Russell Westbrook left Friday’s game at Toronto with a knee injury, putting the Thunder’s championship hopes into question more with each hobbled step he took toward the locker room midway through the third quarter.

“I feel good, man,” Westbrook said. “I’m pain-free. I’m just going to, (Saturday), get it looked at and go from there.”
