During the course of Game 2 of their first round Western Conference playoff series, Thunder guard Russell Westbrook & Rockets backup guard Patrick Beverley got tangled up to where the two bumped knees. Westbrook was agitated and clearly in pain. The Thunder might have won the game but their hopes of repeating as Western Conference champions took a serious blow this afternoon as it’s been revealed Westbrook suffered a torn lateral meniscus in his right knee that will require surgery. Watch the video of the play below.

It’s unclear if Westbrook will return for the series against the Rockets which the Thunder lead 2-1 or return for the playoffs for that matter. In his five NBA seasons, Westbrook has yet to miss a game in both the regular or postseason and dating back to his childhood, he had never missed a game of organized basketball until now.
