Hornets' Jeff Taylor not appealing suspension
(2:37 pm ET) Hornets forward Jeff Taylor told the media Monday that he will not be appealing his 24-game suspension.

Reporters said that he accepted full responsibility for his actions and accepts the punishment.

"My actions were wrong and I don't care to appeal a decision that was based off my actions being wrong," Taylor said, per the Associated Press. "So I respect the league's decision on the suspension and I will take all of the necessary steps to make sure nothing like that ever happens again."

Thunder guard Russell Westbrook could be back Friday
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2:32 pm ET) Thunder coach Scott Brooks said guard Russell Westbrook, who has been out since late October because of a fractured right hand, participated in "most" of the team's practice Monday, including contact drills, according to The Oklahoman

Brooks would not rule out Westbrook returning to the lineup Friday against the Knicks. However, he added, "We'll make that decision later on."

Because the Thunder had to use the 10-day hardship because of myriad injuries, Westbrook isn't eligible to return Wednesday against the Jazz. The hardship timeframe expires Thursday.

Westbrook was injured in the second game of the season Oct. 30 at the Clippers.


Wizards forward Otto Porter returns to practice Monday
(2:28 pm ET) Wizards forward Otto Porter was able to return to practice Monday, but is being listed as  questionable for Tuesday against the Hawks.

Thunder F Kevin Durant takes part in 'most' of Monday practice
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(2:27 pm ET) Thunder small forward Kevin Durant participated in "most" of Oklahoma City's practice on Monday, which included contact drills, reports the Oklahoman. Durant has made some progress in his recovery from foot surgery and could be back in the starting lineup as early as the end of the week.

The Thunder will play the Jazz on Wednesday, followed by the Knicks on Friday.

Because the Thunder applied for a 10-day hardship waiver, Durant won't be eligible to play on Wednesday even if he's healthy. The hardship ends on Thursday, which could set up for a Friday return, if he's fully recovered.
