Thunder’s Russell Westbrook fractures hand, out indefinitely dlvr.it/7N1mJy

Sean Highkin

This is the only game in which the Thunder have ever been without both KD and Westbrook: basketball-reference.com/boxscores/2014…

Sam Amick

The Thunder may be able to add player via "Hardship Exception" soon. Four players missing three-plus games to injury to qualify.

David Aldridge

Thunder will likely re-apply for hardship waiver from league after Satirday's game. Per league rules, teams have to play 3 RS games first

Jason Kosmicki

ESPN - NBA: Thunder G Russell Westbrook diagnosed with fractured right hand; uncertain how long he'll be out

Ben Golliver

Thunder's Russell Westbrook suffers fracture in right hand bit.ly/1vmKBGD http://t.co/UwaE4ymVR4

John Schuhmann

Reminder: The Thunder are playing 5 games in 7 days, in Portland, L.A., Oklahoma City, Brooklyn & Toronto. Crazy schedule.

Royce Young

The 2008-09 Thunder went 2-16 in Oct/Nov. Will they do better or worse than that? I genuinely have no idea.

Alex Kennedy

With Russell Westbrook out with a fractured hand, I wonder if the Thunder will look at Gal Mekel. He clears waivers tomorrow afternoon.

Scott Howard-Cooper

Thunder expect to know more tomorrow, after Westbrook is re-evaluated. Home opener on Saturday as part of 3 games in 4 nights.

Chris Sheridan

Scott Brooks tells reporters OKC Thunder star Russell Westbrook sustained small fracture in his right hand vs. LAC. sheridanhoops.com/2014/10/31/5-f…

Jimmy Spencer

Well, this sucks. RT @Darnell Mayberry: Thunder coach Scott Brooks says Russell Westbrook has a small fracture in his right hand.

John Schuhmann

Oof. RT @Darnell Mayberry: Thunder coach Scott Brooks says Russell Westbrook has a small fracture in his right hand.

Anthony Slater

Oh my RT @Darnell Mayberry Thunder coach Scott Brooks says Russell Westbrook has a small fracture in his right hand.

Darnell Mayberry

Thunder coach Scott Brooks says Russell Westbrook has a small fracture in his right hand.

Royce Young

The Thunder finished with eight players, didn't have Westbrook or Durant and turned it over 27 times. AND HAD A VERY GOOD CHANCE TO WIN.

Royce Young

The Thunder deserve an airport greeting for that effort.

Royce Young

Thunder fall to the Clippers 93-90 as Serge Ibaka comes up short on a game-tying attempt. Jones with 32, Ibaka 17, Telfair 11.

Anthony Slater

Serge Ibaka misses a three at the buzzer. Thunder fall to (an extremely impressive) 0-2.

Arash Markazi

FINAL: Clippers 93, Thunder 90.

Arash Markazi

Blake Griffin fouls out on a double foul after that free throw. Clippers 91, Thunder 90 with 4.1 seconds left.

Eric Pincus

Good play by Clippers - bad play by Thunder - pass in to Nick Collison so he can be fouled for 2 FT

Royce Young

The Thunder really need one of their patented four-point plays here.

Royce Young

Thunder ball, down 89-88 with 13.4 seconds left. Perk iso for the win?

Arash Markazi

Wow. Chris Paul just missed both free throws. It's still Clippers 89, Thunder 88 with 13.4 seconds left. Thunder ball.

Eric Pincus

Chris Paul just missed a pair of FT that would have put the Clippers up 91-88 - instead 89-88 Thunder ball 13.4 left

Tim Bontemps

If the Thunder beat the Clippers on the road without Westbrook and Durant after the Knicks-Cavs game earlier ... I give up.

Royce Young

Thunder are within one with 1:44 left. Cinderella!!!

Arash Markazi

Clippers 89, Thunder 88 with 1:44 left. Thunder are playing without Durant, Westbrook and Jackson.

Rob Mahoney

I did not expect to still be watching this game so long after Westbrook's exit, but the freaking Thunder, man.

Janis Carr

Incredibly, the Thunder, with only 8 players dressed, are within 1, 89-88, with 1:44 left

Sam Amick

This is big for Perry Jones, who has the talent to become the next Thunder prospect to take a big step forward. 28 pts on 15 shots, 3 threes

Anthony Slater

Perry Jones now with 28 points on 14 shots. Thunder, somehow, still within six.

Royce Young

Somehow, the Thunder only trail 70-62 after three despite only having eight available players. Jones with a career-high 23.

Kevin Pelton

"Kids, let me tell you about the night Perry Jones ran the point for the Thunder."

Lang Greene

Clippers and Thunder are shooting a combined 5-of-33 from three-point territory.

Darnell Mayberry

Perry Jones is about to run point for the Thunder.

Eric Pincus

Basketball practice with my girls was time well spent - I'll still have the chance to watch Clippers/Thunder 2nd half and get some post game

Robert Morales

Clippers are 3 of 16 from 3-point range, Thunder are 2 of 14. Yikes #Clippers

Eric Pincus

Settling in early in third at Clippers vs. Thunder - Westbrook with a hand injury? Yipes

Royce Young

Fun fact: The Thunder have only played one game ever without both Westbrook and Durant. Happened last season in Boston, won 101-83.

Anthony Slater

Combined 2013-14 per game averages of currently injured Thunder players: 83.8 points, 21.2 rebounds, 18.5 assists.

Royce Young

Thunder lose Westbrook to hand injury wp.me/pPQKk-ldP

Anthony Slater

Thunder's injury list would be #4 seed in East: PG: Westbrook SG: Lamb SF: Morrow PF: Durant C: McGary 6th Man: Jackson 7th Man: Jerrett

Kevin Pelton

Without Westbrook, the Thunder cannot afford any foul trouble. Give up the layup instead of taking a foul.

Anthony Slater

The Thunder is 4-of-30 from three so far this season. Terrible but not entirely surprising, considering who is out.

Sam Amick

Even Thunder fans who are down in the dumps because of this Westbrook hand injury will smile at this. You're welcome- instagram.com/p/uzV5PgDwrr/
