Per SI report:

The Thunder announced Friday that Russell Westbrook has undergone arthroscopic surgery on his right knee, the third procedure on the knee since April. The three-time All-Star guard is not expected to return to the court until after the NBA's All-Star break in mid-February, which is roughly seven weeks away.

Given his current estimated recovery timeline, Westbrook is expected to miss Oklahoma City's next 27 games. The Thunder currently have the second-best record in the Western Conference at 23-5, just a half-game behind the Blazers.
