The bad news gets worse for the NBA’s OKC Thunder. In addition to losing MVP Kevin Durant who has a leg injury, guard Russell Westbrook is expected to sit out for at least a month with a broken hand.
Westbrook broke a bone in his hand while going for a rebound in last night’s game against the LA Clippers.
Westbrook appeared to injure himself going for his own offensive rebound, striking his hand on Kendrick Perkins’s back. He was clearly in pain, and removed himself from the game a few minutes later—which is when he got into it with a fan. He briefly returned to the bench in the second half with an icepack, and was wearing a soft cast when he left the arena without talking to the press. Source
While heading to the locker room, Westbrook got into a verbal altercation with a Clippers fan in the stands.
The verbal exchange went something like this:
Fan: “Keep walking b*tch.”
RW: “Hey, watch your mouth n*gga.”
Fan: “What? What?”
RW: Watch your mouth motherf***er.”
