Nuggets-Thunder Preview

(AP) -- Already faced with having to play without reigning MVP Kevin Durant, the Oklahoma City Thunder are trying to stay positive after losing their other superstar.

With Russell Westbrook expected to miss an extended period, the Thunder hope to avoid their first 0-3 start since moving from Seattle in Saturday night's home opener against the Denver Nuggets.

Westbrook was supposed to be the focal point of the offense after Durant underwent surgery Oct. 16 to fix a bone fracture in his right foot. With the five-time All-Star likely sidelined until December, Westbrook finished with 38 points in a 106-89 season-opening loss at Portland on Wednesday.
