Royce Young of ESPN.com has reported that Thunder guard Russell Westbrook has had an arthroscopic surgery on his right knee as a preemptive maintenance procedure.

If Westbrook is forced to miss any time leading into the regular season, it’s probably best that it’s in the first week of two of the season. The Thunder only play two playoff projected teams (Golden State & Boston) in their first 7 games.

Of note, this is the same knee that Westbrook has had operated on 3 times previous, as noted here by Ben Golliver. The last procedure came in December of 2013.
