Russell Westbrook will miss the remainder of the playoffs after undergoing surgery to repair a torn lateral meniscus, the Oklahoma City Thunder announced in a press release. Westbrook will begin his rehab immediately and the team will determine a timetable for his return during the offseason, the team said.
Westbrook suffered the injury on Wednesday during Game 3 of the Thunder’s first-round playoff series against the Houston Rockets, after a steal attempt by Rockets guard Patrick Beverley.
