The Oklahoma City Thunder lost Russell Westbrook for a while after a lateral meniscus tear in his right knee. After playing in 394 continuous game, which leads the league, Westbrook's status for the season opener appears to be in jeopardy. He participated in the team's practice but was limited. When asked if he would be ready for the season, he replied with "Not sure", as reported by Hang Time Blog. However, he is postive mentally about his return.Asked about his state of mind, Russell Westbrook says he's "Positive. Always positive" and "confident."— Darnell Mayberry (@DarnellMayberry) September 27, 2013“I just know I wake up in the morning, I get to my rehab and then go back to sleep and do it all over again,” Westbrook said. “I just take it one day at a time and try not to look ahead. When something like this happens you have to take it slow. There’s no need for me to rush into looking ahead at the schedule or anything like that, just taking one day at time and try to find a way to get back.”Prior to his injury, Westbrook was relentless in his play. Driving to the hoop with the help of his freakish athleticism was his style of play. After he comes back, don't expect anything different. Westbrook stated that not much will change in his game.Last season, Westbrook averaged 23.2 points, 7.4 assists and 5.2 rebounds per game, incredible stats for a point guard. Follow @hoopsinjurynews
