Russell Westbrook: (Knee) Ruled Out For Playoffs

Rotowire.com
Update: Westbrook (knee) underwent surgery on his torn meniscus Saturday and is ruled out for the rest of the playoffs, CBS Sports reports.

Recommendation: Although the Lakers' Metta World Peace was luckily and surprisingly able to return to the court after two weeks following the same injury, Westbrook will not be able to participate in the rest of the playoffs. Doctors decided to repair his meniscus instead of removing it. Although this requires longer recovery time, it is usually a better long-term solution. The Thunder will have to rely on the offensive prowess of Kevin Durant to carry them in the playoffs.
