OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Thunder All-Stars Paul George and Russell Westbrook each underwent surgery on Tuesday.
George had surgery for a partially torn tendon in his right shoulder and his status will be evaluated before the start of the 2019-20 season.
George also will have surgery on a small labrum tear in his left shoulder in the coming weeks, the team said in a statement.
Westbrook had two procedures. One was for a torn ligament in a finger on his left hand. The other was an elective arthroscopic procedure on his right knee. He is expected to return to basketball activities in approximately three weeks.
Westbrook averaged a triple-double for the third straight season with 22.9 points, 11.1 rebounds and 10.7 assists per game.
