Russell Westbrook reportedly looked "as explosive as ever" during an intrasquad scrimmage, sources told Tim MacMahon and Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

The Rockets confirmed that Westbrook will return for game 5 against the Thunder. 

Westbrook has been out since August 11th due to a strained muscle in his quad.

Mike D'Antoni said that Westbrook will likely be under a minutes restriction. 

"I'm sure he'll have time restraints. We have not talked about that at all, and that won't be discussed until tomorrow. I'm planning on it, but you never know, and Russ will be hard to hold down. I'm sure he's anxious and ready to roll."
