Toronto’s Kyle Lowry bumped into Westbrook’s right knee and Westbrook limped off the court and into the lockerroom. He did not return. The Thunder went on to win in double overtime, getting 51 points from Kevin Durant.
Westbrook will not play in both games when the team has back-to-back games and the team will continue to monitor his health, according to Slater.
Oklahoma City played at Cleveland on Thursday, but Westbrook didn’t play. Westbrook started at Toronto on Friday. The team plays at home against Denver on Monday and then at Dallas on Tuesday. Coach Scott Brooks has not said which game Westbrook will play in.
