Oklahoma City Thunder star point guard Russell Westbrook says he expects to be on crutches for at least four weeks after knee surgery that forced him to sit for the remainder of the NBA Playoffs.
“For now, I can’t travel,” Westbrook says. “When I get off crutches, we’ll sit down and see what the timetable is for me.”
Westbrook told reporters Thursday morning he’s still trying to find ways to help his team by offering input during halftime, practices, and in the film room.
“The group of guys we have, I think we have enough to get a ring,” Westbrook says.
