Russell Westbrook hurts hand, exits

— -- LOS ANGELES -- Oklahoma City guard Russell Westbrook exited Thursday's game against the Los Angeles Clippers with an injured right hand with 6:35 left in the second quarter and will not return, the Thunder said.

He will be re-evaluated Friday.

As Westbrook was walking back to the locker room, he had to be restrained from a heckling fan yelling at him from above the tunnel.

Westbrook appeared to injure his right hand while going up for rebound and hitting Kendrick Perkins' elbow. After the play, Westbrook grimaced and looked down at his right hand as he tried to make a fist.

Without Westbrook, the Thunder, already playing without Kevin Durant, Reggie Jackson and Jeremy Lamb, are left with eight available players.
