Going out last year in the first round of the Playoffs with a tear in his meniscus, Russell Westbrook's return has been pushed back.
Earlier today he underwent arthroscopic surgery to help with swelling in the knee he had surgery on. The procedure revealed that his meniscus has healed properly, but he will miss at least the first month of the NBA regular season.
Russell Westbrook will miss at least the first month of the regular season after undergoing arthroscopic surgery to alleviate swelling in his right knee Tuesday morning.
The procedure confirmed that Westbrook's meniscus has healed properly, but his return will be pushed back and he is now expected to miss the first four to six weeks of the regular season.
This is a difficult start to the season for the Thunder who had their title aspirations ruined last year by Russ' injury, and now could have a bit of a hole to start the year.
