  • Lakers? Knicks? Durant will probably stay at Warriors – Nash

Oklahoma City Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook has been ruled out for the team's season opener against the Warriors on Tuesday, The Athletic's Shams Charania reported. He and Thunder superstar Russell Westbrook, in particular, have had their share of hostile, though, harmless, moments on and off the court ever since Durant left Oklahoma City to chase National Basketball Association championships in the Bay Area. Last week, coach Billy Donovan told reporters that Westbrook was "progressing" but had not yet been cleared for full-contact practice.

Thunder center Steven Adams is questionable with back stiffness, and a determination on his availability will be made closer to tipoff.

Without Westbrook, Dennis Schroder is expected to start at point guard. Donovan indicated Adams will be a game-time decision against Golden State.
