by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/13/2014) Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook said Monday that his role wouldn't change with forward Kevin Durant potentially sidelined for six-to-eight weeks due to a Jones fracture, ESPN reports.

"It's not about me. It's about our team. I can't win games by myself. I can't do anything by myself," Westbrook said Monday. "I kind of want to take the attention off me and put it more on the team. Everybody keeps asking what I'm going to do and how I'm going to change. I think it's more about our team and what we can do."

"We're not asking Russell to be a 35-point scorer," coach Scott Brooks said. "Obviously, he's going to be a scorer because he can, and he does that at a high level. There will be games he might have 20, there will be games he'll have 30, but there will also be some games where he has 15. He just has to continue to lead like he has been and that's good enough. Everybody has to step up. It's not one guy. You're not going to replace Kevin with one guy. It's the team getting better as a group is what I'm looking to replace him with."

Westbrook missed 36 games last season while recovering from a torn meniscus, and now the Thunder are set to begin this season without their top scorer due to Durant's foot injury.
