What does Russell Westbrook's injury mean for fantasy owners? sheridanhoops.com/2014/10/31/fan…

Arash Markazi

After struggling to beat an 8-man Thunder team without Durant and Westbrook, the Clippers are trailing the Lakers, 63-62.

Royce Young

No timetable yet for Russell Westbrook as the team considers surgery: es.pn/1pcXKFv

Darnell Mayberry

A more definitive timetable for recovery would become clear after the procedure. But surgery suggests Westbrook will be out a little longer.

Darnell Mayberry

Given the Thunder's history of taking the most cautious approach with injuries, expect Westbrook to undergo a procedure in the near future.

Darnell Mayberry

Russell Westbrook underwent further evaluation from outside consultants on his fractured hand today, and surgery is now a consideration.

How spoiled were #thunder fans before this month? Since arriving in OKC in 2008, team played 1 game without both Durant & Westbrook

Durant afuera. Westbrook afuera. El Thunder es una motocicleta con las dos gomas pinchadas. Nadie puede juzgar a Brooks, el conductor, ahora

Dwain Price

No Durant and Westbrook for a minute for OKC. Things could get tough for the #Thunder out West.

Scott Souza

#Celtics fans w/ tix for Nov. 12 game vs. OKC will get to see neither Durant nor Westbrook. But may get to see a win. #NiceConsolationPrize

Tom Haberstroh

Number of games in OKC team history without Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant: 1. That's it.

Paul Jones

The Westbrook injury is another kick in the pants for the @Oklahoma City Thunder ...wow! Need to hang in. Bet there will be a strong closing run #NBA

Steve Kyler

So Russell Westbrook broken hand expected to cost him 4-6 weeks... Time for those young guys they have been grooming to step up.

Jerry Zgoda

If Russell Westbrook's broken hand does keep him out 4-6 weeks, that's right on the line for Dec. 12 game vs. Wolves, season's first meetnig

Jonathan Feigen

If KD, Westbrook return mid-Dec. and win last season's 72 %, OKC would have to go 7-13 w/out them to reach the 50 wins probably takes in WC.

Kevin Ding

It's so early, but everything matters for OKC. My column on Westbrook's hand nudging title window a bit more shut: bleacherreport.com/articles/22512…

Quixem Ramirez

Not so fun what if: OKC drops to 8th, because of the insane conference and injuries to KD + Westbrook. They draw the Spurs in 1st round.

Dan McCarney

So both Westbrook/Durant could/should be back for X-Mas Day game in SA. Would miss 22 games or so in the meantime.

Lang Greene

Russell Westbrook didn't miss a single regular season game during his first five seasons in the league. Now on an injury streak.

Anthony Slater

Westbrook injury came two weeks to the day after Durant's surgery. Puts both stars on same 4-6 week timetable.

Emiliano Carchia

Thunder PG Russell Westbrook may miss 4-6 weeks of action sportando.com/en/usa/nba/139…

Mark Followill

The Oklahoman reporting that missing 4-6 weeks could be the time frame for Russell Westbrook, he broke a bone in his right hand last night

Zach Lowe

Thunder are 0-2, and if Westbrook is really out 4-6 weeks, facing maybe 20 games w/o Durant and Russ. In the West, that is real danger.

Chris Palmer

Russell Westbrook will be out 4-6 weeks.
