According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, Paul George and Russell Westbrook both underwent successful surgeries on Tuesday. George is expected to miss training camp after a procedure to repair a torn rotator cuff in his right shoulder — and will also require surgery on his left shoulder “soon.”
Westbrook went under the knife to repair a torn ligament in a finger on his left hand. He also had his surgically-repaired right knee scoped, but is expected to resume off-season activities this summer.
The Oklahoma City Thunder announced Tuesday that All-Star Paul George underwent rotator cuff surgery to repair a partially torn tendon in his right shoulder. The expectation is he will miss at least the start of preseason training camp, league sources told ESPN.
Along with George — who will also soon have a procedure done to correct a small tear in the labrum of his left shoulder — All-Star guard Russell Westbrook had a procedure done to repair a torn ligament in a finger on his left hand, the team announced.
… [Westbrook] also had a minor procedure on his surgically repaired right knee Tuesday — described as proactive maintenance — that will allow him time to still have an aggressive summer of preparation for next season, sources said. Adrian Wojnarowski, ESPN
