Russell Westbrook ran to the Wizards' locker room with 26 seconds remaining in their loss to the Sixers on Wednesday night, later revealing he dislocated his finger. He did not specify which one, but did sport a wrap over the ring and pinky fingers on his right hand during his postgame teleconference.
"I dislocated my finger. We'll see," Westbrook said. "S--- hurt. I'll be alright."
Westbrook had 20 points, 12 assists, eight rebounds, three steals and a block, but also six turnovers. The loss dropped the Wizards to 2-6 on the season.
Head coach Scott Brooks didn't have an update on Westbrook when he addressed the media and Westbrook wasn't sure of the severity.
When asked if he will miss time, Westbrook said: "I don't have an answer for that. The game just finished 30 minutes ago. I have no idea."
Westbrook is likely to sit one of the Wizards' next two games anyway, given they have a back-to-back coming up against the Celtics on Friday and the Heat on Saturday. He has been limited in back-to-backs this season due to rest.
The Wizards are 1-5 with Westbrook in the lineup this season and 1-1 without him. The lone win came against the Timberwolves on New Year's Day.
Through six games this season, Westbrook is averaging 20.5 points on 39.5 percent shooting with 11.8 assists and 10.7 rebounds.
Tune in at 6:30 PM to NBC Sports Washington on Friday for complete coverage of the Wizards' next game against the Boston Celtics.
