Westbrook's Face Fractured; Faces Surgury

Posted: Updated:
OKLAHOMA CITY -

Thunder guard Russell Westbrook underwent a successful procedure today to address a fracture to the zygomatic arch of his right cheek, Thunder Executive Vice President and General Manager Sam Presti announced.

The procedure was performed by Dr. John Joseph Rehm and Dr. Jason Hamilton with Thunder medical personnel present at the Osborne Head and Neck Institute in Los Angeles, Calif. Westbrook will miss tomorrow's game against the Los Angeles Lakers and will be re-evaluated later this week.

In 45 games this season (all starts), Westbrook is averaging 26.5 points, 8.1 assists and 6.8 rebounds in 33.0 minutes per game. Westbrook has recorded three straight triple-doubles and after last night's performance in Portland, his 31.2 points, 9.1 rebounds and 10.3 assists for the month of February made him the first player since Oscar Robertson to achieve those marks over the course of a month.
