mascot Rocky and simultaneously I also thought of Westbrook's friendship with Arron Afflalo. It's fun to "hate" Westbrook as a Nuggets fan. He routinely destroys the Nuggets and his distain for the Pepsi Center crowd makes for a fun rivalry. His friendship with Afflalo, both UCLA guys, could also make for a good...
