OKLAHOMA CITY: GUARDS: RUSSELL WESTBROOK is going to likely miss the first 4-to-6 weeks of the regular season after getting another procedure done on Oct. 1 to reduce swelling on his knee. It will probably take him some time to get rid of the rust of not playing all summer . . . THABO SEFOLOSHA should play even more minutes this season with Kevin Martin gone. He has added a three-point shot to his repertoire . . . REGGIE JACKSON could end up absorbing a lot of the minutes that went to James Harden two years ago and Martin last season. But he's nowhere near the offensive threat . . . JEREMY LAMB will push Jackson for that sixth-man role. He's dominated against lesser competition . . . DEREK FISHER will get minutes as a player/coach. FORWARDS: KEVIN DURANT may have to take on an even bigger role in the regular season as the Thunder try to replace Kevin Martin's offensive production. Either way, he's the MVP among the league's non-LeBrons . . . SERGE IBAKA has had his postseason issues and still struggles defensively outside of rim protection, but he has added value with his mid-range shooting . . . NICK COLLISON's biggest skill is his ability to take charges. He'll continue to log big minutes at the four and five as a glue guy . . . One of two very raw young players, PERRY JONES III and ANDRE ROBERSON, has a chance for playing time on a thin team. CENTERS: KENDRICK PERKINS was a disaster in last year's postseason, but still provides the kind of low-post muscle the Thunder look for . . . Rookie STEVEN ADAMS could take over for Perkins down the road, but he's too raw to make an impact this year . . . HASHEEM THABEET fills out the final roster spot.
PHOENIX: GUARDS: ERIC BLEDSOE immediately becomes the Suns' best player. He dominated for stretches while backing up Chris Paul . . . GORAN DRAGIC and Bledsoe will play together since they're the two best players on this team. Dragic also has enough size to match up with most twos . . . After a disappointing stint as a starter, SHANNON BROWN will return to the second unit . . . KENDALL MARSHALL doesn't fit new coach Jeff Hornacek's up-tempo style. The Suns will move him if they can . . . ARCHIE GOODWIN looked lost at times at Kentucky, but his ability to get to the line bodes well for his NBA future . . . GERALD GREEN is the kind of athlete who could make an impact on an up-tempo second unit . . . MALCOLM LEE is here in case Marshall is dealt. FORWARDS: MARKIEFF MORRIS has some upside as a skilled stretch four. He's shown flashes over his first two seasons, and playing in Honracek's up-tempo system should only help him take the next step forward . . . MARCUS MORRIS is still a man without a position, a tweener in a bad way. The Suns will try to make him into an effective second-unit guy . . . CHANNING FRYE missed all of last season with a heart ailment, and the Suns don't seem to be expecting to get anything from him this season.CENTERS: MARCIN GORTAT will keep the seat warm for Alex Len. He doesn't fit this up-and-down offense . . . ALEX LEN must become more assertive and the bust factor is high, but 7-footers with his mobility and touch don't come around often . . . MILES PLUMLEE could get minutes as a defensive specialist after making just 5-of-21 FG as a rookie.

*Thunder-Suns Preview* ======================

Oklahoma City (46-15) at Phoenix (35-25), 9:00 p.m. EDT

Russell Westbrook certainly appears to be all the way back from his knee injury, and he's got the Oklahoma City Thunder rolling along with him.

After yet another superlative performance, Westbrook looks to help the visiting Thunder to a fourth consecutive victory overall and 12th in a row over the Phoenix Suns on Thursday night.

The Thunder (46-15) dropped their first three contests after Westbrook returned from a 27-game absence, but he's found his game in the past four and sparked Oklahoma City to victories in its last three.

Westbrook had 13 points, 14 assists and 10 rebounds in a season-low 20:17 in Tuesday's 125-92 rout of Philadelphia, and he's averaged 21.0 points, 8.2 assists and 58.0 percent shooting in the previous four.

The Thunder are averaging 118.0 points during their win streak.

"He made everybody better tonight," said teammate Kevin Durant, who led the Thunder with 42 points. "He was moving the basketball, he was aggressive to the rim. I think that's why everybody got open, because of his aggressiveness. He just set the tone for us."

Westbrook's triple-double was achieved in the smallest amount of playing time needed to accomplish the feat in 59 years.

"I'm just trying to get my groove back," he said. "I'm blessed to be able to do that in such a short amount of time. It was fun."

Westbrook has led the way during Oklahoma City's 11-game run in the series, averaging 23.0 points, 7.5 assists and 49.4 percent shooting, along with a 2.41 assist-to-turnover ratio.

The Suns (35-25) are hoping to get their star point guard back on the court soon, as Eric Bledsoe recently began practicing. He's been out since Dec. 30 with a knee injury but could return in the coming weeks.

Phoenix's depth at Bledsoe's position took another hit Tuesday in a 104-96 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers, as backup Leandro Barbosa fractured his hand and could miss up to six weeks.

"Other guys will have to step up," coach Jeff Hornacek said.

Rookie center Alex Len made his first career start in place of Miles Plumlee, who's out with a right knee sprain. Len had six points and six rebounds and is expected to start again in this game with Plumlee still sidelined.

"I thought Alex did a good job early," Hornacek said. "He got after it, got some rebounds for us."

Hornacek's team has cooled down since a month-long hot streak, going 2-4 in its last six and allowing more than 110 points per game in that stretch. This game marks the end of a home-heavy stretch in which the Suns will have played 12 of 15 in Phoenix, with 15 of their last 22 after Thursday on the road.

Durant had 33 points and 10 rebounds to power the Thunder to a 103-96 home win over the Suns on Nov. 3 in the clubs' only meeting of the season. Oklahoma City has won six straight road matchups and routed Phoenix 97-69 in the most recent one Feb. 10, 2013.
