Russell Westbrook May Be Back in Two Weeks
Oklahoma Thunder star Russell Westbrook has made significant progress in his recovery from a second surgical procedure on his knee and could return to the Thunder’s lineup within two weeks, league sources told Yahoo Sports.
The Thunder issued an original timetable of six to eight weeks from Wednesday’s opening night for Westbrook, but barring an unforeseen setback he could be back in the lineup by mid-November.
Prior to hurting his knee in April during the NBA Playoffs, Russell Westbrook had never missed a game during his five-year career.
Having posted regular season averages of 23.2 points, 7.4 assists and 5.2 rebounds Westbrook spent the summer rehabbing from a torn meniscus, and needed a second operation in early October.
