Russell Westbrook tore his meniscus during the first round of the playoffs against Houston. The injury required surgery and Westbrook has been rehabbing hard to get back on the court.
There hasn’t been an exact timeline on Westbrook’s return but budding superstar Kevin Durant apparently has the inside information. During his Nike promotional tour in Europe, Durant was asked about Westbrook’s return.
At a Nike&Foot Locker event in Barcelona (Spain), Kevin Durant said he expects Russell Westbrook to be ready for the start of the season.
