Westbrook out four weeks after surgery
    2018-09-14  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

FORMER MVP point guard Russell Westbrook underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right knee Wednesday, a procedure that will keep him on the shelf for at least the next four weeks, and which could knock him out for Oklahoma City’s preseason slate — and perhaps longer.

“The Thunder, Westbrook and his representation determined that after he experienced inflammation in his knee this past weekend that the best course of action was the proactive procedure, performed by Dr. Neal ElAttrache with Thunder medical personnel present at the Kerlan-Jobe Orthopaedic Clinic in Los Angeles,” the team announced in a Wednesday statement.

He’ll be re-evaluated in a month, and next steps will be determined from there; if things don’t check out 100 percent in four weeks’ time, it’s possible Westbrook could miss the Thunder’s Oct. 16 opener against the Golden State Warriors. As noted by Jeff Stotts of injury-focused website In Street Clothes, this marks the fourth surgery for Westbrook’s right knee.

He’s missed just five games in the last three seasons despite his electric and relentlessly physical style of play, marking himself as one of the sport’s most reliable commodities. Westbrook did have a platelet-rich plasma injection in his left knee before the start of last season, but started the season without skipping a beat on his way to averaging a triple-double for the second straight year.(SD-Agencies)
