I see why Westbrook was so upset. He’s out INDEFINITELY!!!!

Oklahoma City Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook has never missed a game in high school, college or in his five years in the NBA.  That streak has ended.

 

The three-time All-Star will undergo surgery to repair a meniscus tear in his right knee, the team announced Friday.

The injury happened in the second quarter of Game 2 on Wednesday against the Houston Rockets, presumably when PG Patrick Beverly tried to steal the ball from Westbrook after he had signaled for a timeout.  Some speculate that Beverly was playing dirty in that game; here’s a comment we received at GWS.

It was very dirty. He didn’t make a lunge for it until after the whistle. Also, look at where Beverly stomps his foot down. He locks Westbrook’s leg and then twists him around with the side of his body. That’s dirty. If it wouldn’t have been a time out, it would have definitely been a foul. Both times in this video are dirty plays by Beverly.

No timetable was announced for Westbrook’s surgery or possible return as the Thunder head into Game 3 in their first-round series.

Westbrook had the league’s longest active streak of consecutive games played (394 regular season games and all of OKC’s 45 playoff games).
