Washington Wizards guard Russell Westbrook left the court with an apparent ankle injury during Game 2 of their first-round playoff series against the Philadelphia 76ers. To add insult to injury, a disrespectful fan pours popcorn on the head of the former MVP as he headed to the locker room.
Russell Westbrook suffered the injury after stepping on Furkan Korkmaz’s foot, and play was stopped with 10:28 remaining in the fourth quarter. The Philadelphia 76ers were ahead 98-81 when the Washington Wizards guard sustained the injury.
At the time of the injury, Russell Westbrook was having a horrible shooting night, making just 2-of-10 shots from the field and finishing with just 10 points to go along with six rebounds and 11 assists.
Without Westbrook to contend with, the Sixers proceeded to blow out the visiting Washington Wizards 120-95. The Wizards were led by Bradley Beal, who had 33 points.
Russell Westbrook’s status for Game 3 will be updated by the Washington Wizards soon.
