OKC star Russell Westbrook may miss regular season opener.

Westbrook is still recovering from the arthroscopic surgery he had in September and has not been cleared yet by the doctors to resume full-time basketball activities.

Per ESPN, “Every day for him, he feels better and better,” said Donovan, whose team will visit the Golden State Warriors next Tuesday. “I don’t want to say [if he’ll be ready]. I know you guys want to know that, but that’s too far out and there will be a lot of things that will go into that decision.

“There’s certain things he’ll have to go through to get himself fully cleared to play, but he’s certainly moving in the right direction and he’s worked really hard at his rehab to get himself back.”
