Oklahoma City Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook will play tonight after missing last night's loss against the Mavericks. According to Darnell Mayberry on Twitter, Westbrook will come off the bench and Reggie Jackson will get the start.

Westbrook missed last night's game due to precautionary reasons. It was his first scratch since returning to the lineup back on February 20th. Without their star point guard, the Thunder struggled at home against the Mavericks, losing handily 109-86. Jackson started in Westbrook's place, scoring 13 points and adding three assists in 31 minutes.
