Injury Update – Russell Westbrook

Well the reports are out that Russell Westbrook could miss anywhere from 4-6 weeks after fracturing his hand last night in the game against the Clippers. This just adds to an almost laughable list of injured players for the OKC Thunder. A team who, in the summer, was gearing up for a run at a championship and who I thought still had that ability. Now their chances of even making the playoffs took a major hit. Reggie Jackson is still out as well as Anthony Morrow so this team will have a tough time putting the ball in the basket with their best offensive players being Serge Ibaka and Perry Jones. Yes Jones put in 32 points last night, but can he sustain it? Can he be the number one guy on an NBA team? I’m not to sure about that. I’ve said it before, this team will need to hover around .500 until Durant gets back to have a shot at the playoffs and with Westbrook out, that looks like an impossibility.
