Westbrook rolls ankle-Shriek was horrific-OKC Star out

It was something that you never want to hear.  A person that has injured himself in a sporting event and the shriek that the hurt screams as of the fear and pain suffered.  Russell Westbrook did just that last night during the third quarter NBA game between the hometown Oklahoma City Thunder and the visiting New Orleans Pelicans.


As Westbrook went up for a rebound and then came down on the foot of Pelican great Anthony Davis, Russell’s left ankle rolled completely over, causing a major sprain that could keep the dynamic Thunder star out for an undetermined time.  As of this article, Westbrook’s time table for returning could be anywhere from a few days to a couple of months.  The examination last night in the Chesapeake Energy Arena showed that Westbrook’s ankle was deemed as a sprain and no structural damage was found.
