Thunder star Russell Westbrook left Monday night’s Pelicans and Thunder game in the third quarter after badly rolling his ankle. The Oklahoma City star was in obvious pain before limping to the locker room.
The extent of Westbrook’s injury isn’t known, but it’s safe to say he’ll miss a few games as his ankle heals. The Thunder beat the Pelicans 122-116 for their fifth straight win.
After a 0-4 start the Thunder seemed to have figured things out. Fans are hoping Westbrook doesn’t miss too much time and the team doesn’t take a step back while he’s out.
