Russell Westbrook got his face dented at the end of Thunder-Blazers

Russell Westbrook looked like this as the final seconds ticked off the clock of the Thunder's loss in Portland:

Was ... was there always a noticeable divot in Russell Westbrook's face? Pretty sure that wasn't the case. Here's the play where it happened:

He appeared to bang his head against Andre Roberson's knee, and he came up with an armpit on his face. Might wanna get that checked out? Also, what the hell is Russell Westbrook's skull made of? And will holding a lighter up to his cheek like a dented ping-pong ball fix this?

Update: Yes, that was a dent. Westbrook had surgery Saturday for a fractured cheekbone and will miss time.
