"Obviously he's not fully cleared for everything. He's doing certain things. Like I said, he's been in controlled situations that the medical staff has allowed him to do. Then hopefully with the way he responds physically after going through a workout, he'll be able to add a little bit more and a little bit more. So he's doing a little bit more each day," said Donovan. 

He did not say whether or not Westbrook will be in a position to play come Opening Night. 

"He's certainly moving in the right direction, and I think he's worked really really hard at his rehab to try and get himself back," said Donovan.
