Russell Westbrook Will Be A Game-Time Decision Vs. Hawks

OKC point guard Russell Westbrook has been ruled as a "game-time decision" per Thunder head coach Scott Brooks. Who will step up if Westbrook can't go?

Russell Westbrook's sprained ankle in Thursday night's game versus the Orlando Magic has ruled the Oklahoma City Thunder point guard as a "game-time decision" per head coach Scott Brooks. Westbrook is coming off of a stellar performance just two days ago, as his 29 points, 10 assists and only two turnovers were huge in helping the Thunder defeat the Magic 105-102.

If Westbrook can't go, Royal Ivey is expected to step in and start for the Thunder. Look for Reggie Jackson, the rookie out of Boston College, to also step in and take some major minutes in case Westbrook can't go.
