OKLAHOMA CITY —

Oklahoma City Thunder coach Scott Brooks says he expects Russell Westbrook to be fine for Game 2 of the NBA Finals on Thursday night, even though the All-Star point guard had his left thumb wrapped again at the team's morning shootaround.

Westbrook was taking one-handed shots with his right hand after reporters were allowed in to see the end of the session. He then pulled the wrap back and tried a couple with both hands.

Westbrook has been dealing with the injury since the Western Conference finals but did not wear any sort of wrap during Oklahoma City's Game 1 victory on Tuesday night or during practice on Wednesday.

Brooks says "obviously there's a little pain but nothing to prevent him from playing the way he can play."
