Russell Westbrook arrived in Washington today and is scheduled to make his practice debut with the Washington Wizards on Saturday, according to Marc Stein of The New York Times.

The Wizards held their first group practice today, as they were among the teams that had their players undergo coronavirus testing early to get a Dec. 4 start date for their first practice instead of waiting for Dec. 6.

The 32-year-old star point guard will wear No. 4 with the Wizards, a number he wore back in high school.
