The Oklahoma City Thunder currently have no timetable set for the return of point guard Russell Westbrook, but according to general manager Sam Presti, they do feel he’ll be healthy enough to partake in some aspects of training camp.

Per the Oklahoman:

Westbrook has not yet been cleared to resume full basketball activities, and neither him nor team officials are providing a timetable for when that final obstacle will be overcome.

“We expect him to take part in parts of camp and work his way through different parts until he’s ultimately cleared for unrestricted activity,” Thunder general manager Sam Presti said. “But it’s all going to be contingent upon how his body reacts to the additional load that he’ll be carrying.”

Despite the lack of a timetable, it’s still expected that Westbrook will be ready for opening night. Of course, the lack of time on the court during the Summer and training camp could see him get off to a slow start, so how effective he’ll be, especially initially remains to be seen.
