OKLAHOMA CITY - Oklahoma City guard Russell Westbrook is fine after leaving Friday's game against Toronto in the third quarter with what appeared to be an injury to his surgically repaired right knee.

A Thunder spokesman said the three-time All-Star had an MRI and a clinical exam Saturday, and team doctors said there were no issues after Toronto's Kyle Lowry inadvertently jumped into Westbrook near the sideline with 7:37 left in the third quarter Friday night.

Westbrook has been playing restricted minutes since his return in February from his most recent surgery. After the contact with Lowry, Westbrook immediately turned and called timeout and bent over in pain. He hobbled along the sideline and was tended to briefly by a trainer before walking off the court with help from centre Hasheem Thabeet.
