    Westbrook injured his quad at August 4, Blazers game
    Then he injured again at August 11, Spurs game
    Recurring Quad injury takes longer to heal

    IMO
    Rockets are last year Warriors conference finals without Durant and Iguodala
    Thunder are last year conference finals Blazers

    Without Westbrook
    Gordon is Eastbrook
    Tucker is Northbrook
    Covington is Southbrook
    Then Harden is Centerbrook

    He should sit out only the games where BiGbUm posts an intelligent thread or post.

    Wow, without knowing how we fair without him? I'd say sit two games and back in the 3rd game, but that's assuming we're in a battle. If we're up 2-0 I keep him on the bench.

    (Edit: I block that douche that started this thread. Now I feel slightly gullible for answering. Emphasis on slightly.)

    Where’s the “when he is healthy enough to play effectively” option?

    Smart by the OP to not include this option, because I have a sneaking suspicion the organisation won't give him that chance anyway.

    do not play, wait till 2nd round.
    if we lose, we can use Russ's injury for excuse.
    if we win, we make haters look bad beating OKC without Russ.

    Game by game decision. Every game we win extends how long he sits out.

    If we go down 0-2 he needs to play game 3
