Thunder's Westbrook to have knee surgery

HOUSTON (AP) - Oklahoma City Thunder coach Scott Brooks says All-Star point guard Russell Westbrook is scheduled to have knee surgery on Saturday.

The team announced Friday that Westbrook would need the surgery to repair cartilage in his right knee and that he would be out indefinitely.

Westbrook, who has a lateral meniscus tear in his right knee, was hurt when rookie Patrick Beverley tried for a steal in the second quarter of Game 2 and ran into his knee.

Brooks also said on Saturday at the team's shootaround that Reggie Jackson would start for Westbrook later in the evening in Game 3 of the best-of-seven series, which the Thunder lead 2-0.

It will be the first time Westbrook has missed a game in his career. He has appeared in an NBA-best 394 consecutive regular-season games and each of Oklahoma City's 45 playoff games.
