Thunder G Westbrook to return vs. Knicks

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) The Thunder say point guard Russell Westbrook will return to action Friday night against the New York Knicks.

The three-time All-Star broke a bone in his right hand against Portland in the second game of the season, and he hasn't played since. Westbrook has been practicing and taking contact on the court. He was reevaluated this week and finally was cleared to play. He will start and Reggie Jackson will return to his backup role.

Westbrook was expected to pick up the slack after MVP Kevin Durant broke a bone in his right foot before the season began. Instead, the stars spent about a month together wearing suits on the bench. Without them, the Thunder won just four of their first 16 games.

Johnson shines as Lions beat Bears 34-17

DETROIT (AP) After a week of questions about his limited production of late, Calvin Johnson lifted Detroit's offense with an emphatic reminder that he's still one of the game's most dynamic players.

Johnson caught 11 passes for 146 yards with a pair of first-half touchdowns, and the Lions boosted their postseason hopes with a 34-17 victory over the Chicago Bears on Thursday. Johnson had been held under 60 yards in two of three games since returning from an ankle injury, and there were rumblings that the 29-year-old receiver was slowing down, but he quieted a lot of those concerns with perhaps his best game of the season. (MORE)
