With 2.6 seconds to play in the first half, Russell Westbrook slipped running down the court and went down with an apparent hip or ankle injury.
Oklahoma City was inbounding the ball as Westbrook began to sprint down the sideline. As he attempted to plant his foot and come to a stop, he slipped and fell to the court. After laying on the court for several seconds, Westbrook got up and walked to the locker room on his own. Via @cjzero.
It was at least the fourth time a player slipped during the first half. This is the second game played in the Staples Center today and third in the last 24 hours, including ice hockey. Kobe Bryant and Ramon Sessions slipped earlier in the game while dribbling. Westbrook returned to the game for the start of the second half.
