Blog Photo - Russell Westbrook to return from injury tonightComing into the new season, it was believed that Russell Westbrook would miss up to a quarter of the year after having knee surgery a month ago.

Well, a possible 21 games missed has turned into two. Westbrook is expected to make his season debut tonight against the Suns. This is the 3rd game of Oklahoma City's season and their home opener. They won their season opener at Utah, and lost their second game against Minnesota.

It remains to be seen how Westbrook will look just a month after arthroscopic surgery. Presumably he will need some time to play himself back into what he's usually capable. A likely tanking (despite a 2-0 start) Suns team though is a good opponent to return to game action.

The game starts at 7:00 and can be seen on NBATV.
