Are you sitting down, Thunder fans? We hope so. Because we have got some really, really, really bad news for you. According to the Thunder, Russell Westbrook has a torn meniscus in his right knee that will require surgery. And, as a result, he could very well be out for the rest of the 2013 NBA Playoffs.
The Thunder haven't ruled Westbrook out for the season just yet. After all, Metta World Peace experienced a similar injury and worked his way back into the Lakers lineup less than two weeks after having surgery. But, if Westbrook is done for the remainder of the playoffs, this is obviously devastating news for Oklahoma City. Best wishes on a speedy recovery, Russ.
