Russell Westbrook will make his season debut for the Oklahoma City Thunder on Sunday against the Phoenix Suns.

Westbrook has passed all medical and physical exams in his recovery from two knee surgeries.

“Russell Westbrook has gone through a methodical rehab process jointly created by our medical and performance teams and treating physicians," Sam Presti said in a statement. "The process has been instrumental in getting Russell to this point and has included various physical and medical benchmarks. The final benchmark being unrestricted basketball activity. After hitting the necessary marks, all parties, including the team, consulting physicians, Russell’s representatives, and most importantly Russell, jointly determined that returning to play was the correct next step.”

Westbrook injured his knee in the first round of last season's playoffs.

Westbrook was expected to miss at least the first four weeks of the season.
