Russell Westbrook is coming back for the Oklahoma City Thunder's big game against the Miami Heat. Prior to the all star game in an exclusive interview, Kevin Durant told Bill Simmons that Westbrook will definitely be back the Thursday after the all star game.

Russell Westbrook has missed the last 27 games due to and injured knee and has been a huge loss to his team.

The last game Westbrook was a part of was on Christmas day, where he recorded a triple double in under thirty minutes.

The young guard won't be able to return and provide an impact as he did on Christmas day, but it'd be great for the fans and the team to know Russell's back on the court.

Kevin Durant has done a great job in carrying the team in Westbrooks' absence but as the dynamic duo are reunited, who knows what the future holds.
