Thunder lose Westbrook to sprained left ankle

NBA

OKLAHOMA CITY — Thunder guard Russell Westbrook left the floor late in the third quarter Monday against the New Orleans Pelicans with what the team called a left ankle sprain.

Westbrook was leaping for a rebound and came down awkwardly, rolling over in pain before slapping the floor. He got up and limped immediately to the locker room.

Westbrook missed the Thunder’s first two games of the season after having arthroscopic knee surgery in September. Entering Monday he was averaging 25.3 points, 8.5 rebounds and 8.8 assists per game.
