Oklahoma City Thunder Roster Report 2009-04-11

Oklahoma City Thunder Roster Report 2009-04-11
ROTATION: Starters -- Point guard Russell Westbrook, Shooting guard Thabo Sefolosha, Small forward Kevin Durant, Power forward Jeff Green, Center Nenad Krstic. Bench -- Guard Earl Watson, Guard Chucky Atkins, Forward D.J. White, Forward Nick Collison, Forward Malik Rose, Guard Kyle Weaver, Guard Shaun Livingston.


--G Shaun Livingston is proving, to his coach at least, that he does belong in the NBA again. The backup point guard averaged 7.5 points, 3.5 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 22.3 minutes in his first four games with the Thunder.

"He knows now that he can play an NBA game," Scott Brooks said. "When you're in the D-League, you're still doubting yourself. Most professional guys aren't going to admit that.

"Shaun is going to get better. Physically, he tells me that he's feeling great. I think with any guy that is coming off injury -- and he's been out for over two years -- it's the rust that has to be taken off of his game."

--F Kevin Durant has refused to sit, despite an injured hip and the season coming down to a few otherwise meaningless games. The team's leading scorer had 20 points Friday night against Charlotte.

"There are so many reasons why I love Kevin Durant," Scott Brooks said. "One is that he is a tough kid. There are no excuses in his game. I know he has a sore hip. He is going to fight through everything."

--G Russell Westbrook improvement over the course of his rookie season isn't confined to one area. However, Scott Brooks said Westbrook's floor leadership has shown the greatest progress.

"If I have to pick one spot, I think it's his ability to run the team has improved," Brooks said. "And I think it has improved throughout each month of the season."


--G Desmond Mason (knee surgery) is missing the rest of the season. He is expected to make a full recovery.

--F Malik Rose (strained left Achilles) was inactive.
