Thunder's Westbrook off crutches

The SportsXchange

Injured Oklahoma Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook is off crutches and ready to begin the next stage of his rehab from a torn meniscus.

Westbrook posted a video through his Vine social media site in which he pretends to smash a crutch over his knee and throws it a pool. He then clutches a basketball in a shooting motion, and says, "I'm back."

It's been just more than six weeks since Westbrook had his surgery. He was hurt his knee in Game 2 of the opening round of the NBA playoffs against the Houston Rockets in a collision with Patrick Beverley, and he missed the rest of the postseason.
