Russell Westbrook Has Surgery On His Knee

Posted by

Former MVP Westbrook underwent a surgery that could keep him out of the opening night game and possibly few more regular season games.

The Oklahoma City Thunder will be without their star point guard for the start of camp. The team announced that he had the arthroscopic surgery on his right knee and will need four weeks before being re-evaluated.

The Oklahoma City Thunder recently signed Paul George to a four-year, 137 million contract and picked up Dennis Schröder in a trade that involved Carmelo Anthony.

Schröder will most likely receive the majority of minutes left behind by Westbrook.

This will produce a interesting start of the Oklahoma City Thunder and may raise a few questions about Westbrook’s overall health given how sudden he needed the surgery.

The Thunder have assured fans that this isn’t something to worry about and it’s standard surgery for someone such as Westbrook who’s very known for his aggressive style of play.

Last season Westbrook logged over 2,900+ minutes along missing 2 games all season long. Averaging 25.4 ppg, 10.1 assists and 10.1 rebounds.

Hilary Duff Says Drinking Her Placenta In Smoothie Form Was “Delightful”

Hilary Duff and Matthew Koma welcomed their baby girl, Banks Violet Bair, on October 25th —  since then, we have gotten some adorable glimpses of their adorable newborn with pictures posted on Instagram. Now the 31-year-old is opening up about her experiences with a newborn, and gave in detail of how she consumed her placenta.


It’s been 10 days since Duff gave birth to her daughter, she recently made an appearance on the Informed Pregnancy podcast, where she admitted to consuming her placenta in a smoothie.


“It was the most delightful smoothie I’ve ever had. I haven’t had a smoothie that delightful since I was 10. It was calorie-filled with juice and fruit and everything delicious.” Hilary, who had a drug-free natural birth, couldn’t take her entire placenta in just one smoothie so to avoid taking pills, she has been drinking the rest of it in the form of ice cubes.
