DALLAS (AP) — Oklahoma City guard Russell Westbrook is in the starting lineup for the Thunder's game at the Dallas Mavericks.

Westbrook sprained his oft-injured right knee Friday in Toronto and had an MRI on Saturday.

He missed the Thunder's home game on Monday against Denver. But since returning to the lineup on Feb. 20 following knee surgery, Westbrook has rested for one game during back-to-back games.

Before Tuesday's game, Thunder coach Scott Brooks said he's restricting Westbrook's minutes as he also deals with the absences of center Kendrick Perkins (left groin strain) and swingman Thabo Sefolosha (left calf strain). Brooks said he's comfortable with about 30 minutes per game for Westbrook.
