Durant: Westbrook will be ready

The SportsXchange

Oklahoma City Thunder star Kevin Durant said he expects injured teammate Russell Westbrook to be ready for the start of the regular season, according to Hoops Hype.

Durant made the comment during his Nike tour of Europe in Barcelona when he was asked about Westbrook's recovery from knee surgery.

Westbrook tore the meniscus in his right knee during the first round of the playoffs in April. Recovery time is typically four to six months.

Westbrook, a three time All-Star, averaged 23.2 points, 7.4 assists, a career-high 5.2 rebounds and 1.77 steals in the regular season.
