CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Oklahoma City Thunder guard Russell Westbrook had arthroscopic knee surgery Friday and will be sidelined until after the All-Star break. Westbrook will miss at least 27 games. "He will be missed," coach Scott Brooks said before Oklahoma Citys game Friday night against the Charlotte Bobcats. "Obviously we are a very good team with him, and without him were still going to be a very good team." General manager Sam Presti said in a news release earlier in the day that Westbrook has been playing pain-free, but "recently had experienced increased swelling" in his right knee. "After consultation and consideration by his surgeon in Los Angeles, a plan was established to monitor the swelling that included a series of scheduled MRIs," Presti said in the release. "On the most recent MRI it was determined by the surgeon that there was an area of concern that had not previously existed, nor was detectable in the previous procedures, and it was necessary to evaluate Russell further. The consulting physician determined that arthroscopic surgery was necessary to address the swelling that was taking place." Brooks said Reggie Jackson, who is averaging 12.5 points, will start. Jeremy Lamb will also see increased playing time in Westbrooks absence. "Guys believe in what he does for our team," Brooks said of Jackson. "Hes only going to get better. Hes a young point guard in this league." Westbrooks knee problems began in April when he tore his meniscus in the second game of the Western Conference playoffs, sidelining him for the remainder of the post-season and all but ending Oklahoma Citys chances of reaching the NBA Finals. He had a second arthroscopic surgery as the Thunder were preparing for training camp after developing inflammation in the knee. However, Westbrook missed only two regular-season games before returning to the floor. Oklahoma City has since gone on a 21-3 tear with Westbrook in the starting lineup. The five-year NBA player is averaging 21.3 points, seven assists and six rebounds for the Thunder, who entered Friday nights game with a 23-5 record, a half-game behind the first-place Portland Trail Blazers in the Northwest Division. Oklahoma City has won 10 of its last 11 games. In his last game on Christmas, Westbrook didnt look like a player who was in pain, finishing with 14 points, 13 rebounds and 10 assists in a 123-94 rout of the New York Knicks. Brooks said he didnt know the knee was an issue until after Wednesdays game. "Hes passed every medical benchmark and he was playing great basketball, probably some of the best basketball in the entire league," Brooks said. "Were looking forward to him coming back and getting back to the level that he has played at -- and he will." cheap jerseys .

Only this time, theyve lost to each of the three remaining teams in the bracket. The Colts won 39-33 on Oct. 20 in Peyton Mannings unhappy homecoming in Indianapolis. The Patriots won 34-31 in overtime on Nov. 24 in Wes Welkers disappointing return to New England And, San Diego handed the Broncos their only loss in Denver 27-20 on Dec. 12. The Chargers earned a return trip to the Mile High City by upsetting Cincinnati 27-10 Sunday in the wild-card round. The original AFL teams have never met in the playoffs. Some Broncos admitted last year they were overly confident after roaring into the playoffs on an 11-game winning streak only to lose 38-35 in double-overtime to Baltimore, a team it had beaten handily on the road in December. That shouldnt be a problem this time. The Chargers held the Broncos, the highest-scoring team of the Super Bowl era at 37.9 points a game, to their lowest output of the season last month. "Its fresh in our minds that if we dont do our best, we can get beat at home," wide receiver Bubba Caldwell said. "Baltimore a year ago, San Diego a month ago." Denver was without Welker (concussion) against the Chargers that night, which cost them on third down (3 for and in time of possession (22 minutes for Manning, 38 for Philip Rivers). Ryan Mathews helped the Chargers gain more than 100 yards on the ground on first down, a problem the Broncos addressed with the signing of defensive end Jeremy Mincey a few days later after his release by the Jaguars. Mincey has helped seal off the edge and curtail opponents running games. And Welker is set to return for the playoffs after missing the final 3 1/2 games.dddddddddddd But the Broncos also enter the playoffs without star linebacker Von Miller (knee) and a slew of other injured players on defence, one reason they so desperately wanted the home-field advantage and first-round bye again. San Diegos win in Denver was one of four straight that helped the Chargers (10-7) sneak into the playoffs. "SD it is! Excited! Im done with sitting around. Now we have work to do!" guard Zane Beadles tweeted Sunday night. The Broncos and Chargers will be playing at Sports Authority Field exactly one year after Denvers devastating defeat to the Ravens when Rahim Moores mistimed jump allowed Jacoby Jones 70-yard TD catch from Joe Flacco in the final minute that tied it at 35. "The main thing we really learned was as a team, we have to play 60 minutes," Denver wide receiver Demaryius Thomas said. "Nobody is going to give up, because its do-or-die." Broncos coach John Fox and his former offensive co-ordinator Mike McCoy took a lot of heat after that playoff pratfall for their conservative approach late in the game, especially when Manning was ordered to take a knee with 31 seconds and three timeouts remaining in regulation. McCoy was hired as San Diegos head coach a few days later. Under his tutelage, Rivers, who is 6-2 in Denver, enjoyed a resurgent season and the Chargers ended a three-year playoff drought. On Sunday, they won their first playoff game since 2008 — against Mannings Colts. "Im not worried about last year, to tell you the truth," Broncos running back Knowshon Moreno said on Friday. "Im ready for this year, ready for this new season. Last year is last year. Lets get it going this year." cheap jerseys cheap jerseys china cheap jerseys wholesale jerseys wholesale jerseys ' ' '
