Oklahoma City Thunder: Reggie Jackson, Kendrick Perkins back against Spurs

twitter.com Published: April 3, 2014

Prior to tonight's big game against the San Antonio Spurs, Thunder coach Scott Brooks announced that Reggie Jackson, Russell Westbrook and Kendrick Perkins would all play, and Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said that only guard Manu Ginobili would be unavailable.

Perkins (groin) had missed 17 straight games leading into tonight, and Jackson had missed the last two games with a mid-back sprain. But both participated in a majority of Wednesday's practice.

It was up in the air whether or not Westbrook would play tonight against the Spurs or Friday against Houston Rockets on the road. Westbrook has been restricted to one half of back-to-back games for the rest of the regular season.

Perkins will get the Westbrook treatment for the rest of the season in back-to-backs.
