Oklahoma City Thunder guard Russell Westbrook spoke to the media on Saturday for the first time since he suffered a fractured right hand against the Los Angeles Clippers on October 30.
Westbrook says he's trying to stay positive and is trying to teach and encourage the younger players as he nurses his injury, which will keep him out at least three more weeks.
Westbrook also talks about his initial reaction to the injury, saying he was "pissed off" when he realized it was a serious injury.
Westbrook had surgery on the hand and according to the Thunder, he will be re-evaluated four weeks after the surgery to determine his status.
The Thunder are now 1-5 on the season after a 91-89 loss to Memphis on Friday night at Chesapeake Arena.
OKC hosts Sacramento Sunday night at 6:00.
In this video you'll see and hear comments from Westbrook and head coach Scott Brooks.
