REPORT: Thunder’s Russell Westbrook to play vs. Kings after missing six-straight games

Russell Westbrook, Thunder

The Oklahoma City Thunder take on the Sacramento Kings Monday night, and star point guard Russell Westbrook will play after missing the previous six games with an ankle injury.

Westbrook suffered a sprained left ankle against the New Orleans Pelicans on Nov. 5.

In the seven games he has played in this season, Russell Westbrook is averaging 24.1 points, 8.3 rebounds and 8.9 assists. The 2017 league MVP is shooting 48.9 percent from the field, 10.0 percent from beyond the arc and 63.5 percent from the free-throw line.

The Thunder enter Monday with a record of 10-5. They are 10-1 in their last 11 games and have been playing great on both ends of the floor. Paul George is averaging 26.2 points, 9.5 rebounds and 4.5 assists since Westbrook went down with the ankle injury.
