Thunder fans sign ‘get well soon’ card for injured Russell Westbrook before Game 5 vs. Rockets

The Oklahoma City Thunder return home Wednesday night with a chance to finish off the Houston Rockets in Game 5 of their best-of-seven first-round playoff series. When they take the court at Chesapeake Energy Arena, though, they'll do so without starting point guard Russell Westbrook, who suffered a tear to the lateral meniscus in his right knee during the Thunder's Game 2 home win and had season-ending surgery before Game 3 at the Toyota Center in Houston. This will be the first time since Nov. 28, 2008, that Westbrook is not part of the Thunder's starting lineup for a home game.

But while Westbrook won't suit up alongside running buddy Kevin Durant, he will be in the house, taking in the action from a luxury suite, according to Daily Thunder's Royce Young. And the OKC faithful aim to let him know they miss him and hope for his speedy recovery in perhaps the most adorable way possible — by signing a giant "get well soon" card for him before tipoff.

Kind of a cool counterbalance to all the not-so-nice signage being displayed outside the Peake tonight, don't you think?
