OKLAHOMA CITY - One week after surgery on his broken right hand, Russell Westbrook is upbeat about his recovery and trying to help his injury-riddled team find a way to survive without current NBA MVP Kevin Durant and himself on the court. Paul Worrilow Jersey .Westbrook met with the media for the first time since suffering a small fracture early in the Thunders October 30th loss to the L.A. Clippers. He underwent surgery the following day, and is expected to miss 4-to-6 weeks.For the three-time NBA All-Star, it was the fourth surgery in less than two years and another frustrating moment for one of the leagues most mercurial competitors.I missed a shot and tried to come back up and get a rebound and I hit my hand on Perks (teammate Kendrick Perkins) elbow. I knew I hurt something, I thought I dislocated my finger of something. I couldnt tell until I got the ball back when I ran back down the court and couldnt dribble, said Westbrook. I was already mad once I hit my hand because I knew it wasnt gonna be good, so I was instantly upset and frustrated. Obviously, I was ready to go and ready to help my team go out and get wins, especially since we were down some guys already. It was frustrating for me, but itll be alright. Ill get back to where I was at.Already hobbled by injuries to Durant and newcomer Anthony Morrow, the injury to Westbrook wasnt the end of the misfortune. Forward Perry Jones and guards Jeremy Lamb and Reggie Jackson have also missed games, while rookie forwards Mitch McGary and Grant Jarrett have yet to begin their NBA careers due to injuries. On most nights, the team has had only eight available players.The Thunder has been competitive in five of six games, but saw their record fall to 1-5 after a 91-89 home loss to Memphis Friday night. Oklahoma City has had to employ journeymen Sebastian Telfair and Lance Thomas in the starting lineup and recently picked up another well-travelled guard in Ish Smith.Coach Scott Brooks is trying to stay positive while waiting for the return of his superstars, which will likely not come until January. Until they can get back on the court, Brooks is trying to keep Westbrook and Durant involved in encouraging the players who are trying to hold down the fort.He and Kevin are incredible encouragers during games. They are cheering every possession and they get on guys during huddles when needed, Brooks said. Theyre involved, theyre engaged, they want to make an impact while theyre not playing and thats good to see.For his part, Westbrook is happy to play that part while he waits to return to the court.Just try to find a way that we can help guys. You dont wanna talk to nobody once you start the game because it gets annoying, Westbrook said. Youve got to find a way to get through to people even if it is off the floor, timeouts, whatever it is, just find a way to help the team out.

The Bills announced Dareus was placed on the active/non-football injury list Saturday, a day before the team holds its first practice in suburban Rochester. The Bills didnt say why he was placed on the list. Coach Doug Marrone wont be available for comment until Sunday. The 2011 first-round draft pick has already had a difficult off-season, dealing with two off-field legal matters. In early May, Dareus was arrested in his native Alabama and charged with possession of synthetic marijuana and drug paraphernalia. Four weeks later, he was allegedly racing teammate Jerry Hughes when he crashed his 2012 Jaguar into a tree near a busy intersection not far from Ralph Wilson Stadium. Dareus was charged with reckless endangerment and ticketed for several traffic violations, including drag-racing. The NFL could potentially discipline Dareus for his off-field troubles with a fine or suspension. After the crash, Dareus consulted with Marrone and decided to take two weeks off from voluntary practices. He returned for the teams three-day mandatory minicamp in mid-June but did not speak to reporters. He was last seen in Buffalo on July 1, when hhe made a brief appearance in court on his reckless driving charge. AShawn Robinson Jersey. . Dareus has been a three-year starter in Buffalo since he was drafted with the third pick out of Alabama. Hes coming off a career season in which he was credited with 71 tackles and 7 1/2 sacks and made his first Pro Bowl appearance as an injury replacement. In other moves, the Bills also placed guard J.J. Unga on the active/non-football injury list. Starting cornerback Leodis McKelvin was cleared for practice. Coming off hip surgery, McKelvin was added to the roster after being activated from the active/physically unable to perform list. The Bills also signed receiver Tori Gurley and defensive back Kamaal McIlwain. The 6-foot-4 Gurley had one catch in three games with the Cleveland Browns last season. He has spent time with several teams since breaking into the NFL in 2011 as an undrafted free agent with Green Bay. McIlwain has yet to play in an NFL game since breaking into the league in 2011. He was cut by Kansas City before the start of last season. Both players participated on a tryout basis in Buffalos mandatory minicamp last month. They fill the roster spots left open after the Bills released receiver Cordell Roberson and defensive back Darius Robinson on Friday.
