Brooks says trio will get rest if they need itThunder coach Scott Brooks said he will monitor Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook and Nenad Krstic throughout training camp after all three made it to the final day of the 2010 FIBA World Championship on Sunday for their respective countries. Brooks said he doesn't think fatigue will be an issue but considers himself "supportive” of any rest they might need. "They have a couple of weeks to recharge their batteries,” Brooks said. "But they're excited about coming back and being around their teammates. I've texted both (Durant and Westbrook) and they're looking forward to coming back. "I think it's case by case. We'll see how each of them is feeling. One thing I know is that they're not going to take advantage of the situation. But if they're feeling fatigued and need a day or two off, I'm very supportive of that. We're just going to see how they feel. They might not want any time to rest. But they're going to have some time off.” Durant and Westbrook led the USA to the gold medal. Krstic's Serbian team placed fourth. Durant led Team USA with 254 minutes, averaging 28.2 minutes over nine games. Westbrook averaged 19.4 minutes in nine games. Krstic averaged 23.6 minutes in six games. Brooks said the trio's minutes in preseason games also will be limited but not any more than usual.
