RUSSELL WESTBROOK, OKLAHOMA CITY: Yes, the Thunder are rolling without him, but Westbrook, when healthy, is one of the most dynamic players in the NBA. Westbrook has been out since late December after having surgery on his right knee — after a triple-double on Christmas Day against the Knicks, just two days before having the procedure. He's expected to return after the All-Star break, and with Jackson's development in his absence, the Thunder might have the best 1-2 point guard in the league. Before the latest surgery, Westbrook averaged 21.3 points and 7.0 assists per game. He also averaged 6.0 rebounds — a ridiculous total for a point guard.
