Wilcox a game-time decision
Forward Chris Wilcox said he is ready to play tonight against the Los Angeles Clippers, five days before the earliest possible return date the team gave in its initial 10-14 day recovery timetable from a dislocated left ring finger.

"I’m just going to play my game. I can’t worry about it,” said Wilcox, who will wear a soft cast on his middle two fingers when he returns. "If it gets hurt again it gets hurt again. But I just have to keep being physical.”

Thunder coach Scott Brooks would not say whether Wilcox will be active tonight but said he looked good during the team’s light practice Monday.

"He’s still a little conservative with it, but you have to fight through the pain that you have,” Brooks said. "But he did show signs of improvement.”

Westbrook watch
Rookie guard Russell Westbrook scored a season-low two points on 1-for-3 shooting in Sunday’s loss to San Antonio, getting in early foul trouble and playing just 19 minutes.

"All players are going to have some rough spots, and that was a rough spot for him,” Brooks said.
