After falling to the ground, Westbrook attempted to get up and walk to the bench. He appeared to be in a lot of pain as he proceeded to hobble to a seat. He eventually tried to walk under his own power to the locker room but had to be helped by two Thunder trainers.
As of right now, Westbrook’s status is unknown.
Westbrook left the game with 17 points, seven rebounds and nine assists.
UPDATE (9:10 p.m.)
