What Russell Westbrook Injury Means to OKC Thunder

[USA Today]

Russell Westbrook

The path to an NBA title just got a whole lot harder for the Oklahoma City Thunder — again.

More than five months after point guard Russell Westbrook tore the meniscus in his right knee at the start of the Thunder’s playoff run, he had arthroscopic surgery on the same knee Tuesday morning and is expected to miss the first four to six weeks of the regular season that starts Oct. 30.

While Westbrook was not experiencing pain in the knee, swelling persisted and led to a trip to California on Monday to have the knee examined. As Thunder general manager Sam Presti detailed on a conference call with reporters, the medical group that recommended the latest procedure was different from the one from Vail, Colo., that did the initial surgery on Westbrook’s meniscus.
