According to various media reports the Oklahoma City Thunder will start their playoff run at home on Saturday, April 19.

It is still yet to be determined who the Thunder will take on or what time their first playoff game will tip off.

Oklahoma City can lock up the second seed in the NBA’s Western Conference with a win versus the Detroit Pistons in their regular season finale or if the Los Angeles Clippers lose.

If the Thunder do lock up the two seed, they will play the winner of Wednesday’s, April 16, Dallas Mavericks-Memphis Grizzlies game.

Thunder head coach Scott Brooks also told reporters that Russell Westbrook’s injury restrictions from the regular season will be lifted for the playoffs.
