Oklahoma City Thunder Roster Report 2008-12-17

Oklahoma City Thunder Roster Report 2008-12-17
ROTATION: Starters -- Point guard Russell Westbrook, Shooting guard Damien Wilkins, Small forward Kevin Durant, Power forward Jeff Green, Center Johan Petro. Bench -- Guard Earl Watson, Forward Joe Smith, Guard Kyle Weaver, Center Mo Sene, Forward Nick Collison, Center Chris Wilcox, Guard Desmond Mason.


--C Chris Wilcox came back from a dislocated ring finger ahead of schedule Tuesday. Expected to be out 10-14 days, Wilcox returned only six days after suffering the injury with his middle and ring fingers on his left (non-shooting) hand taped together.

"I'm just going to play my game, I can't worry about it," Wilcox said. "If it gets hurt again, it gets hurt again. I'll just have to go off to the side. But at the same time, I've just got to go out there and play my game and just be physical."

--G Russell Westbrook suffered through his poorest performance of the season in Sunday's loss at San Antonio. The starting point guard scored just two points in 19 minutes after getting in early foul trouble.

"All players are going to have some rough spots and that was a rough spot for him," coach Scott Brooks said. "We will look at film and try to get better together with him, but it's just part of going through the ups and downs of an NBA player, whether he's a young player or a veteran player. They're going to have games that they wish would have never happened."

--C Robert Swift (back) has begun to take part in some drills during and after practice. The next step is to take part in full practices and scrimmages.

"He's making progress," Scott Brooks said. "He is raising his level of intensity, but is still day-to-day."


--F D.J. White (jaw surgery) had a benign tumor removed Oct. 13. The second phase of the surgery involved mending the jaw with bone graft taken from his hip. Recovery time is 4-6 months.

--C Robert Swift (lower back discomfort) is inactive. He's officially listed as day-to-day.
