The All-Star point guard was averaging 24.1 points, 8.3 rebounds, and 8.9 assists before the injury–nearly a triple-double, unsurprisingly–but backup point guard Dennis Schroder has stepped up in his absence.

Schroder will likely get the start again tonight. He’s been averaging 20.2 points per game in the four games since Westbrook’s injury and has been instrumental in the team keeping its record alive without their star player.

That being said, here’s what the Thunder’s starting lineup could look like for tonight:
