Westbrook, who in his five NBA seasons has never missed a game, was injured in the Thunder’s Game 2 win over the Houston Rockets on Wednesday night when Rockets rookie guard Patrick Beverley lunged into him trying to make a steal in the second quarter.

Westbrook has averaged 24 points over the first two games of this series, both wins by Oklahoma City. ¬†Westbrook remained in the game Wednesday but was clearly hurting after the injury. ¬†He sat out the Thunder’s practice on Thursday before the Thunder’s medical team and specialists determined that surgery was required.

Game 3 is Saturday night in Houston.
