Thunder Getting Over The Loss Of Westbrook

Posted: Updated:

The Oklahoma City Thunder are back on the court Monday night for just the second time without star points Guard Russell Westbrook.  He had surgery Saturday to repair a torn meniscus in his right knee.

It's game four against the Houston Rockets.

In game three it was evident that Kevin Durant took on an added role with his running mate out for the rest of the playoffs.  He handled the ball more and attacked Houston on his way to 41-points.

But the fellas say they've got to be more mentally stable moving forward as they play without number-zero.

"For us we have to be able to get over that." said Thunder center Nick Collison, "Russ is not going to be with us in the playoffs.  It's a big loss, but it can't always be this big emotional win one for Russell.  It's too much of an emotional roller coaster."

Game four tips off Monday night in Houston at 8:30pm.
