MRI Shows Russell Westbrook Knee Injury Will be Fine
After leaving Friday’s double-overtime game against the Toronto Raptors with a knee injury, Russell Westbrook’s MRI diagnosis confirmed on Saturday that he will be fine.
After an MRI and clinical exam, it was determined that no issues of concern resulted from Westbrook’s knee-to-knee contact with Raptors guard Kyle Lowry last night.
Moving forward, the Thunder will continue to monitor Westbrook’s minutes and rest him on one night of its back-to-backs. OKC plays Denver at home on Monday and the Mavericks in Dallas on Tuesday. Westbrook is expected to play in one of those games and rest in the other.
