Paul George, Russell Westbrook Undergo Successful Surgeries
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
