Russell Westbrook undergoes arthroscopic surgery, out at least a month

Russell Westbrook

Oklahoma City Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook’s preseason is in doubt after undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery.

The Thunder announced Wednesday that Westbrook underwent the procedure after experiencing some stiffness in his right knee, and he will be re-evaluated in four weeks.

Westbrook had been working very hard on one aspect of his game this offseason, but it will be some time before he gets to put it into practice. Oklahoma City opens its season on October 16 at Golden State, so he could be in a race against time to be healthy for the opener.
