The guy is so resilient. It’s really hard to keep him down. He just continues to come back and work. That’s incredibly impressive.

The Oklahoma City Thunder will no longer be starting training camp at full strength. Friday during media day heading in to camp, GM Sam Presti announced that reigning MVP Russell Westbrook will miss the a few days of camp after getting a PRP injection in his right knee. He followed up his statements by saying that the injury was “nothing serious.” Although PRP injections are pretty common at this point, there is still room for concern as Westbrook has had several knee surgeries over his career. The Thunder will look to make a championship run this year with the additions of Carmelo Anthony and Paul George.
