Russell Westbrook was forced to leave in the third quarter against the Raptors with a right knee injury.
Westbrook was ruled out to return with the team calling the injury a right knee sprain. He'll be evaluated again on Saturday.
And yes, if you're wondering, that's his surgically repaired knee that he suffered a torn meniscus in last postseason and then had two arthroscopic procedures on this season.
On the play, Kyle Lowry bit on a pump fake and crashed into the side of Westbrook's knee. He immediately called timeout, spiked the ball and began to limp towards the locker room.
The actual contact is eerily similar to the way Patrick Beverley collapsed Westbrook's knee back in April, with it coming on the outside of it and pushing it in.
After the game, Westbrook told the Associated Press: "I don't expect to miss any time. We'll just see how it goes."
