OKC Thunder: No timetable for Russell Westbrook's return to Rockets

Russell Westbrook cheered from the bench Tuesday night as the Rockets ran past his old team, but there's still no indication of when, or if, Westbrook will suit up against the Thunder. 

"I have no idea," Rockets coach Mike D'Antoni said Wednesday. "I don't know how long it's gonna take. It's gonna take a little bit, but he's working hard, he's feeling better every day and the images are looking better."

Westbrook missed Game 1 with a right quad strain, and he has yet to return to practice. 

"Once he gets on the court he'll be able to hone in on how many days," D'Antoni said. 

The Thunder and Rockets will tip-off at 2:30 p.m. Thursday in Game 2.
