Oklahoma City Thunder guard Russell Westbrook is targeting Feb. 20 to come back from arthroscopic surgery on his right knee, according to Yahoo! Sports.
Westbrook has been out since late December and was expected to be out through the All-Star break.
The All-Star Game is Feb. 16 and the Thunder return from the break Feb. 20 against the visiting Miami Heat.
Westbrook sustained a torn lateral meniscus in his right knee during the second game of the NBA playoffs last April. He had surgery on April 27, and had another operation on Oct. 1 to remove a loose stitch from the first procedure.
He returned to action ahead of schedule and ended up missing just two regular-season games.
Westbrook averaged 21.3 points, 7.0 assists and 6.0 rebounds per game in 32.9 minutes as the Thunder won 23 of their first 28 games of the season before the injury. Oklahoma City is 38-10 heading into Saturday night’s game at the Washington Wizards.
