Kevin Durant still out; Russell Westbrook could return Wednesday for Thunder

Kevin Durant will be out at least another week for the Oklahoma City Thunder, but Russell Westbrook could return today against the Philadelphia 76ers. Thunder coach Scott Brooks made the announcements Tuesday at practice. Durant had surgery on Feb. 21 to replace a screw from an operation for a broken bone in his right foot in October. Brooks says Durant is “trending well,” and will be re-evaluated soon. Westbrook, the All-Star Game MVP, was hurt Friday in Portland when the knee of teammate Andre Roberson hit Westbrook’s face. Westbrook had surgery to repair a fracture to his cheek on Sunday. He’ll wear a mask when he returns. – AP
