Oklahoma City Thunder guard Russell Westbrook will undergo surgery in the coming days to repair a lateral meniscus tear in his right knee, the team announced today.

Westbrook was injured in the second quarter of Game 2 of the first-round playoff series against the Houston Rockets.

Westbrook knocked knees with Houston guard Patrick Beverley early in the second quarter of Game 2. Westbrook was dribbling up court, about to call a timeout, when Beverley lunged at the ball and the players' knees collided.

The three-time NBA All-Star averaged 23.2 points (6th in NBA), 7.4 assists (7th), a career-high 5.2 rebounds and 1.77 steals (9th) in 82 games this season.
