    Well considering we all thought maybe he would miss game 1 only.. or game 1-2. This is news worthy.. hoping he only misses 2 games

    Westbrook expected to miss first 2-3 games of playoffs minimum.

    Ummm ... so "start of the playoffs" means out the entire first round? How did you get there?

    I'd assume if the ROX are handling business comfortably that Russ wont be needed. If things take a bad turn after a loss or two then he will suit up no matter what.

    Does anyone actually expect Westbrook back on the earlier side of the estimate near 100%?

    Please lock this bs up. Not only is it misleading, but there is already an entire thread o his injury. A new one was not required.

    SORRY DONT KILL ME

    just thought it was necessary as he officially is listed as out and i'm just taking this from the article :

    "the expectation is that he will be out for the first few games of next week’s playoff series and possibly longer, a person with knowledge of the team’s thinking said on Thursday."

    If he misses more than two games we are done. With Eric Gordon dragging us down it’s way too much to ask of James. Thunder easily have more talent if we don’t have Russ and Ego shooting 20% consistently

    Gordon has to play to his potential. He has played well in some playoff games but need him to be consistent to play against the Thunder. Harden is going to average 32 points regardless

    He has to rest this thing or it will re-occur. No surprise here. Hopefully he is right in 10 days. James can handle CP3 and company for a few games.

    If he’s not right he shouldn’t play

    we should still win in the first round
    Never been worried about the first round with Harden
